Especially since Turner is...CLEARLY supposed to be Dick Grayson, like god damn they could use ALL those other canon DC characters, but DC still embargoed Dick Grayson?I don't understand making some rando be Bruce's adopted kid, when he's already got so many to choose from. Why not Tim? Or Terry? Or make Carrie the main character? The only positive thing I can say about that trailer is "Misha Collins as Harvey Dent". Otherwise... ugh. Pass.
Poor game devs, having to deal with the confusion. The Gotham Knights game looks infinitely better just from a story perspective.
For a long time the stance from DC was "we can't have the same character in both a movie and a TV series, because people will get confused" and now they're having a game and a TV series with the exact same name, but almost nothing in common, debuting in the same year...
It feels like a random teen mystery show they slapped the DC label on.I was kinda hoping for another show like Gotham. But nope. This is just milking the Batman franchise for all it's got. Some WB exec must have watched a movie from Disney's Descendants series and was like "Hey. We could do that too."
They also have the same premise in common, of "Batman is dead, his kids need to take over." Which is what is truly bizarre about this. When I first heard about this show, I actually thought this was a tie-in series for the video game, with Dick, Barbara, Jason, and Tim. (Then I read the article and had a massive let down). And now people are going to think the game is a tie-in to the show!For a long time the stance from DC was "we can't have the same character in both a movie and a TV series, because people will get confused" and now they're having a game and a TV series with the exact same name, but almost nothing in common, debuting in the same year...
I do not understand what the fuck DC is doing these days.
Was the suggestion after that It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World ?I find it interesting that the YouTube algorithm immediately suggests Tora! Tora! Tora! after watching this, as though the thing that most defines my taste in movies/videos is how many times the same word repeats itself in the title.
