The dynamic duo of Robbie Landis and Ben Morse is back once again for another episode of the Other Identity. The Other Identity is a podcast about exploring the culture created by comic books. This week Robbie and Ben talk the latest news headlines in the comic scenes. Plus, has Warner Brothers and DC Comics found it’s replacement for Ben Affleck’s Batman with Michael Keaton?

What Are You Reading?

This week on The Other Identity, Robbie and Ben discuss some of the recent titles they’ve been reading. Ben has immersed in Immortal Hulk by Al Ewing and convinces Robbie to give a try as well. Immortal Hulk is currently on Issue #34 and Marvel recently announced the series would be ending with Issue #50. For any fans who love the series, they can rest easy knowing an Immortal She-Hulk series is in the works. Robbie talks about his experience with Kelly Thompson’s run of Jessica Jones. He compares her writing of the Blind Spot and Purple Daughter story arcs with what he loved about Ultimate Spider-Man.

DC Universe and Batman

Robbie also takes Ben through some of the big headlines that hit the comic and superhero world over the past few weeks. They start with a comment from Zack Snyder about his DC Movie Universe. The Robin suit fans see in Batman v Superman belongs to a dead version of Dick Grayson, the original Robin. Ben and Robbie express their displeasure in this news as Dick Grayson goes on to be a hero in his own right, Nightwing. They cover other stories like DC entering the podcast space and San Diego Comic Con going online.

Finally, rumors are out that DC has found it’s replacement for Ben Affleck’s Batman. These rumors come on the heels of the Flash Movie starring Ezra Miller. Originally, Jeffrey Dean Morgan was rumored to play Thomas Wayne’s version of Batman in the Flashpoint movie. But now rumors are coming out that Michael Keaton will be taking up the cape and cowl in Flashpoint. However, he won’t be portraying Thomas Wayne, but will simple replace Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne.
