The threat that villains beyond those already employed by the Nolans would seem miniscule compared to Joker's antics in TDK. That is how the majority of those not yet used and never to be used by Nolan are watered down Jokers.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
