COMIC BOOK WEDNESDAY #GayNrd‘s Daily round-up of news, art, and ephemera from the all corners of the interwebz and social media for Wednesday May 12, 2021. Art above Bat Manga *Robert Pattinson edition. The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022.

A LEAKED PROMO image of Pattison as Batman circulated Twitter Wednesday. Heroic Hollywood: Thanks to a gritty trailer set to Nirvana’s “Something In The Way” and a highly qualified cast in tow, The Batman is set to be one of DC’s more unique solo offerings. Branched off of Ben Affleck’s canceled solo Batman picture, Robert Pattinson’s take on The Dark Knight will see the character in his second year of crime-fighting, taking on the likes of The Riddler, Catwoman Carmine Falcone, and the Penguin. Unfortunately, fans haven’t gotten a solid look at Pattinson’s Batman since last summer’s trailer. However, a brand new photo of The Dark Knight has made its way online, providing fans a great new look at The Caped Crusader.

PHOTO GALLERY Are they lit by the beautiful early evening sunset of late spring or indicative of doomsday hellscapes? Either way it’s all part of the milieu captured in photographer Austin Giordano’s mysterious urban landscape. Follow him on Instagram.

Giordano loves the fractals of the fern leaves.

BROKEN TRUST The CW dropped the new Superman & Lois trailer. Hopefully this show can continue to bring the fractured Superman fanbase together.

THE DARK TRUTH about American toothaches.

COMIC BOOK PRIDE Artist Phil Jimenez reveals another of his fabulous images for Pride month. Jimenez: “I see @marvel has been releasing more of my variant covers for June’s #LGBTQ #pride🌈event! So here I’m sharing the original art for that Moondragon — and it’s safe to say she was more than a little influenced by my time with the fabulous @bouletbrothers on @bouletbrothersdragula!”

WHAT IF? James Tynion IV talked about his pitched 2014 Nightwing series set after Forever-Evil on Twitter. If you’ll recall, at the end of the mini-series, Dick Grayson was dead or perceived so and would return and act in secret as an agent of Spyral in Grayson..

MEME OF THE DAY comes from The Breakfast Club’s host Charlamagne Tha God Man who reminds: “@cutty8o3 stupid. 😂 This why we thought 28 was old when we were teens…….”

WHAT IF This Spider-Man: No Way Home Spoiler Is True …

The Mary Sue: So is this true? Are we really going to get two versions of the point in the movie? Well, first they’d have to stop trying to lie to all of us about Maguire and Garfield. The issue with No Way Home is that everyone is trying to keep things secret as if we don’t all know that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire are almost definitely in this movie. (I say almost because if I’m wrong, I do not want to be yelled at, but like come on.)

ADVICE WE DIDN’T KNOW WE NEEDED George M. Johnson, author of the young adult bestseller All Boys Aren’t Blue, says of all things that spark negativity, “Stop holding onto stuff! Purge the sh**!!!” #Blacktiktok #fyp #foryou #foryou #foryourpage #foryoupage #fypage

PROUD FAMILY REBOOT  OUT Magazine:  If you watched Proud Family growing up — you know the cartoon that Destiny’s Child and Solange Knowles did the theme song for — we have some news that you probably didn’t see coming. Zachary Quinto and Billy Porter are joining in the fold as a pair of gay parents.

The Proud Family will be revived in the new series The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, set for Disney+. The series is bringing back the original cast and apparently a few new names. Among the newbies: Quinto and Porter who are set to play Barry Leibowitz-Jenkins and Randall Leibovitz-Jenkins respectively. They will pose as the adoptive parents to the 14-year-old Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins, set to be voiced by Keke Palmer.

LITERARY LEGERDEMAIN The latest issue of WIRED tells the story of Gareb Shamus, the man who founded Wizard Magazine.

GRADUATED Jordan Steffy has finally graduated from high school! Steffy, you may recall, was celebrated and stanned by the LGBT community around the globe for retaliating against the bully who called him a “f***ing faggot” in 2019.

Jordan took a swing, warning: “Don’t call me a fucking faggot.”

It never gets old. He writes on IG in his graduation cap and gown: “Here’s to 2021 💫 finally done. ✅”

REBUTTAL to the Reddit user who asked if Justice League Detroit “is the lamest iteration of the JLA?” from Legends #1, drawn by John Byrne. The lamest? We argue perhaps the greatest! #GayNrd‘s Dekker Dreyer says, “If [Marvel Studio head] Kevin Feige was in charge of the DC movies we’d already be looking forward to Bwana Beast 2 this Summer, not rebooting Batman again.”
