Robin Williams as Hugo Strange in The Dark Knight Rises?
File this one firmly under ‘tantalising rumour’ for the moment folks: could Robin Williams be set to play Hugo Strange in The Dark Knight Rises? Batman On Film stoked the rumour with a tweet, and Batman News claims to have a source who believes Strange will turn up in the new movie. Rumours about the character’s appearance in Christopher Nolan’s threequel have been circulating for a while now, with Tom Hardy once believed to be playing the character (he’s been confirmed as Bane now).
How about Sgt. Max Cort? A violent, thuggish copper from Batman: Year One follow-up Prey, Cort is placed in charge of a special task force established to hunt down the Batman. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer to start with, Max becomes a pawn in the game of crazed police psychiatrist Hugo Strange, who hypnotises him into becoming a masked vigilante in an attempt to lure the Dark Knight out of hiding.
