A bonafide TV Batman may have become the holy grail for DC fans, between the Arrow-verse tiptoeing around direct reference to the Dark Knight, or Gotham languishing in its inability to wait for Bruce Wayne’s future. Supergirl even made our first direct reference to Gotham City, and may now have hinted at Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman working with a troubled, technologically skilled vigilante.

Rumor: Catwoman Will Not Appear in Ben Affleck’s ‘The Batman’

For as much as Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies varied wildly in tone and aesthetics, one thing both franchises got right was the character of Catwoman. Michelle Pfeiffer played Selina Kyle in Batman Returns as a demented femme fatale, the true star of Burton’s sequel, while Anne Hathaway’s high-tech criminal was the perfect updating of the character for Nolan’s urban Batnoir. One unhinged and unbroken, the other sleek and urbane, the perfect summary of two separate directorial styles.

With Doug Liman recently signing on to helm Guillermo del Toro’s long-developing Dark Universe project, it shouldn’t be much longer now before supernatural forces invade the live-action DC movie universe. Until then, the animated DCU is a step ahead with Justice League Dark, unveiling the first official trailer for their latest R-rated feature — hopefully it’ll be a bit less controversial than The Killing Joke.

As dour and moody as the DC films have been so far, it’s about time they throw some humor into the mix. A lot of the heroes who’ll be in Justice League haven’t been properly introduced to us yet, including Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and Ezra Miller’s Flash. It’s only Superman who will have had a solo introduction before Justice League kicks off, with Ben Affleck’s Batman getting his intro in the middle of essentially the second Superman movie. Luckily, Batman and the Flash will have some quality time to get to know one another, as, according to Ezra Miller, it sounds like the two will have a more buddy comedy-style relationship.

Earlier this week, Bret Easton Ellis made headlines when he claimed that the script for The Batman was terrible and that Warner Bros. didn’t really care. In an interview with The Ringer (via io9), Ellis mentioned having dinner with a few studio executives who had heard through the rumor mill that several people involved in Ben Affleck’s movie had approached Warner Bros. with a list of changes needed to iron out the script. According to Ellis’ sources, the executives were told that the studio just didn’t care.

The Arrow franchise has long held a curious interaction with major Batman characters, culminating in a season devoted to Ra’s al Ghul himself, and it seems we’re not done with the League of Assassins just yet. Season 5 will officially introduce a Stargate SG-1 star as Ra’s daughter Talia al Ghul, half-sister to Nyssa.

Between the epic run of Game of Thrones and the impressive first season of Westworld, odds are good that you’re currently rocking an annual subscription to HBO or HBOGo. Few networks are still in the business of appointment television, but with social media sites like Twitter exploding into a flurry of spoilers after each new episode of both shows, fans are finding that their only real options are to watch on time or to not watch at all. In fact, we can sometimes get so caught up in the flurry of long-form television that we forget that HBO has some pretty darn good movies, too.

Jeremy Irons Thinks ‘The Batman’ Could Start Filming Next Summer

We don’t know much about Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie, save for its blessedly punctuation-free title and the fact that Affleck and Deathstroke will be in it, and with all the work being done on Wonder Woman and Justice League, The Batman is probably pretty far on the back burner right now. But plans are still being set in motion, and our latest Alfred, Jeremy Irons, says that the movie will start production as soon as next summer.

‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ Reveals a Ridiculous Amount of Bat-Vehicles in New Photo

One of the great things about The LEGO Movie is that the characters are so interesting that almost all of them could potentially warrant their own spinoff. That’s especially true in the case of Will Arnett’s Batman, who not only has decades of comic-book, film and television history to work with, but an entire sandbox of merchandise to go along with all of it — including an insane number of vehicles. You can see some of them in a new image from The LEGO Batman Movie, but we have to imagine that this photo barely scratches the surface.
