A Variety Of Villains Could Be Appearing In ‘Batman’

Ben Affleck’s Batman solo project is starting to take shape with him directing, writing and starring but many fans are wondering what famous Batman villains could be making an appearance in the film?

Rumors had been circulating the the movie could be taking on a “Under the Red Hood” vibe, having Jason Todd return as a vengeful villain but sources from Birth.Death.Movies explain that this will be an “ultimate” Batman story that will feature “many, if not most, members of Batman’s rogue’s gallery.”

While nothing has been confirmed, it would appear that this story would use more unknown characters and allow for some very creative casting choices which could expand the DCEU. This doesn’t exclude some famous villains though such as, The Joker, The Riddler or The Penguin.

Kevin Tsujihara previously confirmed Affleck’s involvement in the Solo Batman project and how this is a critical and important step for the DCEU. “It set up a great foundation for our DC slate, which includes at least 10 movies through 2020.” This lead him to say, “I’m also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie.”

Which villains would you like to see in this solo Batman project? Comment below and join in on the conversation!

    The Batman movie could feature any member of his Rogues Gallery, huh? In other news, “Water: Wet.”

    • Fidel A. Finem

      Click.

    • Ruben C Barron

      The story says many, if not most of the members of the Rogues Gallery could appear. That’s different that “any member”.

      • Archfiend_Baramos

        But it’s Devin Faraci, so odds are it will only feature one at this rate. I’ve never seen someone be so wrong so consistently.

      • Joseph Chaisson

        Sounds like an Arkham game.

        • ScottyB608

          That’s what I thought too. maybe they all escape and he has to round them up.

          • Joseph Chaisson

            I was hoping they would do a Batman movie like that.

  • H.I McDunnough

    I watched the animated Under the Red Hood again last week. It’s pretty damn amazing for an animated film. I don’t know about live action, but it could work. Black Mask, Joker, Riddler, and Amazo….not bad for a start.

    • henryducard

      The comic has even more characters than the toon. It would be rad to see that mixed with the lonely place of dying where Tim drake comes in.

  • H.I McDunnough

    And haters can hate all they want, but I think Affleck is the best Batman to date. The guy is talented and he LOVES and UNDERSTANDS the character. He didn’t have to go out and buy a Batman comic to “prepare” for this role. The man has been reading them his entire life religiously. This is the same guy and gave us “The Town”. How could this movie fail?……unless WB tries to interfere.

    THE REAL BANE PLS
    MR FREEZE
    CLAYFACE
    PROMETHEUS MAYBE ??

    • Vegas82

      Clayface is my number 1 request to see on screen. We have the technology, just do it.

      • Irishhguy

        I want a good Riddler film, show Batman’s detective side that or Arkham Asylum to show off the Rogues Gallery.

  • Archfiend_Baramos

    Please for the love of God, quit just mindlessly posting what Devin Faraci says. He’s consistently shown that he just makes stuff up and then attributes it to a source. Here I thought this would be the one site that WOULDN’T just report what he says.

  • Fenix

    Please just adapt Court of Owls.

    The problem with jumping in with Red Hood is that BvS didn’t do enough to establish the Robin loss in BvS (which is a shame as it would have done a lot to flesh that characterization of Bruce Wayne out). There wasn’t a single line of dialogue that so much as mentions him. In order to do Red Hood, they would have to lay groundwork for the story. Maybe they could begin to talk about it in Justice League, but there’s a lot of ground they have to cover in that movie as it is.

    On the other hand, I can’t imagine that they would use a ton of villains and go down the path of some kind of Arkham game, either. Using too many villains will inevitably sacrifice storytelling. Red Hood would have been a nice story to tell if they’d already begun to tell it.

      There you go again, with your nonsense.

      • breakerbaker

        Okay, sweetheart. You believe what you want to believe. If you want, you can even make believe that responding derisively to every comment that says something you don’t agree with makes you look some other way than desperate. It’s never been true, but it’s worth a shot. It’s a lot easier than making believe you’re a grownup.

    • Joseph

      I disagree completely with all of this. I really don’t think the Red Hood story needs two or three movies in order to “lay the groundwork” first. It sounds like you’ve been spoiled by the Marvel formula of telling a single story over the course of 6 years. I’d rather have ONE powerful movie tell ONE powerful story at one time. The Red Hood movie should be the first and only movie that really delves into what happened to Robin and what Joker did to him that night. It could be done through flashbacks throughout the film, or as an opening sequence in the movie. Either way, it should all be told in the SAME movie. The Robin costume in BvS was MORE than enough to tease the story. I bet you were also one of those people who thought Doomsday was “too soon” because there was not enough “build up” for him. Why does everything need to be built up for several movies? That’s not GOOD storytelling.
      Lastly, a Batman movie with TONS of villains like an Arkham game sounds Amazing in my opinion. We’ve already had 7 Batman movies focused on one or two villains at a time. It’d be nice to see Batman take on a team up of his Rogues Gallery for once.

      • breakerbaker

        You don’t need six movies to tell the story but you do need more than a suit as a piece of furniture to fill the audience in on what’s going on. One of the things people who dig BvS like to say is that people need the story spoon fed to them. That’s not the case, for the most part, but people do require that a story is more than obliquely suggested. It doesn’t have anything to do with Marvel; although if you wanted to make a comparison, the obvious one is to Winter Soldier. You can’t tell that story without first establishing for the audience who Bucky is. Now, Robin is well known enough by the audience that you wouldn’t necessarily have needed to go too in depth in BvS to set the stage, certainly not as in depth as the first Captain America, but the subject needed to be addressed. Not just to set up the Red Hood, but to better flesh out the character of Batman and the scope of his loss. The audience in BvS would be completely forgiven if they had no idea it was a Robin suit at all and if they figured his parents deaths and the Metropolis battle was all it took to turn him into a psychopath. Unpacking the Robin Death in the Family story, at least at the edges, would have created a much more meaningful emotional arc for Bruce and it would have left the door open to seamlessly transition to Red Hood.

    Wow, so we are just doubling down on Farce’s garbage, huh?
