The Daily Dark Knight: Cillian Murphy Back As “Scarecrow?”

Since I seem to be writing about the new Bat-Flick every day now, it seemed appropriate to give my update a title. So welcome to The Daily Dark Knight. At least once a day, I’ll try to whet your very apparent appetite for news about the final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Bat-Trilogy.

Take this one with a ton of salt, but several eyewitnesses claim to have spotted actor Cillian Murphy on the set, sparking fresh rumors that he’s reprising his role as Dr. Jonathan Crane/The Scarecrow. The nerds will remember that he originated the role in “Batman Begins” and his fate was left kind of open-ended.

Via ComicBookMovie:

“Cillian Murphy is returning in TDKR. You can see him at Union Station in Los Angeles, but at least that’s where I saw him earlier on my way back home from taking spy photos. I couldn’t take a picture of him because there are a ton of security guards, but he’s definitely there.

You can take this as 100% legit fact. Scarecrow is in TDKR. He was wearing a black robe, probably to disguise his suit underneath.”

Then there’s this: Presumably an authentic set note that was posted on the movie’s Facebook page:

“It appears that exile means walking a dangerous frozen river on the outskirts of Gotham. Which would coincide with the LA River scene filmed with Gordon and his men tip toeing awkwardly in the leaked video.

Oh P.S. Judge’s identity: JONATHAN F#CKIN CRANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cillian Murphy is back with a bang!”
