The title has been announced. What do you think?

http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/109547-third-batman-to-be-titled-the-dark-knight-rises

Also it will not be in 3D (great!) and The Riddler won't be a villain in it (bad!) despite clearly leading in the villain buzz race since TDK came out.

I hope this thread will be as epic as the TDK thread from a couple of years ago.

     Ouch at no Riddler. Maybe they'll have Mr. Freeze.

Nah, Nolan specifically ruled him out a while ago, actually.

     That more or less eliminates all of the good tier-one villains. What about Clayface?

Nolan actually mentioned years ago that he wouldn't be likely to use him in the series (although I don't think he categorically ruled him out).

My thought is that they might go with a more modern villain (or villains) like Hush now but that's just a total guess on my part. There is also buzz about a possible female villain which I think would almost certainly have to be Catwoman or Talia al Ghul.

Hey, I love The Penguin!

Also I can't really see Clayface coming into this series, PiT. I wouldn't have any problem with that personally though.

The Dark Knight Rises? Not a fan of the title.

No Riddler = No good

Don't know about that, but I am very disappointed that the Riddler (my favorite villian) is not the big bad. I will be very disappointed if it turns out that it is the Penguin. If it is the Penguin, I hope they change his nature a bit. The worldly aristocrat should be substituted for the vicious (Mafia, maybe?) crime boss. Isn't Catwoman in this one as well?

Yeah, the title is pretty ''meh''. I bet the WB bigwigs pushed to have The Dark Knight as part of the title again. I think Shadow of the Bat would have been a much cooler title.

One thing I am really disappointed by is the title. Rises? Really? That's so Michael Bay. Shadow of the Bat, Gotham City, Dark Knight Returns, Long Halloween (actually Calendar Man would be a logical choice too)... Any of those would have been better.

Damnit.  The Riddler was supposed to be Eddie Murphy's comeback.

But please no Mr. Freeze.  Batman & Robin killed that character.

It's still rather frustrating when you consider how many people with far better work histories than Jeff have to spend months or years unemployed before they finally get an offer.

Any chance of "Two Face" returning for the third installment? Also, what about Dr. Hugo Strange, Bane, and Ra's al Ghul and the League of Assassins? There's plenty of interesting Batman villians.

Also, in the name of all that is holy, no Mr. Freeze or Penguin. The directors of those respective movies killed those characters for the rest of forever.

NO Riddle?

But I love that poster!

Anyway, after reading other suggestions, these are some good villain ideas:
Clayface
Mr Freeze
Bane
the Penguin
Scarecrow
Catwoman
Two Face (he needs to come back)

and my personal favorite, Hush, though I know that own't happen

Two Face is SO dead, as is Ra's al Ghul.  (He doesn't seem to be immortal in this film trilogy)

Why rule Hush out? I bet Nolan could make Thomas Elliot's story pretty interesting.

Hush is one of my favorite villains, but the story itself required the fifty or sixty years of backstory that had developed by then, what with all the villains and flashbacks, such as references to Harold, and Oracle.

Obviously several things would have to be changed or removed but it wouldn't be impossible to do.

If Nolan changed or removed several things, then I think the story might end up too warped for it to be any good.

Scarecrow

He already played a major role in the first (yet was still kind of one of the weakest parts), and had a short cameo bit in the second (where it was quite obvious that he was arrested), so why? He's obviously out.

Who's really left that isn't ruined or unfeasible besides the Riddler and Catwoman?

I want the Riddler!

Also, it would be inspired casting to have Phillip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin.

Yeah, pretty sure that Catwoman will get a major role. Something tells me that there will be several villains, like last time. I'm personally hoping that Bane gets in it, too.
