The Fun Bunch.
On the MTV Movie Blog, there’s a debate about who should be the villain in a third Batman film. I think it seems clear that Two-Face would be the star bad guy in the next film, so the question would be who, if anyone, they might want to add to that storyline (and, yes, I think most people would agree that recasting the Joker would be a bad idea, so he’s out).
The Riddler and Catwoman are popular choices with cast members, and comic book writer suggests a double team of Poison Ivy and Catwoman (though his casting suggestions, Angelina Jolie, and of all things, Gwyneth Paltrow, aren’t much to get excited about). The readers in the comments section have lots of good ideas, including Talia, Bane, the Penguin, and the Mad Hatter. One person suggested Paul Dano as the Mad Hatter, and I find that idea kind of interesting (I also likes someone’s suggestion of Helena Bonham Carter as Harley Quinn.
Here’s a partial list of Batman villains–see any good ones?
