I think they've done enough with the Scarecrow; I found Batman Begins too hard to follow; the original one with Keaton and Nicholson was better. The Dark Knight was great though, so hopefully the third one is going to be good as well.
But yeah, like I said above, why not have a female villain? We've seen plenty of male villains in these two movies already (Scarecrow, that dude who came after Bruce, Joker, Two-Face, that crooked cop), and there were plenty of female villains in the Batman comics, cartoon, and old series. I'd like to see what they'd do to a female villain in this darker series.
And adding a darker version of Robin and/or Batgirl wouldn't be a bad idea; that was my favorite movie of the old series.

No Robin. Old news, but I haven't seen anything going against this yet.
For females, there's not nearly as many as there are men. Catwoman or Poison Ivy could be interesting if done right (example: in the comics, Catwoman is an accomplished burglar, not a murdered secretary resurrected by housecats). Harley Quinn, though, just won't work without Joker.
The only other regularly recurring character I can think of offhand is Talia al Ghul, who could work in the "getting revenge for the death of her father in the first film" kind of way, then "rebelling against her father (who's not really dead and becoming Batman's love interest". Personally though, I think it's too soon for Talia, or Rhas al Ghul's return; I'd save them for a fifth movie, at the earliest.
EDIT: Jane Doe could be interesting, but she may be a bit too gory for the series.

Professor Pyg. He's a bit too dark too and requires Damien to exist for the canon to be upheld but an interesting character to be sure, to be sure.

Well, female villains could be tricky and sneaky, using seduction techniques (badly) to try to defeat Batman. Meh, I'm tired so just shooting things off here. But I think it would be much more interesting to have a female for once. Especially since they killed Rachel off; the entire cast will be only male now except for a few random civilians who aren't major characters. And that's just sexist.
Too bad that there won't be a Robin, I think he'd be a great addition.

I could see having Professor Pig, the Mad Hatter, or Jane Doe as secondary villains in the film. I do not think a Batman movie would do well without having a "main" character (such as the more publicly known bad guys) in seat of the primary storyline.

How about making new villains that put Batman into a very tight situation. Like Bruce Wayne's parents coming back as zombies.
Call it "Attack of the Zombie Parents!", or something equally cool.

I gotta agree with Harlequin.
Also, zombie parents would still rule.
