I just want to see my boy The Riddler in another Batman movie. Poison Ivy would be nice as well.

It is amazing that when it comes to Batman, he has a great roster of Villains probably the best in any form of media IMO. But Joker is always the go to guy.

Still love seeing Joker but I'm almost as tired as seeing Joker than I am seeing a Spiderman origin story.

Ben Affleck Has Written His Own Batman Script

For the fans who found Ben Affleck's Dark Knight to be the highlight of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, some good news: not only will he return for the Justice League movies, but there's the possibility of an additional Batman movie based on Affleck's own take on the character.

In a Hollywood Reporter interview with WME-IMG's co-CEOs Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell, Whitesell reveals how many movies Affleck has currently signed up for when it comes to DC's Caped Crusader.

"He's contracted to do at least Justice League One and Two, so at least three times wearing the cape," he says, adding, "there's a script that he's written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that's out there as an option."


This isn't the first time the prospect of an Affleck-originated Batman movie has been raised. During San Diego Comic-Con last year, THR reported that the actor-director was developing a stand-alone Batman project with DC Entertainment chief creative officer Geoff Johns, with Affleck tentatively attached to direct as well as star.

In addition to the movies Whitesell mentioned, Affleck's Batman will also make a cameo appearance in August's Suicide Squad, which includes a number of the hero's comic book villains as lead characters (His rumored presence was confirmed in footage from the movie released during Comic-Con last year).

Riddler was the mastermind of the HUSH plan. Definitely underrated.

Riddler would be THE perfect villain for a more grounded, more realistic Batman story. Hope WB considers using him.

I also wouldn't mind them using Scarecrow. Love how he was used in Arkham Knight, and a version like that on the big screen would just be :eek:kada.

I'll be interested if it's a prequel like Wonder Woman before he became a murderer. If it's just Bat-Punisher then whatever.

If the rumors about his Batman's role in Suicide Squad is true then I would suspect that this movie would be the entire backstory of how he became cold hearted.

The Batman - Red Hood story arc
The Batman 2 - The Riddler / HUSH story arc
The Batman 3 - The Court of Owls story arc

I hope we eventually see fantasy villains like Clayface and Grundy. The former, in particular, would make for an excellent tragic villain and a spectacular visual.

Clayface, Riddler and Scarecrow would be neat, I like those choices. Joker is overused and at this point we'll just keep getting annoying "this is my vision of the joker" constantly tossed on screen. This new one is a wigger, next one will prolly end up being some kinda pedophile clown with a tattoo on his forehead done in kid writing that says "Mol3st3r". The 3's would be little kid backwards E's.

I am so on board for this, it isn't even funny.

First of all, Ben Affleck was the best part of that Batman V Superman movie (a film that I could say a lot of bad things about, and Affleck isn't one of them) and he's proven himself to be an excellent director with films like The Town and Argo.

I hope so, because I just don't care about a Batman who doesn't have that stupid code. That's what makes him Batman.
