I really want more good Batman stories but he should stop trying to make the "Definitive Batman Story”. We got that with the Nolan trilogy. Beginning to end in the life of Batman and it was awesome.

They should now be trying to tell the parts in middle.

Some possibilities:

1. Look at this crime he solved while facing off against the Riddler (not Jim Carey).
2. Tell the Jason Todd story and give us Hush.
3. Batman gets locked up in Arkham, watch him get out.
4. Give us a good Mr. Freeze story.
5. Live action Phantasm.
6. Man-bat is awesome if done well.
7. Professor Pyg is creepy as hell
8. Clayface!

I'd watch all 8 of those films. Since it's going to be a prequel I could see the Reeves films having less powerful villains (Penguin, Riddler ect) and then some films that take place after JL where Affleck is Batman and he faces off against more fantastical villains (Clayface, Mr.Freeze, ect).

Apparently Alexander Daddario is going to be cast as Huntress for the Birds of Prey movie.

They need to do a 3 hour opus where Batman faces off against the greatest villain ever Calendar Man.

If they did a Long Halloween movie I'd be happy.

I think its a prank because, lets be honest, Henry Cavill probably needs the money.

I'm guessing The Batman will be mostly a mix of the Red Hood storyline and The Killing Joke.

Maybe I should say hoping instead.

Oh yeah, because mixing and matching source material has worked out so well for DC thus far.

DC Universe isn't going anywhere. They just confirmed that Birds of Prey will start filming next year same with the Flash and The Batman is also most likely filming next year.

So Ruby Rose will star as a lesbian Batwoman in a new DC CW show. DC is just throwing #### at the wall at this point right?

Bautista says he won't be in Vol. 3 without Gunn's script.

The current incarnation of Batwoman in the comics is a lesbian, so it's not out of place.

Not to mention the television is one of the few things DC actually does well.

Really? I tried watching episodes of both Arrow and The Flash, and they were cringe material. They are absolutely terrible compared to any of Marvel's Netflix stuff (save Iron Fist)
