The Batman is 1 of my favorite DC movies ever made. I love what Matt Reeves is doing with the universe. But ever since it came out back in March, I’ve been thinking about who the villain might be in the sequel. I hope it’s gonna be Mr. Freeze because he’s 1 of my favorite Batman villains. Ever since Paul Dini and Bruce Timm changed his origin in TAS, making him a far more interesting enemy, I’ve always loved the character.
The coolest thing about Mr. Freeze is the fact that he isn’t really evil or crazy like Batman’s other villains. He’s more of an anti-hero because he just wants to save his wife from dying. Would he kill innocents if he has to? Yes. But only for a greater purpose. Freeze is a villain I feel the audience would really sympathize with, once they see his origin story with Ferris Boyle.
I also feel that they shouldn’t make him realistic. Yes, The Batman Universe is grounded and gritty, but it’s not too realistic. I still think they can bring a comic-accurate Mr. Freeze to the big screen. Just imagine if they adapt that episode from TAS. Also, the beautiful cinematography having a snowy-winter setting mixed in with gothicism would be awesome!
Also, I feel the title of the sequel should be The Batman: Heart of Ice! But who else do you guys think could be a villain in the sequel? And what other ideas in general do you think will be great for future projects? This discussion will literally be about everything related to the film (also including insider information, set photos) and, of course, a review of the film when it eventually comes out!
Honestly should be either Hush or the Court Of Owls.
This franchise could finally tell Batman stories that involve his detective skills to solve a mystery with each villain in the series becoming more dangerous in their influence or connection to Bruce Wayne.
Plus there isn’t a reason you can’t incorporate Batman’s other rogues as supporting characters. I really do like people thoughts on Mr. Freeze but why waste him in one movie when we can see him return in those HBO Max spin-offs.
I try to remember at one point Hush was hella interesting and skilled enough to outsmart Bruce on several occasions.
The problem became diminishing returns, Hush was overshadowed by Batman other villains that make him irreverent as just another crazy in Gotham.
