i just had an interesting thought that i highly doubt anyone would agree with but i'll share it anyway : mads mikkelsen as jonathan crane/scarecrow.







the reason i suggest him is i sort of see jonathan crane as a psychological sadist. he's a person who gets a kick out of manipulating people's minds, exploiting their mental weaknesses, and making people squirm, twisting their minds, which basically describes mads' interpretation of hannibal lecter to a tee, lol. as great as murphy's scarecrow was, atleast right up until the point in batman begins where he gets tased by rachel, he was waaaaay too much of a pushover , and basically.... well, a really useless little wuss, lol. i wish they'd focused more on the character's sadistic side. plus he's got the "creepy evil psychiatrist " part down perfectly as well. idunno, he's such a terrific actor that if he played scarecrow, riddler, joker, black mask, hugo strange and ra's al ghul all in one single batman movie i wouldn't even be mad.

Mikkelsen as Scarecrow? Why not? Good choice.
My favourite for Dr Crane is David Bowie, though.

Haha. At least we just need three actors for the next Batman movie:
Ben Affleck as Batman
Bryan Cranston as Gordon and several villains
Mads Mikkelsen as several villains

Looks like a Monty Python's film.

"Life of Batman"

Given that his last few roles included Son of the Mask and Snow White and the Huntsman, I can't say I blame him.

I don't like the concept as a rough East End gangster. It seems the antithesis of what the character is about.

Not really the antithesis.... they kept the character in tact, he was just from somewhere else. His family could still have ties to old money in Gotham, his story could still parallel Bruces.

I love the idea of Penguin being a British arms supplier.

"East End gangster" is the antithesis of "old money".

In lots of interpretations of Penguin, his family used to have money, and then he turns to a life of crime to reestablish the Cobblepot name. I'm going to have to disagree with you, Arkham City Penguin was actually pretty faithful

No, an East London gangster, in the stereotypical mold, belongs to a particular cultural subset, which is not permeated merely by the circumstances of pursuing a criminal career. I haven't played the Batman computer games, but I have listened to the "interview" files, so I know enough to know that their version of The Penguin is a significant departure.

Aside from this, The Penguin has been riches-to-rags-to-riches, and plain rags-to-riches. Both are legitimate interpretations. But he has never been a naturalised member of a specific culture's established "mob". Turning him into an East London gangster is akin to turning him into a Triad.

Isn't it possible that he isn't just this stereotypical East London gangster?

I'm not familiar with London, are there not old rich families in East London?

But yeah I get what youre saying now, I wasn't familiar with the stereotype, it's a valid complaint

I like the Arkham City version but it's not the ultimate version of Penguin for me. I like the East London thing, but at the same time I don't. It's weird.

I like the Arkham City voice better than Batman: the animated series and The Batman

You'd never portray the character in the same way these days, but I think Burgess Meredith's voice was spot on.
