People are going crazy over the new Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer. I’m less than enthused. I also thought Man of Steel was a steaming piece of Bizarro stool so I’m a little jaded.
Batman will be on the screen a bunch in the coming months with BVS and then Suicide Squad and then The Batman and possibly a spot on the next Dancing With The Stars. The caped crusader will even be busy in the world of comic books, crossing over to team up with…ugh, I can’t even type it.
The idea of Batman teaming up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is no longer the stuff of fan fiction and action figure roleplaying. That crossover is becoming a reality this year as DC Comics and IDW Publishing join forces for a comic called Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
As revealed at IDW’s SDCC panel yesterday, the mini-series will see Krang transport the Turtles and Shredder to Gotham City in hopes of ridding himself of his enemies for good. As you’d expect, it’s not long before the Turtles meet up with Batman and battle a legion of Gotham villains in their quest to return home. With luck, they’ll even convince Bats to scarf some pizza and dance to “Ninja Rap.”
I’m just giving up on all this stuff. I’ll pretend it’s old age when it’s honestly more “WHAT THE FUCK?!?!” If this idea becomes a feature film, I’m burning my Batman underwear while still wearing it.
