‘The Brave And The Bold’: What is the upcoming DC film all about?
During a press announcement, Gunn revealed that The Brave and the Bold will introduce his favourite version of Robin. It also looks like the plot of the film will be about Batman and his son, Damian Wayne, and will be based on Grant Morrison’s comic book. The Brave and the Bold will also serve as the beginning of the Batman Family in the revamped DC Universe and will be an instalment in Chapter One: Gods and Monsters.

This film will NOT feature Robert Pattison’s Batman. It’s important to keep in mind that Matt Reeves’ Batman and Todd Phillips’ Joker and Joker: Folie à Deux take place in a different universe, which is known as DC Elseworlds, as reported by Collider.
The Brave and the Bold comics have been published in various iterations since the 1950s and have featured different characters teaming up in each issue, usually in unexpected pairings. For example, some pairings seen in these comics include Batman and Green Lantern, Batman and Flash, and Batman and Wonder Woman.
‘The Brave And The Bold’: Who will play Batman and Robin?
In all likelihood, someone new will be cast for the role of Batman in The Brave and the Bold. Besides Batman, someone new will also be cast to play Robin. Fans will have to wait for an official casting announcement to find out who will be essaying the roles of Batman and Robin in the new DC film.
‘The Brave And The Bold’: When will the film be released?
As of now, nothing has been revealed by DC Studios, including the release date or the production status, of the upcoming movie. But it looks like it will be released after Reeves’ upcoming The Batman Part II, which is set to release in October 2025.
