Batman, Crazy, and Instagram: "Maybe when Zack Snyder cast me that was kind of the goal. Hopefully DC can figure this all out, and in a few years I can come back and do a Flashpoint Batman! I would love it. That would be great." -Jeffrey Dean Morgan INES RASE SHOLLD Heroic.Gateway/Instagram For those unfamiliar with Flashpoint, it was a universe-changing event that began when Barry Allen a.k.a. The Flash traveled back in time to prevent his mother from being murdered when he was a child. This wound up changing the futures of just about every major DC hero, including Batman, thanks to the ripple effect of Chaos Theory. In the Dark Knight's new timeline, it wasn't Thomas and Martha Wayne who were shot and killed by a mugger in an alley, but instead the young Bruce Wayne. This event not only lead Thomas on a path to become his own version of Gotham's famous protector, but saw Martha going completely crazy and turning into The Joker. It's worth noting that Flashpoint was just adapted on the on-going third season of the Flash television series, but because there is no on-screen Batman in the DC TV continuity, we haven't seen those elements of the comics adapted yet.

Alive, Batman, and Instagram: JUSTICE LEAGUE THE FLASHPOINT PARADOX Heroic, Gatewav/Instagram NATIONAL RNATIONA DIEG DIE G D I ONAL. INTER TERNATION lourencohanpost E G 0 D IE For the uninitiated, “Flashpoint” is a time-twisting 2011 DC Comics crossover event that was written by Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, with art by Andy Kubert and immediately preceded the New 52 initiative (which, ironically, just ended in 2016). In the story, Barry Allen wakes up in an alternate reality where his mother is still alive and he doesn’t have his powers, which means he isn’t The Flash. However, those aren’t the only changes. In this topsy-turvy world, Superman is a scrawny boy because he’s never seen the sun since the government captured him when he landed on Earth; Thomas Wayne is a ruthless version of the Batman because his son Bruce murdered and wife Martha becomes the Joker; Aquaman and Wonder Woman are at war; and Cyborg is the world’s most popular superhero — like we said, topsy turvy. The twist in the story is that Barry discovers he caused this alternate reality when he traveled back in time to save his mom from being murdered. So, Barry embarks on a quest to regain his powers and restore the timeline before Aquaman and Wonder Woman’s war destroys the planet, which is a likely possibility. While he succeeds in defeating the Reverse Flash, his attempts to fix the timeline still led to the continuity changes that were trademarks of the New 52, which rebooted the entire DC Comics universe.

Apple, Batman, and Birthday: VOLUME ONE Good evening Gothamites and I hope you all had a spectacular Sunday! This week we'll have more of our session "What's In That Utility Belt: A History of Batman Gadgets" and more discussions about the evolution of the Caped Crusader! I leave you tonight with the now iconic cover to Batman (Vol 1) 497 and Batman: Knightfall Vol 1 by one of my favorite illustrators, Kelley Jones, who is celebrating his 55th birthday today (July 23)! Known for his Batman runs in the 1990s with writer Doug Moench, Jones has worked on several non-continuity Batman series including "Batman: Dark Joker the Wild" and the Vampire Batman Elseworlds saga beginning with "Batman and Dracula: Red Rain". Both of these comics were very dark and moody, bringing the Batman comic into the horror genre. Jones drew the covers for many of the chapters of the "Batman: Knightfall" crossover storyline as well (cover presented), then became the penciler of Batman with issue 515 (1995 - 1998) and worked on such story arcs as "Contagion". Going for style and mood over realism, Jones' is known for drawing Batman's ears incredibly long, giving him a demonic look and truly bringing the fear to the character's aesthetic that the Dark Knight himself strikes into the hearts of criminals. 🦇LISTEN ON ITUNES: http:-apple.co-2tCeD4p🦇to my podcast interview with Kelley Jones discussing his decades long contributions to the Batman mythology, be sure to listen and explore this artist's creative process! Thanks for following and we'll have more History of the Batman soon! Remember Gothamites, it's all about Peace, Love and Batman! ✌🏼💙🦇🎨🎉

Batman, Future, and Jordans: NER BROS ANNOUNC ER BROSAN ES SHPOINT MOVI -IN NE DCEU #wBS SD YOFTHEBATMAN Afternoon Gothamites! Before the entire cast of "Justice League" hit the stage of Hall H during San Diego Comic Con this morning, attendees saw a sizzle reel revealing several future Extended Universe films. The reel began with the words “Where wonder awaits, where justice prevails, where good battles evil, from Gotham to Atlantis, Metropolis to Apokolips, Krypton to Themyscira and beyond, welcome to the worlds of DC.” Then several logos were shown for the following films: Shazam, Suicide Squad 2, The Batman (accompanied by Ben Affleck’s Batman), Justice League Dark, Batgirl, Green Lantern Corps (accompanied by Hal Jordan and John Stewart comic art), The Flash (accompanied by a “Flashpoint” logo) and the highly anticipated Wonder Woman 2. The Flash solo movie is reported as being influenced by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert's popular 2011 arc "Flashpoint". In this crossover event, in an effort to save his mother's life from the Reverse Flash, Barry Allen aka The Flash discovers he has changed reality and the life of his allies, including the Batman; in this timeline, it is Thomas Wayne, Bruce Wayne's father, that is the Dark Knight when his son was gunned down by a mugger. Many have speculations what "Flashpoint" could mean within this cinematic universe, in particular to the established Batman mythology. Yesterday, sources spread about Ben Affleck's Batman potentially being ushered out of the DCEU in future films. Today during the Hall H panel, Affleck stated he is thrilled to be playing the character and his excitement with working with Matt Reeves on the first solo film "The Batman". However, this doesn't set in stone Affleck's future after the first solo film and, within this continuity, Flashpoint could change the status of our current Batman, taking out Affleck. "Flashpoint" in the DCEU could also show us Thomas Wayne as Batman; Thomas Wayne debuted in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who could possibly suit up as our hero in this Flash film. What are your thoughts on the slated DCEU films, what are your hopes about Flashpoint and thoughts on Affleck's time in the DCEU? We'll have more SDCC news soon, stay tuned! 🦇🎬

Bane, Batman, and Best Friend: GHISTORMSETHEBATMAN Evening Gothamites! For Father's Day, Thomas Wayne is celebrated but we cannot forget Bruce Wayne's father figure that aided him into becoming the man and hero he is today. Created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson, Alfred Pennyworth is Bruce Wayne's dedicated butler, assistant, best friend and father figure (left panel: Lee Weeks art from Batman Secret Files and Origins 1 (October, 1997) presented). In Pre-Crisis continuity, instead of Pennyworth he was Alfred Beagle, an over-weight clean shaven World War I field medic who by his father's last request wanted to be Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson's butler. Eventually Beagle discovered the Batcave housing a wounded Batman. Beagles medic and intelligence skills were an asset, making him an automatic family member. After William Austin's role in the Batman Black and White Serial, Beagle was changed to Alfred Pennyworth in Detective Comics (Vol 1) 83 (January 1944), returning from a health resort slimmed down with a thin mustache. Alfred was killed in Detective 328 (June 1964) and years later was revived in Detective 356 (October 1966) by scientist Brandon Crawford. In Post-Crisis continuity, Alfred was part of the Wayne family since Bruce was young, being his legal guardian after Thomas and Martha Wayne's death. After this event, he has a large part of being there when Bruce makes a vow to avenge his parent's death. Alfred is there even through the hardest times of Bruce's life, such as his back-breaking experience with the villain Bane and his apparent death against Darkseid. This particular loss of his "son" can be seen in Judd Winick's Batman (Vol 1) 687 from August 2009 (right panel: Alex Ross cover to issue 686 presented), part of the Batman R.I.P series after the death of Bruce Wayne. Continuing to be at his side in The New 52 and comics - media today, we commemorate both Thomas Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth for Father's Day, raising Bruce Wayne the man and Batman the hero.
