joss whedon potentially being the first person to define the characterization of dceu dick grayson sounds like a literal nightmare to be perfectly honest… dick is exactly the kind of character joss would LOVE to get his grubby little hands on and exactly the kind of character he’d fucking ruin and i just cant deal with that

“Warner Bros. is a more director-driven studio. Period. The end. More than any other studio you’re ever going to work at. Just look at the roster of world class filmmakers that have worked at Warner Bros and made it their home. Warner Bros is a director-driven studio, and that’s exactly how they are operating these movies.”

“They still want to build a universe, and that’s why it takes a lot of time and a lot of people banging their heads together trying to figure out what to do. Because it’s hard. It’s hard to get all these people, and all these egos, and all this stuff in one place and get it all to work out. But they are committed to that, and that’s what’s amazing about working with Jon [Berg] and Geoff [Johns]. They’re real partners, and so is everyone at the Warner Bros. family.”

*Put this on my effing tombstone*

Chris McKay’s (The Lego Batman Movie Director) tweets regarding the “Bruce and Barbara relationship” in the Lego Batman Movie…

He hates BruceBabs too.

His replied tweets basically says that the movie would not feature them as a couple, and the trailer is not what it appears to be.

I’m going to take his words (through this tweets) for it, for now. 

(Or I’m cursing you as I’ve damned Timm in the pits of terrible writers with his shitty “forced couples” crap.)
