Rumors of a Batman appearance in Suicide Squad have been around for a few months. Latino Review (via Instagram) believe they have additional information on how Batman will be used…potential (minor) spoilers…
The CW has had some success with TV versions of Green Arrow and the Flash on, well, Arrow and The Flash, also known as the shows my wife rolls her eyes at when I say I’m going to sit down and watch one. Now, this season Arrow introduced Ray Palmer, also known as the Atom, and while he so far is more of an Iron Man than a guy who can shrink, the guy’s gotten a lot of screentime and Brandon Routh has been a welcome and charismatic addition to the series. Given how The Flash began life as an Arrow spin-off, would it be safe to assume The Atom is next? Eh, not quite.
Instead, the CW is looking to do a superhero team show, and this leads me to wonder…will it be a version of the Justice League?
Say hello to Michelle Rodriguez. You know the super star from epic movies like Fast & The Furious, Resident Evil, and Avatar (and lest we not forget her run on the TV series LOST, quite possibly the best show EVAH!). In a recent article published by MoviePilot.Com, they explore DC’s tilt towards a current rumors that Ms. Rodriguez could play the new Green Lantern. Let’s break this down into smaller chunks.
I better get the mop because Watson’s head is about to explode. Take his favorite upcoming super hero movie (ok, second favorite, sorry Aquaman) and mash it with his favorite all time movie (The Dark Knight) and we get a rumored Batffleck cameo in Suicide Squad to set up an as yet announced Batman vs. Joker film.
I love that Batsoup and this potential film are taking cues from the exceptional Batman: The Dark Knight Returns graphic novels, but I do wonder about shooting themselves in the foot down the road with this aged and weary Batman.
