As long as they’re selling Batman, they should throw in Batgirl too. After all, it would make more than zero money that way.
A Batman show , rather than shows based around every single person in Gotham EXCEPT Batman?? that’ll never catch on...
Seeing how Zaslav’s start to the new DiscoBros regime is…something, your mom may be on to something.
If it’s Hulu, that would mean we get on Disney+ here in Canada, which would a) be hilarious and b) get a bunch of people like my mom asking when Batman’s gonna join the Avengers.
I think this is #2. He went to rehab and then made that movie about his childhood as an actor and his messed up relationship with his dad. And then the Twigs stuff came out, and he’s back at square one.
For those keeping track at home, that makes three unrelated projects that Peters tried to shoehorn a giant mechanical spider into, one of which succeeded.
I’m glad he’s not in active use because he would have kept on abusing others, but fuck, the “self enlightened” brand of toxic masculinity that is happening lately is some deep level of delusion.
