One of the most exciting DCU movies on the way is, without a doubt, The Brave and The Bold. While we've seen almost too much Batman on our screens in recent years, it at least sounds like DC Studios and James Gunn are trying to deliver something new.
The movie will revolve around the DCU's Batman as he learns he has a young son, Damian. Just like in Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely's critically acclaimed Batman and Robin comic book series, the 10-year-old will also become his father's new sidekick, though we also anticipate seeing other members of the Bat-Family make their presence felt in this all-new Gotham City.
Earlier this week, Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo made headlines after suggesting they would like to helm this Batman reboot.
However, doing the rounds to promote Citadel, the filmmakers have now said that's the last character they're interested in bringing to the big screen.
Anthony started by saying, "The one movie we would never, ever do..." only for Joe to interject with, "...is another Batman [Laughs]."
"We love James. We adore him," the latter continued. "We support everything he's doing over there and we'd be happy to work with him at any point. It wouldn't be Batman. We usually try to think of a very offbeat or funny character and we were so tired when they asked us that question, we were like, 'We can only really think of Batman right now.'"
So, they're out of consideration!
Ben Affleck and The Flash director Andy Muschietti are among those rumoured to potentially direct The Brave and the Bold, and given how busy the Russo Brothers are running their production company AGBO, we don't think they'll be returning to the MCU or joining the DCU anytime soon.
The Brave and the Bold doesn't currently have a confirmed release date.
