I thought the majority of the cast speculation was over at this point but according to Hypable and a reliable source, The Riddler is set to appear in The Dark Knight Rises.  The source is claiming that a casting sheet with all major characters lists Edward Nygma with a blank space next to it signifying that the role hasn’t been cast.

There is no way to confirm or deny the rumor at this point but it could point to Joseph Gordon-Levitt as originally considered.  Frankly I don’t think there is much to this rumor and it is merely that, a rumor, perhaps even false information to throw off prying eyes. 

Here is an excerpt from the Hypable post:

As of April, it doesn’t look like the character had been cast, but that most likely has changed now, nearly 4 months later. Below is how our source described the document to look:

EDWARD NYGMA (LEAD) –
BRUCE WAYNE/BATMAN (LEAD) – Christian Bale
ALFRED PENNYWORTH (LEAD) – Michael Caine
BANE (LEAD) – Tom Hardy
SELINA KYLE (LEAD) – Anne Hathaway
FEMALE LEAD (LEAD) – Marion Cotillard (attached)
