Director of The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan, has announced that the sequel The Dark Knight Rises will begin shooting in May, according to ComingSoon, while CinemaBlend.com is perpetuating the rumor that Robin Williams might play Dr. Hugo Strange.
Nolan has also made casting announcements (Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, Tom Hardy as Bane). He has not, however, addressed circulating rumors that Williams will play Dr. Strange. The Twitter account @BatmanOnFilm, which Cinemablend calls “among the most trustworthy” spots for Batman information, got the rumor mill churning with one simple tweet.
