Now, on with this weekend's mailbag...

JETT SAYS: A straight-up adaptation? No. I do think it's possible that parts of that story could be included in Affleck's solo Batman film. Not so much Jason Todd coming back from the dead, but The Joker killing Jason Todd.

(And yes, I know this picture is from "A Death in the Family.")

What are your thoughts on the Green Lantern movie possibly focusing on more than one Green Lantern?

JETT SAYS: Chance, I’m not a big Green Lantern guy, so it really doesn’t matter to me. They certainly need to do something different this time, so a “Green Lantern Corps” type of film makes sense. Honestly, after the flop of GREEN LANTERN with Ryan Reynolds (which wasn’t his fault at all), I’m surprised that Warner Bros. would even go back to the Oa well.

Given the rumors that have popped up this week about a solo Batman movie as soon as 2018, do you think we will get an announcement for such movie at this year's San Diego Comic Con?

JETT SAYS: I do not believe that there will be an announcement of such a film and I also don’t buy the 2018 release date for the solo Batfleck Batflick. I think that Warner Bros. at SDCC ’15 will be almost totally about BATMAN v SUPERMAN.

Of all the unmade Batman movies between BATMAN AND ROBIN and BATMAN BEGINS, which one sounded best to you?

JETT SAYS: Hmm…BATMAN UNCHAINED (referred to for years as BATMAN TRIUMPHANT) had a very interesting premise. The idea of Batman having a Scarecrow fear toxin-induced hallucination in which he is put on trial by the Bat-villains (with cameos by the actors who played villains in the previous Batman films) is pretty cool. Therefore, I’d go with UNCHAINED as the unmade Batman film I’d like to have seen.

Do you think we'll ever see a Batman film where Two-Face is the main villain?

JETT SAYS: I don’t see why that’s not at least a possibility. Of course, Two Face – and let’s include Harvey Dent as well – had pretty big roles in BATMAN FOREVER and THE DARK KNIGHT – especially the latter.

Hey Bill. Do you think that the solo superhero films of the DCCU (at least the ones that we know are happening) will take place before the events of BATMAN v SUPERMAN and the two JUSTICE LEAGUE films?

JETT SAYS: I don’t know for sure, but I think it’s certainly possible – and I’m OK with that it turns out that way.

Who is your pic for Terry in a live-action BATMAN BEYOND?

JETT SAYS: David Hasslehoff.

Hi Bill. Since the Justice League movies are going to be released 2 years apart, is there a chance they could be separate stories as opposed to one story divided up?

JETT SAYS: Well, they’re titled PART 1 and PART 2, so I suspect the core story will carry over from the first film to the second.

Besides the endings to the movies, What are some of your top moments from “The Dark Knight Trilogy?”

JETT SAYS: Wow…so many. The docks scene in BATMAN BEGINS, the interrogation scene in THE DARK KNIGHT, and climbing out of the pit in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. That’s one from each off the top of my head; but there are other scenes I love just as much.

What are the chances of a BATMAN BEYOND movie? Do you think Terry will ever return to comics either in main DCU or alternate earth?

JETT SAYS: Tommy, I’m one of the biggest supporters of a BATMAN BEYOND film, but I really don’t know if it’ll ever happen. As far as Terry McGinnis returning to the comics at some point, well, does anyone ever stay dead in comics?
