Batman:The Dark Knight Rises Villain?

For months now rumours have been circulating about the next instalment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman series.  The most recent of these rumours is that the third film in franchise, Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, is that it will be based on the graphic novel Batman: Prey.  This idea isn’t unrealistic as both of Nolan’s previous Batman movies have been based on graphic novels.

If the rumours are true then that means Hugo Strange will be the villain of the movie.  Fans are also speculating that Tom Hardy has been cast to play Hugo Strange.  This is, at this stage, all just rumours, but the story of Batman: Prey would fit right in to the dark world Nolan has created.  In Prey Hugo Strange is a psychoanalyst that is hired to find out who Batman is.  As he analyses Batman’s behaviour he becomes obsessed and wants to kill Batman and take this place.

Nothings set in stone, but fans seem to be favouring this idea.  As I said earlier, the first two films in the franchise were inspired by graphic novels.  Coincidently, these were graphic novels in the same continuality as Prey.  It’s not cold hard fact, but for now it’s all we’ve got.  Let me know if basing the movie on Prey would make you happy or sad by commenting and voting below.

    I know nothing abour Prey or Hugo Strange, so I kinda like the feeling of now knowing what to expect from the next film.

    The Dark Knight ended with the police having to hunt Batman. So it would make sense that the next film would see more efforts to find out who he is. I expected the Riddler, as one (non-canon) version of batman has him as a private detective, hired to find out who batman is and then becoming obsessed with him. but by the sounds of it this Hugo Strange guy has almost the exact same storyline!!
