    The CW network and the producers of "Smallville" want to bring "D,J." Grayson to
    your television with "The Graysons," an "original take" on the character and his life
    before meeting Batman and becoming the boy wonder called Robin.

    I think I died a little with each word of that.

    So it'll be a 'tween circus-kid who probably solves crimes in the towns they visit with plucky charm and acrobatic skills!

    ...and there'll probably be a raven-haired tween girl named Donna he'll have a thing for, and maybe--in a Smallville-ish 'Mxyzptlk' way--a redheaded circus Strong Girl (big for her age) named Kori will also pique his interest... and eventually he'll team up with a new kid in the circus named Roy, who's really good with a bow...

    This is October 1st, right? Not April?

    Default Holy - - - -, Batman!?

    Okay, I get how Smallville works. That's because there were Superboy stories. Superboy was all about SuperMAN when he was a BOY. So, I get how Smallville just uses Clark and his powers without the costume and the whole premise will end when he suits up as Superman. There have been some bumps along the way, in how the influences guide Clark toward his destiny.

    I'm not sure how long The Graysons will last. If the Haley Circus is updated to Cirque de Soleil or Ringling Brothers, obviously the show's gonna be about more than just the circus. But what? They probably can't use any Bat-villains. A lot of the early Titans villains were lame. Can they even use any New Teen Titans villains? Will we see Roy, Wally, Donna or Garth? Will we even see Bruce Wayne?

    A small part of me hopes that Adam West and Burt Ward make quick cameos just for grins and giggles...

    The only good thing about this? The last episode is when his parents get snuffed. C'mon, how f'd up a downer episode would that have to be?


    Even more confusing though, with Superman, there's a gap between his teens and his late 20s/ early 30s when he first puts on the costume, so there's no problem if the show goes a couple years. With this, the older he gets, the odder it is for him to put on green underwear and sidekick for Bats.

    It's the "DJ" name that sickens me the most.

    I'm guessing they're doing that to avoid all the "Dick" jokes that would no doubt happen in the show and from the fans.

    Question

    Is this a joke? Why not just make a Bruce Wayne series instead?

    According to the ariticle it'll be an original take on the characters past......so maybe there'll be something more to it than we're thingking at the moment. At least I hope so.

    Because it would be stupid to do a year one Batman story since the Batman Begins franchise is doing that already

    I would much rather have a Batgirl story that centered on Barbara Gordon

    Batman Begins faintly touched upon it for the first hour or so. This would be a series completely dedicated to that time in Bruces life.

    Oh, now THAT would be awesome. And at least with that, we could have a few cameos of Bats.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this.....Not to say Dick didn't seem smart when he was younger, but I think he learned many of his skills(Except, of course, the acrobatics)from Bruce. So, what is this going to be about? Dick swinging around all day, preparing for the next show?

    It's all academic anyway. This show will go the way of Aquaman and then the "D.J." character will pop up on Smallville.
