I can say who I don't want to see: Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Mr Freeze, Poison Ivy, Killer Croc.
I'm curious as to where they will go with this. Nolan has stated that it's going to wrap up with this film as Gotham accepting and embracing Batman as it's protector. So for it to do that, he must save it in a big way. And none of the villains above, I think, could threaten it to that level.
The Riddler looks like the most likely, though I also wouldn't be against seeing The Penguin. I know Nolan's against doing the more fantastical characters as he likes to keep an air of realism, so a Danny DeVito style Penguin just wouldn't work. My interpretation of the character would be similiar, in look, to Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Capote. But with the attitude of an evil arms dealer, a business rival of Bruce Wayne and secret supplier of military hardware to the mob in the fight against Batman and all his gadgets.
But, I've got a sneaky feeling it'll be Ra's Al Ghul again. And I wouldn't be surprised to find out if he was holding the Joker's leash. And the character is, in comic form anyway, immortal.
"Do I look like a guy with a plan?" If Joker isn't the one with the plan, who is?
Joker always professed to being a agent of chaos. And in the first film Ra's always professed the need for chaos so order could spring forth. Crazy theory I know, but I'd totally buy it.
