THE FANBOY: ‘New BIRDS OF PREY Trailer, FLASHPOINT(?!), And All Things THE BATMAN’
This week’s episode is all DC Comics, all the time. The Fanboy host Mario-Francisco Robles breaks down his thoughts on the latest trailer for Cathy Yan’s BIRDS OF PREY before launching into a bunch more DC goodness. Next on deck? Andy Muschietti’s apparent confirmation that his The Flash movie with Ezra Miller will adapt the ballyhooed Flashpoint storyline, and what that could mean for the entire cinematic DC landscape. Down the rabbit hole he goes with a way for DC to reconcile the lack of a Batman in the world occupied by The Flash.
From there he talks all things Dark Knight, with Matt Reeve’s The Batman (finally) beginning principal photography. MFR recaps some of the crazy rumor mill that’s surrounded this production since it first was uttered into existence in 2014. He shares thoughts and insights gleaned from the set photos that have hit the net in recent days, and dishes on rumors that the film will draw inspiration from things like Batman: The Animated Series, The Long Halloween, and Lee Bermejo’s Batsuit design.
He concludes with some analysis on what Walter Hamada and DC Entertainment’s approach to the universe seems to (continue) to be, and how it’s really starting to pay off- creating a landscape that may lead to some very special movies in the future.
