    It's like an R-rated CW show?

    Looks more like an "edgy" fan film to me.

    I think this is supposed to come from DC's own bespoke media stream.

    And yeah, I'd type more, but I cut my fingers on all that edge.

    That looks like Batman v Superman-level grimdark with the production values of Freeform. Good lord.

    That... Jesus Fucking Christ that's awful.

    I complained when black Starfire showed up. Now that I see the orange version I'm not sure which one is worse.

    Bruce and Dick have had plenty of falling outs in the comics. Could've been worded less Mountain Dewy, but not surprising.

    How are they supposed to up the dark ante after this? Does Robin go into a maternity ward and smother the babies and look at the camera and whisper, "Hitler was right"?

    Irony: the stir in fanworld right now is that the She-Ra reboot looks cutesy.

    My comment was just about the F-bomb in this show. I'm well aware of Bruce and Dick's history.

    Taking his frustration out on hurting criminals is more of a Jason Todd thing to do, though.

    I believe you guys need a palate cleanser, so here's the trailer for the return of Young Justice.

    Ruby Rose cast as Batwoman?

    I’m DYING for a live action Batwoman, but that is awful.

    She can’t even act when she’s silent.

    Yeah, I think Rose is a good pick too, and that she's got and a charismatic presence on-screen (with her completely wordless performance in the second John Wick probably showcasing this best) and has a pretty perfect, striking look like she's ripped straight from a comic illustration.

    But isn't she just Batwoman for one of those CW crossover events, with her stemming from an episode of The Flash? I can't say I regularly watch any of those shows so I'm not exactly invested in knowing how it all pans out.

    There'll likely be a totally different sort of choice for the big screen version of the role in no time.

    Maybe this is where he should have been instead of big screen movies.

    Len Wiseman to direct Swamp Thing Series.
