Isn't David Goyer doing the film Supermax with Green Arrow as the lead character? If they're planning on possibly giving Green Arrow his own franchise, perhaps having the character play a major role in a Batman film may not be a likely occurrence.

But anything's possible.

AMH is no one. He will probably be just another science geek.

OK, Im fairly convinced that AMH is Sionis. His hatred of Bruce Wayne would be a wonderful parallel to Joker's hatred of Batman, and would match the theme of escalation. Plus, it would create one of those wonderful "how is Batman supposed to save Bruce Wayne?" situations.

Perhaps the secret twist might end up being that Black Mask literally scars Harvey? Didn't Goyer say that Joker scars Harvey into Two-Face? Maybe he meant that in a figurative way, like Dr. Rudolph unveiled the inner-Harv in Eye of the Beholder, i think it was called.

I don't think that Sionis would detract film time. we don't have a creation story to sort out, so it will seem much longer because of more Batman screentime. Plus, i don't think that Maroni is going to be a positively huge role, but who knows.

The only problem with that theory is that with Maroni in the film, it'd seem silly for someone else to do Dent's scarring.

Thats not a bad idea at all. Theres a good chance that he could be Arkham.....And that would be a nice addition to see in this Batflick series

I think the fact that this whole thing's being played up as a huge surprise, people are thinking it'll be someone we all know. And in terms of appearance, there are few characters that really scream "Anthony Michael Hall!" Add to that the talk of a "Batman wannabe" and it seems reasonable that Hall could be playing a hero, not a villain. Plus, you've got this talk of Supermax on the horizon and it might be possible to intro the character in TDK.

So when you do the math, you've got...Big surprise + Hall's appearance + Other vigilante(s) + Supermax = Ollie?

Personally, I think it's a bit of wishful thinking (which I'm guilty of), but given what he know, it's a reasonable guess.

Exactly. That's just ONE good reason why he won't be Green Arrow. seriously, you gnats, STFU about Green Arrow!!

Wouldn't Nygma fit to be the attacker for Bruce?

Yeah I remember that as well. Makes sense. Although there was another rumour that Joker would attack Wayne Corp with Bruce having to defend his coworkers, so it could be that as well.

As I said before everything adds up to this being Nigma, but still something just doesn't seem right about it. Too goo to be true maybe.

Black Mask is a businessman who's working with the mob who killed his own parents and had been a criminal long before the mask was burned to his face. This is who Hall will be playing.

Earle Jr.? Another lame ass mob-boss?? Azrael??...... you all think that's worth $200 mill?? ........ sure.

Azrael? somehow i couldn't imagine anyone but the uberdorks orgasiming over that surprise... while the rest of the world would sit there wondering just "who the hell is that?"

i could see Nygma, but i'm still going with my hunch about AMH being "a real Joker"..... somehow i can't imagine Nolan choosing to upstage the JOKER with a hidden secret twist with the Riddler. as far as Batman villains go everyone knows who the more popular villain is, as far as those two are concerned.

but then again, whatever...... if anyone has something pissy to say, i got a great place in mind where you can stick it.

Yeah, Nolan's going to reuse the same kind of twist from the first movie in this one.

He has no originality at all.

Then Al Pacino and Robin Williams can show up and do whatever the hell Insomnia was about, I dont really remember.

It is a great way to intro him ito his own movie (Supermax) and get both Batman and Green Arrow ready for JLA.

How is this for an ending? The Joker has batman on the ropes and it looks like the end for Batman. But just before Joker can cut a smile into batman's face, his knife goes flying out of his hand. And there in his hand is an green arrow.
Hate that ending. How ineffective does that make Bats look?

But not in his own movies. I don't recall Daredevil coming in to Save Spidey in any of those, or Plastic Man showing up to get Superman out of another fine kryptonoite mess he's gottne himself into. IMO, this movie is about BATMAN, not his mates. Save Green Arrow for the JLA movie.

I hope he's not The Riddler, a character that's never appealed to me. I'd much rather Hall plays Bobo The Detective Chimp than The Riddler.

Maybe he's one of the vigilantes pretending to be batman, and then when Joker faces off in the ending we found out it isn't really Batman, just Anthony Michael Hall pretending to be him. It's a stupid idea but its better than some of the stuff you guys came up with.

If Hall's hyperbole is correct, then the revelation of his character's identity has to be huge with regards to not just pimply faced fanboys, but also general movie audiences, who can't tell Oliver Queen from Dairy Queen, and can't even count the names of Batman villains they know on the fingers of one hand.

Now he is not The Joker, he is not Two-Face, and he is not Catwoman (alas). He can't just look at the camera near the end of the film and say, "Gee, I am Killer Croc" because nobody would give a toss, so his character needs to be linked to the events of The Dark Knight for it to have some sort of resonance. Exactly what that is I don't know.

I'm officially convinced he is Detective Chimp, the most reasonable thing I've read in this thread.
