Last week, Bleeding Cool heard a rumour that Joel Schumacher was writing a Batman comic book with artist Dustin Nguyen, remaking his three Batman films. (Two made, one planned) into a 12 issue comic book. As rumours go it was well sourced, with a solid line of provenance and it fitted in with recent changes in Schumacher's behaviour regarding the films. So we ran it.
Then on Sunday, Joel Schumacher expressed bemusement at the entire idea at the London Screenwriter's Festival. Dashed, we reported his denial.
And that's when things got really weird. Overnight we then heard from a number of people that, yes, they'd heard the same from people at DC Comics. From others that DC's PR folk was being really cagey. And that *something* like this is very much on the cards – even if they are cards being held closely to Joel Schumacher's chest.
As usual I may have blundered into something without seeing the whole picture. What, we'll find in many months time.
