    A mix between Burton and Nolan, fine, but I don't want anything from the '60s comedy show. I loved the program as a kid and still watch it every now and then on H&I, but it wasn't the Batman seen in the comics before or after the show's run. BTW, the producers hated comics, though I can forgive all of this for Julie Newmar, Yvonne Craig, and, my favorite, Joan Collins as the Siren.

    I think it depends what you take from the 60's show. Like, Catwoman letting out a sultry pur or a gag, or a Chief O'Hara cameo of all things probably wouldn't be too out-of-place.

    If it weren't done in a campy way, Frontier, I would be okay with that.

    I mean, even the most bone-dead serious Riddlers have said "Riddle Me This, Batman," so I think it's all in the execution.

    I agree, but regardless of the execution, no shark repellent bat spray.!

But the more information that comes out, the more it sounds like his Batman movie is going to be like every other Batman movie.
    I am still hoping for almost no villians from the comics, at least not in the main role.

    I would kill for just a really solid modern noir film with Batman in it. There's so many real world nightmarish crimes that Batman can go up against.

    Even just for that moment of awe where all hope seems lost, and the Batmobile comes roaring out of the shadows.

    New Gods- I'm a bit worried about this project. They brought in Tom King which kinda signals that they're going for an intimate character driven approach. I still kind of don't expect it to be greenlighted but if it does they should rename it Barda and Mister Miracle. If they keep the New Gods name fans will be expecting a grand epic retelling of Jack Kirby's New Gods and not a modest budget character movie which they are signaling with the hiring of Tom King.

    The Flash- Doesn't seem like it's going to happen. Warner Bros CEO hints that big announcements will be made next year at the San Diego comic con.

    The New Gods story is far too epic to be told in one movie. I think it’s great that they plan to focus just on Scott and Barda in the first film. It’s a good way to introduce the mythology with The Pact as the background.

I guess, I let my imagination run away with me and hoped I would get the sort of Batman movie I've always imagined, where there wasn't this distraction of bright, glitzy escapees from a lunatic asylum.

    Maybe Reeves never was saying what I thought he was. But giving the audience costumed crooks changes their expectations from the picture. They won't be in the proper frame of mind to follow a yarn that's all about the Batman searching for clues and investigating a complicated plot. They'll be waiting for the next shiney thing to pop up on screen. It's like giving kids a bag full of candies to munch on and then expecting them to settle down and listen to a bedtime story about Henry Huggins.
    It can still be something like what you mention in your first paragraph, established comic book villains doesn't have to look or act like they would in the 60's show or Schumacher's films. Think about something like Azzarello's and Bermejo's Broken City, which features faithful adaptations of Killer Croc, The Penguin, Joker and The Ventriloquist while still being a gritty and grounded detective story.

    Having recently watched DuVernay's Netflix series When They See Us, it wouldn't surprise me at all if she and King tries to go for something big and sprawling rather than tightly focus on one or two characters.
    As of now:
    All-Star Batman, Batman, Doom Patrol, The Flash, The Fix, The Flintstones, Green Valley, Hadrian's Wall, The Hellblazer, Moonshine, New Super-Man, Suicide Squad, Superman, 'Tec, Unfollow

    I kinda hope that the villains and Batman still come off a little more larger-then-life then they did in Joker. I think it would be an interesting contrast with the grounded detective/crime stuff.

    All this sounds nice, if a little too good to be true...

    I've actually shared these just because they sounded nice rumors. No idea of the reliability of the site. Looking at the past articles, it seems hit and miss.

    EDIT: Just checked, rumors debunked pretty fast. More miss than hit then.

    That Young Justice/Teen Titans one can easily happen. Nightwing, Batgirl, Supergirl and Blue Beetle all have films in development and you can easily introduce Kaldur and Cassie/Donna in an Aquaman/Wonder Woman sequel.
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    I’ll believe it when I see it but I really hope these rumors are true. I loved Cavill in the role but if rebooting the franchise gets us a new Superman movie I’m there. I just don’t want them to give up on the character that started it all.

    If they’re smart they will lock down James Gunn with a huge contract.
