6. The Riddler

Of all the characters on this list, it is perhaps The Riddler who is best suited to recreating the success of Joker with a similar style of film. Gotham City’s resident puzzler has been compared to the Clown Prince of Crime on many occasions over the years, but the emerald enigma is such a rich character in his own right that it often feels like he never gets the focus that someone with his formidable presence should get.

That could all be changed with a Joker-esque tale that documents why the outcast Edward Nygma ultimately finds himself drawn into the world of crime and takes great pleasure in outwitting those he targets by backing them into a corner with riddles he knows they can’t answer.

Like Joker, this wouldn’t need to make any direct references to Batman – just tell the story of how the corrupt city broke the unfortunate young man seeking to impress those around him, birthing a criminal mastermind in the process. A criminal mastermind too smart for anyone who isn’t The Dark Knight.

Nygma has a ring to it, doesn’t it? If not that, then Riddle Me This would be good. Or it could just go full-blown Joker and use Riddler. Either way, the story would undoubtedly rival that of the Clown Prince of Crime.
