and let it be known
Over here at the Official The Mary Sue The Dark Knight Rises
Breaking Newsometer and Speculate-erator (TM), we've been waiting expectantly on the confirmation of another villain for TDRK
. Sure, the movie is pretty much cast and has even started filming in India and London, but so far there are only two confirmed big-name villains that appear in it, and for a Christopher Nolan
Batman film, that is clearly waaay too few, especially when Catwoman has never been so much a villain as a wildcard. The Dark Knight
had four recognizable villain names on its cast (Joker, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Sal Maroni) and Begins
had six (Henri Ducard, Scarecrow, Carmine Falcone, Ra's al Ghul, Joe Chill, and Victor Zsasz).
And, as we expected, here's our first bit of news to support this (entirely scientifically accurate and rigorous) statistical history of Nolan Batman movies: Matthew Modine
, who has been cast as a character named Nixon, is "a politician and a key villain,” at least according to Showbiz 411.
