As we all know, in The Dark Knight, Batman was introduced busting Scarecrow's drug deal. It was a brief but awesome scene that used a villian that was not seen throughout the rest of the movie.

Now, who do you think should open the third film? I think this Batman intro is a perfect way to fit in an extra lesser known villian from the comics.

I say it should be Firefly, Mad Hatter (with his whole Wonderland gang), or Scarecrow again (the only recuring villian.)
 
I think it should be a crime being committed that shows no stoppage from Batman. And then it cuts to a newscast with perhaps Anthony Michael Hall now suddenly wondering where is Batman to stop their heinous crimes.

It would tie in nicely with Bats saving his life at the end of TDK.

Then, maybe Bruce watching the newscast from the makeshift cave with Alfred wondering if he's going to spring into action. Bruce and Alfred talk about the world not wanting Batman right now, and he's going to respect the city's wishes. Something to that nature.
 
depends on how the storyline is ..... here's a brief of my take

1: a flashback scene in which RA'S AL GHUL is rescued from the train wreck from the end of BATMAN BEGINS, is taken to a location and put into "a lazarus pit" (notice the double quotes)

2: NOT having a crazed costumed loon, but as gotham sinks back into anarchy as the joker's legacy spreads and batmans infamy continues, the mob guys gain strength and build their criminal empires ..... someone like JOHNNY WITTS and ERIK HANSON perhaps!

3: the situation leads up to the introduction of FRANCINE LANGSTROM .....

4: arkham asylum is bought by a company called TGK, and is headed by someone called TALIA HEAD ..... enter the young student HARLEEN QUINZELL, who's fascinated by a certain inmate (WHO COULD THAT BE I WONDER???)

there, pretty much the first twenty minutes of setup there

GET ME WHOEVER IS DIRECTING THE THIRD ONE NOW!!!!!
 
Catwoman getting away with something.

that was my idea for the second TIM BURTON MOVIE!!!!
when i knew she'd be in it ..... she slink into the museum at night to steal a valuable egyptian vase with something actually IN the pottery it was made with!! don't know what as i never got that far :oldrazz:
 
I'd say Firefly because he can really show the escalation of crime in Gotham City. He carries around a flamethrower and flies around on a jetpack. How much worse can one criminal get on his own?

I can also imagine something similar to the Killer Moth. Like how the scene in TDK with the Scarecrow had the fake Batmen in it, this person can pretend to be Batman and be helping out some common criminals.
 
It doesn't even have to involve a minor comic villain. I wouldn't mind seeing Batman break up some ordinary crime on one of his patrols.

At first i was like... isnt this too trivial to discuss? But then i realised that it would be a great opportunity to do a cameo for one of Batman's rogues. Someone Batman could tackle at the beginning (supposedly as his routine) and the movie can begin with the main plot and villain. So congratulations my friend, its a great idea.

Of course, what Rachel Dawes is suggesting isnt bad either:

We didnt see Batman take on low level criminals in TDK or BB. Only in the viral campaigns did we see, well... read in the Gotham Times that batman had stopped a mugging, or pulled a woman out of a car out of control and things like that. And to be honest, we need to see him do that. Its his routine, part of his patrol, and we have only seen him take on the big fish so far.

I am in favour of both suggestions and cant scrap one or the other. So what i am proposing, is that we see Batman take on one of his rogues at the beginning, saving the day when the police couldnt (with the police still chasing him of course) and later on, during the movie, we see Batman on patrol stopping a mugging. Then i dunno, he hears on the radio that the main villain had done something so he rushes there and the plot moves on.

Now, i think that they cant use the Scarecrow again (overkill), and the Mad Hatter would feel odd without any explanation. But Firefly needs none of that. He is a pyromaniac in a suit (if he has a deeper story i dont know it nor do i think its necessary). The police cant stop him and batman comes in and takes him down in a flameproof suit (mouth covered, etc). Then the story moves on....

And its a great way to showcase that batman has many suits for many occasions. I hope that the cave has a huge room full of them, so that would justify why he needs so many.

Well he needs to be out for a reason. He isnt going to come out to buy an ice-cream. Stopping a crime would be that reason. He stops the crime and while the police appreciate it, they start chasing him. I'd like to see them chase him as hard as in the Mask of the Phantasm. They practically killed him in that one.

And i'd like to see him dress up as Matches Malone in order to lay low. In one issue, Gordon arrives at a crime scene and they inform him that an FBI agent is at the scene and doesnt allow anyone near it. Gordon marches furiously towards the scene and when he is about to chastise the agent, the agent says: "dark night eh commissioner?" and gordon instantly knows.
I have written about it a thousand times i know, but that was way too cool and i want to see it on screen.

Firefly doesn't even need the suit. He can just be a nutjob with a flamethrower. That's enough of a threat on its own.
 
That's not enough... He needs the suit. Otherwise what's the point?
 
If they went with a police chase, how cool would it be to just continue the final scene of TDK? But then again, would the batcave be ready at that point? We need a Batcave finally, maybe there should be some gap between the films. But man, that would be rad.
 
I think it should open with a set-up crime by the police, to lure Batman to them. They try to capture him, but he of course escapes.
 
would be cool and like in the construction site scene in TDK have Batman fighting some cops.
 
Open the film with Batman breaking up a drug deal or something.

But it turns out to be a sting operation, a set up by the GCPD.

A chase with the police across rain swept rooftops ensues.
 
Yea I think the film should establish early on that the police will be a "villain" of sorts.

Maybe even have some police taking shots at Batman, either because they are corrupt or took Batman's apparent crimes personally. Much to the despair of Gordon. Who wants to make it look like he is doing his best to hunt Batman, but obviously doesn't want him killed.
 
Kinda' like the scene in Year One.

And it will be interesting to see the mental strain on Gordon in this one, being a cop and trying to inform Bats about the low down.
 
or the cops could create their own batman to fight the true one. A devil batman like in morrison run, and he would go rampage on the city, making bats reputation even worse.

He would appear in the first scene, being quicly defeated, or bats would escape, then we see another bad guy, say riddler or who else you want and we get to see the devil batman returning later in the movie, crazier than ever.

No, that's not a very good idea.
 
How about the police put together their own "vigilante unit" together right under Gordons nose? A unit of police who never liked Batman and take what he apparently did in TDK personally and want him dead, not arrested.
 
And we get to see bullock leading it. And there s a new mayor who isn't a bats supporter, so Gordon can't really do anything against the squad when he learns its existence.

Gordon would definitely warn Batman for traps. The only way i can see them chasing him is arriving at the scene of a crime he just stopped and then chasing him.
