For some reason, I always wanted to see Rupert Thorne in a live-action film, but I can't picture a right spot for Thorne to be in anywhere in the trilogy.
And if TDKR ever continued with Blake as the new Batman, I would love to see Tony Zucco being used as the one responsible for his(Blake) father's death. Maybe with all the new gear he has, Blake starts to finally investigate into his father's death and that's where he finds out about Zucco.
Rupert Thorne would have worked pretty well replacing Carmine Falcone in Begins.
