Batman will always definitely be the hero we deserve, but after headlining ten films in the past three decades, he’s not the hero we need right now. Let’s take a look at all the other Batman characters who deserve their own movies.
If you want a villain who’s begging for a solo movie, Clayface’s origin story is basically already the plot to an amazing horror film. The original version is set around the filming of a slasher movie called Dread Castle, but whenever it’s time to film a death scene, suddenly the lights go out, and the actor playing the victim mysteriously dies for real. Those who catch glimpses of the fleeing killer see that he looks like “Clayface,” a famous fictional monster from another old horror film.
Eventually, Batman intervenes and discovers that the “Clayface Killer” is actually horror actor/makeup artist Basil Karlo, who played both the movie monster Clayface and the killer in the original Dread Castle. Karlo claims he committed the murders because he didn’t want anyone replacing him as Dread Castle’s killer. He’d apparently played so many fictional monsters that it turned him into a real-life horror movie villain.
A version of this story, with or without Batman, could be an awesome horror flick, like Scream set in the ’40s. And since he can look like anyone, there’s no guarantee that they got the right guy. How’s that for a third-act twist?
Usually, the only Batman villains who make it to the big screen are the truly threatening A-list masterminds like the Joker and Ra’s al Ghul. That’s all well and good, but a wonderful thing about Batman is that he has so many villains that go beyond just the household names. Gotham has an extremely deep roster of B-list baddies, so we’d be remiss if we didn’t include at least one of Batman’s minor, more comedic enemies. Keep watching the full video to see more of the Batman characters we wish had their own movie.
