The Batman – Part II is a movie that is being compared to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. In the first movie, Robert Pattinson plays a younger version of Batman who has already faced some of Batman’s famous enemies. At the end of the first movie, the Riddler and the Penguin were the remaining villains, and the Joker was introduced as a potential villain for the next movie.
However, The Batman 2 should avoid a trend from Nolan’s movies, which is having more than one villain. Each movie in Nolan’s trilogy had multiple villains, and it would be better for The Batman 2 to focus on just one. The Batman has already set up the Joker as a future enemy, so it would make sense for him to be the main villain in the sequel.
The success of Nolan’s movie, The Dark Knight, has created high expectations for The Batman 2. Ledger’s performance as the Joker was highly praised, and people hope that The Batman 2 can be as good as The Dark Knight. The introduction of the Joker in The Batman 2 adds even more pressure for the movie to be a success.
There is a possibility that Clayface could also be a villain in The Batman 2 or in a future Batman movie by Reeves. However, having both the Joker and Clayface as villains would repeat Nolan’s formula and specifically The Dark Knight’s formula of having the Joker and another villain.
In summary, The Batman – Part II is being compared to Nolan’s Batman movies, and it should avoid having multiple villains. The success of The Dark Knight has raised expectations for The Batman 2, but it doesn’t have to live up to that level to be a success. The Joker is a potential main villain for the sequel, but the inclusion of Clayface would repeat Nolan’s formula. The Riddler could also make a return in future movies, similar to Scarecrow in the Dark Knight trilogy.
