    Hello Andy and Jaime,

    I’m a somewhat longtime listener of the show (long enough to miss Brian), and I love all the episodes that you two have done. I really appreciate you always taking the time to share your thoughts with your Bat-listeners.

    Really I just have three thoughts I want to get out there.

    First of all, let’s talk about dead Robin. I am with you guys on this one, I’m a huge Dick Grayson fan and I will lose it if he is dead in the DCEU. I just think it’s a shame to close off the Nightwing route. Jett from the Batman on Film podcast says that Nightwing was in the original Goyer script of BvS and now he’s not in the movie. Do you think that could have any bearing on which Robin is dead?

    Second, you guys were discussing the possibility of Superman being controlled by Lex Luthor. I agree with you in that it’s probably not red kryptonite or anything like that. But how about good old blackmail? What if Lex has someone that superman loves and he tells him to take out Batman? I’d love to hear your thoughts on that.

    Last thing, and I actually think this was discussed on Holy Batcast, it has to do with Affleck and Geoff Johns writing the solo Batman movie. I am so relieved to hear someone else (Andy) voice a concern about Geoff Johns writing Batman. In everything I’ve ever read by him, and don’t get me wrong, I really have liked the majority of his stuff, I have never been very satisfied by his characterization of Batman. He just makes him a little too crabby, stubborn, and mistake prone for me. Maybe I’m just biased, but I like it when Batman is infallible:)

    Anyway, thanks for hearing me out guys, and one last thought. If Brian is actually lost somewhere wearing a Music Meister costume, consider me as a replacement host:)

    Hey Andy P!
    Brian here, checking in from the Corto Maltese and whistling away on my Panflute. It’s a rough gig but somebody’s gotta do it!!
    Just wanted to thank you for the shout out. Believe me, I miss hanging with the guys and talkin about the Bat! And I miss listeners like you too with all your great feedback and questions. So thanks for remembering and for being a longtime listener. I tune in each and every week myself and I always crack up at the antics of the guys. I still see and talk with them daily about all the cool things happening. Such a great time to be a fan!! So, thanks Andy P for being a part of it.
    And to Andy and Jaime who continue to carry the bat-torch for everyone who belong to the TBU, thanks guys for always killin it here on the TBU flagship show!
    Something to discuss…one of the topics that comes up frequently in our circles.
    What would you like to see from the new Geoff John/Ben Affleck Batman series?? Prequel? Sequel to BvS? Something post-Justice League? Or something else entirely??

    See you tomorrow for comics and tacos!!
