I have now seen The Dark Knight twice in theaters and I was very impressed. I don't usually see movies more than once on the big screen, so this Batman Begins sequel deserves some serious props.
At the end of each showing the same question jumped to mind: Who will the "caped crusader" battle next? I noticed that almost all the chatter from other audience members seemed to be running along the same lines. The Dark Knight just screams to be outdone by an equally awesome sequel. That means a new villain (despite the fact that we all wish the Joker could come back for a second run).
Personally, I can't remember all that many villains that haven't already been done by Hollywood in the past. The Penguin, the Riddler, Cat Woman, Scarecrow, Two Face, and Mr. Freeze have all had their night on the big screen and that pretty much sums up the most notable Batman villains too.
Even so, this article by OMG Lists has a pretty nice set of villains and judges their likelihood of appearing in the new, more realistic series of Batman movies. My money is on the scary guy named Zsasz, pictured above. He was apparently glimpsed in Batman Begins when the criminally insane escaped from Arkham. He might not be a major character though...he'd make a better secondary villain like The Mob was in the latest picture.
Either that or they'll make someone completely new up...they did it with the ninjas, right?
