THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD | WB Announces Batman & Robin Film


DC Studios Co-CEO’s James Gunn and Peter Safran have announced the first slate of films and TV series for the new DCU.  Yes, there is a new solo Superman film (which we already knew about) that Gunn is currently writing, as well as some other films and TV projects, but since this is Batman on Film, I’m going to focus here on, well, Batman on film.

So, one of the projects announced is a Batman and Robin team-up film which will be titled THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD which is inspired by Grant Morrison’s BATMAN AND ROBIN comic book series.

Gunn said (via VARIETY) that this Batman film series will introduce “the Bat-Family” and the first of which will be feature Damien Wayne as Robin. Gunn described him as “our favorite Robin,” “a little son of a bitch,” an “assassin,” and a “murderer.”  “It’s a very strange sort of father-son story about the two of them,” Gunn said.

This live-action Batman film series will exist concurrently with Matt Reeves’ THE BATMAN UNIVERSE (“The BatVerse” as Reeves calls it) which stars Robert Pattinson as The Dark Knight.
