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
"Do you know the terror of he who falls asleep?
To the very toes he is terrified, because the ground gives way under him, and the dream begins."
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?
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.
Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention.
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.
Definitely excited for the movie. No way it'll live up to TDK, though. I don't think.
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?
