Capizzi was interviewed on World's finest on the Superman: Brainiac Attacks movie. The last question dealt with The Batman and what to come next season.
Q: And to wrap up, can you drop any tiny hints on what to expect on The Batman in season four?
A: Season Four may be the most fan-oriented season yet. It's no secret that we're introducing Robin to the series; we're also going to meet Nightwing in an episode, in a very interesting way. Penguin will attempt to form his own version of an "injustice gang," and among other villains we'll be meeting Killer Moth, the Matt Hagen version of Clayface, Black Mask, and Harley Quinn (in an episode penned by none other than Harley's creator, Paul Dini). We'll also discover more about Riddler's past, and Batman will finally team up with a superhero from outside the 'Detective Comics' universe. Yes, it's a JLA member -- but I won't say who, you know I hate spoilers. :-)
1 - Superman (Capizzi already did him so he could do him in the TB universe differently, plus theres a new movie, and the Dark Knight's first team up was with Superman anyways)
2 - Zatanna (she is one of Batman true love interests thats interested in Bruce since she is a friend. Nothing happened in the three seasons, or 2 after she and him met, between Bruce/Batman & Selina/Catwoman so...)
3 - The Question (A detective who now operates in Gotham in 52, plus he's just like the Dark Knight in detective part)
4 - Green Arrow (Same with The Question; just like the Dark KNight. Only this time, its the man behind the mask as well)
5 - Wonder Woman ("relationship" between those two was brought so she is in this ranking, but last. I could see her AFTER Batman and Superman have met. BEFORE: never.)

My thinking is this hero is more than likely gonna have to be someone they can make a figure out of. SO my money is on Superman, Green Arrow, or Martian Manhunter. With MM they could play off his and Bruces really close friendship. Always thought a Green Arrow cartoon like the Batman would be cool. Id love a wonder woman crossover though. Especially if there was a possibility of her getting her own cartoon. Although someone not mainstream would be really cool to - Vigilante, Shining Knight, Mister Terrific, etc. Basically anyone form JLU would be cool. Have a feeling its not gonna be the Question.

WOW, that sounds great! Curious about Nightwing! Also, the thing with JLA member, hope it is Zatanna... The only thing that bothers me is the Injustice Gang, normally a great idea, but why it will it be lead by the Penguin Can't they give him a break....
This sounds all very promising! Hope Ivy make an appeareance this season, could be interesting with Robin....

I know who the JLA member is, nah nah! lol
I know too! And - I'm gonna spoil it for all here highlight to read: PLASTIC MAN! That way they can spin it off into his own ongoing series.
[shadow=green,left,300]*Spits out Drink with suprise* Good one Reideen! Heheh we will all soon find out my friends. Riddler's past amuses me though, I have been wanting to see this since the Riddler hasn't given us a past story ("Gotham's Ultimate Criminal Mastermind" had told about all villains except Riddler) and most villains on the show have had flashbacks to the past! Some reason I have been having daydreams about what Riddler looks like as a kid... I'd like to see that lol. You are joking right? About[/shadow]
You Know Who
[shadow=green,left,300]Not that I'm complaining but like J-Man said I would be amused to see you know who on the show [/shadow]
a) His statue showed up in Grundy's Night, so he exists b) It would be great as a tie-in of sorts to Superman Returns c) LOSH has Superboy, not Superman. So no problem there
a) That doesn't really matter... it was a simple cameo and could be overlooked. sure, he exists. Doesn't mean they'll go the way of previous shows and have him show up. Also, they way Capizzi was talkin' in the interview makes me sure that it will NOT be Superman. b) No... it would not be a great tie-in to Superman returns, as it will have been out of theaters for a while by the time this season starts to air. c) Yes, LOSH has "Superboy" ...but it's still Clark Kent. therefore, i imagine there WOULD be a problem.
Quite honestly, i kinda hope it IS the previously mentioned/spoiled hero (Jack-ups, you forgot to hide it again ;D) ...It would make perfect sense, really, since he and Batman have actually known each other for a long, long time (before any Justice League was ever formed).
