I believe that there could be room for a two-face character in this following sequal. There was so much story behind Harvey Dent that was left out when he was portrayed in Forever. I think that with Katie Holmes' character being the assistant to the DA of Gothem, This new movie could really grow with Dent's story. I agree with everyone though, Timberlake is not the one to do it.

Kinda hard to redo the Joker for me, how do u top Jack? As for the rest of the villians, have at it and redo them. BB was a great re-birth for this franchise.

....and why the heck do they feel that Batman needs a love interest? Note to Producers: When adapting the comic book to the big screen, it is important to READ THE SOURCE MATERIAL and stay faithful to it!

1st...Kudos for a successful resurrection of this franchise. 2nd...Let's hope they don't do like the first crew and take Valium when making the sequels. 3rd...It is safe to say that Jack is too aged to play Joker now and even safer to say it will be hard to see anyone else come close to as fine a job as he did. I'd almost say leave him out and go with another villain. A mere implication of a "Joker" does not deadlock you into writing the character in. Finally...4th...I agree with zogtheobvious...the babes never made Batman. They are more of a distraction for this type of movie anyway. No offense ladies...:)

You guys have to realize that the purpose of the love interest, is to help attract some female viewers. The almighty dollar will almost always win over the "Source Material". Anyway, since Begins was somewhat more of a gritty tale, it would be nice to be able to see a more psychotic Joker, again though then you risk getting an R rating, an alienating the younger audience and money. I am also all for bringing some new villans in. I think the visual posibilities of using a character like Clayface would be great, and he is another character much like TwoFace that has that inner struggle at times. just a thought.

I think that Batman Begins is the best Batman movie yet, and I am anxious to see where they will take it from here. I only hope that they stay on course, and shy away from the camp that destroyed the last franchise. Personally, I would love to see Will Ferrell in the role of the Joker. I think he already looks the part (just add sadistic smile), and would be the perfect actor to explore the duality of the character. This role would provide the chance for him to prove his acting ability as he portrays the psychopathic nature of the Joker, while also exercising his comedic genius. Although I liked Nicholson's Joker, I don't he was provided much of an opportunity to delve into this area of charcater development. It's important for the Joker to "kill you with laughter" because after all he is the polar opposite of Batman, which makes him the perfect nemesis of the Batman. The Caped Crusader is the protagonist in the frightening costume, while the Joker is the antagonist in the clown costume; great irony in both of these characters, which I believe tells us a little about ourselves and our "human" conditioning. I would leave Justin Timberlake out of the series. I like the ideas about Harvey Dent, especially since Rachel's boss, whom I assume was the District Attorney in the last movie, was killed by Ra's Al Ghul's thugs. Any ideas about a potential Penguin or Riddler? Other thoughts?

OK, here's a few more of my top casting picks for any upcoming Batman Begins sequels: 1. Joker - Will Ferrell (of course) 2. Penguin - Wayne Knight (Newman from Seinfeld; Bruce "Wayne" and Dark "Knight"... He was destined to play this role) 3. Catwoman - Kate Beckindale (we already know that she looks good in black leather) 4. Riddler - Joaquin Phoenix 5. Two-Face - Liev Schreiber (you need someone a little older in order to play a convincing Havery Dent... after all, the DA of a city like Gotham wouldn't be in his 20's) 6. Mr. Freeze - Kelsey Grammer (Frasier turns evil, icey doctor)

I am looking forward to this movie since the first one blew my socks off! I am very concerned with the casting of Ledger as The Joker though. Brokeback boy had better bring his "A" game and make believers out of us all! As far as Harvey Dent goes, He should be around the same age as Bruce Wayne, and he should not be turned into Two Face until the end of the movie so he and Scarecrow can come back in the third installment. Maybe we will get to see another new villain in the third movie, like Clayface, Killer Croc, or Mad Hatter!
