Thank Goodness Someone Actually Gave This A Second Thought
Just over a month ago I reported about the CW's plan to make a TV show called the Graysons and featuring Dick "DJ" Grayson before he became Robin. It just seemed like a bad idea. Sure it was just in the planning stages and who knows what could have come out of it. I just couldn't think of any way it wouldn't be horrible.
Seems I wasn't the only one to think that way. Part of the concern is that having a film franchise and TV franchise could hurt each other. You wouldn't think that'd be the case. There's speculation that this is why "Superman Returns" didn't do so well. What about the fact that Superman was portrayed as a deadbeat father trying to break the happy home Lois was about the create?
According to Variety:
"The studio has opted not to go forward with the development of 'The Graysons' at this time as the concept doesn't fit the current strategy for the Batman franchise," the studio said in a statement. "Warner Bros. Television is currently working on several replacement options for the CW."
I think we can all sleep soundly tonight knowing that we will not be seeing the likes of DJ Grayson trying to score with the girls.
