    This is giving me Young Justice flashbacks :p.

    So not only do Batman and Superman's moms have the same name, but their origins happen within one year of each other.

    So Bruce first became Batman when he was 25. I wonder how old he was when he first took on Robin?

    Based on Harley's age and other things, we can kind of suppose it but probably nothing concrete until the Nightwing movie. Mid 1990s to 2005 at the latest maybe? Would put Dick in his 20s-30s in the present. I can't remember if those ARGUS files said Harley helped Joker killing Robin/Jason around 2010-2011?

    That comes pretty close to Frank Miller's Batman: Year One, where Bruce returns to Gotham City at twenty-five years old and has turned twenty-six when he becomes Batman.

    This Bruce must have been about ten years old when his parents were murdered.

    Well, it's good to know that, no matter what, he'll hopefully at least get one more shot as the Man of Steel in the future :).

    Though I have my doubts it'll be in a solo movie :sweat:.

    That good to hear that Henry Cavill will play Superman again in the DCEU.

    That makes sense given the Post-Credits scene for Justice League.

    I'm guessing Aquaman's, if it has one, will see Manta being recruited.

    Wonder Woman 2 will probably have either Circe or Cheetah.

    There really aren't that many more options given the state of the DCEU is in such flux right now and we don't have that many confirmed movies heading into production now. I guess Black Adam could be a contender depending on which film he makes his debut in...

    Well, there's still Joker and Deathstroke. No way of really knowing. We have a planned JLDark, but what happens with that?

    If the rumor is true that they'll be focusing on solo films, I don't think JLD will happen anytime soon.

    Anyway, if we get Man of Steel 2, Metallo could make for a good member for the Legion of Doom.

    In a surprise turn, Robbie revealed she's been working on a Harley spinoff for the past 2 years - separate from the Harley/Joker movie, Suicide Squad 2, and Gotham City Sirens. She did also say she wants Harley to be with her girls and form a girl gang.

    That sounds like a heck of a lot of Harley movies :p.

    Well Harley Quinn honestly is one of the most well known and markettable characters right now in terms of comics and general media so like Deadpool it would make sense from a marketting stand point to have a lot of her pop up. Of course being spread over the course of at least 4 movies and not knowing how those fit into one another does seem like massive over promotion. Especially since let's face it, Suicide Squad though having decent moments for the character was NOT a good way to introduce her to the general movie going audience. Seriously someone should of slapped down the team who wanted to do their own DC take on Guardians of the Galaxy and scale it to be about Deadshot and Harley Quinn and have the focus on those characters so we could have an actual Harley Quinn origin longer then... a minute if that and really get to the core of the character. I guess it's possible one of these other movies could do that but... that's something you should really start off with before branching it down into a million different places.

    So, Berg will be replaced. That could work. Lately he's been good at vague answers or just doding questions during press interviews. Less Johns and make him more 'advisory in nature'. And Toby Emmerich is considering 'more fully integrating DC film operations into the larger studio.' Big Hmms.

    I think the DCEU could definitely stand from some re-structuring or new creative voices.

    Ya know, I have to be honest. For my money, Snyder has been hit-or-miss. The only thing that puzzled me recently is has his work been meddled with by executives. Then again, in some interviews I've read of his, he has a very strange outlook on some characters.

    Having said that now, I'll give you my quick takes on his comicbook films:

    300- I loved it! It put him on the map for me. I was in college, I sought out the Miller graphic novel, and thought the film was pretty awesome.

    Watchmen- I had read Watchmen well before the film came out. I got the book because I heard it influenced so much. I saw the film, and was actually impressed with facets of it, but it was probably too much like the comic in parts. Also, it altered and spoiled things and just ruined things for me and for audiences who had not read the book.

    Man of Steel- As someone who grew up on Reeves Superman, this was weird to me. I felt they were deliberately trying to update something iconic, in a hip new way. However, totally missed the point of who Superman is. After a 10 year stint on television, they wanted something fresh. Now, as a stand alone it worked for me.

    Batman v Superman- A huge mess. Great trailer though.

    Justice League- Not so much a mess. However, still a whole of issues.
