As tales of behind-the-scene chaos continue to pour out of Warner Bros. Discovery, The Batman 2 is reportedly no longer a safe bet. While the film is in active development, it has not been officially greenlit and could never see the light of the day as the company “resets” its DC Comics live-action properties. On that note, if you’re especially attached to Doom Patrol and/or Titans, I am so, so sorry. (Variety)

Meanwhile, a new THR report claims that WBD is making contingency plans for The Flash in light of Ezra Miller’s non-stop scandals. However, that flies in the face of a report from yesterday that revealed — wait for it — Miller filmed new scenes for The Flash just this summer. As in very recently. The word around town is that the film is killing it in test screenings, which explains WBD’s ongoing strategy of pretending everything is fine. They smell money, and it’s going to be very interesting to see how far Miller has to go before something gives. (THR)

In the first four weeks of CBR14 Bingo, there are 30 players, 186 reviews, 16 bingos and 1 completed card. There are still 12 weeks left - plenty of time to join the fun and reduce that TBR (and then build it back up again after reading reviews). What are you doing as the end of summer approaches?
