Even the strongest, most intelligent superheroes have their own sidekicks. Captain America has Falcon, Rocket Raccoon and Groot are the best of friends, and Batman has Robin.
A pair of DC Comics' biggest fans took to Reddit this weekend to share some big news: they're expecting — and the birth announcement is one for the ages.
With the father — dress up as the Caped Crusader himself — sitting on a chair in deep thought about the situation he's just gotten himself into, the soon-to-be mother — who's wearing a great Batgirl costume — looks on while holding up a miniature Robin costume.
Talk about some intense baby name brainstorming sessions that are about to happen. We don't want to give anyone any crazy ideas here or anything, but some fitting names might be Grayson. Or Jason. Maybe Tim? Only time will tell.
While we wait for updates on this end, the characters these parents are dressed up in are slated to have movies released over in this next couple of years. The Batman starring Ben Affleck is slated for release in 2018 and although a Joss Whedon-helmed Batgirl movie was recently announced, a potential release date has yet to be revealed.
Before either character makes their solo DCEU debut, at least one-half of the pair will appear in this year's Justice League directed by Zack Snyder.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, and features an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds (Steppenwolf), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon), Amber Heard (Mera), Kiersey Clemons (Iris West) and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor).
DC and Warner Bros. have a full slate ahead, with Teen Titans: The Judas Contract coming first on April 4, 2017. After that it's time for Wonder Woman on June 2, 2017, followed by Justice League on November 17, 2017. The Batman is expected sometime in 2018, with The Flash debuting on March 23, 2018. Aquaman is set for October 5, 2018, and Nightwing's solo feature is due sometime in 2019.
Justice League currently enjoys a 4.14 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings, which has climbed up more than a few points since the trailer released. Let us know how excited (or not) you are for it by rating it below!
