Because Riddler is another psychological opponent for Batman. Joker in TDK left his cards, his clues in the newspapers etc...theyre not exactly puzzles but the mind games are there. If Batman met up with this guy, he would be throwing him around like a rag doll once again, just like with Joker.

I've always felt Riddler was very close to Joker anyway. There's a lot of similarities there (yes i know they have plenty of differences too).

If this series were to continue on from the likes of Bane, Catwoman and the League of Shadows as a whole...then it would be time to do a Riddler or Penguin. But it was always a bad idea to follow TDK with the Riddler. We would have had a watered down copy of the movie for a sequel. No thanks.
