      There are too many great characters to choose from to do the lesser known villains or repeat any this time around. My money is on Catwoman or Bane

      Oh she doesn't need to actually be cast as Catwoman, I just think we need to see her in a Catsuit.

      Correct me if Im wrong but in an early version of Bane, isn't he a genius of somekind? If they could mix the strength from the 90s movie and his genius in the comics that'd be a sick villain.
      I know Nolan already has an amazing villain lined up.

      Could he be interviewing actresses for Barbara/Batgirl? Or does it not mix too well with Jim Gordon's kids still sort of young in TDK?

      Seriously, it's nice to have directors like Nolan who dont have to rely on crap 3d to make more money.

      If it is, that would be sick. Gaming in 3D is badass.

      I really cannot see Nolan bringing back Ra's in any shape or form. He has done really, really well at avoiding cheap tricks.

      I'm not interested in seeing a catwoman. I just don't see her working out well with the dark realism Nolan brought to the series. Penguin could be done, but it better be an actor of Ledger's talent to bring out the quirks without the corn.

      "We’re looking to do something technologically that’s never been done before,” Nolan said.
      It's not a budget issue, it's a technical issue. The cameras are too big and even the smallest won't work in some action scenes. Nolan has to create his own IMAX camera.

      Don't get me wrong here, I LOVE Christina Hendricks, but.....there aren't enough shoehorns in the universe to get her into a latex catwoman outfit.

      Comic Book Movie got a tip that Theron has been approached to play Detective Sarah Essen, who will be the love interest for Jim Gordon. This character winds up having an affair with Gordon, and it's implied that Essen might be shown to be the real mother of Batgirl. Odd, as we thought Nolan already addressed the Batgirl story, in Batman Begins, perhaps not.

      The next big tip from CMB is the one that has us really excited — actresses Kacie Thomas and Vera Farmiga have both auditioned for the role of Julie Madison, a possible Bruce Wayne love interest. These are two very different actresses indeed, and honestly we hope they go with Farmiga, but let's focus on the character Madison for now. Madison is a socialite/actress, who was actually engaged to Bruce at some point or another. Still the most interesting thing about Madison is her involvement with the villain Clayface. Madison is eventually cast to remake a classic film that originally starred B-list movie star Basil Kalo, an actor not handling his aging very gracefully. Naturally Kalo is beyond pissed about the remake, and decides to start murdering all of the people involved, until Batman intervenes. Who knows if this storyline would turn up in the film, but the Clayface-Julie Madison connection seems promising.

      I know these rumors are a little heartbreaking for Catwoman fans, but this totally backs up our previous guess that Clayface would turn up in this film. Plus the vain-actor version of Clayface is just dying for the gritty Nolan touch. This storyline is almost too perfect in its timeliness, with all the remakes running rampant in Hollywood.

      Vera Farmiga looks a lot like Maggie Gylenhal, based on the quick Google image search I just did. Nolan is certainly giving Bruce Wayne a "type".

      Can someone explain this part to me? I don't recall Batgirl being addressed.

      ...Essen might be shown to be the real mother of Batgirl. Odd, as we thought Nolan already addressed the Batgirl story, in Batman Begins, perhaps not.


      Stupid conjecture about the storyline. Making Batman go after a mere serial killer would be lame. Nolan's stories are more epic than that.

      Theron as some kind of love interest sounds good. I'll shank a bitch if Catwoman turns up in this, but I have faith in Nolan.

    15. 11-02-2010 04:37 PM #40
      The Batman films Nolan has done have been on the ultra realistic side until now. I can't imagine him taking a character like Clayface and making him believable to an audience. If he could pull it off I would be astounded.

      I'm sorry but the title sucks balls. Someone was sweating bricks when they come up with that title. No creativity. As for the movie itself, a verdict can not be made yet.

      Yeah, I absolutely loathe the title. It's horrible. Was hoping they'd do a stand alone title like some of the major Batman story arcs ("The Long Halloween," "A Lonely Place of Dying," etc) or heck, even "The Dark Knight Returns."

      Definitely excited for the movie. No way it'll live up to TDK, though. I don't think.

      TDK wasn't thaaat great. Thought Batman Begins was far superior.

      Anyways, I can see Nolon reimagining Clayface as just another criminal with a disfigured face/body. Perhaps filled with botox and butt/calf/bicept implants gone bad.

      I don't really mind the title. I think Rise Of The Dark Knight sounds better, but I'm just not used to the other one.

      Would it be wrong for Nolan to make up his own villain? Just sayin', since we don't want anything supernatural or mutated to show up, like Pumpkinhead.

      I don't really know the Batman/DC universe all that well. In Nolan's movies so far, the villains have been motivated by psychology. Their physical forms were a result of their psychosis or used as a means for furthering their psychotic agenda. This seems to be an important difference, because with other characters, it's the other way around; their psychosis is a result of their physical form. Guys like Killer Croc, The Penguin, and Man Bat - their looks defined their behavior. Nolan seems to stay away from that.

      So with that said, what other villains exist in Batman's world who are driven psychology first? The Riddler? Cat Woman?

      Poison Ivy might be an interesting choice. An eco-terrorist so psychotic that even folks like ELF are afraid of her?

      Don't like the title.

      He's had good acting thus far (though I'm not a big fan of Katie Holmes).

      Theron is a solid actress. Maybe he's avoiding Vicki Vale due the cheese of the other Batman movies?
