    Deathstroke EVERY day of the week...

    Lex almost demands Superman (who I wouldn't want as a supporting char), but Deathstorke? Perhaps some pesky Titans to slaughter and torture, the agony of what he's done to his kids coming back to haunt him... Deathstroke has plenty o material...

    Why would Slade slaughter and torture the Titans? He was never out to kill them in the first place (although his employers were), and he's most certainly not a sadist.

    Hmm... perhaps I overstated my thought... what I MEANT to say was mercilessly defeat the Titans as a part of a contract or a larger scheme, not unlike his Villains united madness...

    Slade sucks in Villains United. It's following the new tradition started by Geoff Johns to completely butcher his characterization. Johns turned him from an honorable masterless samurai type to a nutjob who would shove a live grenade down a baby's throat if you paid him five bucks.

    yeah, Joker would make the best standalone villain film. he's recognizable enough to carry his own film.

    I would have to say Joker. Lex Luthor Maybe. The other ones would either do poor business or flop.

    Lex Luthor
    Darkseid
    Bane
    The Joker
    Ra's Al Ghul

    I feel these villians could carry their own film. Ra's Al Ghul would be an interesting story simply because of age and the lazarus pit. The Joker could definitely work if they go in the direction of the Killing Joke. Lex Luthor could definitely hold his own film. I actually choose Bane because he is definitely an interesting character. The film should focus on more of his backgroud. It could work if it is done right but it could also be too much of a liability.

    Ra's or Lex would make for the most intresting movie IMO, however the Joker would make for the biggest hit - especially if it is done TKJ style.

    Deathstroke. The synopsis here would be awesome:
    Deadshot. Base it on his original miniseries, then use "Urban Renewal" as a sequel.

    The Suicide Squad. Have it be a spinoff of Deadshot's movies (or vice versa).

    Darkseid and the New Gods = Star Wars on steroids.

    My vote would go to Mr. Freeze. My take on it would be less actiony and more story based. I'd have most of the story revolve around his relationship with Nora and him trying to find a cure for her. I like the TAS take on his story. Maybe a condensed version of it, where his boss closes the project to save Nora's life and Victor becomes Mr. Freeze. He almost gets revenge, but Batman would make a cameo and stop him. In the end I'd have WayneCorp find a cure for Nora and her remarrying, thinking Victor dead. Quite tragic

    I kind of agree. I think Luthor would be the best villian for a film, but I would take a more GoodFellas/Sopranos take to it. Make it a story about a criminal working h is way up to be the boss of a huge criminal empire. He is after all, "The greatest criminal mind of our time!"

    Clearly it has to be GOG from superman!!! The film would start with him idolising Superman etc, then getting neglected and gaining his pwer, then we get to see him hunt down supermen from across dimensions, so we get kick ass fights and finally we see superman get beaten and killed!!! What more do you want from a film!!!
