THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD Gets Disappointing Update As Another Actor Reveals Failed SUPERMAN: LEGACY Audition THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD Gets Disappointing Update As Another Actor Reveals Failed SUPERMAN: LEGACY Audition

DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn has shared a rather disheartening update about where things stand with The Brave and the Bold, while another actor has revealed they failed to land a role in Superman: Legacy.

The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes slowed down DC Studios' momentum, but Creature Commandos is deep in production and cameras are still expected to begin rolling on Superman: Legacy early next year. 

However, those of you excited for The Brave and the Bold will need to exercise patience. Matt Reeves' The Batman II is still on track to be released in 2025, but the DCU's Caped Crusader will be making his debut - alongside Robin - a little further down the line based on a new update from DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn. 

Responding to a fan on Instagram asking about a possible Bruce Wayne casting announcement, the filmmaker said, "No. We don't even have a script yet." 

It's still very early days for the movie and it wouldn't be surprising if the movie doesn't swoop into theaters until 2027 at this rate. Director Andy Muschietti, whom Gunn hired after being impressed by his work on The Flash, is thought to be focusing on It TV series Welcome to Derry, so patience will indeed be key. 

This also means any casting rumours you see regarding the Dark Knight are almost certainly inaccurate.

Who Could Play Batman In The DCU

Talking back in January about DC Studios' plans for The Brave and the Bold, Gunn said: "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."

DC Studios co-CEO Peter Safran added, "And this is obviously a feature film, and it's going to feature other members of the extended 'Bat-family', just because we feel like they've been left out of the Batman stories in the theater for far too long."

In other DCU news, Cocaine Bear and Obi-Wan Kenobi star O'Shea Jackson Jr. has confirmed he also unsuccessfully auditioned for a role in Superman: Legacy. He didn't reveal which character he tried out for but confirmed it wasn't Superman.

To me? No worries about The Brave and the Bold. With the Penguin series and The Batman II coming out soon, there's the chance of Batman fatigue. Make some space between those projects and TBATB.

BBATB cross over with Scooby-Doo please
emeraldtaurus - 11/19/2023, 8:14 AM
All BS ! They know that everyone wants The Batman 2 and Penguin so there's no urgency for this, plus if I had to guess I'd say the Batman 2 will be the last of the Matt Reeves Batman, they'll probably leave that one alone after that because they don't want it turning all "Joel Schumacer" .
Th3Batman - 11/19/2023, 8:25 AM
@emeraldtaurus - Gunn already said The Batman will be a trilogy, as has Robert Pattinson.
emeraldtaurus - 11/19/2023, 9:19 AM
@Th3Batman - They say alot things dude !?!
Th3Batman - 11/19/2023, 9:49 AM
@emeraldtaurus - If the movie is successful, especially if it crosses a billion, there's no reason to end it at II.
emeraldtaurus - 11/20/2023, 7:19 AM
@Th3Batman - yeah but will Matt Reeves do a third one ? That's the big question.
Th3Batman - 11/20/2023, 9:46 AM
@emeraldtaurus - He already said he had a trilogy planned.
WEAPONXOXOXO - 11/19/2023, 8:22 AM
It's okay. Do it right. In the mean time we have all these great Marvel movies to look forward to.

TheVisionary25 - 11/19/2023, 8:25 AM
Why do I get the feeling O Shea tried out for Jimmy Olsen?.

SimplyAz - 11/19/2023, 9:26 AM
@TheVisionary25 -

I was thing maybe Mr Terrific

TheVisionary25 - 11/19/2023, 12:35 PM
@SimplyAz - oh , more likely haha.
Th3Batman - 11/19/2023, 8:26 AM
I think it's safe to say we won't get it until after Reeves has completed his trilogy. There's no financial sense in having two series based on your most popular character going up against one another.
AmazingFILMporg - 11/19/2023, 9:19 AM
@Th3Batman -

So gunns Batman won't be introduced until 2028 at the earliest 🤣....

I don't think his universe will last that long to be honest.....
Th3Batman - 11/19/2023, 9:48 AM
@AmazingFILMporg - I also don't think this universe will last that long, but 2028 seems early considering that's likely when The Batman III will release. I think 2029 or 2030 is more likely.

I’m glad they’re taking their time. We’re almost halfway through a current Batman trilogy. It might help with the competition, but BATB could also get overshadowed by the GA.

"We don't even have a script yet.

Wait...the previous WB/DCEU movies had SCRIPTS?

bkmeijer1 - 11/19/2023, 8:42 AM
Don't mind it they don't even have a script yet. Don't expect this movie any earlier than 2026, so there's no rush
TheLight - 11/19/2023, 8:43 AM
Well when casting does happen I vouch for Tom Brittney to don the cape and cowl.

Feralwookiee - 11/19/2023, 11:05 AM
@TheLight - I'm pretty sure I saw this guy waiting at a bus stop the other day.
TheLight - 11/19/2023, 11:22 AM
@Feralwookiee - Funny. The other day I saw him on his bike and he said hey😂.

Feralwookiee - 11/19/2023, 12:01 PM
@TheLight - Dude gets around.
Waifuslayer - 11/19/2023, 12:25 PM
@TheLight - lmfao, who?!
Forthas - 11/19/2023, 8:51 AM
Sounds like Brave and the Bold may be having trouble attracting a writer...perhaps for fear it turns into a tax write off.

I will bet anything that they are thinking twice about Andy Muscietti.

James Mangold should slow walk any development of his work until the hierarchy of power changes again next year.
JohnPain - 11/19/2023, 8:55 AM
@Forthas -

The Writer gets paid anyway
Forthas - 11/19/2023, 8:59 AM
@JohnPain - I think their preference is to get paid AND show off there work. Just getting paid to write a script that gets shelved means they do not benefit from the credit for doing so. They might as well stick to writing novels of that is the case.
MarvelZombie616 - 11/19/2023, 10:14 AM
Nobody wants "The Brave and the Bold", that is a title that won't sell with the general audience.

People want "The Batman: Part 2" in 2025 and "The Batman: Part 3" in 2028.

BillyBatson1000 - 11/19/2023, 10:41 AM
Superman: Leg.

Can't wait.

@MadThanos - As IF!!!
ComicFan523 - 11/19/2023, 10:45 AM
I'm fine with waiting so long as they get everything right, it would be cool to see the entire Bat Family onscreen finally. I know I'm in the vast minority but I hope they eventually make an adaptation of the Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul, it's my favorite Batman story from the Grant Morrison era and one of my favorite comic book storylines in general.
bobevanz - 11/19/2023, 11:05 AM
I'll wait for MyTimeToShineHello to confirm this 🤡
Godzilla2000Zer - 11/19/2023, 11:35 AM
What's disappointing about it that movie won't come out until 2026 or 2027 it's gonna be awhile
DocSpock - 11/19/2023, 11:52 AM

The only disappointing thing is that Andy MooseSh!tty is still attached to this movie.

They canNOT let that happen.

this whole new dcu thing is really going well so far

I had forgotten about Welcome to Derry getting in the way.

Gunn's favourite characters really have to be SoBs to be in his list, is what I'm starting to realize.
HulkisHoly - 11/20/2023, 3:35 PM
Personally I’m excited for both The Batman part II and BATB. They both are going in different directions for the character and I’m excited to finally see the Bat Family get the attention and depth they deserve.
