The DC Comics TV & Movie Thread - A Thread for Talking about Detective Comics Comics Television Shows and Movies

When you desperately want to make Gossip Girl but Warner Brothers tells you batman has to be involved but also batman can NEVER BE ONSCREEN.

One day I am going to write the 400 Page takedown of Batwoman that show deserves.

And the supplementary 300 Page essay on why someone might have made the right call when they said "Sure you can make a batman show as LONG AS THERE'S NO BATMAN" because the very SOUL of Television is attractive people acting sassy and wondering if they're ever gonna fuck eachother, which is definitely not quietly examining clues in a shadowy alley or silently dashing between rafters while a crime boss who thinks he's gonna be a big shot has a mental breakdown while holding a tommy gun.

Too bad Bruce didn't already have a son, adopted or otherwise, who could have been the central pillar of this show.

It's not like they couldn't have both done Batman minus Batman with sexy young people, but still use more recognizable characters. Using an OC plus franchise deep cuts comes off like somebody higher up wanted the show's audience, Batman fans and non fans alike, to be alienated out the gate.

Literally nothing from the comics Matters. You can totally name the PARTYBOI WHO'S DAD DIES "Damian Thomas Wayne" and make the exact same show.

Unless.

Unless, of course, what you REALLY want to do is introduce Damian Thomas Wayne in the FINAL SHOT of season one, setting up a half-season's worth of "I'M THE REAL HEIR TO THE WAYNE FORTUNE/BATMAN" dicking around.

Which is absolutely what they're hoping to do.

Literally the most CW you could possibly make.

Also a convenient option if Kid Wayne is injured while filming the first season and has to be replaced. Everybody wins!

What a waste of time. We all know who's the real Wayne heir.

I get the feeling this is all the old school DC-AVOID-BRAND-CONFUSION-AT-ALL-COSTS-mentality coming back, which is a shame. Batman is Batman again in the movies. There's a Batgirl movie on the horizon so we can't have Babs or Jim Gordon (thus why Two-Face is weirdly playing the role of policeman in this trailer). There's already the Titans show prominently featuring Dick, Jason, and Tim. So naturally if we make a batfam TV show it's gotta include... *checks notes* Harper Row and Joker's Daughter? woof.

It's funny you mention this because one of the major casting roles they announced that I didn't include was for a character named "Brody". The actor's background is described as "Born in Melbourne, to first generation Australian-Pakistani/Maltese parents." And it just so happens that there was an issue of Detective Comics that had Damian go by the alias of Brody...

Also a convenient option if Kid Wayne is injured while filming the first season and has to be replaced. Everybody wins!
Both hilarious and also horrifying at the same time for the fact that you're probably not far off base. Ruby Rose seriously almost died because CW jank projects are so haphazard and negligent.

I saw someone on Twitter say that every single shot looked like something the rock demanded be in the movie, and I agree

I am so excited to be annoyed that other people aren't excited to see JSA dorks on the big screen. That's Atom Smasher. He grows big and sometimes has a mohawk/even dumber name. It's Dr. Fate: he wears a gold helmet and does magic and no one has ever cared about him in any way. He's the best.

Seems like they want to play up the Antihero and "mainstream superhero teams = western imperialism" themes from his 52 appearance.

...I cared about Dr. Fate.

I am very much looking forward to the JSA Movie (featuring Black Adam)!

Though of course what I'm really looking forward to is when there is a movie named "The Monster Society of Evil".

To be clear, I genuinely love all (well, most) of the JSA. I legitimately want to see Pierce Brosnan play an old wizard with an older wizard telling him what to do via a magic helmet.

Also, is that Mr. Terrific jumping out of the plane at about the 50 second mark of the trailer? Because I want to believe it is, and if it is he better have "Fair Play" written on the sleeves of his jacket.
 
What they're doing with Dr Fate in this season of Young Justice is really cool. Specifically they're Exploring Nabu's roots as a son of Vandal Savage, and Zatanna convincing Nabu to allow Dr Fate's helm to be cycled among like 4-5 people on a regular basis so that he doesn't completely destroy his host's life.
 
Anyone waiting to poopsock all of Season 4 of Young Justice until it was over can now do so. Please do, it’s quite good.

Young Justice is such an incredible show. It’s spectacular that we get to see such a thorough exploration of the DC Universe in an Earth where its sidekicks were allowed to grow up and take their rightful places along side the rest of the Justice League as equals.

The stinger at the end of this last episode cut hard. Evil Mary Marvel and Supergirl is some wild shit to get to explore. Can’t wait for this show to come back.

HBO Max is pretty good at staggering those releases just so to keep me subscribed, jerks. Harley Quinn is back at the end of July.
