BATMAN RUMOR ALERT! BATMAN RUMOR ALERT!

Wake up, everybody! Wipe the sleep out of your face! Drink your coffee really fast, no matter how hot or cold it might be, because we’ve got a Batman rumor to share! WEEOOOWEEOOWEEOOO!* Now that we’ve all seen The Dark Knight Rises and are ready for a new Batman franchise some of us may have a few questions about it, like “How are they going to do it?” And “When is it going to come out?” And “Soon?” And “How soon?” And “Like YEARS or like…?” I won’t pretend like anyone will ever be satisfied until there is a new Batman movie in front of our faces, but hopefully this HOT HOT RUMOR, from Batman-On-Film obviously, will help:

I received a bit of intel here recently that involves the Batman on film reboot and the inevitable JUSTICE LEAGUE film.

It’s looking as a live-action JUSTICE LEAGUE film — the one currently being penned by Will Beall for Warner Bros. — just might be the studio’s first big, DC Comics-based tent pole movie after 2013’s MAN OF STEEL. This JL film would, possibly, hit theaters Summer 2015. So, exactly WHAT does this have to do with BATMAN REBOOTED? Read on…

Said reboot will come after the JL film, not before. Therefore, the new cinematic Batman will be introduced in the JL film as opposed to a solo film. This would, according to my industry “FOBOF,” assure the new Batman film series will be part of a “DC Cinematic Universe.”

AHHHHHHHHH! Did that rumor help or hurt, do you think? Are you too excited now? Less excited? Nervous? Still asleep? GUYS! Who is going to play Batman? RYAN GOSLING? Oh my god oh my god. Is there a girl in Justice League? Who’s going to play the girl? Do you think it will be Elizabeth Olsen? Is Joseph Gordon-Levitt going to be in it? What kind of bomb are they going to have to get rid of at the end, do you think? Hello? ANYONE? (Via SlashFilm.)
