Anyone watching the "only one Teen" Titans? Starfire is a Sista who loves to murderer people, Robin is an adult Detroit Detective, and beast seems to be an adult too. The only Teen is Raven.

I'm not buying a new streaming service. What am I? Made of time AND money? Stop being foolish. I'm still no on Disney Streaming.

But let me know how the Doom Patrol episode is. I'm mildly interested in that.

Streaming service? I thought it was on CW or something. I was stuck on a farm this weekend with just a Kodi box for TV.

'The Batman' Will Feature a "Rogues Gallery" of Villains


Director Matt Reeves tells The Hollywood Reporter he is focusing on the superhero's detective roots and plans on having him face off against multiple villains.

There are few movies as shrouded in as much mystery as writer-director Matt Reeves' The Batman. Among its many-unknowns: What villain will The Dark Knight be facing?

It turns out there will be multiple villains, Reeves reveals as part of a Creative Space interview with The Hollywood Reporter west coast TV editor Lesley Goldberg.

"You can't have Batman without a villain," Reeves tells THR. "There will be a rogues gallery."

Reeves' says the casting process will begin shortly, and while the Warner Bros./DC film has no official release date, he could see it landing in late spring or summer 2021.

Reeves is remaining mum when asked if The Batman will feature villains new to the big screen or baddies audiences have seen before, but when pressed he did react to Josh Gad's not-so-subtle Twitter teases that fans have interpreted as the actor lobbying to play the classic villain The Penguin.

"I love Josh Gad," Reeves says, noting that his son is in class with the actor's daughter. "We're good friends."

Batman has one of the more celebrated rogues galleries in comics, though most movies have featured just a few villains rather than a whole assortment of them. Adam West's 1966Batman movie featured Catwoman (Lee Meriwether), The Joker (Cesar Romero), the Penguin (Burgess Meredith) and The Riddler (Frank Gorshin) uniting against the superhero. The most recent example of a full-on rogues gallery hitting the big screen was Joel Shumacher's ill-fated Batman & Robin(1997), which featured Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger), Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) and Bane (Robert Swenson).

Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight ) grounded Batman in a more realistic world, with his films typically focusing on two chief villains, such as Ra's Al Ghul (Liam Neeson) and The Scarecrow (Cillian Murphy), while sprinkling in mob figures like Carmine Falcone (Tom Wilkinson) for flavor.

Judging from comic book lore, three options seem to present themselves for Reeves films: the villains are all teaming up, ala the 1966 movie; the villains are all working for a mysterious boss, such as in the 1990s storyline “Knightfall in which Bane freed all of the inmates of Arkham Asylum; or perhaps the villains are working totally separate from one another. After all, does Gotham's underworld really coordinate when they are going to commit crimes?

"We're starting to put together our battle plan," says Reeves of the process for casting his rogues gallery. "The studio has a definite shape in mind for when they see us doing it and I think it's aligning pretty well with what we're thinking too."

Reeves' film will depart from previous big-screen iterations of Batman by zeroing in on the notion that he's the world's greatest detective.

"It's very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale," says Reeves. "It's told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films."

Reeves joined The Batman in February 2017 after Ben Affleck exited as director, and in the intervening years there have been questions as to whether the actor would remain on as its star. Sources told THR in July 2017 that Affleck was unlikely to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman, which he has played in 2016'sBatman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017's Justice League, as well as in a cameo role in 2016's Suicide Squad. Affleck denied the report at the time.

Reeves is declining to comment on Affleck's status, but does have another interesting tidbit to share: while he's been calling the film The Batman, that is not written in stone. Affleckteased The Batman as the film's possible title in October 2016, when he was still attached as director, and Warner Bros. unveiled a The Batman logo at Comic-Con in 2017 during its Hall H presentation.

"I'm working with it as The Batman in my head and that's what we've always referred to it as," says Reeves. "But these things have taken a life of their own. As we go deeper into it, it may become clear, 'Oh, actually this might be a great spin on the title.' But as of now it's The Batman."

Reeves' Batman film comes at a time when Warner Bros. has been recalibrating its features to focus more on standalone projects rather than emphasizing a shared universe, ala Marvel Studios. The DC film universe sawAquaman become its first $1 billion grosserearlier this month, and has Shazam! out in April, The Joker opening in October, and Birds of Prey and Wonder Woman 1984 out in 2020. Each film is billed as having a different style with distinct filmmakers behind them.

"That is what they've been talking about, and that's the support that they have given me," says Reeves.

I really could care less about getting another Batman property at this point. I don't even want Batman Noir. Do someone else.

The problem with DC is that they have given exposure to most of their characters through all the TV shows. Who haven’t they done? Hawkman?

I would love a real Legion of Superheroes movie, but even after Aquaman I don’t think they’ve got the balls.

True, but there's a lot of people who don't watch those shows or would rather get the character in a 2 and a half hour spectacle rather than a 22 episode season. But we keep going back to Batman again and again. I'm up for resting him.

‘The Batman’ To Fly In Summer 2021; Ben Affleck Passes The Torch To Next Generation Of Bruce Wayne

EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros. is dating their next rendition of Batman for June 25, 2021. This is the one that Matt Reeves has been attached to as writer and director. Ben Affleck, we hear, will not be donning the Dark Knight’s tights after playing the Caped Crusader in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Justice League and that’s because this movie will focus on a younger Bruce Wayne.

Reeves boarded Batman in February 2017, taking over for Affleck who was originally set to direct off a script he wrote with DC’s Geoff Johns. Affleck, we understand has a busy plate: As Deadline exclusively broke he is starring in and producing the feature adaptation of Kate Alice Marshall‘s novel I Am Still Alive, which Universal won in a competitive bidding scenario. The two-time Oscar winner is also starring in the Warner Bros.’ Gavin O’Connor drama Torrance. Affleck worked hard on The Batmanstory, but knew he wasn’t the right one for this particular version. A search is underway for a new Dark Knight.

The Batman will not be based on Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One comic which is one of Reeves’ favorites in the Caped Crusader canon.

Thankfully it's finally official.
