What Dark Knight Fans Want

Latino Review checked out a survey done by Blockbuster that involved "The Dark Knight." I found it interesting and so will you!

"According to a survey conducted by Blockbuster Inc., movie fans are hoping to see Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie play starring roles. The villains that fans would most like to see Batman take on are The Riddler and The Joker's therapist turned girlfriend Harley Quinn.

'Both Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie are actors who can bring a Batman villain to life in the complex, realistic style that have made Nolan's films so popular,' said Keith Leopard, director of film product for Blockbuster Inc. 'It would be exciting to see what they could do with The Riddler's compulsive clue-giving and Harley Quinn's transformation from brilliant therapist to psychotic criminal.'

Other top picks from movie lovers for the next Batman film's villains were Cat Woman, The Penguin and tough guy Bane. Favorite actors to play roles like these included Natalie Portman, Edward Norton and Keira Knightley.

Until a new movie is created, fans can get their Batman fix by heading to a local BLOCKBUSTER(R) store or visiting to rent or buy the 'Dark Knight' DVD on Tuesday, Dec. 9."
