    Default The Dark Knight Rises

    So it's offical. Batman 3 is set to be released in July 20, 2012!!

    How do you all think this is going to stack up against The Dark Knight?

    And who would you like to see as the villain?

    Well, I HIGHLY doubt that it could outdo The Dark Knight. Everything came together with DK, I don't know if lightning can strike twice in the Nolan-verse.

    That said, I DO expect it to be very very good. Batman Begins level at the very least, almost as awesome as Dark Knight at best.

    As for villains, seeing as how Nolan is trying to use only the villains who are partway "realistic" (leaving out Killer Croc, Clayface, and others) I'd really like to see Mad Hatter. Joker screwing with the psyche of the populace was awesome, now let's see someone who can literally control minds.

    And while Nolan doesn't like reusing villains (which I don't know why, he completely saved Two-Face in the movie-verse), I'd like to see Catwoman. The timing is right, and a Nolan-Catwoman would be something very very interesting to see.

    And if Heath Ledger hadn't died *sob* I would have loved to see him again with Harley Quinn, but that's not going to happen.

    Freeze or Bane for me. Wishful thinking I guess.

    Nolan actually went on record saying no Freeze.

    I hope Bale has an ACTUAL cough while filming this movie.

    As stated, Nolan tends to go with the more "realistic" villains, so that actually makes it kinda tough to pick.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a new Riddler, but that might be too "out there" a villain.

    Perhaps the Ventriloquist?

    How tall is Philip Seymore Hoffman?

    Had a discussion a while back that he could play The Penguin.

    Freeze could possibley work.

    My bets Killer Croc, they hinted at him in the second. Plus that fuck the scarecrow is free so....

    Heh. Bet that's because of Joel Schumacher's arnie version.

    I think Bane may appeal to him, if just for Knightfall.

    I'd like to see Catwoman.

    now that the love interest (Rachel) has blown up... we'll have a somewhat jaded Bruce Wayne who focuses completely on his nightly duties. And turning his back on the prospect of love... along comes Selina Kyle.

    Not only would it be able to nicely bridge the mood from the last movie... it will provide a good source of conflict for our hero and another obstacle about himself to overcome.


    and the Riddler would be a great choice to play second villain

    Riddler + Penguin are both famous characters and are rooted in realism that would work WONDERS in the Nolan version.

    One can only hope.

    The Riddler has got to be in there. But I don't think he should be Jim Carrey-esque. He should be like THIS Riddler:





    EDIT: How about Poison Ivy, too?

    If they put Bane in, I hope they use this version:

    He looks awesome in this version! You can't deny that!

    I've got some interpretations:

    The Riddler as a genius psychopathic criminal (Would murderer be out there?) raised by his abusive father to never tell lies, thus leaving clues admitting his guilt. Played by David Tennant.

    The Penguin as a short, fat, bald man with a long nose and cigar as a rival business man to Wayne Enterprises. Has a huge private zoo filled with penguins and has a Tommy built into an umbrella. Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    Talia al Ghul as a woman seeking revenge for the death of her father. Excellent assassin. Eventually gets into a relationship with Bruce, yadda yadda happens, she leaves the country after a confrontation with Bats and we get a shot of her holding a newborn baby. Some fresh new talent.

    If only...

    I heard a long while ago that not only was the Riddler considered, but that David Tennant expressed an interest in the part.
    It was a while ago in a small article though, so who knows if that would actually happen?

    I think Spider-Man 3 showed what happens when you try and use a bunch of villains. Though I did like all of your ideas, especially for the Penguin.

    Good Luck with that opinion.

    On second thought, that would be too unrealistic so I see what you getting at.

    Really guys...from The Batman? No, I want dapper Riddler, like from the original animated series. Here's a render I found:



    And a comic-cover. It would work if the green were toned down to like a hunter green.
