Default Batman Begins II - The Villian?

I was watching Batman Begins last night and it struck me about half way through that it seems like Rutger Hauer was being setup as the villian in the next film. My reasoning is as follows:

1) He wasn't a big player in the film, but whenever he was on the screen he was being portrayed as power hungry, self-absorbed, and arrogant

2) His appearance resembled the joker somewhat. They made him excessively pale (even for him) and his hair cut was similar to jack's in the first film.

As to whether he could pull it off, I'm unsure, but I don't think they can just let his character die off like that because although he had a minor role on screen, his character's influence in Bruce's life was big. I'm not sure where I'm going with this now.

Any ideas?

I think they were just "setting up" the first movie.

That's what crossed my mind originally, but then my buddy googled it and found out that they were holding casting for the part of the joker. It could just be deception. I haven't read the comics or anything, but with the changed atmostphere of the movies I wouldn't mind them doing another movie with the joker. Anything but another Mr.Freeze.

did you check imdb.com? I think a "remake" of the first move would just be weird.

Haven't looked there yet. I don't think a re-make would be all that strange. The atmosphere of the series has definately changed. Its very dark now even compared to the Tim Burton films. I see your point though. I wouldn't mind them brining in new villians.

who would you bring in as the new villians?
No one immediately springs to mind (I'm trying to remember the animated series) but I'm gonna blame that on the 5 shots and 3 beers.....

No one immediately comes to mind, but my same friend who googled the info on the casting call found out that the DA was two-face.

I've imdb'ed it and my roomate is a huge comic book movie dork. It is going to be a remake of the first one, which is risky.

We learn that in Batman Forever, there is a short clip showing Two-face as the DA and then some mob boss throws acid on him in court hence his [censored] up face.

I think the sequel stars James Caviezel as Jesus.
