ComicBookMovie.com, editor Brent Sprecher has reportedly been contacted by a plot outliner at Warner Bros. who has been mapping out the basic elements of the next Batman film.
According to Sprecher, there are five key plot points to the Batman 3 premise:
1. The primary villain will be The Riddler, who will discover Batman’s true identity.
2. Arkham Asylum makes a return from Batman Begins as a key locale.
3. Other classic Batman villains will be injected into the story, including the Penguin and Mr. Freeze (who will be Dr. Fries).
4. Barbara Gordon will be featured prominently in the story.
5. Commissioner Gordon will reference Metropolis – and perhaps Lex Luthor by name – in the story.
