Freeman and Wilkinson on Batman Begins Sequel

Morgan Freeman and Tom Wilkinson both talked about the Batman Begins sequel in recent days. First up, Freeman mentioned playing Lucius Fox again to About.com:

Freeman starts Evan Almighty next week. As for a possible script to Batman Begins 2, Freeman is completely in the dark. “I don’t know. That’s up to the writer and the director. Are you going to write Lucius Fox into the next Batman sequels? If you do, are you going to hire me to do it? If they hire me to do it, I don’t have to worry about the freshness of it. That’s not my job. My job is to take it off the page, just like I did the first time.”

Meanwhile, Tom Wilkinson was asked by Empire Online about his role of Carmine Falcone in the first film:

At the other end of the scale, Batman Begins, where you had a small role in a big film. Was it fun to get in touch with your dark side as such a fantastically nasty character?

I guess so. I rather liked him. I kind of thought it was fun to play. But I thought it was a great role.

It was a real scene-stealer. Would you be back for a sequel?

Well, my character’s mad and possibly dead so I don’t think so.

Well, that’s no bar in comic book movies.

Yeah, I suppose he might come back as the Riddler, just completely off his head.
