Re: Bane's place in the rogues gallery post-Rises
On top of that most people aren't aware that Penguin's character has been altered significantly since '92. I don't think there's any doubt his stature has been diminished though, even Bane would probably rank higher in terms of public awareness now, or at least be on equal footing. 'Mob Boss' Penguin could easily have made his way into the Nolan series I believe but I'm doubtful his role would have been of any great significance. Something tells me a big rewrite of the character is going to be needed in order for him to see the cinematic light of day again. I like some of the ideas that Batman Arkham City brought to the character.
