DC’s newest animated feature is one I wish I’d read in graphic novel form. However, the only time I’ve encountered the Elite, as they refer to themselves, were as members of the Justice League Elite. Manchester Black is leader of the Elite, but the JLE was headed by his sister Vera Black. Both of whom appear in this animated film.

Bat-Book Delays is back! And with the usual culprits. Most important would be the delays to 'Batman: Arkham City' so I'll cover those first.

Batman-News.com has posted up some information that shows that filming for The Dark Knight Rises may be moving to the UK next. Here is what they had to say.
I’ve received word from multiple sources that The Dark Knight Rises will be filming next week on St. John Street in London. The shoot will last about four days, from May 16th until the 20th. Local businesses in the area have been told that they’ll hear gunshots during this time. It’s likely that they’ll film at The Farmiloe Building on St. John Street — this was used as the Gotham…

So this does…

Today the internet was taken by storm by a windshield repairman presumably in England. Uh…? What?

The person who fixed the windshield happens to have a Twitter account and posted up this pic.
This was supposedly taken within the last day or two at a location where The Dark Knight Rises will be shooting. We…

This seems to be the first image we have of the British cast for Batman Live with their costumes, taken from 'The Evening Standard' newspaper in England- I say British cast because I believe the cast will change for every country, maybe even more regularly in large countries like America. There's also a little more about what to expect in the show but nothing really new.
