Okay, not trying to be a negative nancy about “The Batman” because it does look like it’ll be an amazing movie, but is anyone else tired of live-action Batman media that refuses to move past the early days of Batman? Like, the origin is fine and it’s always fun to explore Batman’s early days, but it’s overdone and keeps missing out on a key aspect of the Bat side of DC; the Batfamily.
It’s like DC is stuck in two modes:
1) Live-action Batman, but it’s the early days and no Batfamily (Burtonverse, Nolan trilogy, Gotham). Also, before anyone brings this up, I’m not counting Robin John Blake since we never see him in a batsuit.
2) The Batfamily, but Bruce is nowhere to be found and they’ve already moved on from Bruce and are doing their own thing (Titans, Batwoman)
Then we have the DCEU which killed off their Robin before we even had a chance to see him. Literally, the only live-action Batman media that I can think of that featured the Batfamily would be 1960s Adam West Batman and the Schumacher films.
Just...can we please get a movie that features Bruce, Dick, Barbara, Jason, Tim, and Damian? We’ve already seen Bruce’s origin story like ten billion times, give us a story that we haven’t seen yet.
