Agreed. Freeze is perfect for the first villain. They can have some horror elements to the character too. I love the comparison of Freeze and Michael Myers. That ominous, slow walk should be emulated for Freeze. Seriously WB, take a look at Arkham City, take that characterization of Freeze, tweak the design, and get a badass actor under that dome, and you can do what TDKR did for Bane. Mr. Freeze of any villain needs to be redeemed. Batman & Robin set that character back so far, but he's so awesome, and has so much potential.
I've 1000% percent supported Freeze as the first reboot villain since day one. He's perfect for it. He immediately sets the new series apart from TDKT
