    I just realised.....

    Keaton is set to appear in Morbius, but also in The Flash.... He'll be in Marvel and DC in the same year. Assuming The Flash will be released when it should. Morbius is now set for late January, Flash for November

    Briana Venskus did that for a while as Agent Vasquez on Supergirl and Agent Piper on Agents of SHIELD. They were basically the exact same character, and they both were absent from their respective shows for a while and then returned to both series in February 2017 in episodes that both involved an impostor hunt in a locked-down base. I'm convinced that Vasquez and Piper are cross-multiversal incarnations of the same entity.

    Me too. A sequel was due in 2022 but Universal now have the rights to make lego movies but Warners own Batman so we won't be getting another lego Batman movie. Also the last two lego movies didn't do well so I guess that's why Warners didn't hold onto it.

    I agree. The movies barely showed him in his position. Maybe that was the point, that people today will instantly go an extreme on something new and big? If so, it was communicated poorly.

    In SUperman II, even though we didn't see much on screen, it still felt like Superman had been around for a minute. B v. S felt way too fast.

    Yes, I honestly DID miss it, It did NOT have the same impact as the Captain America montage in First AVenger, where we get a good set up, and have enough scenes to feel like Captain AMerica and TheHowling COmmandos were a solid team with many adventures. And they had the news reel scene to remind us that all of America knew about it too.

    Or the Up montage... in like what, 7 minutes, gave us Carl's life story, and helped us sympathize with him, and understand his "grumpy old man" persona.

    This type of stuff is what some of us critics of Snyder would point to as part of the problem.

    #ReleaseTheSnyderCut ...or wait, never mind.

    Apparently this time it’s actually Burghley House. Shame, as the continuity would’ve been nice (though apparently they used a different place in Returns too).

    I only watched a bit of AoS. Should probably binge it at some point.

    Often fans overlook Tim Burton had little interest in visual continuity in his own sequel. The Batmoblie, the utility belt stayed the same. But the suit was mostly changed and Gotham City too. Wayne Manor’s exterior was a model which does not resemble the original location at all. Batman Returns was filmed mostly on sound stages in Hollywood. Even most of the exteriors. While the original was shot in England. An effort could have been made to carry over those designs even shooting in the USA. But Burton was clear that his goal was to not due a traditional sequel and start fresh.

    It will be interesting to see how the world of Michael Keaton’s Batman is represented than. Fans love consistency in design but it was never really there. Also it’s been 30 years. Would Gotham still look that way? It was always outside of any real time.

    My bigger question is how this Batman will be so many years later? His Batman never was seen to interact with other superheroes. Never even had a Robin. He was in costume a man of few words. Famously Michael Keaton reduced his lines from what was in the final scripts when time to shoot. To have a greater impact when he did speak. How will he interact with the Flash? Lots could have happened and he could have changed in 30 years. But expectations are going to be that he acts as we remember. As a huge fan of Michael Keaton from more than just Batman I am not sure what I hope for or even what I expect to see.

    That could be interpreted as mocking Snyder and his fans... lol

    More just good-natured teasing, I'd say.

    That's why Bruce lives outside of town. Better weather.

    TNT absolutely should've went forward with that joke and aired it that way. I would've cropped it to 4:3 for effect.

    TBS could then show that version but "colorized" but I think only us old folk would get that joke.

    Would be a good way to explain WW84 since it doesn't fit in with Diana isolating herself away for a century as stated in Batman v. Superman.

    And in Whedon's Justice League where they really drive the fact home.

    Could we finally be getting a 1938 period piece Superman movie? (Probably not--but that would be AWESOME)

    Some will think there's a certain kind of message being sent that this Superman film is not a part of the so-called multiverse. It almost seems as if they (WB) do not want to make this new Superman an official part of its film universe. The question is why.

    On the other hand, this leaves the door open for WB to honor the Cavill contract for one additional film.

    I guess the "multiverse" is needed as a pretense for those who don't have the imagination to just accept different stories and styles of projects co-existing. Whatever works.
