    I'm just gonna keep I head cannon he's just died off screen this is because I have trouble believing so much of his rogues gallery are already around and alive considering Batman in this universe is willing to kill.

    Which, given the propensity for movie plans to end with characters being killed off on Arrow, is probably a good thing :sweat:.

    I think we're just supposed to assume he used to not kill people, and losing Robin and his age made him more willing to break his code, but that was after most of the Squad have been locked up :ack:.

    They never actually established that as a reason for his change or if he was unwilling to kill to begin with they could have at least had Alfred point out how violent he's acting.

    Well, I'll just chalk that up to one of the many story flaws of Batman v. Superman :p.

    Yeah and that's a major problem though that affects the greater DC Cinematic universe: since a lot of villains we'll see going forward will be Batman foes (heck we're seeing some already for Suicide Squad) but why would a Batman who doesn't have a code about killing his opponents allow such dangerous rogues to be alive? I guess you could say he had that line and lost but it... it's pretty obvious he still doesn't have it with how he killed all those thugs to save Martha Kent and what not so how to deal with that going forward? Then again even with Kevin Fiege overseeing the MCU there have been slip ups of continuity: I think it was only explained in the Dark World how in the original Thor the Asgardian hero destroyed the rainbow bridge yet still returned in The Avengers, and then Civil War had to explain why despite giving up his armor in Iron Man 3, Tony still had suits in Age of Ultron. Though I can blame that on Joss Whedon not caring as much about previous plot points as other writers who obviously care more now so hope there is some caring about that going on in DC despite not as much overall oversight.

    SUPERGIRL Season 1 - August 9
    GOTHAM Season 2 - August 16
    DC's LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Season 1 - August 23
    ARROW Season 4 - August 30
    THE FLASH Season 2 - September 6

    6/3: More rumored release dates with no movie attached: October 2nd, 2020, April 16th, 2021, July 2nd, 2021, and November 5th, 2021.

    I imagine some of those might be reserved for possible sequels, but I imagine they'd want the Batfleck solo a little earlier then 2020, though we'll see...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure the DCEU schedule (so far) stopped at 2020 for the Green Lantern Corps. movie :).

    I'm left wondering how exactly this changes his role since he still seems to be the Chief Creative Officer....is he still involved in basically everything, as he was before, but now has more power and influence o_O?

    It just sounds like he gets one more title and has to do way more things. Nelson is still the big boss.

    It time for WB to remove Zack Synder from the DCEU A.S.A.P he damaging the brand just with his name on it. WB can't take another hit with Wonder Woman & Justice League next year.
