I voted for Killer Croc. The realistic description of the guy is just too good to pass up. An Arkham inmate with a skin condition that files his teeth and is a goddamn cannibal serial killer.

other than that the Riddler would be pretty cool.

I'd say both in the same movie would be great. And I'm sure they can find a way for both RIddler and Killer Croc to work together.

I think Hugo Strange would be an interesting villain, if done right. He hasn't been seen in the movies yet, and would really give Batman a run for his money, psychologically.Allicrombie
He was a cool villain in Batman Arkham City so it'll be interesting to see what he does in the movies.

I don't even think they have to work together. One could be a villain he catches and puts in Arkham in the beginning (Croc). The other is the main villain that really challenges Batman.

But, Riddler can use Croc to his advantage, you know since Croc hates Batman. Much like Joker using Harvey in TDK,except Harvey was good. It could work.

I voted for Christian Bale because he's the best choice out of the ones listed. However, I think that Christian Bale makes a good Batman, but not the best Bruce Wayne because I always picture Bruce Wayne as a man with more of a Nordic appearance (albeit with dark colored hair); Bale, nor any of the other actors have the look.

I think Christian Bale makes the best bruce wayne Anyway as far as villains go, I would've loved to see the Riddler on a Nolan Film

I would like to see a Hugo Strange somewhere there. Also, maybe a Killer Croc. I would like to see how Nolan would interpret Killer Croc on the big screen without the use of CGI.

I'd like to see hush actually; he's such a great villian but has been very under represented in batman.

I think it's because his character is so dark.

Yeah, they went on location. This time, they filmed in India, so more exotic locations.

Well, true. I guess I was a little surprised to hear the second film was called TDK, a nice change from the usual titles with Batman in them. I guess I wanted something more creative, another name for Batman, perhaps.

Maybe. Though that would not have been creative either and too similar to TDK.

So last week they had some first viewings of DKR and a friend from the film industry was invited to attend with his boss.

I didn't ask him to tell me the whole film but I did ask him to tell me:

1) Does Batman Die

2) Tell me something cool that your weren't expecting in the film

Here were his answers

1) Batman does not die, although Gotham believes he has

2) Heath Ledger makes an appearance as the Joker in the film in the way of they inserted footage that was left on the cutting room floor from the Dark Knight(perhaps purosely for the 3rd installment) into the Dark Knight Rises

OTHER TIDBITS:

His only knock on the film was Anne Hathaway. He felt the whole Catwoman thing just got in the way of a great film and she began to annoy majority of the people watching by the 2nd half of the movie.

Bane, although he felt was great, people should not be anticipating a Heath Ledger performance. I am sure most of us know this ahead of time though.

He mentioned that this is the longest Batman film out of the 3 and it is very well paced

He seemed to be very purturbed about Anne Hatheway which he brought up twice... he said her being in the film brought the film form being better than the Dark Knight to a bit below it. He felt that there was really no need at all for her character as Joseph Gordon Levitt added any need for an extra character in the film. He also said that JGL was fantastic in the film and was a great addition.

And the villain you'd most want to see in a Nolan Batman film is......The Riddler with a whopping 59% of the vote. A new poll is coming soon. Two weeks to go!

How about "The Caped Crusader" or "LOL-Bats" or "B-Man"?

I seriously thought "The Caped Crusader" but it feels a little hokey for this.
