Flashbacks would be fine, because he could use some unused footage from Joker, if he wants to. Still a lot of guessing, Ra's Al ghul's supposedly played by this young fella, rumours about his daughter, sound like a lot of bullshit to me and not a lot of info.
Black Mask and Hush are interesting characters, but it would make no sense in the movie imo, unless they retcon the last movies with some stupid flashback like in Spiderman 3. Bruce could've probably had some friends, but why weren't they in the earlier movies? If they go for one of these villains, I hope they come up with a good story(which is way more important to me than any villain)
" He must be a pain in the ass to work with if you're a director. Perhaps there's a reason all of his movies are so good besides his acting. Clearly, if he's willing to do all these rewrites, he cares deeply about his roles and wants to see the film be as good as it can. Do you know if he did any rewrites for fight club? "
Didn't he also produced American History X, because there was a lot of controversy? I could've sworn that I read that somewhere... The movie wouldn't be released if he had not put so much effort into it, not sure though.
I would love to see Dr. Hugo Strange in this, it would be totally awesome, and he should unveil Batman's identity, because Wayne needs a doc after the death of Rachel and he has an appointment with Strange, (this is my perfect-dream-scenario, but any kind of story involving Strange is fine with me)
