Wake up, everybody! Wipe the sleep out of your face! Drink your coffee really fast, no matter how hot or cold it might be, because we’ve got a Batman rumor to share! WEEOOOWEEOOWEEOOO!* Now that we’ve all seen The Dark Knight Rises and are ready for a new Batman franchise some of us may have a few questions about it, like “How are they going to do it?” And “When is it going to come out?” And “Soon?” And “How soon?” And “Like YEARS or like…?” I won’t pretend like anyone will ever be satisfied until there is a new Batman movie in front of our faces, but hopefully this HOT HOT RUMOR, from Batman-On-Film obviously, will help:

I received a bit of intel here recently that involves the Batman on film reboot and the inevitable JUSTICE LEAGUE film.

It’s looking as a live-action JUSTICE LEAGUE film — the one currently being penned by Will Beall for Warner Bros. — just might be the studio’s first big, DC Comics-based tent pole movie after 2013’s MAN OF STEEL. This JL film would, possibly, hit theaters Summer 2015. So, exactly WHAT does this have to do with BATMAN REBOOTED? Read on…

Said reboot will come after the JL film, not before. Therefore, the new cinematic Batman will be introduced in the JL film as opposed to a solo film. This would, according to my industry “FOBOF,” assure the new Batman film series will be part of a “DC Cinematic Universe.”

AHHHHHHHHH! Did that rumor help or hurt, do you think? Are you too excited now? Less excited? Nervous? Still asleep? GUYS! Who is going to play Batman? RYAN GOSLING? Oh my god oh my god. Is there a girl in Justice League? Who’s going to play the girl? Do you think it will be Elizabeth Olsen? Is Joseph Gordon-Levitt going to be in it? What kind of bomb are they going to have to get rid of at the end, do you think? Hello? ANYONE? (Via SlashFilm.)

*Alarm sound.

  1. Pretty sure David Justice played in the American League, if that helps.

  2. Tom Hardy would be awesome. It would be great for him to have played a villain (Bain Capital) AND then go on to play the BATMAN.

  3. Shia LaBeouf 4 Batman

  4. first i find out it’s not a baby batman live action film and then i find out it’s not a baby justice league either? THAT PICTURE IS VERY MISLEADING!

  5. Does FOBOF stand for “friend of brother of friend” or is it an alias for this insider. Either way, sounds legit.

  6. Who cares? The REAL question is. who’s going to play Marvin & Wendy?

  7. Wonder Woman is in the Justice League. I mean, there have been other ladies throughout the years, but since they will probably only pick one, it’ll be her (not to complain, she is great. I just wish Black Canary and Donna Troy would get some love). I suppose Elizabeth Olsen COULD play her, but I’d much prefer seeing Gina Carano in the role.

    YES I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THIS TOO MUCH SHUT UP MY MOM THINKS I’M COOL (no she doesn’t).

    • For some reason, I read that as “Carla Guigino” and at first I was like, “ehhh” and then I thought about it more and I was like “I can totally get behind that! And then I re-read it and saw it was not Carla Guigino and I was bummed.

      But I looked up Gina Carano and I do believe she would be awesome as well! I was also thinking that woman that was in the WWE and now does movies but I don’t remember her name or the name of the movie she was in (she was basically a female Jason Bourne I think?)

    • Donna Troy would never get into a Justice League movie because of Wonder Woman. If they want a little sister, they’ll use Supergirl.

      Black Canary would work. Hawkgirl is too difficult to produce on film (Hawkman would be easier to convince the studio to finance). The only other major women are Zatanna, Huntress, and Vixen. (Vixen only because she’s a diversity double play [what? - Halle Berry as Storm] and she was one of the New 52 JLI members)

      • I want to see Big Barda in the JL movie. I just want more Big Barda in general.

        Only maybe skip the superman porn plot, movie makers. That’d be for the best all around.

  8. JGL as nightwing then becomes Batman later.

    Also: is anyone else excited for the animated “Dark Knight Returns”? It looks weird and interesting.

  9. I’d really like to write something witty, but I’m having a really hard time typing around my nerd boner.

  10. Ooh, ooh, Bryan Cranston should be available by then, and he already does Batman-voice, plus: Teethface Batman! And an older, crankier Batman is just more fun anyway. It’d be especially good for Videogum, so that’s why I’ve future-casted Batman, and now we’re all glad I explained that.

  12. WHO’S GOING TO PLAY VIBE IN THE JLA MOVIE? WHO’S GOING TO PLAY VIBE IN THE JLA MOVIE? WHO’S GOING TO PLAY VIBE IN THE JLA MOVIE? WHO’S GOING TO PLAY VIBE IN THE JLA MOVIE?

    • In fact, all the Justice League Detroit members should be in it. They’re a lot more colorful than the regular team (RE: racial stereotypes from the ’80s)

      • True but don’t think for a second DC isn’t going to have John Stewart as Green Lantern (PLEASE IDRIS ELBA, PLEASE GOD IDRIS ELBA), their not completely brainless.

        • Idris Elba will be too busy in dual roles of Black Panther and Luke Cage in the new Marvel Studios film MARVEL’S MARVEL TEAM-UP feat. THE BLACK PANTHER AND POWER MAN LUKE CAGE!

          • Guest starring HEIMDALL and MOREAU THE DRUNK MONK FROM GHOST RIDER 2! And what the hell, STRINGER BELL shows up! And DETECTIVE JOHN LUTHER!!! With a special appearance by CAPTAIN JANEK!

  13. what’s a batman?
