The Batman 2: 7 villains we want to see in a sequel – and the actors who should play them

Warning: Batman spoilers follow. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, click now.

Now that Batman 2 has been identified, I thought I would apply the next rule about who can spawn in Gotham to take on Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader.

Matt Reeves and Paul Dano helped rethink the original movie Riddler for the chilling effect, but Batman’s Rogue’s gallery already shows who the iconic villain is. That’s why there are so many villains to choose from, old and new.

In preparation for Batman’s sequel, he opened a comic book and reviewed Batvillan’s criminal record to see who was best suited to Matt Reeves’s dark, rainy Gotham vision. All bases are covered, from the most dramatic depictions of the classic Batman villain to their live-action debut. I also suggested some who should play.

Here are seven villains to consider (and should) for Batman 2.

Hash is a relatively new Batman villain featured in the 2002 movie Batman: Hush by Jeff Loeb and Tim Sale.

Born in Thomas Elliott, Hash was a childhood friend of Bruce Wayne and organized the deaths of his parents in the hope of gaining inheritance. Inspired by his greed and hatred for Wayne, Elliott adopted his nickname “Hash” and tried to destroy Batman with the help of other villains.

Conceptually, Hash is perfect for the tougher Batman villains in the sequel. It’s basically a darker and twisted version of Bruce Wayne, and has also appeared in Wayne’s famous cartoon series.

Batman has already hinted at multiple hashes, which are essential for a sequel. Journalist Edward Elliott was murdered after revealing the secrets of Thomas and Martha Wayne’s family and later not receiving “money of silence.” In search of revenge on Bruce for the death of his father, Thomas would be the perfect way to introduce Hash to the sequel.

Matt Reeves also says he’s enthusiastic A thrilling movie He said he was interested in making a version of the character. He eased expectations and said they were still in the planning stages, but “he’s a character I love and I really want to do, and maybe we’ll get a chance.” Said.

From a cast point of view, I can’t think of anything better than this. Nicholas Hoult.. Former X-Men players may have the opportunity to show a worse side than what we are accustomed to. This is also a good way to bring about real-world drama. Holt will be part of a list of two candidates who will play Batman with Robert Pattinson. It almost writes itself.

Court of Owls

The Court of Owls may be hiding in a remote location in Gotham. First introduced in Scott Snyder’s 2011 run, Shadow Party is the secret ruler of the city, who has held great and powerful strings for centuries.

This group is traditionally portrayed as an elite of owl masks who are uncomfortable with Batman’s growing influence on the city. Adopting the use of Claw, an almost immortal assassin, the court tears Batman and tries to take the city to his feet.

Illuminati-style groups can work well, especially given that Batman is involved in a plot in the heart of Gotham.

Batman actor Robert Pattinson is also in favor of the Court of Owls sequel. He told Vanity Fair, “The Court of Owls is the best … [the Waynes] It would be really difficult for Bruce if they disappeared when they smuggled him. Oh, that would be a nightmare. “

Most of the members are unnamed, but Batman can invent the original persona or transform into a person like Uria Boon, one of the original claws used in the Court of Owls. As a leader Bill camp Also Stephen root -Character actors who have no notable “face” and can blend in with the shadows can receive the big screen praise they deserve. Billy Magnussen (007 / No Time to Die) also looks good and has a unique physique that plays Talon.

Dismantling

Thanks to Tom Hardy’s return as a masked villain in The Dark Knight Rises, this corrosive power has gained an absolutely iconic position. But Bain stems from a reimagination a little closer to the origin of his comic book.

Bain can unleash his strength while Riddler challenges the spirit of Robert Pattinson’s Cape Crusades.Love someone David Bautista He can also show a sensitive side, as evidenced by his small role in Blade Runner 2049. He could be the perfect foil for Batman in the next movie.

Batman may have laid the foundation for Bain. Some fans believe that the green liquid Batman used in the movie was from Venom and also used the stimulant Bain.

Poison ivy

Vanessa Kirby Zoe Kravitz was a member of Catwoman before finishing work, but I think it’s a good fit for Poison Ivy. In a city devastated by post-Batman floods and perhaps a massive panic, there is certainly room for a supervillain to dominate the factory.

Crown players can help redefine the villain a bit “there”, as Paul Dano did for Riddler. To that end, Batman can once again seek clues from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sail’s groundbreaking cartoon series, The Long Halloween. There, Ivy worked for the mob to seduce Bruce Wayne, brainwash him and destroy his reputation.

Ivy’s more cartoonish power may be a difficult sale to Gotham’s more grounded world, but workarounds (and botanist-worthy poisons) could work in the sequel.

Alberto Falcone

Father’s sin? No, I’m not talking about Thomas Wayne this time. Carmine Falcone may have bitten a bullet with Batman, but Alberto, the son of a mob boss, can cause havoc at Matt Reeves’ Bat Bath.

The character may not be as famous as the other members of the Bat Outlaw Gallery, and it may work in his favor. In the Long Halloween comic series, Alberto plays an important role as an assassin named “Holiday” who kills major targets on dates such as Halloween, New Year, and Valentine’s Day.

When you reach the sequel to Batman, another murder mystery may seem a bit emerged, but while the character deals with the main theme caused by the long series of shadows that the family’s legacy can leave behind. It provides another way to the underworld. ..

In terms of talent, we can’t see the past Cody Smith-McPhee (The power of dogs). Oscar candidates already have a unique look and a perfect blend of sweetness and stealth horror, making the villain very deadly.

Mr. Freeze

Freeze has become a major entertainment figure, thanks to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s very hilarious performances at Batman and Robin in 1997. However, Batman fans are looking for tonal adaptations that are closer to the appearance of the villain in the episode. Classic Batman: Animated series “Heart of Ice”.

In this obvious introduction, Mr. Freeze is reconstructed as a tragic villain who only cares about protecting his frozen wife, Nora. We participated in the DC villain Pantheon as Shazam’s Sivana and we are happy Strong brand Swing with a seesaw as a plump batman.

Matt Reeves is also a fan of this idea, telling Collider, “I think there’s a very powerful, very cool, well-founded version of this story.”

Thanks to users with the nicknames “Drops” and “Drophead”, Gossam’s drug addiction is already part of the Batman series.

The scarecrow was able to go one step further with the horror of his own brand and intoxicate the masses of America’s wettest “town” with horror toxins.

Sure, he might just have been involved * check the notes * 17 17 Cillian Murphy’s Dr. Jonathan Crane played that role in Batman Begins a few years ago (we’re old), but I think we’re about to take a new look at the classic villains. increase.You can do much worse than someone else Walton GoginIn his role on television shows like Justified, he often shows that mania and coolers can be skillfully combined and can be calculated coolly as needed.

The villains who are back: penguins, riddlers, jokers

What about penguins, riddlers and jokers? One (or all) needs to return as an environmental character in future episodes to create a more detailed world. One could be used to defeat another criminal, as Matt Reeves hinted at in an interview with Joker’s originally planned director at The Batman.

Meanwhile, penguins will appear in the next HBO Max spin-off. Mid-sized criminals need space to make a comfortable transition between the world of television and cinema. But who knows which villain will join him when he returns?

The Batman 2: 7 villains we want to see in a sequel – and the actors who should play them

Warning: Spoilers for The Batman follow. If you haven’t seen the movie, click away now!
The Batman 2 has been confirmed – so we thought we’d run the rule over who could be showing up next in Gotham to face off against Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader.
Batman’s rogues’ gallery is already a who’s who of iconic villains, while Matt Reeves and Paul Dano helped reinvent the Riddler to chilling effect in the original movie. As such, there’s plenty of baddies – new and old – to choose from.
In preparation for the Batman sequel, we cracked open the comic book case files and studied each Bat-Villain’s rap sheets to see who would be the best fit in director Matt Reeves’ vision of a grim, rainsoaked Gotham. From more dramatic portrayals of classic Batman villains to live-action debuts, all bases are covered. We’ve even thrown in a few suggestions as to who should play them. 
Here are the seven villains who could (and should) be in consideration for The Batman 2.
Hush

(Image credit: DC/Searchlight Pictures)
Hush is a relatively new Batman villain, having been introduced in Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s “Batman: Hush” in 2002.
Born Thomas Elliot, Hush was a childhood friend of Bruce Wayne’s who orchestrated his parents’ death in the hopes of gaining their inheritance. Fueled by greed and a hatred for Wayne, Elliot adopted the moniker ‘Hush’ and attempted to ruin Batman with the help of his fellow supervillains.
As a concept, Hush is perfect for a more grounded Batman villain in the sequel. He is essentially a darker, more warped version of Bruce Wayne – and even took on Wayne’s appearance in his famous comic book run.
Crucially for any hopes of a sequel appearance, there have already been multiple Hush allusions in The Batman. A journalist – Edward Elliot – uncovered Thomas and Martha Wayne’s family secrets and was subsequently killed after not taking ‘hush money.’ Thomas seeking revenge over Bruce for his father’s death would be the perfect way to introduce Hush in a sequel.
Director Matt Reeves is also keen, telling Twitter Movies that he’s interested in doing a version of the character. He did temper expectations, saying they’re still in the planning stages, but said, “that’s a character that I love, that I would love to see done, and maybe we’ll get the opportunity to do it.”
In terms of actors, we can’t think of many better-suited than Nicholas Hoult. The one-time X-Men actor could have the opportunity to show off a more vicious side than we’re perhaps used to seeing. It’s also a neat way of bringing in some real-world drama: Hoult was reportedly part of a two-man shortlist to play Batman alongside Robert Pattinson. It almost writes itself.

The Court of Owls

(Image credit: DC/HBO)
The Court of Owls could be lurking just out of sight in Gotham. The shadowy group – first introduced in Scott Snyder’s run from 2011 – are the secret rulers of the city, having pulled the strings of the great and powerful for centuries.
The group are traditionally depicted as owl mask-wearing elites who have grown perturbed by the increasing influence of Batman on their city. Adopting the use of Talons – near-immortal assassins – the Court attempts to break Batman and bring the city under its heel.
An Illuminati-style group could work well, especially given how much of The Batman was so concerned with a conspiracy at the heart of Gotham.
Batman actor Robert Pattinson is also in favor of the Court of Owls swooping into a sequel. He told Vanity Fair, “Court of Owls is the best one… If [the Waynes] disappear when they’re secretly running it, that would really, really be a very difficult thing for Bruce to handle. Oh, it’d be a nightmare.”
While many of its members are nameless, The Batman could invent an original character or turn to someone like Uriah Boone, one of the first Talons used by the Court of Owls. As a leader, someone like Bill Camp or Stephen Root – character actors who aren’t notable ‘faces’ and can blend in to the shadows – could be given their due on the big screen. Billy Magnussen (No Time to Die) also has a great look and the required physicality to play a prominent Talon.
Who are the Court of Owls?
Bane

(Image credit: DC/Netflix)
The back-breaking powerhouse has certainly reached iconic status thanks to Tom Hardy’s turn as the masked villain in The Dark Knight Rises. But Bane is due a reinvention that’s a little closer to his comic book origins.
Where Riddler taxed the mind of Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader, Bane can bring the brawn. Someone like Dave Bautista – who can also showcase a sensitive side, as evidenced by his bit-part in Blade Runner 2049 – could be the perfect foil for Batman in an upcoming movie.
The Batman may have also laid the groundwork for Bane, with some fans believing that the green liquid Batman used during the movie to be that of Venom, the strength-enhancing drug also used by Bane.
Poison Ivy

(Image credit: DC/Netflix)
Vanessa Kirby was reportedly in the frame for Catwoman before Zoe Kravitz snared the gig, but we think she’d be a better fit for Poison Ivy. There’s certainly space for a plant-controlling supervillain in a city ravaged by flooding and likely mass panic in the wake of The Batman ending.
The Crown actor could help redefine a slightly more ‘out there’ villain in the same way Paul Dano did for the Riddler. For that, The Batman could once again look to seminal Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale comic series The Long Halloween for tips. There, Ivy worked for the mob to seduce and brainwash Bruce Wayne into destroying his reputation.
Ivy’s more cartoonish powers might be a tough sell for the more grounded world of Gotham, though there are certainly workarounds – and a botanist’s shelf worth of poisons – that could factor into a sequel.
Alberto Falcone

The sins of the father? No, we’re not talking about Thomas Wayne this time. Carmine Falcone may have bitten the bullet in The Batman, but the mob boss’ son, Alberto, could still be kicking around in Matt Reeves’ Bat-verse.
The character may not be as well known as other members of Bats’ rogues’ gallery – and that could work in its favor. In comic series The Long Halloween, Alberto has a prominent role to play as an assassin named ‘Holiday’ – who killed prominent targets on dates such as Halloween, New Year’s Eve, and Valentine’s Day.
Another murder mystery could feel a little played out by the time we get to The Batman’s sequel, though the character offers another way into the underworld as well as dealing with the key theme brought up by the series of the long shadow a family’s legacy can cast.
In terms of talent, we can’t look beyond Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Power of the Dog). The Academy Award nominee already has the distinctive look, plus a perfect blend of softness and hidden angst that makes the villain so deadly.
Mr. Freeze

(Image credit: Warner Bros/20th Century Studios)
Mr. Freeze has largely been a figure of fun thanks to the wildly comical performance of Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1997’s Batman and Robin. Batman diehards, though, have been crying out for an adaptation of the villain closer in tone to his appearance in classic Batman: The Animated Series episode “Heart of Ice.”
In that seminal entry, Mr. Freeze is reframed as a tragic villain who only cares about preserving his frozen wife, Nora. Despite already joining DC’s pantheon of villains as Sivana in Shazam, we’d love Mark Strong to take a swing at a meaty Batman role.
Matt Reeves is also a fan of the idea, telling Collider: “I think there’s actually a grounded version of that story, which could be really powerful and could be really great.”
Scarecrow

Gotham’s dependence on drugs is already baked into The Batman series thanks to the introduction of ‘drops’ and its users, nicknamed ‘Dropheads.’
Scarecrow could take that one further with his own brand of terror, intoxicating the population of American’s rainiest ‘burg with his fear toxin. 
Sure, he may have been involved only *checks notes* 17 years ago in Batman Begins (we’re old) as Cillian Murphy took on the role of Dr. Jonathan Crane, but we think we’re about due for a new take on a classic villain. You could do a lot worse than someone like Walton Goggins, who has so often shown through his roles on the likes of Justified that he can skilfully mix being maniacal with a more cold, calculating composure when required.
Returning villains: Penguin, Riddler, and Joker

(Image credit: Warner Bros.)
And what of Penguin, Riddler, and Joker? To help create a more fleshed-out world, one (or all) should return as peripherary characters in future instalments. Perhaps one can be used to help bring down another criminal, as Matt Reeves hinted was the original plan for Joker in The Batman in our interview with the director.
Penguin, meanwhile, is set to appear in his own HBO Max spin-off next. There should be scope for the mid-level criminal to flit between the worlds of television and movies at ease. But who knows which villains will be joining him by the time he returns?
