    We can have our Jokers, Penguins, and Scarecrows in Batman films nowadays. Christopher Nolan does some interesting designs for his villains, and i'd like your take on thisquestion. It may only apply ti die-hard Batman fans, but which obsure/D-Z level villains would you like to have seen in a Nolan film?

    I'd like mob boss Black Mask, gangster Great white Shark, and the disturbed Ventriloquist and Scarface.

    You?

    Unfortunately, nowadays Killer Croc has become quite obscure (despite his presence in the Arkham games). But my choice for a realistic Nolan film would have to be Hush or Red Hood. The most fascinating villians to me, they need far more exposure then they are receiving.

    "Obscure" really isn't the right word, it's more like "underused", but I say Hugo Strange, a great villain who was never used that much or well in the comics and cartoons [except for The Batman, where he was truly one Magnficient son of a bitch], only having some well-deserved spotlight in Arkham City.

    He would be a brillant villain for a Batman movie.

    Yeah, bring on Hugo Strange. With the way things are unfolding (Batman being a fugitive from the law), he could come into play as a psychologist whom the GCPD hire to profile Batman as a means of hunting him down, but possessing a homicidal obsession for the Dark Knight and wishing to eliminate him himself. Put simply, adapt the Prey arc for the big screen.

    Other villains I'd like to see would be Black Mask, Killer Croc and Hush; Ventriloquist might be a bit tricky but could be absolutely terrifying if done right.

    I'm a fan of the weird, so give me Manbat. Too bad, it'll never happen while Nolan''s making the movies.

    Mr. Freeze. Technology makes the character, so it could be realistic.

    I really would love to see mr. Freeze done right in a movie

    But black mask, red hood, hush, would all be pretty awesome and workable in the nolanverse
    Heck I wouldn't mind the riddler even (arkham city style or what not)

    Always thought DKR might have Penguin in it as a mob boss to takes power since Joker had the previous ones killed. Don't have him like the old Adam West Penguin but more like a buisiness man. Maybe just have him chubby with an long nose. No webbed hands like the Burton version. He'd be a side character, not the main villian or he is financing the main villian through orgainized crime ties.

    Poison Ivy!

    Because Batman should take on a female antagonist after fighting 4 (soon to be 5) male ones. (Ra's Al Ghul, Scarecrow, Joker, Two-Face)

    D.A.V.E I'd love to see them try and do this seriously. Also he had a really neat design.

    Not that my suggestions are really "obscure", but I'd love to see Nolan's take on Freeze, Penguin, Black Mask and Killer Croc.

    Ventriloquist!
    That could be some straight up nightmare fuel if done correctly and effectively!
    ...Either that or would be the cheesiest Nolan Batman film :p 

    I wanted to name Captain Cold, kinda like if Nolan did do Mr. Freeze, he'd sort of be a copycat villain, but I think he's a Flash villain...

    So, Riddler. Not obscure in the slightest, but I've always found him to be pretty cool.

    Is Freeze even that obscure? Anyway, I'd like Hush or Prometheus.
