    Default Just realized - Scarecrows first live action appearance was in Nolans films

    In Nolan's trilogy, Scarecrow was the only villian that had his first appearance in film. I thought after begins we would of saw more villians that haven't been in live action before. Opinions?

    I prefer to think of Dark Knight Rises as Bane's first appearance in a film. That oafish, uninspired brute holding Poison Ivy's purse in Batman & Robin should not be considered Bane. LOL, I'm serious, I feel that strongly about it. That godawful, utterly horrid portrayal was a slap in the face to every fan of the character & it should be stricken from the record. One of many reasons why George Clooney still gives refunds to disenchanted angry Bat-fans.

    Nah, that was 'Ben'...



    We also had Zsasz.

    We'll leave aside Falcone, Maroni et al as they're 'mob'-based.

    That's strange because I felt once we found out it was Talia behind everything in TDKR, Bane became that exact same character again

    Verrrrrrrrrrry funny Point conceded. But at least he was a skilled fighter & tactical thinker this time. That made it easier to overlook him being on Talia's leash. I mean, we all know he had the major hots for her in the comic, but he sure as hell never acted like she had him so p-whipped.

    Zsasz in "Batman Begins" seemed to be Zsasz in name only. There was no character development at all, no explanation of why he had tic marks on his body, and the marks weren't even noticeable except in the brief shot where he was emerging from his cell when all the Arkham prisoners were freed. Seemed kind of pointless to include him without at least a little bit more.

    Not really it was kinda a lil Easter egg for comic readers

    The Batman films aren't as bad as the Superman films. Overall, we've gotten a nice sample of Batman's rogues gallery. Some even not that well known. So always remember, it could be worse.

    Oh, my God. Bane was not a henchman, nor was he on her leash. He was the public side to their organisation. The man who had to take down Batman. The man who had to raid the stocks. The physical brute to conquer anyone in their way. Without him, the mission would have failed. Then you have Tahlia, the "spy", who worked her way into Bruce Wayne's life. Without her, they couldn't have got the reactor. Both played important roles.
