Batman has many rogues, many of them have appeared in the dc cinematic universe. From the wicked Joker to the twisted Two-Face and the chilly Mister Freeze, they have appeared in the cinemas all over the world. But there are some great characters that you can't see in movies and today I'm adressing just them. By the way I'm not reviewing characters like Harley Quinn and Deadshot that will soon be a fact in the cinematic universe. OK, so now we're ready to begin:
10. Killer Croc
The big bad croc's back in town. OK, so Killer Croc has been around since 1983 but still hasn't made a movie appearance. You know, he's a guy that has brawn rather than brains and that's good because he should be a heck of a challenge for the Bat. However, he isn't. He is usually the guy that batman beats up easily for a few seconds. It shouldn't be that way y' know. He's one of the strongest Batman villains along with Clayface and Bane. Plus, he has enough potential as a character because he's been used for experiments for a lot of time and has grudge with Bane. If there were enough time to update him as a secondary villain in a film he might become one heck of a villain.
Thomas Elliot A.K.A Hush was one of Bruce's closest friends in Wayne's childhood. He then feels that he is being shadowed by Bruce Wayne and starts to hate him. Now, when he has grown up, he can unleash his vengeance. Through the years Hush has became a fan - favorite for many DC fans, nerds and dweebs. Because of his unpredictable nature and seek for vengeance he can be played a lot with as a main villain. The potential here is granted. Nuff said.
The infamous Batman rogue, Firefly is a hot guy. No, literally, he's boiling hot. Like the temperature... Oh, forget it. Anyways, as it's seen in "The Batman" TV series Firefly is mostly considered a joke. He does everything to prove he's a challenging foe, but people just call him "Bumblebee". In this kind of script he has the potential to be a really fun character (something we don't get very often in Batman movies). I totally see him trying to prove himself worthy while teaming up with Mr. Freeze. Overall, he's a great character that can be tackled a lot more if he appeared in a movie.
Doctor Kirk Langstrom tried a toxin that granted the powers of a bat on himself and that's the result - Man-Bat!! Batman, Batwoman, Batgirl, Batcow... They're all bats, but what makes a difference between them and Man-Bat is that he is a baddie. Interestingly enough he was planned to make an appearance in Batman: Darknight. Since that movie never happened, his big screen never did as well. For now we can only hope for him making a serious appearance in a future Batman movie. We all know that he can't be a main villain - he can't even talk. That means though that he can make a great secondary villain. He doesn't need to talk if his wildness gets him out of the situation fast. Plus, think about the SGI.
6. Mad Hatter
Jervis Tetch is a hat collector, that is ready to hurt, interogate and murder any girl that is called Alice. He also can mind-control people and has a lot of experience with two pistols. Isn't this the perfect role for a silly murderer wearing a top-hat with deadly gadgets?! He also seeks vengeance for all Secret Six members!! Isn't that the perfect time to put him with Deadshot, Bane or Ragdoll. This is surely a character that can be played a lot with in a movie.
Now this is a great character. He is all the brains of the operation now!! As of a character with more brain than brawn he is not at all great in combat and can perfectly fit the role nerd. He knows everything about anything and can be easily be seen hanging out with the Joker giving him ideas about future plans. I personally prefer the big unmobile version of Cluemaster rather than the fit version because the big one gives more variety to the Batman rogue gallery. If he appears in a film I'd love to see him manipulating other baddies to capture the "liars". That's all in store for him.
Clayface is one villain that makes a difference. He makes Batman think outside the box. Cause you can't just go and punch him. Well, you can, but you won't hurt him. Plus if they do him he'll be so SGI I can't even imagine how cool they'll do him. Well, I can, but that's the least they could do with him. Maybe a really tragic storyline would do good as well, but I'm more for SGI on this one.
3. Black Mask
He is so disciplined. Coordinated. Black. Just simply - perfect. Whenever someone from his team "False Facers" does something he doesn't like he just simply kills him... or mocks him a lot but that happens rarer. He could like vanish in the end of the movie and that aspect will make him even more intriguing - the mystery.
2. The Ventriloquist and Scarface
You really didn't see that one coming now did you?! Yup, they deserve to be a villain that appears in a Bat movie. And I mean the Wesker version of the rogue. Because with Arnold the relation "dummy-dummy" feels even more real than it already is in the series. Plus, I love watching how Wesker waddles behind Scarface - a scene I will always remember. They are characters that need more attention in comics as well. I at least haven't seen them for ages. The possibilities with them are endless, and I mean seriously, endless. They are certainly a character I'm looking forward to.
Before I get to number 1., here are some honorable mentions:
And the character that deserves to be in the cinematic universe the most is:
1. Professor Hugo Strange
The most grave mistake that DC ever made was not adding Strange to the Batman movies in the first place. Heck, he is Batman's first ever rogue. He doesn't need superpowers, heck he is a psychologist that can mess with your brain easier than eating a sandwich. Well, except if you're Batman and you are a genius. I would totally love it if they made him the main baddie in a Batman movie. I'd adore it whoever played him (not really).
That's the end of my list and now be sure to vote:
