I'd like to see the other Clayfaces appear in some animated projects, not just Matt Hagen and Basil Karlo (and Mrs. Clayface from the old DC Super Hero Girls ). I think they have some potential, especially Preston Payne since his powers are kind of different compared to the others.
Preston Payne was in one of the villain paintings in the episode "Joker: The Vile and the Villainous" of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. I assumed that meant in that universe, the Preston Payne version of Clayface was the one they chose, but then the Scooby Doo crossover movie just used Basil Karlo again.
I think they referenced Payne in Beware too, in one of the final episodes....
That's always been my personal headcanon since that Mr. Payne was trying to change his identity via a fake ID, though that was never confirmed. I wish the showrunners shared any plans about what they wanted to do with the show if they had another season or two, but oh well.
