Default Re: Next Batman Villain?

I want them to retire the Nolan aesthetic.

Let the characters actually be the characters, instead of trying to bend them into something they are not. And for God's sake put off the Joker for at least one film. Try to focus on one of the character who has not been onscreen before and build them up.

Clayface would be an excellent character.

The film does not have to revolve around the destroy-the-city plot, but can involve a mystery with high stakes for Bruce. Clayface and maybe one of the second tier characters could fill the film nicely. After all, Batman is the "World's Greatest Detective": it would be nice if we actually saw him doing some detective work, and distinguishing himself from the other 5,643 generic action heroes whose selling features is that they beat the snot outta people.
