    Robin is Batman's junior partner, but he shouldn't be a child in a film version. I also don't think there should be any real plans to have more than one Robin.

    Matt Reeves' version of Batman is...

    Yes definitely. Always in favor of incorporating the "Everything Happened Everything Counts" approach to canon/continuity.

    I think Rachel Dawes should be added into the "Year One"-verse as well.

    Finally read the first two issues. They were okay.

    I agree it was a bit of a letdown. Focusing on Lex out of the gate feels like a mistake; this didn't really feel like a Batman story. The ways...

    I think for me it's very story and execution dependent. It's ambiguous in general so it can go either way, whether a writer wants to have a Joker that knows or doesn't know. There are some examples...

    Yeah, the "Arkham Knight" vibe is just in that it's the only other take that places Jason's "lost years" as a private military operator. We don't know that's the case here, it's just a guess based on...

    Did he confirm it was a mix up? Murphy seems to have a good handle on trivia, even if there's clearly a big influence from outside-comics media. There's a lot of references to Batman '89 obviously...

    I agree with you -- I hope that Murphy avoids doing the Frank Miller thing of introducing Superman and Wonder Woman and everyone. So far it's been entirely contained to the Gotham / Bat-verse, which...

    Yes, exactly. He's saying he wants someone there who can make sure Bruce won't escape, because he can of course escape anything. So they bring in Jason Todd, by Bruce's request.

    Bruce found out...

    No, I don't think so. He feels like a bad fanfic character.

    Have you ever read the Knightfall novel by Dennis O'Neil? It's pretty interesting in the way it diverges slightly from the comics throughout, especially in my mind is the different version of Shiva...

    There's some fun ones in there, like the Batgirl team-up in Brave and the Bold or maybe it was Bat Family. Another story I recall vaguely was Dick Grayson playing both sides of a student protest... I...

    Curse of the White Knight finale

    I am enjoying the Murphy-verse for the crazy, twisty turny, thoughtful, playful and reference-filled thrill that it is, and I'm excited for the third series.

    What did you think?

    edit: Spoilers...

    It'll be exciting to finally have stories with that Nightwing design without the mullet. His design & character were all on point in the fairly recent Batman & Harley Quinn movie too.

  15. How would Batman handle Coronoavirus in Gotham?

    It occurred to me while reading the news that Batman's armor & usual modus operandi would be particularly useless against a viral pandemic. His face is exposed! Doesn't matter if you've got the BvS...

    The shape of the fins kinda reminds me of the Knightfall-era batmobile, except just black and not blue and yellow.

    Yeah it's not great when an entire story can be removed from a run like this, where everything is contributing to the "one big story", and having it not really matter.

    I know it was editorial and...

    Huh. Good point on the Hush comparison (and come to think of it, Bane's master plan does seem like it could make just as much sense coming from Tommy Elliott). I agree on preferring King's work to...

    Well said.

    I personally think the IAS letters are the apex of this particular form of King-ism — whenever the narration V.O. is displaced in time from the actions depicted, as a letter or...

    It's really frustrating.

    EVERY Batman film is PG-13 or below. Both the Harley Quinn animated show and the BOP film both being R / TV-MA is... bizarre. I'm fine with "Joker" for R; that makes...

    One of the reasons I'm excited for Bat/Cat, and love the pre-50 stretch of the run, is how well King writes a long-term relationship. It's a breath of fresh air when it's done well because usually...

    This afternoon when most of comics twitter was talking about DiDio's firing, Devin Grayson tweeted a gif of Nightwing (from YJ) looking up and smiling.
