Scarecrowscarecrow

Scarecrow first appeared in Batman Begins and was his first appearance in film universe, this was a risk to do because in the reboot we could have just jumped in with a more iconic villain for the non-comic book fans like myself could relate too. Scarecrow isn’t even the lead villain in this film but his scenes come off as the scariest in the superhero genre and…

    Here are my thoughts on the Dceus villains (and their potential problem). Pity none of them are on par with the characters in this article

  2. Heath Leger’s Joker is probably one of my favorite characters in movie history, never mind the Batman universe. Sometimes I watch the dvd, and just watch the Joker scenes.
    That being said, I grew up watching the Adam West tv series, and The Riddler was always my favorite. I got sick of the Joker. But, Frank Gorshin’s Riddler was always so much fun for me.

    Sean votes The Joker, but his runner up isn’t even mentioned – R’as Al Ghul.

    Joker…because he’s the darkest villain Batman has, something only Heath Ledger’s portrayal touched on. The Joker might seem random but he’s not truly chaotic. There is a definite method to his madness, and he never does anything without purpose, which is scary as hell. Even his rather abusive relationship with Harley has a point, and to him it’s to keep his edge, to not let his feelings for her stop him from being the man he has to be.

    Not excusing his abusive behaviour mind you, but this is something they explore in Harley’s one shot comic. He tries to kill her and tells her something along the lines of “Since you came into my life I’ve been reminded of what it’s like to be in a couple, to care for another and have them care about me. I’ve felt changes come over me…and I hate those feelings, they’re upsetting, confusing and distracting.” It shows, in a twisted way that he does have real feelings for her and it scares him.

    Sorry for the long Harley tangent, but it’s what Joker is like, even his actions in a relationship have a deeper meaning. I really recommend reading the No Man’s Land storyline. It shows Joker at his finest, that being evil, manipulative and sadistic.

    Aside from dear old Joker, I would go with Ra’s Al Ghul, pronounced Raysh. The reason for this is
    that in many ways he and Batman have the same goals, a better world. The difference is that while Batman believes in the system still, even while working outside of it, Ra’s doesn’t, and his plans for ‘cleansing’ are often genocidal in nature.

    But he and Batman have massive respect for one another, and even though Ra’s knows who Batman really is, his code of conduct prevents him from sharing that information with the world. He’s also Batman’s father in law, since Bruce and his daughter Talia have had more than their share of flings and even a son together.

    There, geeked out enough hahaha

    And yes, I know my Batman 😛

      Haha!! Love you Kevin, you’re brilliant. That’s a fantastic analysis (could you think about writing a post about your thoughts on the Joker?). Would you want to join in with Opinion Battles at all too?

      • Kevin says:

        I won’t lie to you, I have been thinking of joining the battles myself hahaha.

        And a post on Joker, I think I can make that work 🙂

        • emmakwall says:

          Do it!! It was such a terrific analysis and with the current ‘absence of Joker in Suicide Squad’ situation it would make a really fitting post idea!

          As for Opinion Battles, would be SO COOL if you joined in!

          • Kevin says:

            What’s that about “absence of Joker”?

            • emmakwall says:

              Just everyone saying Jared Leto hardly had any screen time in Suicide Squad, 8 minutes I think he was on screen in total.

            • Kevin says:

              Yeah…I think he’s rather bland as joker, more looks than performance

            • emmakwall says:

              Style over substance 🙂

            • Kevin says:

              And not much style either. I mean I’ve seen Romero, Nicholson, Hamil and Ledger play wildly different interpretations of the character and Leto is beneath all of them. Even Romero’s super campy Joker has more pathos than Leto’s.

              For all his supposed method acting and insane behaviour on set, Leto is simply a humdrum Joker, just a thug with makeup and an extremely fake laugh.

              The laugh might be the worst part. The Joker’s cackle is iconic and shows the character’s dark humour and insanity at the same time.
              Leto’s is more of a pained moan than a laugh.

              Have a listen at the laugh portrayed by past Jokers and you’ll see what I mean. There’s humour and malice. In Leto’s there is nothing, no soul.

              It’s a worthless portrayal and has lowered my opinion of Jared Leto to subterranean levels.

              Joker Rant number 2 finished 😛

    I kind of have to go with the Riddler because of how interesting you know the show or movie is going to be while he’s there. Unless Jim Carey’s involved.

  6. beetleypete says:

    I went with Catwoman. Let’s face it, she’s sexy!
    If it was about the original TV series, I would have gone with the wonderful Frank Gorshin, as The Riddler.
    As ever, Pete. XXX

    It has to be the Joker.

Any thoughts?
