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?

DCR

Article by Gregg Katzman

DC Rebirth has done an amazing job re-energizing my interest in the publisher’s fictional universe. The DC Rebirth Special was a brilliant way to begin the new direction and it’s so obvious that DC has a clear focus with each of these titles: celebrate what people love about these characters and teams. Go back to the basics, and then do something fresh with it. Don’t change things just for the sake of changing them. Instead, embrace the positive and run with it! So far, each and every title has managed to capture my interest; some more than others, obviously, but the fact that all of the titles have me wanting to see more proves that the publisher really has given this new direction everything they’ve got. Okay, I could go on and on about why I think DC Rebirth is a step in the right direction (you can read a coworker’s editorial about that here), but that’s not why you’re here. You’re here because you want to see what DC has to offer on this week’s new comic book day! So grab a drink, get comfortable, and prepare to get excited for brand new DC Rebirth issues!
