RUMOR: THE BATMAN Unlikely To Adapt "Under The Red Hood" But We Will See LOTS Of Other Villains

According to a new report, it's unlikely that we'll see The Dark Knight taking on Jason Todd/Red Hood in Ben Affleck's The Batman, but there's some very good villain news to make up for the bad...

Past rumours have pointed to The Batman (that's still not the official title, but really should be) being an adaptation of "Under the Red Hood", a story which saw Jason Todd return to Gotham City as a Punisher like vigilante intent on bringing down both the Dark Knight and The Joker. However, with the similarities that storyline has to Marvel's whole Bucky/The Winter Soldier situation and the fact that it's already been adapted in both an animated movie and video game, could the big screen be that tale's next destination? After all, Batman v Superman did seem to hint at that being the case! 

Well, Birth.Movies.Death reports that "Under the Red Hood" isn't the plan, but we are going to see plenty of the other members of Batman's rogues gallery in the movie which is being co-written and directed by Ben Affleck. In fact, "It's going to be crammed with Bat villains, which means that just about every major bad guy you've ever wanted to see in a movie will be in this movie. According to my sources Affleck and Geoff Johns, who has been working with him on the film, want to make the definitive Batman film. They want to tell the ultimate Batman story, and to do so they're going to bring in all the big guns. They're going to have a big, sprawling Bat universe already in place."

While many of those bad guys will no doubt make only very minor appearances, this is an interesting direction to take things in if true. Seeing Batman going up against several of his most well known villains (many of whom have yet to reach the big screen) would certainly be a lot of fun, but that whole Jason Todd storyline would make for a great movie...what do you guys think? Let us know below.
