Batman leaves Gotham City

The relationship between Batman and Gotham City is one of the most important and interesting aspects of the character, who has always been strongly linked to his city. But it looks like the Bat could leave its hometown in the new Shadows of the Bat event, coming in 2022.

Shadows of the Bat: Batman will leave Gotham City

According to anticipations of the DC releases scheduled in the United States for November 2021, Batman will leave Gotham City, leaving it to his friends and allies to protect it. This is just the latest of the upheavals taking place in Bruce Wayne's life, having recently lost all of his family possessions and possessions following Joker War.

The relationship between the hero and the city of Gotham has often been at the center of comic stories, but not only: some examples are Batman Gotham by Gaslight, Batman Death by Design and the video game series dedicated to the Arkham franchise or the upcoming Batman Gotham Knights.

Batman's departure from Gotham City is the latest event to take place within the Fear State initiative, whose resolution will materialize in Batman: Fear State: Omega # 1, out in America on November 30th. The description of the register refers to the removal, but assuming that the city will not remain without heroes to protect it. The announcement could refer to the team made up of old and new Robins that will appear in a new publication coming in the coming months.

These would seem to be the prerequisites for a new event dedicated to Batman arriving in 2022, as on the same day as the release of Batman: Fear State: Omega # 1, Detective Comics 2021 Annual will also be released in American comics # 1, described as a prequel to the event that is supposed to take place on the same header. While Batman's friends and allies will have to regroup to fill the void left by Bruce Wayne, Gotham City will also face changes, such as the construction of the Arkham Tower following the destruction of Arkham Asylum.

Almost ironically, Batman's departure from Gotham City coincides with that of his writer, James Tynion IV, who has decided to take a break from the world of superhero comics to focus on his own personal projects. Tynion IV and many other authors would find a new opportunity on the Substack online newslettering platform.

Watch: Harley Quinn Vs. Joker Fan-Made Trailer Teases A Clown Showdown

Following the critical (if not so much commercial) success of The Suicide Squad, DC fans are desperate to know where Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will go from here. That’s currently unclear, but there are a couple of projects that have been stuck in development for years and could fit the bill. James Gunn has thrown doubt on Gotham City Sirens happening anytime soon, though, so that leaves Harley Quin vs. the Joker as one possibility.

And this fan-made trailer for the movie concept teases that it could be an epic showdown of the clowns if it ever became a reality. Binge Watch This devised this trailer, which pitches Robbie’s Harley and Jared Leto’s Joker tearing up Gotham City as they engage in an action-charged battle against each other and other villains from Batman’s rogues gallery. Though this promo only repurposes footage from the duo’s previous appearances, it’s enough to convince us that it could make a great follow-up to The Suicide Squad.

Harley Quinn vs. the Joker was announced way back in 2017, and over the years we’ve received the odd update that tells us it’s still on the table despite not being in active development. This is Us writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa remain attached to write and direct the film, which would actually be pitched as a comedy. Seeing as Zack Snyder’s Justice League brought back Leto’s Joker earlier this year, the movie isn’t as unlikely to materialize as it once was.

Robbie has revealed that she’s ready to return to her beloved role, while Gunn’s said that he and the Australian star have discussed working together again. The actress generally seems keen to pair her character up with other female DC icons, like Poison Ivy or Batgirl, however, so that’s maybe a mark against a vs. Joker movie happening. Unless they rename it Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy and Batgirl vs the Joker. That could work.

Catch Robbie’s Harley Quin in The Suicide Squad, in theaters and on HBO Max now.
