GHOST RIDER'S MARK STEVEN JOHNSON, GARY FOSTER AND AVI ARAD

With Ghost Rider arriving in more than 3,600 theaters on Friday, writer/director Mark Steven Johnson said that he and star Nicolas Cage have begun to talk about a sequel.

"We just started talking about it, to be honest," Johnson said during the recent Ghost Rider junket. "When we were in Europe last week, for the first Nic and I can't help ourselves -- now that we're rested and we're not so tired -- we started talking about ideas.

"But you don't want to jinx it. You never know what's going to happen, if people are going to go and if they're going to like it or not. It's not a slam-dunk character. It's not as well known as the other ones.

"If people want it, we would both love to do it."

Johnson was part of a roundtable interview at the Culver Studios lot last weekend with producers Avi Arad and Gary Foster.

THE BATMAN: "RIDDLER'S REVENGE"

Brooke Shields is providing the voice of the Riddler's girlfriend in "Riddler's Revenge," this Saturday's new episode of The Batman and Kidsą WB!.

"She was one of the nicest people I have ever met," The Batman executive producer Alan Burnett told The Continuum. "It was about a week or two before her baby was due and we offered to have her do her lines by herself, but she seemed to be enjoying herself, doing them with all the other actors, putting on a play. She stayed with us right to the end."

Robert Englund returns as the voice of Riddler.

Here's how the episode is described:

"Stuck at the bottom of the ocean with Riddler and no hope of escape, Batman learns he may have played an important role in the creation of this dreaded foe and helps solve a long lingering mystery."

The episode was written by Stan Berkowitz.

"It might be our psychological episode of the season," Burnett said.

DC COMICS CHANGES STORIES FOR WONDER WOMAN
