LOS ANGELES - Actor Robin Williams is likely to play Batman nemesis Hugo Strange in “Dark Knight Rises”.
Strange is one of Batman’s first recurring villains in the comic books. He is a villain in the mad-scientist mold and possesses genius-level IQ and is a master of psychology. Strange learns Batman’s secret identity but keeps it to himself. He eventually becomes obsessed with Batman that he starts dressing up like him, reports aceshowbiz.com.
This is not the first time Williams’ name emerges as the possible cast member of this third Batman film from Christopher Nolan. Back in June last year, he was rumoured to portray The Riddler.
