Could Batman's Next Villain Be An Eco-Terrorist?
With the next Batman movie set to hit theaters this summer, fans are already speculating what’s next for the Dark Knight and if a third movie might be on the horizon. Apparently, Christian Bale is interested in creating a trilogy and would consider signing on for a third flick. “Let’s wait and see,” Bale said. “I would, knowing the ‘Dark Knight’ story, like very much to complete a trilogy. And I think that knowing the story of ‘The Dark Knight,’ it leaves you anticipating something that really can get very, very interesting for a third. Now, the question would be: Is Chris [Nolan] going to be doing it? Because to me I find it tricky to imagine working on it without it being a collaboration with Chris.”
Those are promising words — and with Bale looking ahead — fans are now debating what villain or villains might be featured next. One of the potential baddies could be none other than Poison Ivy — an eco-terrorist obsessed with plants, botany, and environmentalism. From Wikipedia,
“She uses toxins from plants and her own bloodstream for her criminal activities, which are usually aimed at protecting the natural environment. She creates love potions that ensnare Batman, Superman, and other strong-willed individuals.”
Sounds like someone I dated in High School. God, her breath…
But seriously, we’ve seen Ivy before in the critically-acclaimed Batman and Robin played by Uma Thurman. Could an updated, Gore-educated, Whole Foods-shopping, Living With Ed-watching, Prius-driving Ivy be far away? No idea. We’re thinking it will never happen and join the hordes of others that believe Two-Face will take the bad guy position for the next film.
But here’s to being proven wrong. Bring on the plants.
