And the Villains for Nolan’s Batman 3 Are … Joker, Catwoman, AND Two-Face?

273 Comments

If this rumor of Catwoman, Joker, AND Two-Face being the villains in the third “Batman Begins” movie is true, then it appears Hollywood is slow to learn. No, let me rephrase that: Hollywood is so thick that they can’t look back a few years to see what they did wrong, because they’re going to repeat it all over again with the third installment. Of course, this is keeping in mind the “if this is true” part, because word from Cinema Blend is that a reliable scooper has told them that Nolan is seriously considering not one, not two, but three villains for the third installment in his Batman reboot. The optimist in me would like to believe that Christopher Nolan is no Hollywood hack, so he wouldn’t go such a silly route, but the pessimist in me says: “Yeah, right, didn’t you think that way about Sam Raimi, too, and how did THAT turn out with ‘Spider-Man 3′?”

More:

One of our most reliable, long time scoopers just sent us the following tidbit: “Word is that Heath Ledger could be coming back in the next sequel which will have Two Face as the main villain.”

Even more exciting than the idea that we may get the Joker in more than one movie is the identity of another villain who may be in Batman 3. According to our source, “it could also include a certain female feline as well.”

I think everyone knew and expected that Two-Face would be the villain for part three, with his character being set up as a Batman loyalist/ally in “The Dark Knight”, but keeping the Joker around, and then ADDING Catwoman to Part 3 is just repeating the same mistakes all directors do with their superhero franchises.

Of course, this is all rumor, so all this huffing and puffing may be an exercise in pointlessness…

    wel i saw the dark knight and it was incredible…how ever joker comes back?…no one can pull off the joker like heath and unfortunetly well we all know….o no 3 villians..it’s a movie….a movie people who cares…if anything i wanna see who plays the riddler next

      I agree no one can pull off the Joker persona as well as Heath Ledger did so the Joker should not make a come back in the next film. I say we bring in a villian we have not seen yet like Clayface or Killercroc.

      dude nolan has said, “that it doesn’t matter about the performance. it’s about the character.” at least from what i read it was his saying, and if robin comes along somewhere; which he should in the last movie. then do it.

      the dark knight returns main ideas:

      the riddler will be a rat in the investigation of batman and a mobster, hush will affect the wayne side, batman is an outlaw; for that means all copycats must me arrested, and the joker will play a huge part in it.

      the dark knight’s endgame plot/villian/ and add on

      how can batman/bruce wayne find their true place in gotham city?

      villian will be the mr. freeze, but forget the originality of him. think of him as a mobster that looses his wife, and begins to find out all of the secrets that everyone kept from him. meaning that he looses his warmth in heart and mind.

      now this is where robin comes in, alright? it will be somewhat similar way of the comics and animated tv show with the showings of robin. the major part is… is that in the end of the film, robin will walk away from batman. i would like for gotham to know the bat’s true identity.

      yeah things never happened, but what’s wrong with adding new things to the comic book movies. eventually spider-man will show his identity, but thats if the franchise survives; which it won’t.

    If it is Catwoman I am really curious to see who plays the role because I dont think anyone can top Michell Pfeiffer. Same with Jim Carey. But I doubt thwir bringing Catwoman in.

    Christina Ricci-Catwoman
    Kristen Bell or Amy Smart-harley quin
    Amber Heard or Emma Stone-poison Ivy

      Yes, bring in Harley Quinn. So many people don’t even know about her. Also Two-face “died” at the end of Dark Knight, so how can he be back?

      • Aghgirl2

        Actually, two-face didn’t die, but in fact lived and ran off. In the comics, he runs away. Plus I don’t care for him to come back, either. Only one person can get enough of Two-Face.

    Remember dark knight returns? Could be worked in rather seamlessly here with joker, two-face, and superman chasing the fugitive batman.

    Do they dare?
    Doubt it, but it would be great.
