The PERFECT Villain Duo for a Batman Reboot!!!

#1 Posted by TheCannon (17924 posts) - - Show Bio

We all have our personal ideas for the Batman reboot. I thought about it, and I came up with the PERFECT villain duo for the reboot (or one of it's sequels):

Killer Croc

AND

Man-Bat

!!!

I sit back and wait for your praise.

@TheCannon:

cool

hush and harley could be cool

hmmm not really, lol sorry

I wouldn't put 2 brutes in the same movie.

@andrewtheking: I see Hush as more his own villain.

@Loki9876: What's wrong with these two? They're perfect.

@TheCannon:

i have a new one i could show you

Interesting idea. Though I'm not sure the two characters could carry the film. Plus, it'd involve a lot of CGI characters and that doesn't always turn out so well...

@TheCannon: Like I said I wouldn't put two animalistic brutes in the same movie, man-bat is smart in his human form but not in his beastform, non-comicbook readers will also think they'll ripped Dr. connors origins off.

That's why we have Riddler in another movie.

You do have a point about CGI.

They're going to think DC is ripping off Marvel no matter what they do in any movie.

The ridder/pengiun using croc as muscle or talia using the man bat to make her own army of league of assassin man bats I'd be happy with but to much CGI and fighting and not enought detective work doesn't float my boat

Those guys can be at a Batmanuel movie.

But not at a Batman movie.

@TheCannon: hmm,I want to see both on the screen,but not as duo...my choices for the next movie

#14 Posted by TheCannon (17924 posts) - - Show Bio

@matchesmalone21: Your duos are cool, though I'd rather see Black Mask in some kind of gang was against another villain.

#15 Posted by Lvenger (18411 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheCannon: Nah 2 brutes doesn't cut it for me. I'd want to see either

  • The Riddler
  • Black Mask
  • Deadshot
  • Hush

in the next Batman film.

Yeah, biggest issue I would have would be the CGI.

Not to mention, Croc and Man-bat aren't terribly interesting characters. They would make the story all about action, instead of drama. Not a great movie idea.

#17 Posted by TheCannon (17924 posts) - - Show Bio

@Lvenger: All good, but I'm not saying they have to be in the next Batman film, just a team-up down the road in a film

#18 Posted by Lvenger (18411 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheCannon: Meh I doubt they could carry a team up unless you link Croc to Langstrom's Man Bat serum somehow.

#19 Posted by Chaos Prime (10842 posts) - - Show Bio

Perfect Duo? then it has to be Hush & Prometheus imo :)

#20 Posted by matchesmalone21 (8420 posts) - - Show Bio

@matchesmalone21: Yeah,maybe against these two below,to gain control over the city

#21 Posted by TheCannon (17924 posts) - - Show Bio

@Lvenger: They could do that.

@Chaos Prime: That's a perfect. Man-Bat & Killer Croc is THE perfect.

#22 Posted by StrangeMan (407 posts) - - Show Bio

It could work actually, i think that the characters could be written in a very relatable way, something like both of them being confused and angry because of the animals inside of them taking control of their bodies, so they put all the blame in Batman because they're lives are falling apart and they need some one to blame. Or, if they go with Killer Croc being that way all his life, he could manipulate Man-Bat into attacking Batman, that could also show a more intelligent side of Killer Croc and show people that he isn't just some brute. But personally, i want Hugo Strange or Hush, somebody that challenges both Bruce Wayne AND Batman.

#23 Posted by TheCannon (17924 posts) - - Show Bio

@StrangeMan: Thank you. I think that would be absolutely perfect.

And I am working on my own ideas for a Batman reboot trilogy. The first film has Hugo (and Riddler), and Hush appears down the line!

#24 Posted by MrShway88 (655 posts) - - Show Bio

Why does it have to be a duo. How about just one villain. I would prefer Hush or a proper Scarecrow. Croc would be cool but he would need a brain to match his brawn for a duo. Man-bat I can honestly see in his own movie without Batman.

#25 Posted by JakeN7 (10934 posts) - - Show Bio

I would like them to try and redeem The Governator's pathetic excuse for a Victor Fries. Hell, Nolan was able to redeem Bane from the same "film" (notice the quotations.) Curse you Schumaker!

Anyhoo...I think Mister Freeze and Hush would be pretty cool. Not working together mind you, just in the same movie. Kind of like Ra's Al Ghul and Scarecrow. Or Joker, Two-Face and Scarecrow. Or Bane, Catwoman, Talia Al Ghul and....Scarecrow. I'm beginning to see a trend....

I don't know how I'd feel about a team up, but I could get behind them being in the same movie. A nice match of brute force vs. Batman's wit. They'd probably have to just be pawns to a bigger mastermind, though.

#27 Posted by Saucedo17 (135 posts) - - Show Bio

How about Riddler and a Two-Face duo all joking aside I would actually like to see Hush, Penguin, or Owl Man (Lincoln Marrch) I know an Owl Man would be unlikely but hay I guy can dream, reason being is because not only are they Batman villains there also Bruce Wayne villains too in a since.

#28 Posted by Eternal19 (2076 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Mr.Freeze deserves to be redeemed after that abomination that was Batman and Robin. Mr.Freeze would be the perfect villian because he has a realistic motivation, People like villians who they can somewhat understand why they're doing the things that they do.

#29 Edited by PaperDemon (601 posts) - - Show Bio

The Riddler (voice actor from arkham city)

and

ZSASZ!!!!!!!(voice actor from arkham asylum)

(my fav villains)

#30 Posted by PaperDemon (601 posts) - - Show Bio

@The_jackolantern: Well for batman to use his mind... How about the riddler if you want that route. I chose zsasz and riddler because riddler was my favorite as a little kid, now older my favorite is zsasz

#31 Posted by mrdecepticonleader (17602 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheCannon: No they would not work in the same movie.At all.And certainly not as a duo.

Would love to see Mr Freeze in a new movie.

And Black Mask (not really in the same movie though)

(Alternate Universe, Batman has been Batman for 4 years now, he has been fighting gangs mostly black mask and red hood)Black Mask and Red Hood (Joker) I could see it as a three part movie, Black Mask and Red Hood would have a gang war, Batman would have to stop it and eventually the two gangs will fight in a abandon warehouse where Black Mask's gets away from the scene and the police come shooting the Red Hood in his knee as Batman scares him enough to jump off, the movie would end with Red Hood becoming Joker and the next movie would start off with Batman fighting some of Black Mask Villains the night after and Joker uses a super glue to stick a black mask on his face to represent him Joker then blows up the building and leaves to fight the Batman the two fight Batman takes down the Joker easily and sends him to Arkham while Black Mask comes about making a plan with two-face(who is a victim of the red hood), Riddler and Bane(without venom) to take revenge on Batman and Joker. The Next movie would have Batman defeating the foes and Batman giving up the mantle and soon Owlman arrives and Batman must be Batman again to fight him,

#34 Posted by Jakesully1981 (281 posts) - - Show Bio

How about Mad Hatter and RedHood?

What are your favorite comic stories with them and which should be used for the movie?

#39 Posted by NewComicGuy (129 posts) - - Show Bio

For Red Hood to truly work, the audience would have to be invested in who he is and why. I don't think you could get that from just launching him into a movie.

#40 Posted by TheAcidSkull (17332 posts) - - Show Bio

I really hope croc gets better. I love that guy.

#41 Posted by CubicTurtle (24 posts) - - Show Bio

Villains I'd like to see in a new Batman movie would be Scarecrow (not like in Batman Begins. I'd love to see him confront Batman with the death of his parents, like in Arkham Asylum), Freeze, Mad Hatter... Also, Grundy would be quite interesting. Not really sure how the duo's should be, but if they would be able to do something with those, I'd be happy!

What also would be cool: If they would be able to make The Long Halloween and Dark Victory into a movie.

#42 Posted by sage1000 (67 posts) - - Show Bio

I would prefer either Hush or The Court of Owls to be the villains in the first reboot.

#43 Posted by hulkinglory (12 posts) - - Show Bio

these two would be good but i think there would have to be a higher power at work

Court of The Owls, with Jason Todd being a member
