Kevin Spacey stepped into the shoes of Mr Underwood with ease. He brought in a perfect mixture of Style, Class and mystery.
The Joker was broken with the death of his pregnant wife, poverty and his failure as a stand-up comedian (irony I say). Batman realises the pain of losing and thats what truly holds him back from ending this social scum we all have come to "love" named The Joker!
He is a symbol of hope, but also that of a lawless individual. Its his billionaire status that drives him to go against the law, but his losses that have made him defend the weak and rid Gotham of evil.
He truly is Hope, wether leading the Justice League, being Bruce Wayne or just the Knight of Gotham.
I would prefer seeing The Penguin go, because of the chaos he inflicts on human life in Gotham and the fact he exploits the desperate for his own need. He even has no feelings for his own henchmen. So yeah, I guess it would be exciting to see Batman drop him off.
Keeping in mind his age & current occupation, I believe he is quite a badass. Plus, he has been Bruce's guardian for the longest time, so yeah, thats quite a validation for him there.
For sure. DC has the big-wigs like Batsy & Sups, but they clearly gave the lead to Marvel by taking too long a time between the Nolan's Batman & the rebooted Batman! They should have played it smarter on the marketing front at least & cashed on the big names.
