I just can't see him fighting any mutant/monster-type villains in this new series. They seem to be going for as real as possible.
Then they don't leave themselves too much room. People forget that although they're going to need a new villain, they're also going to need a new female lead/love interest. Therefore Catwoman cannot be completely ruled out. May not happen but you can't dismiss it out of hand.
Some other villains not mentioned they could do are Killer Croc and Mad Hatter. Killer Croc would be tough to do if you want to base it in realism and get away from the CGI stuff, although if you had him in the movie where he's not fully transformed but definitely lizard-like that might work. And Mad Hatter would go hand-in-hand with Riddler as a more mental than physical foe for Bats, although he'd have to be with another villain as I don't think Hatter himself is a strong enough character to be the main guy.
Just a thought but what about Harley Quinn as a villain/female lead? Joker is (assumed) locked up in Arkham, she's the psychiatrist but he gets to her and brainwashes her and she picks up where Joker left off on the outside. If you want the Joker character to end with Ledger, fine, don't show the Joker on-screen and instead just have Quinn as the focus but let is be known he's manipulating her and gradually through the first half the movie you can see her mind being shaped by him. Just a thought anyway.
Definitely curious to see where they go from here as far as villains and stuff.
