I know that in Season 2 of this series, each episode featured two villains either helping each other or fighting each other. Is there a trope for that?

I'm not familiar with law and rights and such, but why wouldn't Warner Bros. allow them to use Two-Face, Scarecrow and Ra's al-Ghul? WB owns the rights to the movie and the show, so how does them being in the movie series at the same time harm them at all? Wouldn't some kids WANT to watch a superhero movie if they knew their favourite villain from the cartoon was in it, and vice versa, especially since this show was made to tie into Batman Begins in the first place?

It's not a rights issue at all. It's just WB policy. They only want one depiction of their characters in popular media at a time.

Well, that explains why Sinestro isn't in Season 1 of Green Lantern, but I still can't see why they have that policy.
