Since there's been plenty of talk about who may or may not show up in Arkham Knight and who we want or don't want; I thought I'd do something a little different and make a list of villains that have been in the past two games and those that are confirmed for Arkham Knight.
If my list is correct:
Arkham Asylum - 7 villains in action, 2 extra = 9 villains
Arkham City - 16 villains in action, 4 extra = 20 villains
Arkham Knight - 7 confirmed
Arkham Asylum Arkham City Arkham Knight
Killer Croc Killer Croc (cameo)
Harley Quinn Harley Quinn Harley Quinn
Victor Zsasz Victor Zsasz
Riddler (voice) Riddler Riddler
Poison Ivy Poison Ivy
Clayface (cameo) Clayface
Black Mask (cameo)
Calendar Man (cameo?)
Talia al Ghul
Ra's al Ghul
Red Hood (story?)

For those of you who don't know all of Robin's and Nightwing's skills , here are some great reasons to see them in action in AK
Robin (Tim Drake)
Martial Arts Master: Tim has been trained by Batman, Nightwing, Batgirl, Lady Shiva and assorted others in a wide assortment of martial arts disciplines which include but are not limited to Kung Fu, Aikido, Jeet Kune Do, Escrima, Krav Maga, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Wing Chun, Hapkido, Karate, Savate, Kendo, Ninjitsu, Tai Chi, Leopard Kung fu and Biangan. His abilities with the bo-staff gives him an extra edge with his fighting. He has also been considered the most skilled hero in all the DC Universe with his preferred weapon of choice. Although he has not mastered near as many fighting styles as his mentors, he has managed to use the training given to be considered a highly skilled combatant.
Escapologist: Batman and Nightwing have trained Red Robin to be skilled in escaping from any trap, lock or captivity, ranging from the most simplistic of handcuffs to the most elaborate of cages.
Gifted Intellect: His naturally high intellect allows him to excel in computer science and more importantly as a skilled detective. Further more, Tim apparently has a firm grasp of assorted scientific techniques including biology, engineering and genetics, which he has been shown to use in his attempts at re-cloning Superboy. Batman states that Tim could potentially be smarter and better than himself. The Batman has trained him in many disciplines, such as forensic, criminology, acrobatics, stealth, disguise, and escapology.
Master Detective: His ability to deduce the secret identities of superheroes on his own has been used to underscore his skill. Among the identities used in this way are the Batman, both of his predecessors as Robin, the Huntress, Impulse, the Flash, and Captain Marvel.
Master Tactician and Strategist: Tim, much like **bleep** Grayson is also a brilliant and experienced strategist with impressive leadership skills, having served as leader to the Teen Titans, Young Justice, and even being placed in charge of the rescue efforts of Blüdhaven by Superman, following the attack made by Deathstroke and his fellow villains. In recent times, he has managed to orchestrate the unified control of the Gotham Street Gangs, thus reducing the threats they pose to the city.
Peak Human Conditioning: Having undergone an evidently vigorous and intensive training regimen under Batman as Robin, he has exercised physical form to near-perfection for someone of his age for the purposes of fighting crime. Over time his body developed into a more muscular tone and as Nightwing he is able to easily utilize this with great strength, stamina and agility.
Genius Intellect: Taught by the Brilliant Batman, Nightwing possess vast knowledge in several fields in the world. He is especially an expert in technology as he improved his hacking, and technological skills since becoming Nightwing nearly outclassing Batman in those fields.
Master Combatant: Nightwing is an incredible combatant in terms of close quarters combat. He is known as the strongest of all the titans and is on justice league level though he possess no super powers, much like his former mentor. Nightwing has mastered several fighting attributs such as hand to hand combat, weaponry and especially acrobatics.
