Did Warner Bros. put Andy Muschietti in a no-win situation by announcing a reboot of the DCEU ahead of the release of The Flash? Or would the movie have flopped, even without the rise of the DCU?

With a different actor other than the enigmatic Ezra Miller as the Scarlet Speedster and more time to work on the VFX, would The Flash have fared better with film critics and DC Comics fans?

We'll never know, but Muschietti has a chance to redeem himself a bit in, within the superhero fandom, as he's set to helm the DCU's first Batman film, The Brave and the Bold, which will feature the big screen debut of Damian Wayne.

Recently, reports surfaced that Muschietti had been fired from the adaptation but former Hollywood trade reporter turned online scooper Jeff Sneider is reporting, that according to his sources, Muschietti is still attached.

Also, just as soon as the rumor of Muschietti's firing surfaced, images of his parking spot on the Warner Bros. lot began to surface- complete with a Batmobile theme golf cart, to boot.


DC Studios co-chair James Gunn shared earlier this month that Batman was NOT the next main character to be cast in the DCU, following the addition of Milly Alcock's Supergirl.

Additionally, he stated that The Brave and the Bold does not yet have a script, an indication that the start of production on the project is currently planned for the far-off future.

When rolling out the Gods and Monsters film slate back in January 2023, here's what Gunn had to say about the DCU's Batman film.  "This is the introduction of the DCU's Batman. This is the story of Damian Wayne, who is Batman's actual son who we didn't know existed for the first eight to 10 years of his life. He was raised as a little murderer and assassin. He's a little son of a bitch. He's my favorite Robin. It's based on the Grant Morrison comic book's run, which is one of my favorite Batman runs, and we are putting that all together right now."

While fans looking forward to The Brave and the Bold may have a lengthy wait, Warner Bros. Discovery has a ton of Batman and Batman-related material coming out in the upcoming months.

The Penguin is expected to debut on Max in Q4 2024, while Todd Phillips' Joker: Folie à Deux will open in cinemas on October 4, 2024. The following year, on October 3, 2025, The Batman II is scheduled to open in North American theaters.

Despite my better judgment, I'm still going to give this a chance. DC won't be out of the woods until after this releases. Make no mistake about it, it doesn't matter how Legacy does, an underwhelming Batman will sink this thing faster than the titanic. It already happened once with the Schumacher duology.
JFerguson - 2/21/2024, 1:40 PM
@MCUKnight11 - then happened twice with BvS
Th3Batman - 2/21/2024, 1:51 PM
@MCUKnight11 - I don't think WB is going to make any decisions regarding this movie until after Legacy releases and they see its box office results. They're not going to take a risk damaging the IP again so soon after BVS, especially after just getting it back on track with Matt Reeves. In fact, I'm willing to bet this movie doesn't happen until after his trilogy wraps up. As for Schumacher, Batman Forever was a very successful movie, far more so than Batman Returns. He got the franchise back on track, they just [frick]ed it up again with Batman & Robin.

Flash was OK but compared to the Flashpoint storyline that it clearly took influence from it was pretty forgettable. I'm not gonna write the dude off yet for one mid movie.

@ModHaterSLADE - you all loved Taika Waititi after Thor 3 with them doing a very loose adaption of "Planet Hulk" during Thor's film. Couldn't stop hearing enough about it (I found it to be ok but generic) being so great.

Then, Thor 4 came out. You all hate the director now.

@lazlodaytona - Take your meds clown. You're rambling.

DCEU movies were making less than $400 million BEFORE Gunn announced he was taking over and rebooting the universe. As for this yahoo, he's off the project, there's no doubt about it.

I'd prefer someone else with a more visual style.
Spawnnn - 2/21/2024, 1:52 PM
@harryba11zack - Zack Snyder.
harryba11zack - 2/21/2024, 2:14 PM
@Spawnnn - I wouldn't mind if zack came back, just as long as he wasn't near the writing room. He still gave us the closest comic book batsuit and the best batman fight scene.
DanFlashesShirt - 2/21/2024, 4:10 PM
@Spawnnn - i think we’ve gotten plenty of Snyder’s murderous batman, thank you.
lazlodaytona - 2/21/2024, 4:55 PM
@JFerguson - dude. Supes has got some serious man-boobies going on in the top pic.
Forthas - 2/21/2024, 1:51 PM
The question is why is he still attached to direct The DCU's Brave and the Bold Batman movie? In fact why is there a Brave and the Bold Batman movie?
Spawnnn - 2/21/2024, 1:53 PM
@Forthas - I think its the best thing to do to start with an older Batman and the Batfamily, since there is already an young Reeves Batman.
Th3Batman - 2/21/2024, 1:55 PM
@Forthas - He's not, trust me on that. He was likely off the project a couple of weeks after the flash's box office results came in. Reeves has a show releasing later this year, and a movie next year. He's working on an Arkham project for Gunn, so they're likely just going to hope people forget about the brave and the bold. I honestly don't see it happening with Reeves doing so much Batman for both his universe and the DCU.

@Spawnnn - reeves batman is not the definitive batman i was hoping for.
HashTagSwagg - 2/21/2024, 1:52 PM
I like the first It film but but at the end of the day, he had Keaton Batman and did nothing with him. Find someone else who isn't so reliant on cartoon special effects.
AmazingFILMporg - 2/21/2024, 1:58 PM
Yikes. That's a huge fail 😳
lazlodaytona - 2/21/2024, 4:59 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - like when you're on the toilet and that poo feeling doesn't come to fruition. a hurting huge fail
99OPTIMISTPRIME - 2/21/2024, 2:08 PM
I guarantee, this rumor was intended to f*ck with James Gunn.🤣🤣
TheVisionary25 - 2/21/2024, 2:12 PM
I still have yet to see The Flash but I’m 50/50 on Muschietti personally since I liked the first It but the second one , not so much…

I am willing to give him a shot though and from what I have seen of his take on Keaton’s Batman , he might atleast give us the most “comic booky” live action take on the character in awhile.

Hope it turns out well!!.
MotherGooseUPus - 2/21/2024, 2:13 PM
Really hope this isnt true. The Flash was awful and IT was decent. Never saw IT 2 but heard it was dogshit. Please find someone more fit to make an important blockbuster that NEEDS to be successful
GhostDog - 2/21/2024, 2:21 PM
The WORST news
DocSpock - 2/21/2024, 2:29 PM
