So Rich the Leech says he's gonna be posting a shit ton of Rebirth rumours throughout the day.

Please keep your whining about BC for another thread, this thread is for fun rumouring and related shitposting.

So far:

>I understand that as part of the rename/relaunch happening across the DC Comics line this summer, we well see a new Titans superhero team comic, dropping the Teen prefix, and spinning out of Titans Hunt.

>That current Titans Hunt book has seen a number of the original Teen Titans return, remembering each other and a time that was seemingly wiped from existence by the New 52 relaunch.

>Batman is one of the comics that will going bi-weekly at DC Comics, after the big relaunch, this summer.

>Look for its writer for the last five years, Scott Snyder to change his plans as a result, to leave the title that made him an A-List comic book superstar and start writing – the secondary Batman title at the publisher – Detective Comics.

>Detective Comics will remain a monthly title. The decision to switch books is more likely to be remove Snyder from the event driven nature of some modern comics and of the pressure of writing the lead Batbook, and DC’s bestselling title. He will be more able to do as he pleases with he character.

>Here’s the bigger question though; with Scott Snyder on board, will Detective Comics start to outsell Batman?

>And year after year, it hasn’t come close to being put on the DC Comics schedules, making us look a little like chumps.

>Well, I have been told that, as part of the DC Comic Rebirth relaunch project, that Marc Silvestri’s Batman will be one of the comics that will finally be scheduled. Possibly even for 2016!

And of course, the classic

>I have been told to be careful about what I report regarding certain people being attached to certain projects. In that I understand that, just as with the New 52, some people are writing for an upcoming new comic book unaware that what they re doing is actually pitching for that comic – and competing with others for that gig. One person who I was guaranteed by some to definitely be working on a high profile book is not, I’m told, actually locked down on it yet and has competition. So I am treading carefully…

I don't understand why he says "us" when it's just Rich who says any of this shit.
>>
>>79512088
>So I am treading carefully…
No you're trying to create an excuse for the fact that you're pulling all this shit outta your ass.

Jesus, didn't Rich show up here the day of the Rebirth announcement and express regret at being a sensationalist that's eventually proven wrong? And now he's doubling down on a full day of this stuff?
>>
Am I in the minority saying that I like Detective/Action comics name better than the main titles? Too bad they couldn't keep the numbering.
>>
>>79512164
Just because he regrets it doesn't change the fact that that's the only reason BC exists at this point. If he stopped doing that then he'd lose all ad revenue. A clickbait site doesn't just go "we're going to stop making clickbait" and expect to maintain their userbase.

I mean, the only thing BC has going for them beyond Rich's "rumors" is their Avatar Press shilling.

>So how is the publication schedule of Rebirth going to look for the upcoming DC Comics relaunch we have been going on about for an age?

>Here’s how it’s going to go, as far as I understand it.

In February, Batman #49
In March, Batman #50
In April, Batman #51
In May, Batman #52
In the first half of June – either Batman #Rebirth or Batman Rebirth #1
In the second half of June, Batman #1
In the first half of July, Batman #2
In the second half of July, Batman #3.

>All the books being relaunched as part of the DC Rebirth (and no, I don’t know how that will affect mini-series half way through their runs) will get a special Rebirth issue before their new #1. And those that are bi-weekly, like Batman, will get that first issue in the same month as their Rebirth issue.

>I have no idea what’s in it, or what it will mean. But I am asking.

Can't this fucker just release all the news at once instead of his multiple clicks shit.
>>
>>79512388
But this gives him more of that sweet ad money from people who aren't blocking.

Clicks are life, clicks are love.

That's just silly

I really hope this gets superman some good talent and another editorial team. I'm currently reading 0 DC books and I actually like DC

Tell me about non-Batbooks pls

A lot of middle aged people don't use adblock, which is a huge audience for superhero comics.

>>79512221

but black mirror was mediocre at best
just like his gates of gotham and all of his run on nu52 batman
>>
>>79512056
I assume we're going to get an actual Rebirth announcement from DC this week or maybe next then
>>
>>79512446
Kek there is some truth to that

I really hope DC makes an announcement on CBR or somewhere in between these Rich Johnston posts.
>>
>>79512426
I think we should make a petition to get Berganza off the Superman editorial.
>>
>>79512523
Someone needs to expose him as a sexual predator or something. DC will get some flak, but the quality of superman books will improve in the long term.
>>
>>79512446
Also somebody on cellphone.
>>
>>79512328
Oh God, calling the book Batman #Rebirth would be just stupid enough that I can believe it.
>>
>>79512445
Flash might get a new team since Van Jensen has said he's off

GL is probably getting a new artist, Venditti will probably stay

Sinestro is getting a new artist or maybe just cancelled
>>
>>79512523
Its crazy how someone who has had mediocre books after mediocre books for years still has this gig
>>
>>79512063
>and start writing – the secondary Batman title at the publisher – Detective Comics.

He says that like its a bad thing. That title gives writers plenty more room to breathe.
>>
>>79512542

>Venditti will probably stay

this guy ruined this series. why keep him, DC?
>>
>>79512533
He was exposed as a sexual predator years ago. All they did was demote him then shove him in a less public position while making it so he only works with other men to avoid another scandal.

Nothing will get Berganza fired. At best, he'll just get moved to a less important editorial division like Titans.
>>
>>79512557
Berganza already runs Titans. At DC it's "bat-family" and "other books."
>>
Holding out for E2/JSA news
>>
>>79512557
I thought he was already editing Titans
>>
>>79512539
Every book is being rebirthed. Batman is just being used as an example.
Here's how it goes.

- Final issue.
- Rebirth Issue.
- New #1 issue.
>>
>>79512557
>>79512570
>>79512576
He's been on Titans even before he was on the Supes line
>>
Uh..this sounds stupid. Batman is already selling high. Do they want it to sell in millions now? Marvel's relaunched titles are already selling low.
>>
>>79512582
>giving all the books a #1 when Marvel's latest attempt shows that no longer works
Granted a lot of those just continued with the same writers...
>>
>>79512603
New #1's is the name if the game, I hate it but... fuck do we know. If this doesn't pay off, I see some serious repercussions for Dan and the Gang,
>>
>>79512601
They figured "well Batman sells really well, so let's have it double ship so we can get twice as much Batman sales." Marvel did it all the time with Amazing Spider-man.
>>
>>79512221
>Does this mean we're finally getting some Black Mirror level shit again?

Is there a more overrated story here bros? It was ok at best. Jock's art really elevated it.

>Bleeding Cool was the first to report that Scott Snyder would be leaving the Batman monthly comic he has flourished on, as it goes bi-weekly and starts from a new #1 as part of the DC Rebirth relaunch project. And that Snyder will instead take on the also-relaunched-but-staying-monthly Detective Comics, also starring Batman.

>>79512328

This doesn't add up. I bet the "Rebirth" issues are gonna be one-shot jumping on points. So the Rebirth issues will end saying "continued in Batman #53" or whatever.

I have a feeling they're cautious about rebooting their entire line, especially their long-running flagship books like detective and action. Flash and GL probably should though. They won't simply copy Marvel.

>>79512603
Marvel's big problem with the relaunch was having Secret Wars in the middle. If your average casual reader who's only buying one or two books comes in and gets told the books they wanted had ended, they won't come back in four or five months for the new issue one.

If it had been set up as Final Issue, Transitional Issue, New Number 1 without skipping a month, you wouldn't have lost the cherry pickers and they'd have been able to follow it.

Well it will easily be better than Snyder's embarrassing run. Shame Capullo was wasted on him.

They should offer him Old Man Rogers or Bucky, not fucking Vision.

YOU DONT KNOW ME.

>>79512630
This is it. This is when /co/ turns on King.

Either that, or everyone keeps trying to be the first one to turn, that /co/ as a whole just skips that phase and stays as Kingfags
>>
>>79512642
More like it is going to be Dick as a spy and Bruce as Batman working together probably.
>>
>>79512647
Happened with Snyder, might as well happen with King too.

>>79512678
I think it ready started yesterday.
>>
>>79512711
People like you will keep showing up in storytimes saying he's overrated, when his quality still shows, if that's what you mean.
>>
>>79512685
Given the fan reaction to Vision and how they're pushing it Marvel will probably offer him something bigger like with certain other writers assuming he doesn't just focus on Batman.

Ok samefag, we get it.

Vision launched right when they announced Omega Men was done, people started to turn on him because it all fed into the company wars BS.

Rob Williams. He's British. He's sci-fi enthusiast. He's writing cosmic level mindfuckery in MM (sorta). What more do you want?

>>79512056
>Another fucking relaunch

Apathy abounds. At this rate just expect the big two to relaunch ever 2 years.
>>
>>79512063
Wow it never occurred to me that Snyder was somehow pressured to deliver these overblown events all the time. I just assumed he was obsessed with destroying Gotham every five weeks, and the Joker. Maybe he doesn't deserve all of the blame, after all.

I have no doubts that King could write a good Batman (I love Grayson, but I'm too intrigued to be mad right now), but the bi-weekly thing doesn't sound so great. He seems like a guy who puts a lot of effort into his scripts.
>>
>>79512736
For him not to be MEDIOCRE AS ALL FUCK
>>
>>79512759
Marbel are already doing it every 6 months
>>
>>79512761
Omega Men and Grayson go, that's two issues a month
>>
>>79512761
Well Omega Men is already cancelled and he's off Grayson starting next issue or the one after.

You can't get any worse than Venditti and he's not mediocre. His 2000 AD work is the shit and MM is awesome. KYS.

I do want to see his Batman though. Conflicted.

>This is it. This is when /co/ turns on King.
We already started turning on him. Didn't you see all the "Tom King is an SJW" threads?
>>
>>79512759
Yeah, Rebirth better be a big deal to spur a line wide relaunch.

This really has the potential to bite DC in the ass. We saw how quickly sales dropped for Marvel after their recent #1 fiasco. I'm really curious how LCS and causal fans are going to take it.

Batman/Superman
Superman/Wonder Woman
Grayson
Starfire
Black Canary
Midnighter
Doctor Fate

>More on what’s replacing them to come. I have also, independently been able to corroborate that at least two of those titles are cancelled.

Marvel's problem are the same shitty writers taking the reign's, so much so that some of DC writers are helping marvel in their slump.

Because Valiant is a clean slate, he can do whatever the fuck he wants. On GL all he's done are pointless retcons, that's his biggest achievement.

I love how this is supposed to be a secret but he keeps bringing it up. Creative teams are unaware that they're only pitching the titles but Rich the leech knows this, furthermore, he's making this information public knowledge and expects this to remain a secret. Rich is so full of shit.
>>
>>79512926

Ok. So what books have a chance of avoiding relaunch? Do you think they're relaunch Superman and Batman but keep AC and DC's numbering? I collect Action and I'd hate to see it go back to #1 so quick.

I'm concerned Rebirth is going to turn into a jumping OFF point like Secret Wars was...
>>
>YFW Rebirth is about leaving the current main DC Earth and focusing on another.

Don't lie /co/, you would love this.

Lower standards from people that read Valiant?

But I want him on GL ;_;

They finally killed Superman/Wonder Woman
and Batman/Superman
good those books are terrible and mainly pad out superman's line rather than their own

>>79512832
Nah nigga most of us are crying for King to take over

Johns seemed pretty burned out by the end anyway
>>
>>79512582
Wonder what Johns/Sciver are working on then.

I know he teased a Gary Frank collaboration when he quit Superman, that hasn't surfaced yet (not E1 Batman).

The obvious answer is Shazam, but that's been that obvious answer for 4 years now so fuck that.
>>
>>79512973
>I'm concerned Rebirth is going to turn into a jumping OFF point like Secret Wars was...

This.

All my LCS are currently getting hit hard because Marvel sales have tanked. Casual (and even some more hardcore) fans jumped ship because of Secret Wars.

Hell even the big Marvel guy at my store has stopped picking up Marvel and is going with a mix of DC/Image instead.
>>
>>79513024
I bet it's gonna be the central Rebirth book.
DC: Rebirth. It'll be the foundation of the relaunch.

Either GA or BoP book

Khalid/E2/JSA pls

Maybe it'll be the first Aquaman/JL arc
>>
>>79513037
Just like how all those Flash plans were dropped when Flashpoint came around. Remember Geoff had a shit load planned?
>>
>>79512076
It has to be a mini because Silvestri can't seem to handle deadlines, just look at his Hulk run,

SW hasn't deterred me from Marvel but their BS transparency has.

So i've been reading maybe 3 marvel books and More DC and Image books.

Stop that. Its a relaunch and RoSS is still possible under these conditions

He wrote a novel about Dick
>>
>>79512926
>Batman/Superman
I don't see why they'd do it. It isn't selling too bad. They just need to get a better creative team, the art is boring and suck and Pak is a hack.

Yeah, no, fuck you. Cancel that shit and put the artist on a Plastic Man ongoing.

You think it'd sell? Even with digital?

>>79513070
E2 will just get a reboot/rebirth again probably. Just because it aint cancelled doesnt mean they arent going to overhaul it
>>
>>79513067
Unclear. Darkseid War ends in April so unless JL double ships or doesn't end in June I don't think there's time

Also Hitch and Johns said they were planning a JL/JLA crossover (fuck knows how or why though)
>>
>>79513081
If it launches in a month with very few #1's then I see it surviving until 12.

>>79513099
Theres nothing to say Johns is leaving JL post-Rebirth
>>
>>79513099
>Unclear
Figures. Oh well, wait and see. As usual.
>JL/JLA crossover
Didn't hear about this. I guess lot of time travel would be involved.
>>
>>79512946
He got to do whatever he wanted, with GL too, and with it he undid everything that Johns did.
>>
>>79513129
Yeah that's why I suggested ROTSS might be the first Rebirth arc for JL and Aquaman
>>
>>79513136
Johns probably killed Venditti's GL husbando.
>>
>>79513160
We all miss Jack T Chance, that's no excuse

This has been coming for a bit. Remember the "stop Batgirling" decree that came down from on high? This is the reaction to that.

Speaking of Batgirl, I'm curious if this means that Burnside is over. I'm love a return to the early nu-52 suit and a different creative team.

Now that an ex CIA is writing Batman, will CIA be included as a supporting character in his run?

>>Launch a new Biweekly Trinity book to try to get that Batman vs Superman money

I'd be ok with this.jpg
>>
>>79513172
Why would it be over if it was semi-successful fir Babs? It just means DC won't try to apply it to other books anymore, where it failed to have similar effect.
>>
>>79513172
>Speaking of Batgirl, I'm curious if this means that Burnside is over.
I really doubt it, did you see Batgirl's new costume already made it into a DTV? They're not getting rid of that

I'm pretty sure the meat and potatoes is mostly in reference to DC's A-list characters and JL members, they gotta get back to basics

>Batgirl's new costume already made it into a DTV

I'm sorry to hear this. I really just don't like the burnside suit.

IMO the early nu52 design was one of the best she has had in awhile. Really would love to see it or something like it back one day.
>>
>>79513325
I'm not fan of Burnside costume, either. She looks like car mechanic.
>>
>>79513325
>headcanon that Batman bought her that expensive-looking armored suit because he figured if she's going to fight crime she should at least have a greater degree of protection than a makeshift costume

That's fucking terrible. The art changes will be unbearable and writers will shit out mediocre scripts just to reach the deadlines.

Who thought this was a good idea?

>Remember the "stop Batgirling" decree that came down from on high?
Fuck off Rich. Just because you keep saying it doesn't make it true.
>>
>>79513492
Depends of the creative team.

There was a biweekly run of X-files comics back in the 90s that was GOAT and the writing/art never suffered.

As long as the new team knows what it is getting into and has the lead time needed, then it should be fine.

>>79513492
They want to catch up with Marvel in the marketshare. In reality most Marvel books that double ship don't do it every month because of delays

I still don't get why people praise his B&R. He just ignored all the great developement Damian got in Morrison's run and made him an insufferable cunt TWICE for no apparent reason, to both Dick and Bruce.

Because the lowest common denominator eat up cheesy overblown melodramatic shit.

To be honest, in the wake of the colossal failure of Truth, this is probably the right call.

That's been the problem with New 52 Superman in general. It's always changing things up and reinventing the wheel when it never really laid the groundwork with solid stories first.

I do find it funny how Superman and Batman really have no need for a second book except for sales and crossover purposes since they stay in the same place and battle the same guys over and over, but Wonder Woman doesn't even though she would benefit storywise greatly.

Hopefully they're smart enough to put a strong writer on it, at least for a year or two.

Hopefully this shit being slung all over forces DC to reveal their plans or confirm it. Otherwise it's just going to cause miscommunication.

Except he showed enormous levels of respect of humility before Bruce in B&R #16 and The Return one-shot.

>>79515897
Dc and Marvel need to stop having 70+ books each since the market can't support them all. I'm seeing people who didn't know Black Knight existed since he just got lost in the ANAD relaunch, and the same with Omega Men when the news of its cancellation hit a few months ago.
It would be better if they had less than 60 (or 50 tbqh) each and maybe double shipped some of their best selling titles once and a while.

That's just "lazy excuses" territory and I don't feel like fighting for every single nuance. He's met Gordon, he learned to respect both him and Grayson, he pretty much started idolizing Bruce - by the end of Morrison's B&R he stopped being a shit period. He wasn't a shit in Incorporated either.

Just because it's a reboot doesn't mean you should remake old stories, but plebbier. Even worse if said stories are fairly recent.

I don't think he is going to 'die' per se. I do think that the notion of Batman having a son is going to drive editorial insane just as much as Spider-Man (and even Superman) being married did a few years ago.

Marvel and DC cancel books all the time, it doesn't mean anything other than "these are the lowest-selling books so we're getting rid of them to make way for the next round of launches" most of the time. Sometimes a book will get cancelled for story reasons but it's rare.

Steph is the five year old, as we saw in her appearances in Batgirl.

Man I really wish James Robinson could get back on a DC book. But I doubt that will ever happen after they fucked him over with Earth 2...

Fuck at least he could finish his indie book The Saviors that he just seemed to drop a year ago after 5 issues.

Seriously I'm gonna laugh if this rebirth thing is just a Johns/EVS book, the gimmick for the #52 issues, and/or a new brand name a la DCYou.
You know instead of relaunching everything back to #1 after having a Rebirth #1 for everything.
>>
>>79516064
I've seen a lot of posts from Jasonfags on /co/, trying very hard to imply he is or ever was a good character.

If those are all done by the same person, kudos to his gigantic autism.
>>
>>79516152
nah, Spider-Man is a legendary case of "we need him to stay a manchild".

DC doesn't have much problem with older Batman. Hell, they already have that for their movies.
>>
>>79516070
Good christ just stop. His first attempt with Gordon was pre-nu 52. Morrison was still writing Damian when Tomasi got the book.

Also Batman's transitioned to nu 52 without any reboots or character changes except for some tie severing
>>
>>79516201
>>
>>79516193
Why? It's time to face the facts, he's done way more shit comics than good comics.

He can take Dick's role of being Batman-lite.

That is of course if they don't make Dick that again.

In that case Tim is just better off dead or in limbo.
>>
>>79516183
Steph is back? I haven't read Batgirl in a long time, when I did Barbara was at most 9.
>>
>>79516217
Well, it's not just the age thing. Having a son has a lot of continuity baggage. It adds one more Robin for new readers to keep track of, it means more and more exposition every time they keep him around after a 'reboot' or 'rebirth' or whatever.
>>
>>79512973
I hope they just go back to original numbers for both of those and count the New 52 issues. But DC is gonna want to push Detective and #934 isn't as appealing as #1, and I don't see them returning Action's numbers and not Detective's.

The way it SHOULD be is Batman and Superman are for the more casual readers, Detective and Action are for the longtime fans.
>>
>>79516152
>I do think that the notion of Batman having a son is going to drive editorial insane just as much as Spider-Man (and even Superman) being married did a few years ago
At this point? Doubtful. Damian has proven popular and the whole "Robins are like sons to Batman" thing has existed since the 80s.

Batman Eternal #4 or something.

>>79516267
These things last for a long time - look at the Super/Spider marriage - but they eventually form messy knots and they get retconned.
>>
>>79516224
>Batman's transitioned to nu 52 without any reboots or character changes
haha what.

Tim Drake had most of his past retconned

Most of Morrison's stories were retconned (although he ignored the retcon in Inc. and that one-shot story)

Cassie and Steph were retconned

They basically erased everything from Batman history except for benchmark stories that still sell well now like TKJ, Knightfall, and even Year One was heavily fucked with.

>>79516234
all you can do is post reaction images because you dont have an argument but wont admit youre wrong
>>
>>79516261
But they've actually gone harder on promoting Damian. All their animated movies are about him now.

And they're obviously cool with bat sidekicks.
>>
>>79516261
dude you're acting like damian was only just introduced a year ago when he's been around since 2006. he's not going away.

Duke is the one most in danger of fading away but he's been well received in Snyder's run and We Are Robin. Pretty sure more people know who he is than Harper Row.
>>
>>79516201
If he doesn't waste splash pages on cutesy shit and spell every emotion out it doesn't mean he can't write character.

People guessed Wingman was Jason just by the way he talked to Bruce in that one panel. Inc #1 had some of the best Catwoman/Batman interaction without RAINY SEX ON THE ROOFTOP and shitty attempts at romance novel writing. Same applies to Damian's transition from a fraggy little brat to a sensitive little brat
>>
>>79516267
Yes but Damian will have to "grow up" at some point. This usually happens through big directional changes like being in Teen Titans, so we'll see.

With the reboot they managed to make Tim 16 again but they barely care about him so who cares.

Dick making Batman look old due to Dick's constantly changing and aging is one reason why they wanted to kill him off like a decade ago.

>Why does anyone put up with this shit?
because breaking into comics, especially Big Two, is not an easy thing unless you have a boat-load of connections. there are creators like Kate Leth who got their career literally by knowing the right people and having luck.
>>
>>79516286
Marvel had Spider-Man get married in the cartoon, too. Mirroring the animation to the comics is nothing new. I may question my doubts that he will stick around in his current role if they decide to give Batfleck a son - but I highly, highly, highly doubt that will ever happen.

>>79516288
I don't think he will go away. I do think he will have some retcon alter him significantly - he's a clone, he was a scheme by Ra's all along - if they are still selling Damian as Batman's 'son' biologically in, say, seven years? I will be very, very surprised.

It was generic Leeified outfit shit, no style or personality or sense kf desgn to it. Just the black and yellow suit drawn as 3d spandex.


The Burnside outfit is better designed than it on all levels, it's physicality, color scheme, and personality all integrate holistically with the tone and narrative of the book.

People let there tumblr hate biners blind them to the fact Babs and Cam are fucking amazing artists and designers.

Marvel had a regime change from the 90s, though. Quesada spearheaded that shit against the marriage.

It would take one of those, for anyone at DC starts to run out Damian.

>>79516297
People guessed Wingman because Jason was one of the few bat-heroes missing from the story.

Post the catwoman page, I bet the dialogue is stilted inhuman shit.

The thing is Batfleck is the perfect age for Damian to exist.
I wouldn't mind if the Batman film ended with his arrival

TV writers work on similar schedules with bigger scripts . Just take season braks and shit.
>>
I ain't listening to any of Rich's fear-mongering shit unless he can confirm the Finches are gone from Wonder Woman...
>>
>>79516405
And regime changes happen all the time - and I guarantee, screencap this shit - sooner or later some new guy from WB will want to see Batman (or, hell the whole DC line) go 'back to basics' and Dick being the son of Bruce and Talia is not going to fly when that happens.
>>
>>79516314
It's a lie by Rich. You can't waste a writer's time with scripts you won't use. But more importantly, you can';t waste an artist's time with pages you won't use. Not to mention that a pitch and a scrips are totally different thing. What, you're going to pay 5 different creative teams and then pick the best out of them to publish? don't make me laugh.
>>
>>79516449
"Back to Basics" Batman is still and older guy usually with a Robin, and past romantic relationships.

Its not at all like the "We want the High School Peter" thing.

And it was a big fucking plot point. Bruce was fucking pissed at him and Damian genuinely felt sad but he wanted to save his father.
>>
>>79516471
It's pitches, not scripts. And certainly not drawn pages.
>>
>>79516314
I am assuming this is before any contracts get signed. From the New 52, Brian Clevinger was asked to pitch for Firestorm, and had his proposal approved and begun work, only for the New 52 to occure and his book scrapped in favor of Simone's.

>But then people higher up the chain of command decided it was time to do The Big Reboot and suddenly my project was surplus to requirements. I mean, look at the names on those reboot titles: everyone involved is a staple of DC. I’m just some guy. A simple B-lister relaunch is something they can trust to an unknown like me. But when you’re talking about part of an unprecedented line-wide reset, well, they want to minimize the unknowns. DC veterans Gail Simone and Ethan Van Scriver picked up writing duties on Firestorm for the reboot, and I wish them the best.

Bleeding Cool eventually put up his entire pitch, you can see it here: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2011/09/05/what-brian-clevingers-firestorm-1-would-have-been-like/

>>79516432
Because on tv there is not one single writer, there's a whole army of them for one single show.

'Back to Basics' Batman is no older than maybe thirty-five.

What?

>You can’t trust anyone these days. Certainly DC Comics publishers can’t trust their editors and creators to keep a secret.

>And it seems they were right on the money.

>I have been informed of a recent meeting at DC Comics between the publishers and editors, in which they were told that one of the beg ideas behind the upcoming “Rebirth” relaunch of the DC Comics universe will depend on something upcoming in the Batman V Superman movie.

>But it’s a secret.

>And too secret for the editors and creators to know – at least right now.

>You know, the ones actually working on the Rebirth comics.

>So it seems that DC Comics big media is driving the comics more than some would like to admit.

>And that this is one hell of a way to run a publisher.

>Say, you don’t suppose that Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, the film set to establish a movie version of the Justice League – could also be establishing a movie version of the previously-mentioned Justice Society Of America in the nineteen forties? Something that Wonder Woman could also appear in?

>Okay, now that bit is just speculation….
>>
>>79516573

Okay Rich. That's enough, you are clearly running your tongue
>>
>>79516568
Sure, but will an executive want Batman to have a kid, plus like three other Robins? Will they want the continuity baggage of past stories explaining who Damian's mom and grandfather are before issue number one even hits the stands? Will they want to forego calling Dick and Tim (who are far more well known in the 'normie sector') 'Robin'? I think the answer to these questions is 'no'.
