So, we know the title, and we know the villain won't be The Riddler (damnit!).

We also know that it is based on a comic book and will most likely be in color.

July 20, 2012 is the release date, and I'm counting every damn second.

You can call it any damn thing you please, I just ask two things: DO NOT HAVE A LOVE INTEREST, and do not have Catwoman in it (unless she gets the shit kicked out of her in three seconds flat, that would be awesome). The ultra serious Nolan version of  Batman has already figured out he can't have a girlfriend without endangering her (something the audience figured out many years ago), and would have no problem punching a female villain. So a background plotting type villain like Harley Quinn or Talia, that's fine.

Casting is underway for a new female character, sources say; that could be a villain, a new love interest, or just another character who happens to be a woman. My bet is on number three.

I also don't want Bruce to be all "mopey" because of Rachel's death, but I don't see how it's possible if the story is going to focus on Bruce Wayne as Batman again. If he can carry the burden of Harvey Dent's death, and the burden of the people the Joker killed, he can carry the burden of Rachel's death. That's the Batman I want to see.

As for a villain (since my top picks, Riddler and Mr. Freeze, have already been axed) - I'd like to see The Ventriloquist, though it would be difficult to make him intimidating.

My current top pick would be Bane. The highly intelligent and therefore more dangerous Bane, not the stupid grunting lugnut we saw in Batman and Robin. Maybe both, even.

I don't know what about Catwoman as a costumed hero who is out to get Batman because she thinks he killed Dent?  Now that would be interesting.

I think most people who follow this here know what my choice would be.

Not really, because that would be changing the backstory and motivastions and everything about the character (besides, Talia would have similar motivations because he killed Ras Al Gul) and she wouldn't be a threat to him in a fight.

Well The movie Joker and Ras Al Gul were not exactly the same as their comic book counter parts so I don't see how changing the back story would hurt that much.

Also they could cast an actress who works out in the part. 

I am not saying I want her in it just that there are ways that she could be it there is no reason the movie would be bad just because Catwoman is in it.

I'd like to see Harley Quinn in a live action film, though I can't think of any particular actress who would be the best choice to play her.

Me too. I think she'd be a good choice as she would be trying to free Joker from Arkham and she works mostly in the background, not a hand to hand combater. Maybe we only see the Joker in deep shadow and hear his voice a little.

Yeah, I hope it's Talia.  They should also find a way to "resurrect" Ra's.

Well, there's always the Lazarus Pit, but that doesn't seem right for the movie versions of the character.  Still, that sounds like a fine idea.

Still, rather than one big villain, it could be a bunch of smaller ones (perhaps with the Penguin as a leader).  Not necessarily going for a lot of villains per se (we know how that usually turns out) but to continue the idea that both Batman and Joker changed everything and that classic crime has been replaced by madmen (which was tackled in the Long Halloween mini-series).  Scarecrow can come back in a small role.  You don't have to give them all special attention but just to show that traditional crime is being supplanted by something most destructive and unsettling.

Or maybe bring in Hugo Strange but also give him elements of recent Bat-Villain Dr. Hurt who wants to break down Batman both physically and psychologically.

If they do the Joker again, I think it would work, but it will be a Hell of a job for the actor replacing Ledger.

I like Harley, but I don't think she belongs in the Nolan/Goyer version of Gotham.  She's a little too straightforwardly comedic.

Maybe they're going to do Jervis Tetch. He needs an "Alice."

Eh... too gimmicky a villain in my opinion.

Nobody agrees with my suggestion of Bane?  :(
