SUPERMOVIES: THIS IS WHAT THE NEXT FEW YEARS OF YOUR LIFE LOOKS LIKE [INFOGRAPHIC]
By Andrew Wheeler
The Warner Bros. announcement on Wednesday of ten upcoming movies based on DC Comics properties neatly fills in a calendar of dates that the studio previously provided — and help flesh out an extraordinary timetable of DC and Marvel superhero movies over the next six years from Warner Bros, Marvel Studios, Fox, and Sony Columbia.
ComicsAlliance’s own graphics maestro Dylan Todd put together a timeline that reveals what those six years look like, including 29 confirmed release dates between now and the end of 2020, with several dates and titles still to be announced. For anyone who remembers the days when just one Spider-Man movie seemed an impossible dream, it’s an astonishing representation of how comic book superheroes now dominate popular entertainment.

"A friend of mine asked me recently, was I gonna go see the new Batman movie with him. But I don’t respect the concept of Batman because of what I understand about politics now. I’mma lay it out for you: rich dude owns a corporation with state of the art equipment, and he uses this to beat up on street level crime. He doesn’t mess with the industrialists, or the super capitalists, or the Murdochs, or the Trumps. He really just fucks with the person that’s on the corner. Batman is a conservative’s wet dream. Fuck Batman."

Yeah, while I can kinda see where some critics of The Dark Knight Rises are coming from when they say it’s thematically fascist, I tend to chalk it up to Nolan being pretty apolitical and Goyer being ignorant.

The above conversation’s also come at a time when I’ve realized, while I don’t hate Bruce, I really don’t care about Batman as a character in general. It’s the DCAU Batman that is one of my favorite characters.

I remember being young and seeing that B:TAS episode where he finds all the homeless children living in the sewers and being forced to steal for the Fagin-like villain (“The Underdwellers”), and I think it was the first time I ever saw a superhero being actively compassionate and righteously outraged. rather than just punching bad people. That’s the Batman I love.

Yeah, there is something a little off, I guess, about how Bane is accurate and right on the money in that the peace and justice of the past years in Gotham has been earned through lies generated by Batman and Gordon to preserve Harvey’s image, and that the people are expected to return to the previous state of things despite any genuine and justified outrage they may hold, but I think that was more just Nolan wanting to tie a neat bow on everything and not really thinking it through. Sure, Bane’s using it to his advantage, but he is right when he explains and details the corruption of the system keeping people underfoot… Not that it justifies his release of the unrepentant Blackgate inmates.

And yeah, comics!Batman doesn’t interest me much unless he’s written by Dini - while I’m currently enjoying the Snyder/Capullo run, it’s largely for the takes on the varying villains, who are all more interesting than Batman himself, and Batman Eternal has Harper and Steph, both of whom interest me more. The Keaton Batman, despite the brutality, and the DCAU Batman interest me much more than the normal comics version. And yeah, the Underdwellers is kind-of a shocking episode in some respects given the nature of the villain. I remember being surprised by Batman’s dismissal of the villain’s potential death by sewer alligator but suppose that Batman almost certainly wouldn’t mourn someone like that, and when the same villain nearly gets run over by a train, I distinctly remember Batman’s speech where he details what the justice system is going to do to but then adds that he’s ‘sorely tempted to finish the job himself’, and… Yeah. That’s great stuff. The DCAU did a lot of good stuff. Best Joker. Best Batman.

THIS REVELATION HAS RUINED MY LIFE

(via lapocketrocket)

one of the main reasons I’ve never found batman a compelling hero

(via nmkerr)

I dunno, I always preferred the DCAU Batman, as he had more compassion and actively worked to fix the social ills. All the people he beats up on? Its mostly the people that hide behind the law, like the Mob or these villains who would really ruin people if he didn’t show up to beat them up.

There are moments throughout the comics and fuck even the actual shows where Batman has exhibited incredible compassion. In one such instance, it was revealed one crook had seen remarkable rehabilitation in Prison and using his Bruce Wayne alter ego, he hires the guy to work as a security guard in one of his firms. 

This up there, the comment starter above? I like to think that’s just Nolan’s Batman, and not the Batman most of us know and love. Nolan Batman is leagues different from the Batman I grew up with.

Nolan’s Batman doesn’t give second chances. “I won’t kill you, but I won’t save you either.”

Nono no.

Fuck that.

The Batman I grew up with would defy all odds. He would save you. He would help you rehabilitate if you needed it. Fucker even paid for Harvey to get Plastic Surgery on his face to see if that could help him recover better (it worked, for a time.).

The Batman I grew up with was less a conservatives wetdream, and more represented someone that knew the System was beaten and downtrodden and needed help. It needed work from the inside out.

Besides, wasn’t he beating up on Corrupt Cops in the first movie anyway?

Fuck.

(via spoilersspoilerseverywhere)

This. The right takes on Batman do the right thing to the best of their ability in everything. For the things he doesn’t cover, there’s Bruce Wayne, who at best is a genuine philanthropist under the ditzy personality he displays to the public. Batman does go after these people on the corner when necessary, but stuff like BTAS shows him going after the Norman Osborn-expy Roland Daggett and eventually bringing him down, while Bruce Wayne is a member of the board at Arkham, invests in new housing for the poorest parts of town, and actively give a shit. Didn’t he also twist some arms to keep Luthor out of Gotham during NML?

So.. Yeah. Even if you’ve only seen film versions of the character, Batman or Bruce Wayne is typically doing something to help the little guy. In Batman Returns he’s in opposition to Max Schreck, who is literally a super-industrialist wanting to suck power from Gotham and who has the ability to puppeteer elections. In Batman Begins, he removes the corrupt head of his own company and replaces him with someone better. In The Dark Knight, he works to put various high-class criminals behind bars, thus cleaning up the city in ways beyond tackling street crime. He gives the Ventriloquist a job at his company in the underrated New Batman Adventures, he actively gives a shit about his foes and their mental illnesses. To just say Batman beats up street criminals is deliberately twisting the character to fit an argument, and it’s a little disappointing from someone usually so smart and funny as Reginald D Hunter.

Your Preview of Gotham Academy #1 out TOMORROW

The first issue of Gotham Academy hits the stands and screens tomorrow. If you heard the 3 Chicks Podcast review and interview with Becky Cloonan, you know I love the book. If you haven’t done so, I’d call my shop and ask them to hold a copy if you’re a floppy reader.

I honestly believe this book could, along with Ms. Marvel, be the change agent for comics.

Tomorrow: classes are in session!!

Everything about this looks so lovely. I can’t wait to get a copy <3

If you read my stuff, I suspect you want this.

Well, if you only read Uber, you may not. But you should.

If this makes you drool for more lovely Karl Kerschl art, may I recommend Teen Titans: Year One and The Abominable Charles Christopher?
