Dude what? You think the Penguin is more of a major player in Batman stories than Two Face? Are you a Batman fan at all?
Well Rhas wasn't very well known to the general public either.
Seriously man. What is it with you and The Reaper? That's all you seem to mention in every batman thread here. What makes you think he'd be more interesting than villains like The Riddler or Catwoman?
My opinion on Bane - I don't like hiim as the villain for the third movie. To me, he just isn't interesting enough. I just finished re-reading the whole "knightfall" story again, and I was more interested in whenever Batman came across random villains like Firefly and Zsaz.
How interesting could Nolan make a roid raging giant?

1. He's new to the general public: A lot of people in the general public don't know about him, thus, don't know what to expect from him... Giving the film a new layer of suspense that guys like Riddler couldn't supply...
2. Rachel is based on a comic character named Rachel Caspian, who just so happens to be Judson Caspian's daughter... You know who Judson Caspian is? That's right, he's The Reaper... After Gotham went to hell in Begins and Rachel [SPOILER - highlight to read]: died by the Joker's hand in TDK he'd have a reason to return to Gotham after a lengthy retirement in Europe...
3. The main part of the story in the next one is Batman being on the run and proving he isn't a murderous vigilante... What better way to prove he's truly Gotham's guardian than by stopping a murderous vigilante, in this case, The Reaper?
4. He's an awesome visual, awesomer than Riddler for sure (maybe not Catwoman, but then again, who's a better visual than Catwoman? )
See for yourself: (please log in to view the image)
And I remember reading somewhere that Nolan liked the character, and he used bits and pieces of the comic Year Two and it's sequel, Full Circle, in Begins (Joe Chill gets killed before Bruce can kill him, Rachel, Bruce throws the gun in the river, etc.) So it's not all that far fetched to think he'd use the villain in the next one...
But the people don't know Harvey's a murderous vigilante... That's the whole reason he's taking the blame for Harvey's crimes... If he just showed up and gunned a person down, people would be like "Yo man, you lied to us!" and then rally around Batman again... That would make no sense... All that covering up would be for nothing... Not to mention it would be bad writing and very anti-climactic...
people will know that their beloved D.A. is merely half dead corrupt bastard killing mobsters. That will throw the city back to sh*t knowing this. He doesnt just gun down anyone, he's smarter than that, and he'll leave his choices to the coin whether he kills or not, plus he already took out [SPOILER - highlight to read]: the detecs that got bought out by malroni and sal himself im guessing he's gonna go to bruce wayne next, cuz Rachel told Harvey TWICE that Bruce is someone that she can trust and then she was on the sh*t end of the other phoneline and [SPOILER - highlight to read]: and got blown to chunks Theres something personal that stems there. Bruce will probably say he would never do something to put rachel in harms way, and maybe even confess that he loved her, and theres some sh*t to go down, if you found out your dead girlfriend was still hanging around her ex while you were seeing her and he possibly had a helping hand in her demise, man....
The Rock is a great actor, but when it comes to comic characters, ya gotta think logically with the casting. Neither the Rock nor Vin Diesel would be right as Bane. They'd get laughed at so hard it'd be ridiculous.
