7 Great Batman Villains (Still Yet To Appear In A Film)
of what makes Batman so appealing is his depth as a character. His civilian
identity as Bruce Wayne has always proven fascinating for writers and directors
to explore in comics, films and games, with the aloof playboy persona he
presents to the public being the true mask that he wears. This is in stark
contrast to many of his superhero counterparts, whose characters are frequently
as dull as dishwater when you take their powers and outfits away.
is it that a villain has a gripe with Bruce Wayne specifically rather than
Batman, however. A notable exception is Hush, who quickly made an impact to the
Batman lore upon his 12 issue limited series debut in 2003, rapidly leaping
above longer serving foes in terms of prominence.
childhood friend of Bruce who secretly longed for his parents to die (as
Bruce’s had) so he could inherit their fortunes, Hush becomes envious and
eventually murderous over time. To that end, his appearances often make use of
his abilities as a world class surgeon, with the ‘Heart Of Hush’ limited series
and Arkham Knight having him perform plastic surgery on himself to impersonate
his childhood companion and attempt to destroy his company and reputation.
this would certainly be something different, though marketing a Batman film
without much Batman in it could be difficult. Hush allows his origins to be
explored from another angle, however, whilst being a genuinely terrifying
presence on screen.
