cyberghostface: (Two-Face)

Like many people, I think Batman: The Animated Series is the definitive take on the Batman mythos. The show's version of Two-Face in particular is without a doubt the best adaptation of the character as well. This story 'Fifty-Fifty' is a great one in my opinion and is worth reading for the scene involving Two-Face and a phone booth alone.

An example of the clinically realistic way superhero comics depict the onset of mental illness.

We're all familiar with the long-discredited Golden Age trope in which exposure to radioactive elements gives people beneficial super-powers. But even then, there were comic-book characters who weren't so lucky when exposed to radiation, voluntarily or otherwise. In the "voluntarily" category, for example, we have Professor Henry Ross, who just wanted to invent a cure for death.

Tjhe announcement came through ScreenRant and within less than 12 hours, clarification has had to be made by the creator.

Which given recent Marvel related events is perhaps understandable, when the title of the series is

"Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment today announced that executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are teaming up for the all-new live-action drama series Titans, which will debut in 2018. Additionally, Warner Bros. Animation’s Young Justice: Outsiders the highly anticipated third season of the popular Young Justice series, is also ramping up for its first mission next year."

Young Justice: Outsiders
"In Young Justice: Outsiders, the teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in an animated world of super-powers, Super-Villains and super secrets. In the highly anticipated new season, the team faces its greatest challenge yet as it takes on meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy."

It will be paired with the new live-action Titans series!

"Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.

Titans will be written by Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery, Underground), Geoff Johns (President & Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment; The Flash, Arrow) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl). Goldsman, Johns, Berlanti and Sarah Schechter (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl) are executive producers of the series from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television."

So we've had

Batman '66
Batman '66 and The Green Hornet
Batman '66 and The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Batman '66 and Steed and Mrs Peel
Batman '66 and Wonder Woman '77

And they've all been pretty good

So what could possibly come next?

Superman 55? (or indeed Superman 78?)

Nope!

And I can pretty much promise it's NOT who you're thinking of... )

It's officially the first day of spring (or so my Google Doodle tells me) and that means it's officially the borthday of one Richard Grayson.

So that means, and also since it's a cold, wet Monday and could use some cheering up, it's time to post a few pieces of fanart of young Mr Grayson (though he is, of course, now technically in his late 70's)

This is an Elseworlds storyline that combines Batman with the films Nosferatu and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. It's a sequel to a comic called 'Superman: Metropolis' which combined Superman with (not surprisingly) Metropolis; I'm a fan of Bats, Nosferatu and Caligari, less so Supes and Metropolis so I'm just going to share this one.

Now, as we sort of know, there are few people Damian actually likes. He respects a couple, loathes several and disdains nearly everyone else on the planet. But people he actually LIKES, we're probably limited to Colin (who seems to been lost in the New52) and of course, his big brother and favourite partner in crimefighting, Nightwing.

So what could possibly increase tensions between them?

Perhaps the only thing that Damian is ALWAYS concerned about

Entertainment Weekly confirm that the director of the hugely enjoyable LEGO Batman movie Chris McKay is being tipped to produce a live action Nightwing movie!!

He's more of an animation director so far, his track record including Robot Chicken, Moral Orel and Titan Maximum but based on LEGO Batman you can't deny he's prepared to have some FUN with the concept of costumed superheroes (which the DCCU is so sadly lacking, thought their TV shows seem to have gotten the hint).

Bill Dubuque (The Accountant) is set to write the script.

And as a bit of a teaser... perhaps! ;) )
