If Oscar winner Adrien has his way, he’ll be stealing the role Joseph is meant to play!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, beware! We know you’re director Christopher Nolan’s first choice to play The Riddler in the upcoming Batman movie, but Adrien Brody might just steal your thunder!

“”You got to be the villian, you got to give the Batman a run for his money, [playing] The Riddler would be fun”, the 37-year old Oscar winner told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at Lexus’ Darker Side of Green event in LA July 8. He added, “There is a lot you can do with that character. Christopher Nolan is a genius, and I am all for working with amazing filmmakers. If that was to be a reality how could I say No?”

Although the 29-year-old actor IS currently starring in Christopher’s newest film, Inception, and an insider told us he is “definitely on the short list’, Hollywood is notoriously fickle, and things could change. So watch this space, BFFs….
