Re: The "Nolan's views on Batman villains" thread
I think it's true for a few, especially Black Mask and to a point The Riddler, but characters like The Penguin, just for example, are nothing like The Joker.
He didn't say they were all watered down Jokers anyway, he just felt a lot were, and considering he didn't want The Riddler, I'm guessing he feels that specifically about him, which I can understand.
We don't have any way of having any idea what he thinks about Mr. Freeze, Penguin, or Poison Ivy, and I think it's overanalyzing his comment a little, considering he was only talking about a villain to follow The Joker who wasn't too similar to him.
