This isn't going to be the last iteration of on screen Batman. There will be a younger Catwoman again.
Not for a decade or so. Because we're stuck with the DCEU for the foreseeable future. and the future movies are essentially going to have to be apologies for the mistakes the last ones made. But if the mistakes just keep piling up on each other one after the other. . .DC still won't reboot. Because WB is past the point of no return, they've dumped too much money into the DCEU to back out now. If defeat is admitted and they do a HARD reboot, heads very high up the WB corporate food chain will roll.
Best case scenario I can imagine is a soft reboot using time travel or a super-villain with multiverse dimension hopping power. Which would be fine. . . if X-Men: Days Of Future past hadn't done it first.
Reichu wrote:One of the best Batman adaptations, Batman: TAS, had relatively few direct adaptations of stories from the comics. Instead, it borrowed liberally from the mythos and was not afraid to innovate, resulting in many elements that immigrated back into the comic from the show. That is to say, a skilled screenwriter could do plenty with the concept of an older Batman and Catwoman.
I'm not saying it would have to be a 100% faithful adaptation. I'm just saying certain aspects from those stories can't be told properly in a movie if the character is old and past his prime, same with Catwoman.
Let me put this simply. I know it's a little hyperbolic, but hear me out. THIS is Catwoman in Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns. The work that Zack Snyder and Goyer, (for better or worse) drew upon for inspiration when making BVS.
This is the Catwoman, people want to see in the movies:
WB has already alienated plenty of people by giving them versions of Batman and Superman they largely didn't want. Do want them to alienate people more by giving them a version of Catwoman, a character who has never been properly portrayed on the big OR small screen, they largely don't want?
Do I think it's likely? Well, not especially, given DCCU's track record so far, but it is possible.
Just keep rubbing salt in the wounds of us DC fans . . . That's about yer speed.
and Marvel overlaps Dc on the track and gives the middle finger on the way to the victory circle. (Sigh)
Apparently Matt Reeves is officially in early talks to take over The Batman as director, sounds great to me, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was awesome.
Given the circumstances? I'll take him.
