For the past day, the big buzz on Christopher Nolan's third Batman film is that the film will shoot next April in Louisiana. The supposition for the Louisiana location, after the previous two films did so much photography in Chicago, is that Warner Bros. loves the tax breaks that helped out Green Lantern when it shot in the state earlier this year.

But what if the location also played into the incorporation of a particular character into the story? A Killer Croc might be at home in Louisiana swamps, yes? Let the speculation begin! (It already has; we're just pushing you to talk about it.)

It started like this: ComingSoon reported that Batman 3 would shoot in April in New Orleans. And then comics writer Mark Millar dropped a pair of tweets that went as follows:

1) 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.

2) One of the villains is from my favourite childhood run on the character. Again, very unexpected.

So, Millar (who I don't often believe to begin with) mentions a non-Gotham locale, which dovetails with the unconfirmed report of New Orleans, which has swamps, and naturally Killer Croc's name comes up. Totally solid, right? Especially since Killer Croc first appeared in 1983, when Millar would have been 13. Does that count as within the timeframe for favorite childhood run in Batman? Maybe.

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.

It wont work in Nolan's realistic take on batman unless its the killer croc from the Joker graphic novel that came out back n 08.

Ill pass on Killer Croc but this edition of the Batman movies are the best superhero series ever so I'm sure it'll be dope regardless.

honestly The RIddler is the way to go...I wouldn't mind Two-Face cause I like how Aaron Eckhart portrayed him, but that's not gonna happen. I think we're gonna get someone unexpected though..

I always wanted Calender Man / Girl to be in it.
I thought about that possibility but if you look at the main source of Nolan's inspiration which is the graphic novel The Long Halloween, Calendar Man plays a Hannibal Lector type role in it and i dont see nolan recreating another movie like that. But if he did use that character he would prolly use the real stories the villain had. Also Calendar Man isnt really known to the general public so who knows.

Yeah, but Calender Girl's story is much more realistic, and not Hannibal Lector-esque. Like her mental issue's, where she thinks her face is disfigured, but infact is perfectly normal and all.

And how she arranges deaths on dates and shit, that would be crazy!
