Yesterday, I mentioned how awesome it would be if DC/Warner Bros. and HBO hooked up to create a Batman series that was faithful to the letter of the source material.  Just imagine, if you will, this sequence from Batman #425 as a live action scene.


I think I sense a new Major Spoilers meme forming:  Batman vs. HBO, Everyone Wins!

Yeah, I’m gonna keep dreaming until the day I put in charge of those decisions.

    Showtime + Batman …Even better.

    True, but HBO is already owned by Time/Warner, which keeps everything in the family. Then again, Showtime is owned by CBS, which worked with WB to create the CW.

    So where does taking the time to unhook a car battery for the express purpose of throwing it at a perp rate on the Bat-Dickishness Scale?

    Considering he didn’t take the time to unhook the battery, I’d say his rating is at a low 1 or 2 rating.

    Think how much more inspirational that sequence would be had Mike DeCarlo not shat upon it.

    You are like the Stephen Hawking of televison :D
    The what with the whosits… Wait i think i figured out your lingo…

    HBO also run some Showtime shows with a bit of censorship so they do have a relationship.
    In reality I just want to see what the Dexter people could do with a Gothamian setting not even Batman. Imagine GC as a TV show, it almost is already. HBO would be good too (They do “The SHIELD” right?)
