‘Batman 3’ To Feature Killer Croc as Primary Villain?

At this point these rumors don’t hold much weight, but there’s some interesting fuel for debate here. Apparently Christopher Nolan's upcoming Batman 3 may be shot in Louisiana next April, a unique locale, as opposed to the Gotham City surroundings we‘ve all become so familiar with.

To add to the mystery, the rumor mill is spawning plenty of speculation that the Killer Croc could be a primary villain with which Batman is forced to deal with in the franchise’s latest offering.

Killer Croc isn’t too difficult a character concept to wrap one’s head around, but here’s some background:

Waylon Jones is a former crocodile wrestler turned into a criminal deformed by a birth defect. He has low intelligence but great strength, as well as crocodilian abilities, such as a keen sense of smell and the ability to hold his breath underwater for long periods of time.

Comic writer Mark Millar dropped a few tweets, which haven’t done much other than tease fans a bit. Here’s what Mark had to say via Twitter:

“Oh, wait. Con gossip: I know who the villain(s) are in Batman 3 and the big scene outside Gotham sounds awesome. Totally timely locale.”

A second tweet reveals “One of the villains is from my favourite childhood run on the character. Again, very unexpected.”

Millar’s statements indicate the rumors of a New Orleans shoot could be possible. Keep in mind that New Orleans has plenty of swamps, and swamps have plenty of crocodiles. Killer Croc is a character who first appeared in 1983, when Millar was just 13 years old, no wonder he's a favorite of Millar.

It’s all just speculation at this time, but the pieces seem to fit fairly well!

Who do you think Batman will clash with in the upcoming Batman 3?
