We all know that Nolan's view on villains is undoubtedly more realistic then some of the comics, some of Burton's villains and all of Schumacher's. He tends to realistically progress the villains and show them in an atmosphere that makes them real! Like you could go to Chicago or New York and find them! Now what are some villains that have been blindedly deemed bad but are still famous? Penguin Riddler Now some may deem Bane and Freeze bad because of Schumacher's approach, but let's deal with these villains... Why is Penguin considered a bad choice? Fatness, lameness, umbrella's, corniness and obviously the entire look! But let's deal with this. Penguin could be used in a Nolan film (in the future) and still be done right. Loose most of the fat (make him have just a little weight), loose ALL the lameness; make him a real threat to Batman and the GPD. Loose the umbrella's please and give him a semi-automatic machine gun and a knife! If you give a slightly chubby mad-man a machine gun and a black suit (and NO pointy nose and no deformities) and maybe make him a bit grungy and place the right actor on him, then I believe he would make a good choice. Maybe not a main villain... but at least a Mob boss like Falcone and Maroni... but loose the name... Oswald Cobblepot... like Joker, don't give him a name... just call him Penguin! Riddler? This one's a little harder to realistically change into a Nolan villain. But it's certainly possible! First of all, loose the skin-tight cotton bright green suit with black question marks on it. This obviously makes him look like a walking disaster! Give him a dark green, leather trench coat, dark brown hair with a hair cut like this (not the actor, just the haircut): and make him a REALLY evil master mind who uses riddles to trick Batman... and sometime lead him to the jackpot and sometime to disaster... let him work alone and sometimes bribe others... but don't team him up with Two-Face! Or anyone else for that matter... and loose the corny humor... let him be threatening! Cast Jonathan Rhys Meyers for Riddler and you've got a good villain! Bane? Of course he can be a remade as a good villain... Don't make him a huge monstrous villain, but an intelligent muscular villain! Mr. Freeze, if you look at the comics, could be a great villain! As for Poison Ivy? I'm not sure she could work too well on screen... yes, she may have a good body, but I simply don't think she could work... Catwoman is really the only lady villain that could work... Any comments?
