Rumours are swirling that the DCEU reboot of Batman will start with the Red Hood story line. If true, it would be awesome!

Here are the bullet points via Screenrant. Highlight it if you want to be potentially spoiled.
  • Red Hood is still a priority character for DC/WB.
  • The storyline will involve Jason Todd (former Robin) returning from the dead and framing Batman as a crazed vigilante who’s finally snapped. Red Hood will (as in animated and comic book versions) use his assault on Gotham’s underworld to try and draw Batman and the Joker into a showdown. (Yes, Joker will be a major player in the film).
  • Jason Todd will be the second Robin; Dick Grayson is the first and will allegedly be referenced as Nightwing in Batman v Superman. Nightwing won’t actually appaer onscreen until this Batman solo film.
  • The Batman Solo Film will essentially be the DCEU version of Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Red Hood = Winter Soldier).
  • Batman v Superman and/or Suicide Squad could have a Red Hood cameo.
This rumor raises a lot of intriguing possibilities – especially when taken into consideration with what we know so far about these DC movies:
  • If Under the Red Hood is indeed the storyline for this Batman solo film, it confirms what Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad trailers have implied about this new continuity for the Dark Knight: namely that the movies are incorporating the “Death in the Family” comic storyline where Joker beating Jason Todd to death (only for the former Robin to later be resurrected) leaves Batman traumatized – and maybe explains why Leto’s Joker needed those new silver teeth he sports.
  • While Suicide Squad will introduce him, and Batman v Superman will feature him in cameo, Leto’s Joker is really being primed for this Batman solo movie.
  • The proposed storyline adds a nice detective story element to the proceedings – an important aspect of the character that we haven’t seen fully explored in live-action Batman films to date.
  • It’s a nice Noir action piece in set in a very specific locale – basically the formula Ben Affleck used to make successful films out of Gone Baby Gone and The Town.

My favourite animated DC movie is Under The Red Hood, so I'll be looking forward to this.

Just take the animated movie, and make it live action.

Bam! A billion dollars, you're welcome.

If Affleck is making the movie, then it's gonna be good.
I knew Snyder would mess up BvS.

Maybe he'll get to keep a Batsuit this time.
