Default Pattinson/Reeves "The Batman" movie



Might be Jonah Hill as the Riddler:

Rumor has it that both Dick Grayson/Robin and Barbara Gordon/Batgirl are going to be introduced in this movie:

And if Jeffery Wright is indeed cast as Commissioner Gordon, that most likely means Barbara Gordon will be a POC.

Whatever this film is going to be, I don't think it's going to be uninteresting.

I'm a little bit curious if it's even supposed to inhabit the same universe as Wonder Woman and Aquaman.

They claim this is DCEU circa the 1990's, so to maintain continuity, Gordon needs to be a white dude as he was in JL. If they recast him as a POC. they might as well just not connect it, because it's not like these movies are gonna cross over properly, anyway, essentially being a period piece.

I'm highly skeptical it will be set in the 1990s. I just don't see the pros vs. cons to it.

I've seen somewhat credible theories that the reason for the WW 1984 delay is to retool it to somehow be a way to explain the DCEU out of the old DCEU and into the new DCEU. But I don't know.

^If it's 1990s and DCEU, that would mean they would have to admit that BvS/JL Bats has been operating for well over 20 years. That fits for Affleck's actual age, but would be against DC's seeming policy that everything (except Wonder Woman) has happened relatively recently.
