Default Re: The Batman Reboot Casting Thread - Part 6

You don't have to hate every villain. Most of the great ones are either sympathetic (Two Face, Freeze, Man Bat) or charismatic (The Joker, The Riddler, Ra's al Ghul) to some extent. Part of the reason I like The Penguin is that he appears to be an unadulterated bastard, but that in itself is almost sympathetic because it is his defense against the short hand life had dealt him.
