RUMOR: Solo BATMAN Movie To Be Based On A DEATH IN THE FAMILY & UNDER THE HOOD

Warner Bros. new Batman flick here. Word is the plot will take elements from both the A Death In the Family and Under The Hood comic arcs, and that means the introduction of Jason Todd!


Following their Wonder Woman details from last week, JoBlo reckon they've sussed out the plot of the next Batman movie, which might just have Ben Affleck in the director's chair. According to the site this movie will see the cinematic debut of The Red Hood, AKA the resurrected Jason Todd, and will be based (how closely is unclear) on both A Death In The Family, which saw Todd murdered by the Joker, and Under The Hood, in which he was raised from the dead via the Lazarus pit to seek vengeance against his former mentor.

"According to our sources, the basic plotline of Affleck’s solo Batfilm is that Jason Todd has returned from the grave as the Red Hood, working in the shadows to make people think he's Batman, while making Batman look like a criminal. At the same time he leaves clues about his identity for Bruce/Batman to ultimately solve, leading to a confrontation that will involve Batman, Red Hood, and yes, The Joker, who will feature as a primary villain alongside Red Hood."


That's not all: the movie will apparently also feature Dick Grayson as Nightwing, who will team up with Batman to take on Red Hood and the Joker. Expect a Nightwing reference or two in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which may also feature a cameo from Todd. In terms of casting, JoBlo has heard that WB and co. are searching for an unknown actor for the Red Hood role, and that the character's look will be derived from his comic book and Arkham Knight video game appearances.

We'll have to take this as a rumor for now, but it does make sense given the clues from the Batman V Superman trailer: the defaced Robin statue and the mysterious "you let your family die" note that's sent to Bruce Wayne.
