Batman 3 - Villain?

Postby Shuggy » Thu Sep 16, 2010 10:03 am

I'll put this in here now, until we thrash out whether or not we're going to have a seperate 'Comics' forum...

So, Batman 3; it seems at the moment - even in the press - that it's a given that the next Batman villain will be The Riddler, but I haven't seen or heard of official confirmation of this anywhere. Has anyone?

You see, traditionally I find The Riddler a bit redundant - he's just another version of the Joker, but with a slightly different gimmick. He'd need to be done radically differently for me - especially given that he's following The Joker in 'The Dark Knight'.

Yeah, I agree that it seems a bit similar to the Joker. Perhaps they plan to make him more cerebral and less brutal compared to the Joker (i.e. more mind games rather than sick violent stunts)?

I suppose they could; I'm looking at this from the POV as a Batman comics fan too, and I've seen just about every possible incarnation of the Joker. There's no way they could do a Riddler who wasn't very similar to a version of the Joker - the only difference between him and the Riddler really is that Edward is less psychotic and is compelled to leave cheesy little clues to his crimes; but even the Joker has adopted that modus operandi in the past.

A lot of Internet Commentators are suggesting a 'Zodiac' type of Riddler, similar to what you suggest - dangerous and cerebral without the costumed criminal theatrics. Could be interesting.
