Batman 3 Babbling
David Goyer, co-writer for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, is suggesting that the villains in the next film might not be household names.
Even though there is no Batman 3 currently in development, that hasn’t stopped speculation and rumors from running rampant about which characters might terrorize Gotham City in a potential third installment.
David Goyer, who co-wrote the script for Batman Begins and developed the story for The Dark Knight with director Christopher Nolan, suggested to SCI FI Wire that the villains in the next film might not be household names. “There’s no reason why we necessarily have to use the same three or four that are still around,” Goyer said. “I mean, Batman’s got a wide variety, [a] rogues’ gallery. Certainly we used two in the first movie that hadn’t been in the films before.”
MTV asked a number of prominent comic book writers and execs who they think should be the villain in Batman 3. For example, DC Comics Executive Editor Dan DiDio suggested Professor Hugo Strange. He added, “Characters like Catwoman, Riddler, and Hugo Strange make sense, because they’re counterpoints to Batman’s psychosis and fears. The Joker creates chaos. Two-Face shows the duality of the Batman-Bruce Wayne relationship, and how Batman’s found peace with that duality. Batman searches for answers, and the Riddler has questions. Batman is driven, and Catwoman is sexual. They play well against each other and challenge aspects of what makes a hero.”
30 Days of Night creator Steve Niles said, “I’d like to see Catwoman over the Penguin. Not as a prostitute, and not as the Tim Burton version — what, cats sniffed her back to life? — but perhaps the Adam Hughes design, with the goggles. That’s very realistic. I can imagine her in street clothes that are designed just right. I also like the idea of them creating villains just for the movies.”
