    I do put stock into the idea that we're going to see a lot of Bat-villains in this movie :cool:.

    For someone who is arguably more of a Teen Titans villain than a member of Batman's rogues' gallery, Deathstroke is becoming even more overused than the Joker.

    I rather a group of C-List villains band together to fighter the Dark Knight.
    Signal Man, Spook, Black Spider, Calendar Man, Cat-Man, Prof Milo, and a couple of others.

    Josh Gad keeps teasing he might be the Penguin.

    I think in that BvS tour guide book they confirmed the Iceberg Lounge?

    Campaigning is more like it. I can't really see him as Cobblepot, unless we're going back to Meredith-esque version.

    I think I remember us talking about that, along with the mention of Mari/Vixen :).

    I feel like this is the second or third time that's happened...though I also feel like this happens with DCEU films a lot :sweat:.

    Wonder if Deathstroke is gone. I think if he's in JL, they might keep him.

    7/13: Oh they'll play musical chairs again with the dates, imo.

    7/21: Mark Bomback may be co-writing the Batman script.

    7/28: As some of us expected, the future of Deathstroke in the movie seems nebulous.

    Reeves claims that WB may not plan for The Batman to be part of the DCEU:

    Hmmm, those Affleck rumors are starting to make a whole lotta sense now.

    Reeves' meaning isn't entirely clear. The Batman might be a stand-alone film in the sense that it has no direct connection to the story of the Justice League movie(s), but it might still be set within the DCEU. That makes more sense in the context of Affleck's involvement.

    Yeah, we are well aware what franchise connectivity is like. However, it could easily end up that through the Flashpoint this is a complete reboot. It could simply be that, yes this will not feature any connection to the other films. So what of Wonder Woman? Will they fail to mention Superman? Lotta questions.
