Effing incredible Batman fan comic ‘The Deal’ shows what would happen if Batman and the Joker finally destroyed each other
Even though the Joker is and kinda always has to be a constant presence in the Batman universe, and the Joker has done pretty much everything to push Batman to his personal limits, but Batman has never crossed the line and killed the Joker. In return, the Joker kills everyone but Batman just to keep fucking with him. But what if there were no more lines? What if these two arch rivals finally went all the way? I think this comic just broke my mind.
Today, five year old Miles Scott is having the wish of a lifetime come true via the Make a Wish Foundation. Today is the day when Miles Scott, who has been battling leukemia since he was a year old, is Batman for the day, saving the city of San Francisco from evil. And pretty much all of SF is in on it, posting pictures and thanks across the internet to Batkid.
In the latest Smodcast, Kevin Smith revealed that he’s seen Ben Affleck in his Bat-suit for Batman vs. Superman and he absolutely fucking loves it. However, he was also a big fan of Affleck in Daredevil, so there’s that.
Ever since it was revealed that the plot for Man of Steel 2, aka Batman vs Superman would use Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ as its batspiration, I was already envisioning a shorter eared bat cowl for Ben Affleck, and it looks like the rumor mill has kind of confirmed this, though the above image is from ‘Batman: Noel’ from 2011, which is a more modern take on the more compact Frank Miller style cowl and suit. Apparently, the first round of design would have made the next on-screen Batman similar to his look in the game ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’, but it was scrapped for being too similar to Chris Nolan’s Batman.
If DC is serious about a Justice League movie, they’re going to have to move fast. Which is why it’s both kind of surprising and kind of not surprising that a casting call for Batman vs. Superman has people talking about whether Wonder Woman might show up.
