DC fans were happy to hear that Matt Reeves' The Batman might be loosely based on A Death in the Family storyline, according to a new rumor. If true, it would see a younger Bruce Wayne on the big screen, which suggests that Ben Affleck won't be returning to play the Caped Crusader. Reports of Affleck's departure from the project have been swirling for over a year now, so that wouldn't be too much of a shock. Though, sadly, now we have a so-called 'confirmed' report that this Death of Jason Todd rumor is nothing but fake news. The death of Jason Todd would be an intriguing storyline for The Batman and would go a long way in showcasing another look into Bruce Wayne's head.

President Donald Trump first announced after the new year, in a baffling tweet, that he would hold “THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR” to honor the “Fake News Media” in “various categories.”Without offering any elaboration, Trump eventually pushed back the date of his proposed awards, and the new date he set was January 17 — which happens to be today.Since announcing them, the White House has given little details as to what the “Fake News Awards” will consist of, and hasn’t really confirmed that the awards are actually going to take place.That led your humble reporters at Mediaite to assume that Trump was going to barrel through another self-imposed deadline and push off his awards off indefinitely — a wise move considering his White House is currently entrenched in a controversy of shithole proportions. But alas, the Trump White House is not typically known for doing the wise thing.Deputy Press … [Read more...] about So, Are Trump’s Fake News Awards Actually Happening?
