I've never heard of anyone ever referring to the Riddler as their favorite character, villain, anything. Among the hardcore fans, Red Hood seems more of a fan favorite to me.
I'm not saying that he won't work at all, I'm suggesting WB push a character that I believe has more potential in Red Hood. If he takes off, thew just expanded the characters that they are marketing. This isn't just about marketing a movie, it's about toys, clothing, books, all the peripherals. They would then be able to push both characters in the future.
