Re: The "Nolan's views on Batman villains" thread
I feel the Hush connection to Bruce's past would feel more forced; it hinged on the villain being a childhood friend of Burce's. I'd prefer that relationship be developed or touched on in at least two films prior to Hush's appearance. During all the Riddler speculation, I was actually hoping Deathstroke would be the villain in here. He sounded more intriguing than what Riddler could bring to the table this late in the game.
"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
