Apparently from the British tabloid The Sun, or more specifically, the gossip section of the Sun — Gordon Smart’s Bizarre. Comments were slowly trickling in, with readers’ reactions generally beginning with statements like, "Oh please God don”t use Eddie!"
Not sure which is weirder — that they would run the story expecting the world to jump on board, or that they didn’t expect other sites (such as Cinema Blend) would refute the news with their own sources.
Admittedly, Hero Complex has pushed for Angelina Jolie to throw her cowl into the Catwoman discussion, but going off of news from "insider sources," the site also speculated that Rachel Weisz was up for the role. Speculation is fine, it’s even fun, but hopefully it’s not reported as news.
Too bad that the impressionist with 100 faces, Emmy-nominated Frank Gorshin (left), isn’t available for Riddler duty.
