Villains We Want to See Should Nolan Continue Batman

Villains we want to see should Nolan continue Batman

Most of us would agree that Christopher Nolan’s interpretation of DC Comics’ Batman is truly a masterpiece. Now that the third and final chapter in Nolan’s Batman trilogy is finished, we can’t help but feel sad. We want the ride to continue and let’s hope Nolan changes his mind sometime in the future. But for now, here are a couple of villains we think would fit quite well into Nolan’s Batman universe:

1.  The Riddler/Edward Nigma (Nashton)

We’ve seen The Riddler in Batman Forever back in 1995 portrayed by actor/comedian Jim Carrey. It’s nothing new but imagine how cool it would be if Nolan remade a darker, more cruel version of The Riddler. Maybe Batman fails to solve a number of his riddles and the ramifications are extremely drastic thus adding more pressure, tension and a sense of urgency to solve all the riddles that come next.

Also, with The Riddler as the primary antagonist, it’ll give Nolan the opportunity to showcase Batman’s intellect and detective skills because let’s face it; while Nolan’s interpretation of Batman was great, it didn’t really stress on Batman’s intelligence and analytical thinking (which is a big part of who Batman truly is).

2.  The Ventriloquist/Arnold Wesker

There’s something about puppets that I find really creepy and I think Nolan’s interpretation of The Ventriloquist would fit perfectly with the world that he has created. The Ventriloquist (Arnold Wesker) suffers from dissociative identity disorder so he speaks through a puppet named Scarface, believing that Scarface is a separate person altogether. Wesker himself is a timid person but through Scarface’s influence (his own influence), he is able to commit crimes that Wesker himself could never have done alone. Now just imagine how this can be incorporated to Nolan’s darker, grittier version of Batman. It’ll be creepy (in a good way), scary, and downright epic.
