How can Batman 3 possibly top The Dark Knight? One of the deciding factors will surely be the choice of villain ... or should that be villains? Because as we all debate which bad guy director Christopher Nolan should choose, Morgan Freeman just hinted that Nolan may end up choosing more than one.

Freeman, who played Bruce Wayne's armorer and technical genius Lucius Fox in the previous films, has been talking up bringing back Catwoman, and when asked recently if Nolan was on board with that idea, he said:

"Well, yes and no. But I don't know if that's going to be his choice. There's been talk of the Riddler, talk of the Joker—I don't mean the Joker—the Penguin. Philip Seymour Hoffman as the Penguin, and that sounds interesting to me. So we'll wait and see. And there just may be more than one."

Check out the entire interview below.

So—not just a single villain, but maybe more. Do you agree with that direction? Or do you think Nolan should stick to a single villain?

Batman 3 is set to hit theaters July 20, 2012.
