    I know this is still too early to say but I'm going for the dive into the pool of questions anyways. Who would the next Batman villain be? After the appearance and early death of Harvey Dent / Two face we can rule him out as a possibility (as well as the Joker, unless Nolan's lost his marbles).

    The Joker is out...

    Here's a list of possibles - nothing to be confirmed yet anyways.

    • Mr. Freeze - origins will have to be super condensed though lol. Unless Nolan wants to rearrange or totally alter the story of it.
    • Mr. Penguin - Least likely, but still could serve as a mafia king like Black Mask.
    • Black Mask - would really look forward to this crime lord to appear in an actual live action Batman movie, since he hasn't been appearing in any of the previous ones.
    • Poison Ivy - Nolan's been known for using as little CGI as possible. And he likes to keep the sense of realism in his movies (even the superhero ones), so I don't think this will fly too well.

    Superman Movie (Nolan's project) will also be released around the same date...

    This is also a little something else. Nolan has been working on a Superman movie as well. He pitched or one of his screen writers pitched an idea to him, and he really liked it. So him, his brother, and one of the screenwriters they have been working with for a long while have agreed in addressing that Superman will be one of their works that they will be excited about :). Woot. I don't think it will dissapoint.

    Hasn't Nolan stated he doesn't want to use some of the more well-known villains? (Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, etc?)

    Personally I'm hoping for Hush. I think that could be done really well.

    Nolan has flat out said that Mr. Freeze will not happen.

    My guess is on Riddler, Black Mask, Penguin, Janice Porter, or Catwoman.

    Usually Nolan goes with three villains, both BB and TDK had that.

    three villains?
    Batman begins... scarecrow, Ra's al Ghul, and the mob guy?
    The dark knight... scarecrow (very brief cameo), Joker, and Harvey Dent / Two face... ?? including the mob guy - forgot his name... but was he adapted from the comics?

    Batman Begins had The Scarecrow, Ra's, and the mob.
    The Dark Knight had The Joker, Harvey Dent/Two-Face and the mob.

    I'm guessing that the mob will still be present in the third one. So that leaves two other baddies.

    I'm also guessing that those two baddies have to be somewhat compatible together to an overall theme in the movie.

    Both Ra's and Scarecrow dealt with fear.
    Both Joker and Harvey Dent/Two-Face dealt with anarchy and disorder.

    Interesting that you notice those things. I knew those themes were roughly touched upon throughout the movie.
    That's going to be a little difficult for Nolan to approach...

    I bet it will have a lot to do with chasing down Batman for committing those crimes he would carry the responsibility of in Harvey's behalf...

    Yea, I know that the cops will be after him, that's why I think the Riddler and Janice Porter would be good choices.

    Riddler could be after Batman's identity while Janice Porter takes up the new DA spot forcing a full-on man hunt for the Batman.

    Black Mask or Penguin could take the mob position now that the two major mob families have been pushed to the edge in TDK.

    I could be totally off the charts, but whatever. I like speculating. Passes the time. :LOS

    Same here :wtf

    Still questionable - I could totally see Black Mask replacing the mob with his own underlings.
    Lol, I had to google Janice Porter to see what role she played in the DC universe. How ignorant of me. Interesting... she despises Batman's motives and Commissioner Gordon tries to sway her opinion.
    Unfortunately Gordon will feign the pursuit and capture of Batman since he and his son knows where the truth really lies. Wow this sounds good. Nolan could really use this as direct source material, a little rearranging to do of course though...
    I really don't like the goofy looking villains (i.e. Riddler and Penguin) though so hopefully they'll be out >_>

    I wonder if one of the themes in Batman 3 will be isolation. Bruce Wayne is in a pretty lonely spot now. :sniff

    And we need a bad guy that will cause lots of explosions and fighting. That stuff is mighty important. :LOS

    Perhaps. Lol. Batman isolated? Wasn't he always a lone wolf - one man wolf pack ? :amazed He prefers it that way doesn't he. This will give him more of an excuse however lol.

    Explosions & fighting - the very raw substance and essence of the story :p j/k. Pretty sure Nolan wont leave us fans waiting :D

    Yea, true. But what I mean is that his bestfriend/lover is dead, Lucius is on the border of quitting, and Gordon now has to chase after him. It's like everyone besides Alfred is "gone". I think it could be a good theme to focus on.

    There better be. The script is practically done. :argh

    Penguin is out imo, there's just no way he'd fit in thecurrent settings of nolan's batman.

    Ivy or Black Mask are good, Freeze would probably be feasable.

    I'd like to see Bane scrapping Batman's back like it happened in the fall of the dark knight, but I doubt it'd fit in the nolanverse.

    Maybe a mix of Robin/Red Hood, since you know, batman's getting lonely, someone he could relate to, but with an evil twist at the end of the tunnel.

    I don't think an evil robin/nightwing would be past Nolan.

    Not really. Nolan's Batman world is already a dark place. I'm just saying I wanna see him all crazy like and non-cartoonish with gay ass costume.

    Oh yea, totally. Realistic.

    The costume is totally out.

    And if Catwoman was ever to be done in Nolanverse, say bye-bye to the high heels and leather.

    Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy wouldn't mesh with the nolanverse. Bane could work, I suppose. I never cared for bane, and I could care less that he put Batman out of commission for long period of time. He's bland.

    Janice has to be in the third installment.

    Edit: Penguin would bring credibility to gotham's organized crime, which has been nothing but fodder in the first two installments. In TDK the crime bosses were basically Joker's henchmen.

    Riddler and Janice Porter would work out nicely.

    Penguin is a mutant, genetic abberation and ridiculously silly character, there's no way he'd fit in the Nolanverse.




    Spoiler:


    Aw crap, I'm so sick of catwoman I could puke, especially this non-sexy kind.

    Halle Berry was just the last drop for me, after that I just stopped liking the character. I hope the image was fan made

    Yea, she could be done. She has ties to the League of Shadows (or whatever its called in the comic books) without having daddy issues like Talia al Ghul does.

    That's why I said on the border. :33

    I totally agree. I hate her too.

    She's a capable female villain with a long and interesting history that had lead to her being in several great stories over the years.

    She's also pretty much just a dark-female mirror version of Batman some of the time.
