Batman Anthology Wiki

Dr. Jonathan Crane, also known as "Scarecrow", is a patient at Arkham Asylum.


  • Scarecrow was one of the villains planned to star in Batman Unchained, the fifth in the Batman Anthology, which would have starred Scarecrow as the main antagonist. Actors Nicolas Cage, Steve Buscemi and Jeff Goldblum were the most likely candidates for the role.[1][2] Scarecrow would have appeared alongside Harley Quinn, who would have been portrayed by either Madonna or Courtney Love. Scarecrow's fear gas was meant to resurrect Joker. However, due to the almost universally negative reception of Batman & Robin, the film was canceled.[3]
