When Michael Keaton was rumored to be returning to the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne, it took the comic book world by storm. After all, Keaton was last seen as The Caped Crusader in 1992. Since then, theories had surfaced as to how his Batman incarnation would be depicted. Dark Knight Returns? The Bruce Wayne from Batman Beyond? De-aged via CGI?
Big Screen Leaks tweeted this photo from the set of The Flash. While it may not give us the answer as to how Batman will look, it does seem to imply that this will be an older Bruce Wayne and not one that is de-aged to look like his 1989 incarnation.
What do you think fans? Dark Knight Returns? Batman Beyond? Or just Old Man Bruce?
The Flash is scheduled for release on November 4 2022 and will star Ezra Miller as The Flash/Barry Allen, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, and Ron Livingston as Henry Allen. It is directed by Andy Muschietti.
It’s hard to believe that it was nearly 30 years ago when Batman: The Animated Series debuted on the Fox Network. It may be even harder to believe that it was only the second-ever Batman TV show. Now, 30 years and countless other shows later, ol’ Bats is headed back to the small screen in the form of Batman: Caped Crusader. Not only that, the show will be headed up by the impressive trio of JJ Abrams, Matt Reeves, and Bruce Timm.
She first gained national prominence in the FOX drama House as Dr. Cameron. She played The Chosen One, and The Dark One, Emma Swan in ABC’s Once Upon A Time. She’s even been Captain Kirk’s mother in 2009’s Star Trek reboot.
This summer, Jennifer Morrison will add another geek-cred role to her resume. She will provide the voice of Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, in the upcoming animated adaption of the famous Batman story Hush.
Based on the year-long comic story of the same name, Hush will also feature Jason O’Mara (Agents Of SHIELD) as Batman, Rainn Wilson (The Office) as Lex Luthor, and real life husband and wife Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn as Superman and Lois Lane respectively.
Hush was notable for being a fan favorite story written by Smallville co-creator Jeph Loeb, and drawn by comics legend Jim Lee. In it, the mysterious villain Hush sets into motion several actions to sabotage and destroy Batman from afar. It also featured the first “In Continuity” fight between Batman and Superman.
No exact date has been officially released, but previews have been leaked to the internet. Check one out below.
Batman: Hush will be produced by Warner Bros. animation, and will have a PG-13 rating.
For 35 years, fans have enjoyed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles adventures in various incarnations. In 2015, the heroes in a half shell crossed paths with The Dark Knight himself, Batman, in a limited series by DC Comics and IDW.
Now that story has been adapted for an animated release entitled Batman vs. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which hits shelves at the end of the month. Check out the trailer below.
While the art in the comic book version seems to pay homage to the original Eastman & Laird artwork, the movie looks more like the Batman: Brave And The Bold format. The cast consists of Troy Baker taking on the roles of both Batman and The Joker (a first for the same release), Tara Strong as Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, John DiMaggio (Futurama) as Mr. Freeze, Darren Criss (Glee) as Raphael, Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live) as Michelangelo, and Tom Kenny (SpongeBob Squarepants) as The Penguin.

1943 – The world was at war. Just a short four years after Batman’s comic debut this 15 part theatrical serial started its airing in local theaters.
Unlike modern Batman stories, this serial involved dealing with seedy organized crime, not supervillains. That said it is a well thought out crime investigation story that holds up despite its limitations.
More rumors coming out about the Batman, with the latest being that Ben Affleck may bow out of the role. Collider reports in the video below about the rumor, stating he’s heard from multiple sources that Affleck’s time as The Dark Knight may already be over.
Ben Affleck, make no mistake, he wants out. He doesn’t want to be Batman anymore.
