Ive said it before...The 3rd film will have the Riddler, Penguin, and Catwoman.
Three villians could work out as long as one of them had a small part like Carmine Falcone did in Begins.
Maybe they could make Penguin a mob boss or have him run a legitimate front for his illegal activities like in The New Batman Adventures.

Not a big fan of Penguin (what's good about the character?).

Personally, the Penguin is my favorite Batman villain. What's so great about the guy is that out of all of the major rogues, he is the only one who does not have an obsession, compulsion, or really screwed up in the head, and he stands out because of it. He can toe that line between out-right criminal and small time. He is one of the few who can both aid and hinder Batman and Bats lets him do his thing because of it. He is a gangster and one of the few that can actually keep up with the other crazies in Gotham.

I would love to see him done "right" in a future Batman film (Nolan or not).

Of all the names rumored about, I'd rather see Guy Pearce as Riddler. Actually, my preferred choice would never even be offered the role -- James Spader.

James Spader...interesting. I would have like to see some how Anthony Michael Hall's character Mike Engel become the Riddler like some early rumors suggested. I think he could pull off an OPD character in the next Batman movie.

^ Why wouldn't Spader be offered the role? Though you're probably right he wouldn't be given the chance. I think he'd be a good choice too though.

Re: Batman 3 rumors

^I've been arguing for ages that DHP would make a great Riddler. I like the Spader suggestion and that of the actor who plays Ben in Lost, which someone made in a similar thread some weeks ago.

I want to see the Riddler portrayed as smart, smug, saracastic and slightly creepy, which any if those actors could do in spades. There's no point in giving us another Carrey or Gorshin routine.

Doesn't matter what Warner wants, really, does it? I would think it's all up to Nolan.
I think because of the success of TDK WB will essentially write him a blank check.
Nolan was not solely responsible for the success of TDK despite how much credit internet denizens might like to give him. The huge box office of TDK only puts more pressure on the third film and thus ensures that the studio will be deeply involved in it - just as they were in the first two.

MODS can we just have one standard Batman 3 rumor thread.

Frankly until Nolan gets back and even decides what his next film will be EVERYTHING will be just rumor. Hardly worth noting. Yet in the weeks since TDK was released this is about the 4th or 5th thread with rumors on the next Nolan Batman.

I'm all for people wanting to discuss them. I'd just rather not have a new one every 10-12 days and frankly thats the current track record.
You know, we tried that with the Dark Knight Megathread ... and you know what happened? People bitched and moaned, they said that their own topics were so fundamentally important that they needed to exist outside of the Megathread, and no one paid any attention.

So, no. You rubes have shown that Science Fiction & Fantasy can't have nice things. Enjoy the weekly threads with new tidbits of information that suggest Christopher Nolan may or may not return for another Batman movie (and, of course, "plans are subject to change").
JKTim, l can't live under the thumb of a harsh ruler like you. Please move to Fan Productions or some other forum that I never go to. Thanks.

On-topic, I hope Nolan's next film will not re-imagine more villains that we've seen before. Is Batman's rogues gallery so thin that the movies must endlessly recycle Joker, Riddler, Penguin and Catwoman?

Given my choice, I would have Black Mask as the central villain with Penguin as his arms dealer.

Amen, brother. I'd really like to see a completely original villain. If any franchise could pull that off, this one could.

They could include both original and familar villains. One of the highlights of this new series is seeing how the old villains are re-imagined, or trying to figure out how they'll be done if they haven't shown up yet. I wouldn't want to see these movies do away with that.

Re: Batman 3 rumors

One thing that occurs to me is that Nolan tends to cast his villains quite young. I don't think anyone would have anticipated 20-something actors like Cillian Murphy or Heath Ledger - each of them younger than Bale - as Scarecrow or Joker. Even Liam Neeson was relatively young for the role of Ras, while Aaron Eckhart was younger than Tommy Lee Jones or Billy Dee Williams (though Harvey in the comics is usually a near contemporary of Bruce age-wise). When Empire recently discussed casting prospects for the next Batmovie, they suggested Casey Affleck for The Riddler. Given the acclaim he received for ... Jesse James (an Oscar nod for the latter, IIRC) and Gone, Baby Gone, he might be in with a chance.
