- Batman has canon contingency plans that have been shown to be able to netrualize Clark. Contingency plans that were not executed by Batman himself but by an organization much larger than just Batman.

- Therefore, it's possible for him to win and that's yet to be proven in canon.

Fixed! :P

- It's a fact sir, it's been done twice. Hush, and JLA:TOB.

- His plan worked in both instances, and that is a win for him.

I know that sounds like a phenomenally loaded or trollish question, but I assure you it's genuine. As a person who has never been a comic reader until very recently, I've never taken an interest in the guy. He always seemed gratuitously overpowered with a weakness that seemed to call for a lot of déja vu if villains were ever going to stand a chance. I recognize, of course, that that's a very naive and ignorant understanding of him, but it's the one I spent most of my life having without thinking about it too much.

So what attracts you to Superman? What makes you care about Clark Kent? What would make someone like me "get it" the fastest?

...I really hope I don't regret starting this thread, haha.

- I'd say that it's because they probably hate Batman.

Accordong to people on CBR has a Mom now. And she is none other than the Amzing Lois Lane. The "you are the mom" momment will be shown in Superboy 19. Now what does this mean for Superman and Wonder Woman?

- I'll just take their word with a grain of salt.

I read about this on Bleeding Cool.

It doesn't mean anything to Superman & Wonder Woman . . . And I cannot for the life of me understand why DC dismantled all of the Teen Titan characters from their roots!?!

Wonder Girl - nothing to do with Wonder Woman

Red Robin - Never Robin

Kid Flash - nothing to do with the Flash

now Superboy - Lex Luthor is not the other ½ WHY!?! This was the hook for the character!!!!!!

I could really strangle someone. I don't understand why this was important for DC to do? Is it because it doesn't fit into the whole "5 years ago" timeline that they so ineptly fashioned into this continuity? It's the 5 years ago BS that doesn't work, not the relationships that these characters were built on.

- Red Robin was still an integral part of the Batman Family and is still widely regarded as a former Robin even if his name had "Red" in front of it.

- Bart will be teaming up with Barry shortly in an upcoming issue of either TT or The Flash.

- Since when was superboy's other half not Lex Luthor? I haven't seen anything in the book which clarified where is other half was from, and lex sure seemed to be familiar with Superboy.


- Lois Lane? Really?

- With that being said, i don't really care for some guy's opinion and i'll probably listen to it later, when it's not 5:29 AM.

- I personally don't care much for cartoons as they are usually unfaithful to the comics.

- However, i liked the show along with Batman TAS before i started reading comics and became aware of the ignorance they feed to children.

- I'd say it's a good show if you don't care about continuity. I just can't deal with the ignorance and the unfaithfulness.

I'm surprised Comicvine hasn't put up anything about the news that the next Batman movie may not come out till 2019 now as WB wants to get a Superman trilogy done first but as I read about this I also wondered if the next Batman film (which is being called a reboot but I hope does not mean an origin story) should bring Dick Grayson back to the silver screen.

I get why Nolan didn't use him or any other Robin in his trilogy. It was too dark and Nolan went for too much of a "Batman in the real-world" to also include a 10 year old kicking the crap of adults and superpowered opponents. He was correct in that call given the nature of his trilogy.

But if WB/DC can finally achieve the correct balance of real-world feel with comic book staples (as I think Marvel has done up to this point) with Man of Steel and continue that into its future products than I think this opens the ability to bring Dick Grayson into the next Batman film franchise.

However, I think three big things would need to happen to ensure the character is done correctly. One, don't show the death of his family or make their death a part of the next film. Just like the next film should not include Batman's origins or the start of his career (particularly if Justice League comes out first as the Batman movie proceeding it should simply continue the established movie timeline rather than be a prequel) we also don't need to see Dick's origins outside of a few comments or a quick flashback. He should already be in the manor, already know Bruce's identity, and already be helping him by running the computers in the Batcave to relay information and analysis.Two, he should not be Robin in the next film but he should be receiving training from Bruce. This would highlight a key point about Bruce and Dick's relationship that is continuously mentioned in the comics but not in other media forms.....Bruce didn't want Dick to become a crime-fighter when he took him in. He trained him in order to give him an outlet for his anger and pain rather than dwell on it as Bruce did. The film should emphasize this by also making a point that Dick is Bruce's apprentice/protege at Wayne Enterprises. He's at meetings, he's putting together documents, he's gaining a skill to become his own person rather than Bruce's sidekick or replacement as Batman. That leads me into point 3; Dick should be about no younger than 17 and no older than 20 in the first film. Though that's re-treading on what some complained about when Chris O'Donnell was cast as Dick, even with more comic book staples thrown into a new Batman film I still think Nolan had a point about not using a kid to be Batman's sidekick. Having him a little older would highlight the fact he's been with Bruce and Alfred for at least a few years (either immediately at the start of Bruce's career or even just before his official debut as Batman) and is at a stage of his life where the film could have some nice tension between Bruce and Dick about Bruce's idea for his future in business and going his own way and Dick's inclination to aid Bruce in his war on crime, foreshadowing his later roles in follow-on films.

With these three points in place it wouldn't be till at least the second Batman film that Dick would actually become Robin. Which leads me into a second question and my last thought. Should a new Robin follow the traditional design of the comics, not the bare legs and pixie boots I'm talking the bright red, yellow, and green with a cape and domino mask? In my opinion I would say no, the costume should be changed a bit more than just covering more of the body. It should echo Dick's background and style of fighting even more than the comics did. To that effect it could be a good idea to lose the cape and give the new film Robin a look more in-line with his Nightwing look but in the traditional red, yellow, and green color scheme (and obviously symbol) of Robin. This would highlight that at his core Dick is an acrobat and thus would not want the cape to interfere with his movements, which is why he never worn one as Nightwing. As this new version would make him older than the comics at the start of his career, it would make sense his Robin appearance would be more a reflection of himself than a copy of Bruce's Batsuit. My second recommendation would be the new look include a full cowl, similar to the Red Robin look, but that may be stretching it a bit too much from the source material.

On a side note: If the new Batman films were successful enough to progress Dick into Nightwing (maybe with his own film) and bring in Tim Drake as the new Robin I do think Tim's suit should include a cape because he's far more like Bruce in habit and style than Dick is.

But what do you all think? Should the next Batman film include Dick Grayson? Would it be better to introduce him in a second or third film (in which case I would not make him Robin in the same film he's introduced in order to emphasis his training period)?

- A new Batman movie coming out in 2019? Jesus Christ, will Nolan be directing this drivel as well?

- I've personally had enough horrible Batman movies, and i don't think any more atrocious attempts should be made as i've seen enough unfaithful, non canon, illogical and idiotic drivel to last a lifetime.

- I don't care what Nolan's opinion is, i'm not buying tickets to see his drivel, or anyone elses for that matter.

- The only comic book Superhero movie that i'll go watch would be the Flash to see how badly they would butcher that.

- With that being said, i'm wondering how much of a failure the Justice League movie will be as well.

- That's just Morrison's writing in my mind. I usually take his writing with a grain of salt.


- I highly doubt that what Tim is going through has anything to do with the joker. It's most likely Raven being that her and her father were in two subsequent issues.


- She's going through some things with James Jr. and apparently she pushes him off a roof in one of the upcoming issues. It should be interesting. I personally don't care for her as part of the family at all.



- I highly dislike Scott Snyder's Bruce for multiple reasons and i don't really care for Snyder's drivel.

- Moreover, Bruce is written differently in various books and it's almost a joke.


- I'm sure Damian will be back soon. An Al Ghul staying dead ,especially when his mother didn't mean to kill him and he's Ra's' vessel, doesn't make any logical sense to me at all. Additionally, if Jason and Shiva and company could use the pits, i don't see why Damian wouldn't be able to. I have to say that Bruce is an idiot in many ways as well.


- Having yet another temper tantrum feud with Bruce, surprise surprise. I mean, am i really supposed to care Richard? I understand that Damian was your brother, but you're a complete ass.

- I know see that you got the nickname "Dick" for a reason and that seems to be because you are a complete Dick. Additionally, you seem to be aware of this fact yourself.

- Overall, the family is fine besides Damian missing. Batgirl is stuck up as usual and is dealing with some nonsense, Richard and Bruce are having yet another feud, Tim couldn't care less, and Jason is apparently fine.

- I feel as though the family is as close as it ever was with the exception of Damian being dead.

- Talia.

- I'd have to say that Talia is my type of woman, and is better than Selena in nearly every conceivable way.

- Selena is a slut among other things as far as i'm concerned.

- I personally hate the character in general and the only thing i find mildly interesting in her book is her cleavage or the sexual remarks.

@thejman250: He was answering your question. If you didnt want an answer to your question then say you dont want one. Goodbye.

- Didn't i ask you to stop quoting me with your alternate accounts and your ignorant drivel?

- If you don't want people to know its you, you should have the brain capacity to make accounts more discreetly, but i digress.

- Again, stop quoting me with your ignorant idiotic drivel and your alternate accounts.

- If there's a rule against harassment, I'm sure you're breaking it. What part of leave me the hell alone do you not understand you idiot?
