How DC should stop the brave and the bold from becoming tired and old.

While the likes of Scott Snyder or Tom King’s recent runs on the Batman comic and animation like Batman: Ninja have managed to captivate the imagination of fans of the Caped Crusader, there has not been a strong live-action bat-presence since Christopher Nolan’s epic trilogy concluded in 2012. The character has obviously been seen in the more divisive Batman Vs Superman and Justice League, but with Matt Reeves currently in the process of making a new Batman film a reality this may (finally) no longer be a problem.

The Batman seen in recent films hasn't been as warmly recieved as previous big-screen incarnations of the character, most notably due to the "Martha" scene and his lack of any meaningful contribution to the Justice League in the titular film. However, thankfully (depending on your viewpoint), Reeve's film is set to be completely separate from the rest of the DCEU, giving him a fresh canvas to work on.

Yet, if the aforementioned Batman Vs Superman and Justice League are anything to go by, DC has a lot to do to win back fans of the character after the mistakes of the last two films. But with Matt Reeves on DC’s utility belt, fans can hope that the Dark Knight will rise from the last two films and have these elements to support him…
