“The Brave and the Bold” will not be related to 2022’s “The Batman,” which brought Robert Pattinson from vampire to vigilante. Instead, it will be yet another reboot of the Caped Crusader, this time adapting Grant Morrison’s beloved comics run of the same title. The film will mark the return of Robin to the silver screen for the first time since 1997’s “Batman and Robin.” In the comics, we’re dealing with the Damian Wayne version of Robin, so that’s expected in the movie as well. It might also be the first time we see a live-action Dick Grayson Batman — if the comics are anything to go by.
According to Deadline, “The Brave and the Bold” is still in early production, so it makes sense that “Welcome to Derry” would be the priority for Warner Bros. Discovery. In the meantime, those looking for Gotham-centric hijinks can still look forward to “The Penguin” series, also coming to Max, which spins off from Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” with Colin Farrell reprising his prosthetics-heavy role as the Gothamite crime lord. Actor Michael Kelly, who also plays a role on the series, revealed that he’d been a day away from wrapping on “The Penguin” when the strike began.
