Ok spoilers for Batman 81 and Knightfall

Batman 81 basically has Bruce reveal that he's been planning all this. He allowed Bane to break him, he sent Damian who pretended to be helpless, the Joker in this story is actually Clayface working for Batman etc. All this is ofcourse told not shown. Meanwhile the Batfamily (consisting of Kate and Huntress) are referred to as Damian's "brothers and sisters" and Thomas Wayne's "grandchildren" and "children"...WTF? For Tim, Damian, Cass and Duke I can understand, Babs stretches it but sure include her too but Kate and Helena? was King even trying here? They beat up Thomas who then beats the shit out of them (lol) and then drinks tea. Bane gets one page without any dialogue as Bat/Cat get ready to attack him. The origin of Gotham Girl's powers is now attributed to some super venom(why doesn't Bane use it himself?) and that's the end. This was just fan service to appease various fans and nothing more. Bane might as well not be in this story and by the looks of it he'll be taken out by Bat/Cat the next issue(vomits) and then Thomas will become the real villain. King consistently chooses to tell instead of showing and when you get down to it "City of Bane" and "Fall and the Fallen" are essentially just redone versions of the first few arcs which were already redone versions of "Knightfall". This is what King is doing, just reversing everything he writes. Dick and Jason fans should be happy they weren't here.

"TODKM Knightfall" was solid. So Azrael has been Batman for decades. His Gotham is a theocracy, he's addicted to venom and has henchmen named Torchbearer and Cardinal. Bane and Lady Shiva had a son named Tourne who has internalized the power of venom. Bane himself does not appear as he was killed by Azrael when Tourne was just a child, Shiva calls him her love(that's a first as it has never happened before in her entire history) but they are never seen together. They lead the LOA to perform a coup in Gotham. Surprisingly Bruce is not dead, he's...well you're gonna have to see it for yourself because even I cant describe what JPV turned him in to. Shiva's motivation is to complete what she started in Knightsend, Tourne wants to avenge Bane's murder. Shiva gives Bruce some nanotech and he comes back. Again I dont fully understand what Bruce becomes or what his powers even are. He basically releases a nano swarm that "absorbs" people. Its killing without killing so to speak. Tourne beats JPV and he & Shiva tell Bruce to make the city what it was. Except Bruce aint Bruce anymore lol, he absorbs them and then crucifies JPV on a Batsymbol, the end. This was a solid book, it definitely deserved more than a one shot and there was a lot of world building here. I definitely got ahead of myself thinking that Tourne would join the main DC universe and potentially encounter Damian or Cass.

Lol, they're still desperate, even with an actual Batwoman show. As cringey as Batwoman looks I will say that its existence does not infuriate me. Atleast that IS about a Batcharacter. Arrow is just flatout pathetic. Well atleast they're admitting that Batman and Deathstroke are the same(yikes). So even the idea of Deathstroke being Oliver's nemesis has been taken away from Arrow fans LMAO.

Meh, I cant even remember her from First Class and Fury Road. Absolutely zero impression. She was heavily involved in the Fantastic Beasts film but never stunned there either. So even with a script that gave her a major role she never amounted to more than passable.

But then Eiza Gonzalez of all people made it that far lol. Stellar acting skills dont seem to have been the requirement.

My only hope is that they avoid that short Frank Miller hair cut. If she's there for eye candy then atleast dont screw that up.

On a final note I cant say I would have been excited by any other choice either. I've have had enough of Catwoman.

Oh yeah lol.

So here's a preview for the first among DC's new "What If" line books. First up: Knightfall

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbr.com/exclusive-tales-dark-multiverse-knightfall-new-dc-crisis/amp/

On phone so sorry for that link. Apparantely there's a new Crisis story coming and some characters from these stories will play a role in it. Therefore, there's a legit chance of these characters getting absorbed in to main continuity. I already know about the Son of Bane's full parentage(though I haven't read the comic). He really could serve as Bane's Robin, and given who his parents are can be a proper counterpart to Damian. With the training from his parents he can be as smart, brutal and cunning as Damian but even more skilled and physically superior to boot. Still I'm getting ahead of myself.

This film's legacy will be about making critics irrelevant. There's just too many "critics" now. Every rag tag website and paper has a critic employed. All they care about is their agenda. Some of the reviews were flat out asinine.

I even learned of a case where the same critic reviewed the film twice and gave it divergent scores.

Not really imo. If Batman is your benchmark then yeah it's a bad group. Next to almost every other hero? Nope.
