    Warner Bros. Apparently Wanted Leonardo DiCaprio As The Riddler In 'Dark Knight Rises' Early On

    It's interesting how the narrative changes. After the monumental success of "The Dark Knight," Christopher Nolan clearly needed a break and a palette cleanser that became "Inception," as per his blockbuster rule (the director also shot "The Prestige" in between the ...
