DC Comics Superman Animated Movies
When the next big screen appearance of the Dark Knight is rumored to see him coming to blows with the Man of Steel, it’s tempting to not look much farther into the future. But Warner Bros. has made it abundantly clear that is only the beginning – and now, we may have a few more details on where the movie universe, and Batman’s series in particular, could be heading.
The latest rumor surrounding is to be taken with a large grain of salt, but those wishing to avoid even the most uncertain of spoilers – for incredibly promising sequels and a brand new ‘villain’ in the DC Movie Universe – should proceed no farther. It may not be official, but potentially massive SPOILERS for the future, and yet another connection lie ahead.
One of the most talked-about changes potentially being made to Ben Affleck’s Batman character has centered on the possibility of a sidekick; actress Jena Malone has most recently been suggested as the Carrie Kelley version from Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns.” But before her casting, rumors had claimed that in the newest Batcave, the costume worn by Jason Todd – the second Robin – was kept in a glass case as a memorial. But when the script being pointed to for those tidbits was a fan creation saw many rumors instantly evaporate.
But there may have been fire to that smoke after all, as El Mayimbe has offered his latest scoop, claiming that there will, indeed, be a Jason Todd connection in Dawn of Justice. And the history behind the character (and the villain responsible for his death) won’t be contained to just one movie in DC’s shared universe:
Jason Todd’s uniform is in a display case inside the Batcave! In fact, The Joker & Harley Quinn are estranged in SUICIDE SQUAD because she feels guilt over the death of Todd. I’m also told that the RED HOOD is now a priority character for DC.
For the unfamiliar, it was Jason Todd (remembered as a tough, angry, orphan) who Batman took under his wing once Dick Grayson became Nightwing. Yet Jason would prove to be even more important in death than in life, when he was killed at the hands of the Joker in the 1988 “Death in the Family” comic storyline.
