    He really wouldn't fit right in because Christopher Nolan has stated several times that he's portraying a young Batman, which is why all the villians have been young (ie. Cillian Murphy, Heath Ledger) Nolan said this is the final film in his trilogy which portrays a young Batman and he said that he's sure the studio will continue the series with an older Batman and will include Robin, but for now, this is a younger portrayal of Batman and the characters. The two names that have been hanging around for a while are Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jackson Rathbone, both which have been called back several times for auditions and are on the top of the casting grids. The only reason that DiCaprio's name is coming up is that he worked with Nolan on Inception, other than that, it doesn't make sense for him to casted.

    EDIT:

    The thumbs down?

    Nolan has publicly stated several times that all his villians will be young, he wants his trilogy to portray a young Batman and young villians. So whoever thumbed me down clearly hasn't heard this...

    EDIT:

    cyberlarry: yes, Levitt is definately going to be the riddler, but they had to see if the contract could get done due to other commitments to other films, but im sure theyll work something out. These people dont get that Nolan wants young actors to portray his villians in his Batman films. DiCaprio was never considered. Levitt's always had the role in the bag.

    That might be the worst choice for a villian role in a superhero film since Alfred Molina as Doc Oc.

    I'll never understand that one; a tall dark spanard playing what's supposed to be a short stocky German.

    For the record, it's going to be Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Not a rumor; fact. There is a industry-only casting sheet circulated only in limited number to the major casting agencies & it announced that the part of ridler was being handled by Gordon-Levitt, contract-pending.

    I think he would be great, but have also heard a rumor about Tom Hardy. But frankly anyone Nolan chooses will be fantastic. Marion Cotillard as Cat Woman HELL YES
