Default Re: Which villain(s) should the reboot start with?

I'd like the next Batman movie to show Batman in a world where it is clear that there are threats everywhere.... no more villain origins. Write a story like the Arkham City videogame where multiple villains are involved... no origins, they already exist, and none of them die or are killed off...

Basically, I'm tired of Batman movies where Batman is having "first-time-meetings" to his villains. I want a Batman movie where Batman already fully knows who Joker, Killer Croc, Two-Face, Penguin, Catwoman, Manbat, Clayface, Riddler, etc already are, he's fought them all already...

So not every villain needs to be in the movie, but villains not shown on-screen can be referenced, or acknowledged, so Batman's world can finally feel FULL, and TEEMING with a collection of adversarys.

Nolan seemed to want to fill Batman's world with interesting characters, but he still killed Ras, Two-Face, and the Joker disappeared....
This is exactly what I want to see in this series. It should start off a couple of years into Batmans journey, but he's met almost every villain and character. Dick Grayson hasn't arrived in his life yet, and maybe 1 key villain like Hugo Strange, inside Arkham, is somebody he hasn't been exposed to yet but everyone else have their origins behind them.

"Lets make one thing very clear here - Nolan's films are as faithful an adaptation as there is. It pays homage to its source material, remains true to its characters and above all else places the story first and foremost." - jmc
