Article by Gregg Katzman

It’s official: Slade Wilson, a.k.a. Deathstroke the Terminator, is joining DC’s evergrowing cinematic universe – and his movie design appears to be inspired by his costume in Batman: Arkham Origins. Who has DC and WB cast for the role? We have no idea, but we do know we’re seriously excited to see DC’s deadly mercenary on the big screen! We strongly encourage reading some of Slade’s stories – especially the Judas Contract and The Trial of the Terminator, which are in Tales of the Teen Titans – but for now, here are a few things everyone should know about Deathstroke.

Oh, and just so you know, Deathstroke – who was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez – made his debut in 1980 (New Teen Titans #2); Deadpool – who was created by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza – made his debut in 1991 (The New Mutants #98).

BATMAN FAMILY

Article by John Quinones

Now that DC has established its cinematic universe with Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and the upcoming Wonder Woman and Justice League, I wonder who else from the source material will be making an appearance in the cinematic universe and what stories would DC and Warner Bros. use. With Ben Affleck’s success as Batman I decided to cast some other heroes from Gotham that we might possibly see in ol’ Bat’s film future.  I decided to cast the Robins and propose some story lines that would be an awesome segue for the boy wonder.  Now I know what you must be thinking… NO!!!! Leave Robin out of the DCEU!  Didn’t you see what happened before?  Batman and Robin crash and burned the entire franchise!!

I know, which is why I am proposing to cast all the iterations of Robin and not try to combine Dick Grayson and Jason Todd into one character.  That being said, we know that the new take on Batman is after the death of Robin.  Although it’s not specified in the films I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that they at least got that right and the Robin in question is Jason Todd.  If that is the case, then Dick Grayson’s Robin has already come and gone from the Batcave and is now Nightwing.  So who do I think would be a good Dick Grayson?
