As many of you know, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit theaters later this week, and likely change the way we view superhero movies. We’re excited about so many elements from the coming film, but one of the aspects that intrigues us the most is Ben Affleck’s portrayal of an older, more grizzled Batman. He’s the most deeply explored comic book characters in all of cinema, and as a result, Affleck will likely bring something incredibly different than what we have seen before in order to stand out.

That has us wondering about the future of the Batman solo movies. The Dark Knight has an incredibly broad pool of rogues to face off against in his future adventures. Some characters, such as The Joker, are fundamental to the character and will obviously show up at some point; however, there are some Batman villains that Warner Bros. should absolutely steer clear of as they continue to develop the DCEU. With that in mind, we’ve developed a list of the six Batman rogues who should be avoided for the foreseeable future, with reasons why. Without further ado, let’s get the ball rolling:

Ra's Al Ghul / League of Assassins
Prior to the release of Batman Begins in 2005, many casual audiences probably had not even heard of Ra’s Al Ghul or his League of Assassins – or League of Shadows, in the Nolan verse. In the decade since that film’s release, innumerable DC properties have brought the shady organization and its mystical leader back to the forefront of our collective consciousness. Between The Dark Knight trilogy, the Arkham games, the DC animated universe, and the League’s inclusion on The CW’s Arrow, we think it’s safe to say that Ra’s Al Ghul and his League of Assassins should take a brief sabbatical before they wear out their welcome. Ra’s Al Ghul is a great villain, and the League represents a formidable opponent for the Caped Crusader, but it’s time for them to return to the shadows.
