Re: Which villain(s) should the reboot start with?
If the Riddler is used, there's a specific way I'd like to see him done. To pull the Riddler off properly, the movie needs to place Batman's detective skills in the spotlight. Rather than make Riddler a maniacal villain who wants to take over Gotham, he should be a personal foe to Batman. There should be a back-and-forth battle of wits between the two as they both try to outsmart each other. The film should be full of reversals and twists, keeping you guessing until the second the credits roll. Think the relationship between Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty in the BBC Sherlock TV series. That's how I'd like to see the Riddler done. More likely, they'd go for him being a grand scale villain, with death traps and plans of conquering Gotham, which I think would be all wrong - you might as well just go with the Joker again in that case. For once, I'd like to see a Batman movie where the stakes are much more intimate rather than based on world domination.
