Batman Villains,

Everyone has their two cents about who should play the potential villains in the next Batman movie. So here’s my opinion on the matter…and yes I know this blog “insists upon itself”, it’s just me having some fun.


Poison Ivy

Who? Rebecca Romijn

Why? Having played Mystique in the X-Men movies she’s no stranger to comic book adaptations. She also suits the role looks wise.

The Riddler

Who? Johnny Depp

Why? Because of his amazing talents as a character actor and ability to throw himself head long into a role. There’s not many actors who are able to capture the essence of a character in quite the same way.


Who? Philip Seymour Hoffman

Why? As well as fitting the role physically he’s a very talented actor.

Mister Freeze

Who? Patrick Stewart

Why? He was fantastic in X-Men and is dignified and intelligent enough to play the complicated character.


Who? Rosario Dawson or Devon Aoki

Why? Both very talented strong women. Rosario looks closer to the original character though.




Who? I still can’t decide.

Why? I think Hugo Weaving or Kevin Spacey might be good but look nothing like the character.


About Jane Ward

I’m finally getting around to updating this section. I’m a recent Journalism graduate, and love flexing my writing muscles by updating this blog. I’ve had a fair bit of work published in a number of publications including student magazines and also in the national press. This blog isn’t the most serious one in the world as you may have noticed, it’s mostly for fun but I do try and post as much serious work as I can. More recently I’ve been involved in music journalism as it’s always been a passion of mine. I’m always open to submissions so if you have a demo or anything you’d like reviewed or previewed I’ll gladly post something. Hope you enjoy the blog

    maybe Glen Jacobs, Nathan Jones, or Vinnie Jones to play as Bane all 3 are big guys and are all good guys to play the part

    Dalip Singh (The Geat Khali) is mine

  3. Justine says:

    I heard that for Catwoman they considered Angelina Jolie (oh god NO!) and for Poison Ivy, Nicole Kidman, but for Poison Ivy Rebecca Romjin Stamos is a much better choice. And a friend of mine said Milla Jovovich.

  4. Cory says:

    Bane- The Rock
    Riddler – Michael C. Hall

  5. Gil says:

    Wow, I’m shocked at your great selection of possible actors. It’s dead on! Especially Phillip as the Penguin and J Depp as riddler. This would make a great movie!

  6. Me says:

    Giovanni Ribisi would be great as the riddler too. I think he could bring out the OCD in the character really well.

  7. Dude says:

    I can’t get around watching remakes of all the original movies… for example heath ledger was amazing, but jack nicholson was freaking amazing as well! i can not see anyone else playing riddler but jim carrey. Yes, johnny d. would do a great job, but it will be a totally different story once again. Like they ruined/destroyed/murdered completely, the character of “two-faced-Harvey” (tommy lee jones did a great job btw!)… And there will be no Poison Ivy, nor Mr Freeze nor Penguin (why? because new batman movies trying to be as plausible as possible) Oh yeah, Kim Bessanger was the best Cat Woman! even tho i would’t mind seeing Rosario hottie Dawson! Bane can’t be played by anyone famous, because its a character wearing a mask… unless they will change 60 years of batman once again and remove it… Hollywood is going down the drain, so for the past 5 years, they were just speed-manufacturing CGI flicks and remakes… you wait and will see (omg, i wanted to joke and say thundercats, but just incase wanted to look it up… and yeah 2012… you gotta be joking me!) everyone watch originals before watching remakes…

  8. Dude says:

    oops, i meant Michelle Pfeiffer as best cat woman… Kim B was best Bruce W’s babe… – seriously, who’s idea was to cast Maggie Gyllenhaal…. lol

  9. Void says:

    Vin Diesel as Bane, all day.

  10. strange says:

    i like the idea of robin williams as the riddler
