Black Mask, Clayface, Riddler, Penguin are the only ones I can think of that would work for the first movie. Either combination. Unless they're doing Arkham Asylum then appearances by Joker & Croc are a must.

You're definitely not. But you might be the only one who thinks he's the only one that thinks that.

I would love to see Mad Hatter, Hugo Strange, Killer Croc but I don't think any of them can be main villains though.

Even as a fan of Pyg he shouldn't be used. He was a villain crafted for Dick and Damian, and should remain that way.

Now that you mentioned it, yes, it's a good point.

I was thinking start with Freeze and Riddler, a combination of physical and mental challenge. Let's say Freeze wants revenge like in TAS, and Riddler is this criminal genius who manipulates Freeze into going after Bats. Then gradually reveal the rest of the Arkham inmates (I like my idea in another thread of showing them on their downtime so the audience can get to know them) and maybe build up to this big confrontation with all of them a la the Arkham games.

I was thinking Mr Freeze, he's an interesting character when developed correctly, but would the stigma of Batman and Robin stop a film with freeze as the lead villain being successful? Cinema-goers tend to have long memories.

WB will want a succesful film, so i would assume they would want the Joker, as he's the most famous member of the Rogue's gallery. If they do Joker again, this time they have to put Harley Quinn in it, just to change it up a bit, and try to distract people from comparing this Joker to Ledger and Nicholson.

Imo the villain should depend on the kind of story or the focus of the story you want to tell. For instance, I don't think they should go with a Clayface or a supernatural villain just for the sake of showing this Batman inhabits a world that could fit into JLA.

By the same token , I don't think they should shoehorn a villian like Mr.Freeze, Ivy, or Penguin because they weren't done right the first time.

On the other had I wouldn't want to see Maroni and Falcone plugged in again to tell yet another Frank Miller inspired gritty Batman crime story.

I think there are odviously villians like Joker, Catwoman, and Two Face who by default will probably re-appear again because of their popularity and marketability, but I would hope with that the villain they would go with would really be central to the story and not just plugged in to sell toys ala the Schumacer series.

Yeah that's the thing I have to always remember.

Id love to see Freeze. But it has to work for the story. I don't see it happening for a few films though. Also, coming off a winter film like Rises (well, the last half)...I don't see them diving into another.

It has to be about the story and the fact that this new Batman will probably be a more exaggerated detective. Like he is in comics/animation. So Riddler would fit. But again it's about the actual story and Bruce's arc.

For the first movie it would be a marketable villain to get the people in the seats. Riddler or Penguin. Whichever one fits the story (that will be the mindset of WB). I don't see it being a complicated story though. But is Batman solving puzzles and crimes really a new/fresh/interesting story to tell at this point? It sounds boring. So as appealing as Riddler is I might get bored.

Maybe they should just begin with Arkham Asylum. The loose adaptation. There's your story. There's your tone. Then figure in your villains.

The riddler. Maybe we could get the 'World's Greatest Detective' version of Batman we've all been clamouring for.

I feel like Nolan would be well suited for a movie with the riddler, shame he's done with it.

Mr. Freeze

I don't want Joker for awhile. Yes he's Batman's top villain, but I want to see some of these other villains done right.

I cant get enough of Joker, I wont lie. If he's announced for the first, he better be with Harley Quinn. But I do think it's best they reference him in the first and bring him into one of the sequels. Have him in Arkham from the start and then put the focus on other villains.

Freeze and Penguin are the villains im dying to see done right.

Freeze like the Animated Series and Arkham City.

Penguin like Pain & Prejudice. Even Arkham City he was dope.

I believe if we are going to see a Joker / Harley plot, we should see the Joker corrupt Harley. At the same time, Bruce will be bringing the young Dick Grayson under his wing. So you have a parallel - opposite sides of the coin training their sidekicks, instilling in them their "values."
