OK, so the Ventriloquist would probably ruin Christopher Nolan’s career if he ever attempted using him as a villain. Or, it could solidify him as the most inventive director of all time if he actually pulled it off. Either way, we would have loved to have seen this bizarre villain put to film, as he’s quite possibly the craziest of all of Batman’s villains. Yes, even crazier than the Joker.
The Ventriloquist’s insanity has no bounds. Holding a doll aptly named Scarface, Arnold Wesker honestly believes that the doll is calling the shots, and this would have made an interesting dynamic in Nolan’s world. We could actually feel bad for the villain this time. He’s seriously mentally ill.
