Scarecrow back?

05.14.2007

Hot off the quiet reveal of the DARK KNIGHT logo, we've got some word on what villain might be joining the Joker in the BATMAN BEGINS sequel. Batman-on-Film is reporting that Cillian Murphy and the Scarecrow will return for THE DARK KNIGHT. Originally there were rumors that Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin would be in the film but that news was debunked and many began to wonder if another villain would join Joker. It's unclear how large Scarecrow's role will be but he may play a part in helping Joker concoct his "Joker toxin". BOF has a number of other interesting tidbits in their latest update including that Maggie Gyllenhaal's Rachel will have a larger part than Katie Holmes did and that Batman's suit will now be made of a more flexible chainmail type material. Here's hoping for some dramatic reveals at this summer's Comic-Con.

Extra Tidbit: In the "Knightfall" storyline Joker and Scarecrow team only to have Scarecrow turn on Joker using his fear gas on him. It doesn't work and Joker beats his senseless for his treason.

His freakin' eyes, and his wierd flat face. But afraid of him? Let's hope the Joker has you hiding under your seat. Of course, he is being played by Heath Ledger.

I'm hip to it as long as it is minimal. Scarecrow was good as a smarmy, physically weak villain (after all, he is whipped by Rachel Dawes), but he should not have a huge role in Knight. Murphy was good, but where he would fit with a Joker in play is questionable. With Two-face and possibly Penguin on deck, I'd just rather see a mano a mano between Bats and the Joker.

Yes!

This is what I was hoping for. Hopefully, as I previously mentioned in another post and cerealkiller did here, The Scarecrow will be the one to assist The Joker in his "Joker Venom" creation. They're both great villains and I'm glad that Cillian is going to be returning.

Eh-Nam13

Check this little picture out and I think you will change your tune:

If it doesnt, I have no hope in you ever becoming A MAN! Unless your a girl, then I dunno.

But, I wouldnt mind them teaming up and the scarcrow double crossing the joker and maybe causing the disfigurement we all know and love!

Woot!

GIVE ME A BREAK

What the hell is it with people and Maggie Gyllenhaal? I think she's beautiful.

Cool that Scarecrow's back, I would expect it to be a small role, but sounds great.

It would be cool if Scarecrow was only in the first five minutes, in which the Joker takes his toxin and then promptly ills him in a greusome/ironic fashion.

Also I thought the Rachel Dawes charater was going to have a smaller role. I'm not down with expanded roles of love interests (see Spider-Man 3...actually don't see it)

I hope the Scarecrow does have something to do with the Joker toxin? It would make it less stupid that way to have two villains with gas oriented weapons in a row. At least there'd be a reason.

cool

Cillian Murphy was great as Scarecrow in BB, but underused, so it's cool he's back in the Dark Knight :)

kick a$$ news if true, Im down with the whole Maggie thing, not sure about the chain mail, I get visions of LotR for some reason but it will probably be an even cooler Bat-suit
