The first season of My Adventures With Superman featured many references to and characters from Gotham. The show’s producer Josephine Campbell has chimed in on the possibility of getting a Batman appearance in the show’s second season.
My Adventures With Superman blew away all expectations with its first season, becoming one of the most beloved pieces of Superman media in recent memory. The series served as a love letter to DC Comics, featuring both Superman-centric characters and references to other cities like Gotham. When asked if fans can expect a Batman cameo in the show, producer Josephine Campbell emphasized that the focus of the show will always be on Superman, Lois Lane, and Jimmy Olsen:
“I mean, this is a Superman show. We have brought in some other characters, like you said, Vicki’s from Gotham, there’s some mentions of Gotham,” Campbell told the Superman Homepage. “But, for us, the whole point of this is, it’s about Superman. It’s about Lois, and Jimmy, and the focus is always going to be on them. We love Superman so much.”
“I’m excited to see [Batman:] Caped Crusader when that comes out. Definitely, there’s still going to be some more mentions of Gotham, so keep an eye out. But, at the end of the day, Superman is our hero. Superman and Clark are who we love the most. And it’s who we’ve spent a couple of years writing now, so it’s what we love.”
While some fans are likely saddened they won’t be seeing Batman play an extended role in the series, it’s certainly a refreshing change of pace. Despite Batman getting dozens of his own animated series’ (and even a movie), the last Superman cartoon before My Adventures With Superman to not prominently feature Batman was Superman: The Animated Series in 1995. It seems as though the Man of Steel is finally stepping out of the Dark Knight’s shadow.
Superman: Legacy is a much-anticipated project, given that Clark Kent has been an integral part of the DC Universe for over 80 years, with various iterations and adaptations across different media. The movie promises to explore the character’s origins and his struggles to balance his dual identities as Clark Kent and Superman while fighting off villains and saving the world.
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
