writers leave out batmans backstory we've seen it all. Who do we want as villan? I'm guessing riddler. He'll be like a hacker too. lol trolling on social media.

The Scarecrow deserves better treatment than the lazy crap Nolan put on screen.

 

I'm sure they'll use some Suicide Squad characters.  If done properly Clayface could be brilliant, but I don't think they'd get close to that character at all.

I'd love to see the Court of Owls brought onto the screen but I doubt they go that way. Can pretty much guarantee the Joker will be involved somehow. 

 

I think Hugo Strange would be great as well.

His portrayal of the Sacrecrow was lazy crap.

 

I know you are an ardent defender of the Nolan films, but that character deserves a better goa round than what was given.

again lazy crap? It's one thing to say you don't like the portrayal. It's another to call it lazy crap. That implies that they threw him in there for the sake of it which is false because he's clearly there in a specific role for that story

Ras al ghul is clearly the central villain of the film

Lazy is signifying of effort which is ridiculous.

Honestly I'd love to see Jason Todd be the villain in the first one. You could involve the other villains in it too. But the court of owls, Rah's Al Ghul's REAL daughter not the crap in the dark knight rises.and above all I want to see a Catwoman done correctly :P

A red hood storyline would be great. There'd be no suspense in the reveal though since we would all know who it is but if the film didn't spend time on building up the reveal and more on the relationship between Batman and the Red Hood that'd be great to see.

The animated Red Hood movie that came out a few years ago was pretty damn good. I can definitely see that storyline translating to the big screen. A film about Batman's biggest failure would be something new for audiences.

Yes, last stand - lazy.  Treated lazily, written lazily and portrayed - lazily.  Sorry, to not love the films you do, but the Scarecrow was awful in the Nolan Batman films - awful.  He was thrown in to fill a gap that didn't need to be filled.  It's a rich super-menacing character that deserves better treatment.

 

That all said, Red Hood would be a great character to run to.

Lol. Just because he didn't fit your vision for the character doesn't mean he was lazy

Seems to be a common theme with you

I don't like it so it's lazy
I don't like it so a bunch of people agree with me and don't like it
I believe this happened so that's what happened

Nolan had a vision for scarecrow in his universe. Just because it wasn't your vision, doesn't make it lazy.

i think they're headed in that direction 

As this 

 

Batman-v-Superman-SDCC-trailer-1-1940x84

 

Jason Todd's burnt Robin Outfit 

 

 

and this 

 

bvs-family-die-143724.jpg

 

 

Are both hints at Jason Todd.   Some people assumed "you let your Family die" was from the Joker, but the Joker wouldn't send a message to him as Bruce Wayne, he'd do it as Batman as the Joker doesn't care. 


That kind of message screams Jason Todd, and both this and his Robin Suit were in the Batman v Superman trailer. 


This plus the news that all these film writers are staying in contact with each other because it's going to be consistent stories within the same universe and continuity is important.  So we'll likely see hints of Jason Todd, and then when the Batman movie "Under the Red Hood" comes out we'll see the bookend of it landing there.   

I do like the way they are going about it IF "Under the Red Hood" is basically gonna be that Batman movie because they'll be setting it up with Easter Eggs here and there till the story happens. 

 

The fact that Geoff Johns is also gonna be dealing with the writing as well as Affleck whom is also Directing I am VERY happy.  I was especially happy to hear that Chris Terrio will be writing not just BatmanvSuperman but BOTH Justice League movies ^_^ That makes me VERY happy lol
