I have been a die hard Batman fanatic since the age of four. And there is a lot to that I wish to see on TV and movie screens long before I'm buried six feet under. Here's some ideas:

Batman Beyond

Cliche, I know, but can you blame me? It was my childhood TV cartoon. What better can it be to see Bruce Wayne passing on the Batsuit to Terry McGinnis? It also includes many other familiar characters, such as Barbara Gordon, Dick Grayson, and popular villains such as The Joker and Bane.

Gotham TV Series

Now everyone I know is excited for this CW show to come out, especially me. Here's how I picture it happening.

  • Season One would be dedicated to Batman in mid-career, with some flashbacks including Joe Chill's assassinating of Dr. Thomas Wayne and his wife in front of their young son Bruce and maybe introduction flashbacks to some infamous villains.
  • For Season Two, I can see them planning Batman's descent into Arkham Asylum and fighting not only his greatest foes, but also declining sanity. I know that I mentioned that the Batman: Arkham Asylum video games would be great for movies, but I came to conclude that it would be best as a TV series. The only thing I would fear, however, is that if they take this route, it could be too similar to Season Two of American Horror Story.

The biggest thing I want out of this is that they should bring in characters and villains that yet have on cinema and TV screens. Some villains I'd like to see are Killer Croc (if done with the right CGI tech, he'd be pun intended), Dr. Hugo Strange (I can see him in the Gotham series. I think that having the villain knowing Batman's identity can keep people on their feet if the script is written correctly), Doomsday, Deathstroke (live action, please!), Black Mask, Solomon Grundy (c'mon, it's the world's first zombie villain! THAT'S AWESOME!), Deadshot, and the Mad Hatter. Other good appearances could be Vicki Vale, Jack Ryder/The Creeper, and Azrael.

Who do you want to see in the Batman universe on TV and movies?
