Following off the success of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker film that focused on a more standalone character dissection over just being a Batman film, I'd love to see Man Bat make his first cinematic debut!
Robert Kirkland Langstrom's brief character arc in the Arkham Knight video game was that of a self regretting Frankenstein monster that'd killed his one true love in a confused and blind rage, it was genuinely impactful for a mere sidequest... This story is bleak and dark and all around easy enough to adapt into a "Joker-esque" one off story that I'd want to see on the big screen!
Even if they'd wanted to do it as a Batman feature, having Man Bat as the enemy, I wouldn't complain! This is one of Batman's lesser talked about and severely overlooked villains! This is one of the only instances where the Batman had to take down a foe who'd only wanted to better mankind, there was ZERO criminal interest in any of his goals... His character oozes the hopeless sympathy you felt for both Frankenstein's Monster and even Dr. Octavius in SpiderMan 2, both being characters turned nefarious under misguided intentions for good... I'm hoping we'll see "Strange Case of Dr. Langstrom and Mr. Man Bat" in the foreseeable future!
