Daniel day lewis


Let's face it, Heath Ledger did a great job as Joker, but he wasn't the "Joker" Joker, he was more like "Nolan type of characters" Joker.
Daniel Day-Lewis is brilliant actor and he has the physical appearance of the Joker, and that's why he is my first choice for this part.

Nolan's Joker is a fascinating character, but Gotham deserves the Joker as it was originaly designed.

Edward Nygma/The Riddler

David Hyde Pierce has the looks of somone with superior intellect, he has the ability to play psychopathic roles and above all he can be funny and serious simultaneously, and that's why he is my choice for this part.

After Jim Carrey, you just can't go wrong...
Harvey Dent/Two-Face

Michael Fassbender is one of the most underrated actors.
He is briliant and he has the ability to play this kind of characters.
Above all, I allways imagined Harvey Dent like Michel, and that's why he is my choice for this part.

the count's rating:
Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel/Harley Quinn

Ah, Helena. She is my favourite actress.
She has a physical appearance of Harley Quinn, and she is my only choice for this part. I just love her.
the count's rating:
Pamela Lillian Isley/Poison Ivy

Let's face it, she is a brilliant actress and she is most definitely hot enough for this part. After seeing her in a role of Galadriel it hit me: "she can be mysterious, she has the looks, she can be seductive, she is just perfect for Ivy" And of course, after Uma Thurman, you just can't go wrong...
Average listal rating (1216 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 0
Roman Sionis/Black Mask

Actor that will play Roman Sionis must be a bit older because Roman was friend of Thomas Wayne, he must seem welthy, he must look smart and he must pull off the part of an underground crime lord.

Kevin Spacey is a brilliant actor, one of my very favorites, and I think that he is most suitable for this part.
the count's rating:
Dr. Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow

No particular reason. I just always imagined Dr. Crane as Joaquin...
Selina Kyle/Catwoman

Michelle Pfeiffer did a brilliant job. She set up almost unreachable standard. If anyone has the ability to break that standard, it's Kate Beckinsale...
Ra's al Ghul

I always thought that he could do a lot better than Liam Neeson. He certainly looks more like Ra's...
Victor Zsasz

He always seemed to me like the most logical choice for Zsasz.
the count's rating:
Average listal rating (969 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 0
Hugo Strange

What to say? Hugo for Hugo... :D
the count's rating:
Average listal rating (516 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 0

I have trust in Nolan's judgment...
You can't say that Hardy is not good...
the count's rating:
Average listal rating (3239 ratings) 8.7 IMDB Rating 0
Jason Todd/Red Hood

I think that he is suitable to play Robin, and since Jason Todd (the second robin) is actually Red Hood he must also be suiatble for that part...
the count's rating:
Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot/Penguin

Tim Burton created a brilliant character, but also disgusting one. I couldn't stand DeVito's penguin.
I think that Philip could be the penguin as it sholuld be...
Average listal rating (412 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0
Arthur Brown/Cluemaster

Cluemaster was not yet put on a screen, so there is no one to compare my choice with...
I guess physical resemblance should be enough...
Floyd Lawton/Deadshot

He did the Bullseye pretty well, I would like to see him as Deadshot next...
Garfield Lynns/Firefly

Not a well known villain. I'm not even sure why i picked Snipes. He just poped on my mind... :D
Average listal rating (728 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 0
Julian Gregory Day/Calendar Man

I allways pictured Calendar Man to look a bit like dr. Evil... :D :p
Average listal rating (589 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0
Dr. Thomas Elliot/Hush

Knowing that he was Bruce Wayne's childhood friend, he would have to be same age as Bruce himself. Eric Bana is the most logical choice to many people, so I have also accepted him as such... :D
Basil Karlo/Clayface

It's quite simple actually....
He is big enough and he has a bit messed up face... :D
Waylon Jones/Killer Croc

After seeing him in underworld, I thought: "he is made for Killer Croc".
Average listal rating (398 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0
Jervis Tetch/Mad Hatter

If you have to ask why, you must be blind...
Average listal rating (568 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 0
Maxie Zeus

Maxie Zeus is one of the worst batman villains, but Jeff could make him intersesting...
Average listal rating (450 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 0
Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze

Arnold wasn't as bad as people think he was. Main problem in Batman & Robin was scenario. (C'mon, after you look at George Clooney, Uma Thurman, Alicia Silverstone and Jeep Swenson, you realize that Arnold Schwarzenegger was a brightspot of the movie.) He isn't Mr. Freeze as I imagined him to be, but he could pull it off quite nicely.
About Freeze as I see him: Ben Kingsley, Ben Kingsley, Ben Kingsley and only Ben Kingsley...
Average listal rating (867 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 0
Lonnie Machin/Anarky

Yes, I know that Anarky is just a kid, but for my movie, I would change this character a bit.
Hugh Laurie is perfect for "Anarky as he should be by my opinion".
Thomas Blake/Catman

Who could compete with Selina Kyle if not Jeremy... :D
Curt Calhoun/Prometheus

My only choice for this part...
Average listal rating (536 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0
Simon Hurt

Fantastic actor...
Arnold Wesker/Ventriloquist

Buscemi wanted to be a ventriloquist as a child, and I would be more than delighted to make his dream come true.
He most certainly has the face for it...
the count's rating:
Solomon Grundy

If you have to ask, look at the picture again...
Average listal rating (34 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 0
Mark Desmond/Blockbuster

He pulled off Hulk, he can pull of Blockbuster...
Warren White/Great White Shark

Let's see. Both of them are badass, and physical resemblance is nonnegligible...
Alberto Falcone

Joseph is fine actor, but this choice is based simply on physical resemblance...
the count's rating:
Talia al Ghul

If you have to ask why, don't expect the answer.
I think it's obvious enough. She is my only choice...
the count's rating:
Average listal rating (1166 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 0
Carmine Falcone

Ian McKellen as Falcone? Why not?
Tom Wilkinson did a great job, but I think that Ian is a bit more suitable...

I'm going to list some of the main batman villains and people who should play them by my opinion.... :)

nice job

Andy Serkis as the Mad Hatter. YES!
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Dec 21 11:00
I never though there was a " Catman ". It made my day. xD
Great list, by the way. :)
All your choices look like the original. ^^

You get my vote for Helena alone! Great descriptions and I think any director planning to make more Batman installments should refer to this list!

I have doubts on Mr. Freeze though...
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Dec 22 15:48
I pictured Heather Graham as Harley Quinn. Blonde, bubbly, able to play completely over the edge nuts. She scared the daylights out of me in Austin Powers 2.
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Dec 22 20:06
Great ideas!
Posted: 3 years, 10 months ago at Jan 21 20:53
I think Michael Fassbender has smile like Joker :)

Total AGREEMENT on Bane. hardy is brilliant, have you seen Bronson?
But I totally disagree with the whole Joker/Scarcrow thing. I thought Ledger and Murphy were perfect for the roles.
I could agree on the fact that Ledger was more Nolan less comic book villain.
But they were still great.
But if I did choose a Joker, I thought I may have put RDJ in the role or he may be good as 2 face, IDK... What do you think?

Wow. Terrible job here. Why would you choose Hugo Weaving as Hugo Strange or Colin Farrell as Deadshot? Why pick actors who have ALREADY played other superheroes or supervillians? That's just stupid. Isnt it bad enough that people like Ryan Reynolds have already been Deadpool, Green Lantern, and now Batman? There are others actors out there, who havent been in a comicbook film, who would probably do a better job than most of these you have picked. Lou Ferrigno was the Hulk. Leave it at that.

Also, your choice for Joker is horrible. Crispin Glover would be much better. Actually, anyone would be better than Daniel Day Lewis.
