Two-face in Batman Forever was ridiculous. Especially his death scene. As I recall, he tries to flip his coin, and then Batman suddenly tosses a handful of coins at the same time. This confuses Two-face so much that he loses his balance and falls down a cliff. (Did I imagine this? It sounds too silly to be real...I haven't seen the movie since it first hit theaters.)

Does Batman really keep a purse full of change with him at all times? Whatever for? The subway? Vending machines?

Fishy: Nope. That is what happened.

Batman Forever is also guilty of producing the worst Batman themed game ever too. It was like Superman 64 but for the PSX.

The real shame is that Billy Dee Williams should have been Two Face (as he did play Harvey Dent in the first film). At least he set a a pay or play contract, so they had to ay him before they could use Tommy lee Jones.

You don't understand why somebody would turn down a part in Batman Forever?  confused

If he was doing pay or play with his contract though, I find it confusing that he should be allowed to refuse a role and get paid for it....

I do not think he refused to play the role rather Schumacher wanted Tommy Lee Jones for the role so they had to pay Billy Dee off so he could play the role.

I believe wu's correct. Also, Robin Williams was in talks to be the Joker in Batman, the Riddler in Batman Forever, the Joker in The Dark Knight, and rumored for the Riddler in the third Batman Begins movie. I'm not sure if I'd rather him or Johnny Depp.

If they did pick Depp for the Riddler role (assuming here they'll make another installment), I don't feel he could pull it all off. Sure, some aspects could be... but others... I'm not so sure about. Robin Williams would be a good choice for the roll, or just get Jim Carrey to do it again.

I can't believe people liked Jim Carrey as The Riddler. Honestly, the 60's TV series actor was less over the top.

(I've never read a Batman comic, so I'm not sure if Carrey's depiction was accurate to the source material or not, but it doesn't really matter. I'd rather have something ignore the comics and be awesome than something that follows the comics and sucks.)

I hate the over-the-top comedy of Robin Williams too, but at least he is a good dramatic actor, and has starred as a cool murderer guy in a Christopher Nolan film before. I say go for Robin Williams. Or Matthew Lesko.

Its because Williams was contracted with the Burton-Keaton Batman movies really. When They left, Billy Dee left. And in all honesty, I think his interpretation as Two-Face would have been too classy for the shit that came out of Batman Forever.

And while I worship the ground Jim Carrey walks on, I agree that his role was ridiculous and over-the-top. What sucked balls about the Joel Schumahcacafuckface movies is that they tried to put in all these famous actors...if you can call Chris O'Donnell an actor. I kind of liked the idea of Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl, but now my vote goes to A) Rachel McAdams or B) Emily Browning.

My guess on who the next baddie is gonna be in the next Batman (if they make one) will probably be Catwoman.

I could see Depp or Williams being the riddler... actually suggesting Williams could work very well I think... he has a creepy Mork & Mindy vibe about him all the time...  The nice family friendly guy that tells dirty jokes behind your back and is really hairy.

I'm not sure who Matthew Lesko is.... I'm not good with names, somebody wanna throw out famous movies he's been in for five hundred Alex?

I'm not much of a fan for Jim Carrey (sorry dally), and I thought he was a shitty choice for Riddler in the first place.

I have to totally agree with your comment about fitting as many famous actors into a movie as possible spacedal.  The atmosphere in those movies moved from dark to gay camp, and the plots were shitty... Hell, even the special effects and set designs were shitty.  I don't know how those actors/actresses agents got them into the projects... I can only hope people were fired.

Catwoman is a pretty sweet story thread to go with... and always has been... replacing Michelle Pfeiffer (I'm guessing off the top of my head... she played catwoman, right?) and danny devito as the penguin?  That's a huge jump.... they both did a spectacular job.  I think it's harder to replace them than it was Jack Nicholson..... and I loved Nicholson's performance... although not having seen Dark Knight... it seems the two portrayals are different and valid, possibly Ledger's more so.  That's what you get when you make a good movie as a whole though.

Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moon light?

You know what Dark Knight did that I don't think it gets early enough credit for?  It brought the term "squeeze" back into the mainstream.

I want Nathan Fillion as the Riddler. And Morena Baccarin as Catwoman. And Adam Baldwin as Clayface.

The cast of Firefly have so much recyclability.

While it is true that Batman has quite the rouges gallery, Nolan has stated that he really only wants to use more realsitic villians to fit into the current world that has been created. He has even said he is not sure he if he could make the Penguin fit into the style of the films.

Maybe they might bring in someone like Talia Al Gaul to avenenge her father but still get knocked up with Batman's kid. Harley Quin could work but would probably require too much of the Joker. Really not sure if a character like the Mad Hatter would work well but I was wrong about the Scarecrow.

I think they can many of them can be made fairly realistically.  Harley Quin could certainly fit into the story to take up the reins where the Joker left off.  I agree with Ralph on the replacing the Joker issue, but with a little rewriting Harley Quin could certainly pick up that role if need be.

I don't see how the Penguin couldn't fit... I don't remember him doing anything blatently ridiculous, but as I said earlier, DeVito's portrayal was fantastic.

I'd like to see Poison Ivy personally. She needs to be redeemed after that godawful Batman & Robin. Why am I pushing for the lady villains so much?

Any how I am kind of curious as to how Nolan would incorporate Robin or Batgirl into the series. I mean I'm not gonna lose sleep over there never being a Robin in the franchise but I think it'd be interesting.

And I don't care what anyone says, I want to see Calender Man break Batman's fucking back.  wink

Or the joker could be played by a different actor each time. Building up to the final revelation that each joker recruits a replacement to be the new joker, in much the same way as the dread pirate Roberts.

I think I'd rather not see a Robin in another Batman movie to be perfectly honest.

Batman works better as a lone wolf... his character is solitary.

Couldn't somebody strap rockets to a penguin in real life, to be honest?

Also... it seems more frightenly crazy than anything..... which seems to be working well with the new line of batman movies.

Just saw The Dark Knight, great movie, I couldn't get enough of that Joker. I wonder if they'll bring the Joker back in any sequels if any are made...if so too bad we won't see Ledger doing the role...It would be hard to match what he did with it. I think if there is any award for best villian this year I think the Joker would fit that spot nicely.

Eww, as much as I love Johnny Depp (because he's a brilliant actor, the cute/hot/sex god factor is just a bonus) I would hate to see him with orange hair. Doesn't suit him.

However if anyone watched The Batman, that Riddler would be perfect for him or I don't know Marilyn Manson.

Actually I beleive the Riddler looked like that for a time after the Hush story line of the comics since he basically pissed off most of the villians (also went abit crazy after being dumped into the lazurus pit). He got minor plastic surgury and got the tatoos.

Shortly after this he became a psudo good guy, well he hires out his deducing skils at any rate.

It's a much more Nolanesque interpretation of the Riddler as opposed to the campier models of the original series and Jim Carrey.

In that vein, I challenge the assumption that Jim Carrey cannot do a Nolan Riddler. Sure, I think that Depp or Williams would be better, but Carrey's forays into drama lately have been terrific (other than The Number 23 *shudders*). I'm sure that Carrey could pull off the emotions of a Nolan Riddler, something that he didn't really get to do in the campier version of the character a decade ago.

Also, the Joker Riddler screams Johnny Depp.
