It's been rumoured that Ben Affleck is set to star in and direct 'The Batman,' a solo film with a November 2018 release date.
I'm going to talk about 5 major villains that I think should appear in the film, as well as a few minor villains.
5. The Riddler and Two-Face
As much as I love the Joker, he is kind of getting old. It's like Spider-Man and the Green Goblin. We know what the Joker is all about, let's change it up a bit. I loved Batman Forever. I think Jim Carrey did an amazing job as The Riddler, and Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face. I would absolutely love to see those two together on screen again and to be very honest, I wouldn't mind seeing Jim Carrey reprise his role. He's still a nut.
4. Red Hood
Red Hood recently became one of my favourite Batman villains. Ever since I watched the animated film and read the book, this has definitely been a story and character I want to see in a Batman film. To have this story for the first Batman film would only work if he's already Red Hood before the film. If he's not, then I'd go with A Death in the Family and then Under the Red Hood for the sequel, if there is a sequel.
All of my friends hated Bane in The Dark Knight Rises but, I loved him. I think Tom Hardy did an amazing job and if they use Bane as the villain, I'd love to see Tom Hardy reprise his role as well. If there's one villain besides The Riddler, Two-Face and Joker that I'd love to see again, it's Bane. Catwoman sucked both times and Danny Devito as The Penguin was just weird... So.. Don't use Catwoman or The Penguin again!
2. Ra's al Ghul
Two words... Or names: Liam Neeson.. "My name is merely Ducard." bullshit it is... Ra's! Warner Bros. get him back!!
1. Joker and Harley Quinn
Yeah, yeah. I know. I'll quote myself:
As much as I love the Joker, he is kind of getting old. It's like Spider-Man and the Green Goblin. We know what the Joker is all about, let's change it up a bit.
So, you're all probably wondering why I have him at number one, right? I didn't say this list was in a certain order, but, Joker is definitely number 1 no matter what. In the end, the Joker is the best villain, hands down. I'd still enjoy the film and DC & Warner Bros. know that they'll make a crap load if the Joker is in it. I just have one request.. Please, for the love of God and everything holy, get a new actor to play the Joker. I wanted Troy Baker.. But, we don't always get what we want or else I'd be a kabillionaire with peace, happiness, two virgins and 70 sluts! Yes, I just quoted Zachariah from Supernatural...
- Joker and Red Hood for an Under the Red Hood story.
Anyway, that's my Top 5. Which villains would you like to see the most in 'The Batman' and did any make my list? Comment below!
