The "Heart of a Hero" Red Scarab claimed to have was of Kanjar Ro's
Barry Allen will die for real in Season 3We've seen several onscreen deaths in the show so far. Given the Adaptation Distillation it tends to do, Barry's death and Wally's taking off the mantle might be a good story for the show
Season 2's Finale, The Malicious Mr. MindWill be a retelling of 52, as it is the 52nd episode of the Brave and the Bold. And it will be awesome.
Owlman killed his world's Ultraman.As shown in "Deep Cover for Batman!", residents of the Injustice Syndicate's parallel universe have lives very close to their DCU counterparts, only evil (or good, for the Justice Underground). Bruce Wayne is a costumed warrior with an identity designed to strike fear into his enemies, the Scarab found Jaime Reyes, Sinestro is a Lantern, Joker/Red Hood was dumped into a vat of chemicals in Axis by Bat/Owlman, etc. It follows that there should be a Superman analogue, traditionally called Ultraman in Owlman's appearances. Except that if his life followed the same path as Superman's, then he should have ended up fighting Owlman repeatedly, with Owlman almost always winning but not by much. If you're a supervillain with a Nigh Invulnerable "ally" who's shown a propensity for backstabbing you (even if it's beyond his control), and you have a constant supply of his one weakness - "Batman always has Kryptonite" - but barely defeat him even so, what's going to happen? Owlman shows off his lack of Technical Pacifism, that's what.
The Brave And The Bold is the dream world of DCU Bruce Wayne.Batman is a grim, dark avenger, and Bruce Wayne acknowledges the effect of his parents' death too honestly to try and pretend it didn't happen, even in fancy; however, one can't blame him for wishing that things could be a little easier on him. Bruce therefore creates the BatB world, where villains are simpler to defeat, Good and Evil are black-and-white, and the Justice League are his best buddies whom he can trust and adventure with (more like the swashbuckling Zorros of his childhood) rather than people his own suspicious nature wants to distrust. Superman and Wonder Woman have yet to appear in this world due to Batman's conflicting views of each, respectively; introducing real ambiguity would complicate this ideal world, so they just don't show, and the same goes for any of the Robins - When one does appear, it will be Dick Grayson-as-Robin, before things got complicated. This ideal world could have been created in a number of ways: Perhaps its Batman's dream as he's trapped by some hallucination-inducing or mind-controlling villain, perhaps he got hold of the ability to literally create a new reality, perhaps it's all just a dream.
Kamandi's future is shortly destroyed after Batman's departureConsidering it's Time Travel that got Batman there, and not travelling across the Multiverse, Kamandi's world, changed by a virus, would not exist if the past is given a vaccine that stops the virus. The blast is not from the cannon that Batman reveals is hidden in the Statue of Liberty's nostril, but in fact a visual representation of the eradication of a possible future timeline. Also, Batman keeps a laser-cannon hidden in the Statue of Liberty's nostril?!
The episode "Trials of The Demon!" is based on the Jack the Ripper murders.Except that, being a G-rated cartoon (PG, at the worst) the murders are replaced with (reversible) soul-snatchings, The Ripper is replaced with Gentleman Ghost, and the fact the victims are, uh, "Ladies of the Night" is never explicitly mentioned. Whitechapel (where the murders took place) is even mentioned. I'm actually pretty sure about this one.
Beast Boy is in this seriesHe's that green fish seen at the beginning of the undewater segment of Mystery in Space!
Superman will never get a guest spot on this showWhenever Superman and Batman end up in the same universe, the challenge rating jumps up to Superman's level. Batman can just about handle that, but the rest of his friends would be pitifully inadequate against something that manages to actually threaten Superman. Thus, Superman will simply not appear at all.
Huntress is Batman's daughter.Based solely on Huntress' costume (it's the Bronze Age version, when Huntress was an AU character who was Batman's daughter,) and the old-time feel of the show. Huntress flirts with Batman simply because she doesn't know and Batman hasn't gotten around to telling her. Also, it makes Batman's conversations with Blue Beetle smack of Overprotective Dad, which is hilarious.
Kamandi's Future is after Instrumentality.The water's red, so it's gotta be the tang/LCL that the people got turned into. The absence of people caused nuclear power plants to mutate animals who become the new rulers of Earth. Kamandi is one of the few that resisted the Instrumentality. And, hey, we need to connect this series with Neon Genesis Evangelion somehow.
The events of "Menace Of The Conqueror Cavemen" caused a Stable Time Loop.Michael Jon Carter, security guard, gets Krull to spill his coffee. Krull recognizes him, and attacks-the fight Booster referred to. Carter, in fear for his life, breaks a display case and takes the Gold suit. Shortly thereafter, he is transported to the 21st century, where he tries to be a superhero in order to become famous. The reason Booster Gold doesn't initially remember Krull is either a)brain damage from the time travel, or b)he just plain forgot.
This show takes place in a heavily-modified Earth-2Huntress' costume is based on Helena Wayne's, and Robin stays Robin through adulthood without becoming Nightwing. Batgirl has been mentioned, but it wouldn't surprise me if she turns out to be Betty Kane, the long-forgotten original. Likewise, the only Flash we see is Jay Garrick, and he's not an elderly man like he is in the mainstream DCU. Of course, this being a crossover show by nature, certain characters that shouldn't exist in Earth-2 are in the show like Blue Beetle, Question, K'rull (originally a Captain Marvel villain) Plastic Man and Booster Gold. Perhaps this version takes the Earth-2 version of the Bat-family as canon while integrating elements from mainstream continuity.
Batman is married to CatwomanIf this show is indeed set in Earth-2, then this would be obvious, as those versions of the characters did indeed get married.
Brave and the Bold takes place in the same universe as the 60's Adam West series, several in-universe years after that series endedThe Color of Revenge makes a pretty strong argument for it, especially the introduction.
Ocean Master was cheated out of the crown of Atlantis for having different viewpoints not found in the family.When considering which of her sons to make the new ruler of Atlantis, Arthur or Orm, Their mother, the Queen, found Orm having different religious/political outlooks and Arthur had religious/political outlooks that were more to her way, good or bad.
The Music Meister is an alternate reality Dr. HorribleA musical supervillian played by Neil Patrick Harris. Yeah, never heard of that before.
The Music Meister is Barney Stinson
The Music Meister is a Pusher.And he'll break out of Arkham in the future because, after being unable to use his singing in captivity, he'll hone it into psychic powers and issue commands by mind instead. But after that it'll only be a last resort, because keeping quiet won't let him be much of a Large Ham.
The Music Meister is an alternate version of Izaak Crowe from "Batman: Fortunate Son".And Batman despises him more than any other supervillain, especially after the punk-rock song, "Death Trap", because punk is nothing but death...and crime...and the rage of a beast!
Superman does not exist in the Brave and Bold universeYes Jaime Reyes mentioned him fighting Batman, but maybe the Superman he talked about was a fictional character. Since Doctor Fate summoned Aquaman to provide superhuman strength to the composite hero to fight Equinox, maybe Aquaman is as strong as it gets.
The Music Meister is responsible for everything bad that's ever happened in the history of the BATB Universe.There is no logical reason why this should be true; except that it would be AWESOME!!!
The Music Meister got his power from selling his soul to Sweet, the demon from Buffy's musical episode "Once More With Feeling".After being bullied for so long he snaps and asks the Powers of Evil to help him get revenge. Sweet, who appreciates talent when he sees it, is the one who gives him the offer. Thus the Meister was born!
The time traveling in the show's cold openings will be revealed as part of a cohesive time travel episode or episodes.Saved for the introduction of Rip Hunter or another time travel plot by Professor Nichols.
Batman will team up with his Rogues Gallery to fight the Starro menace.
Chill of the Night is a DCAU episodeI mean, look at it! Red skies, a pitch black story, Bruce Wayne looks identical to his DCAU self... Change some voice actors around, and it's an episode of Batman: The Animated Series.
The show's slowly leading up to a version of Batman RIP.Bat-Mite? Zur-En-Arrh? Thomas Wayne is a Bat-suit? All subtle hints of what's to come... or just a bunch of throwbacks that coincidentally were used by Grant. Your choice.
Batman came up with Robin's new name...
Starro just wants to make friends.The reason Starro sends out countless parasitic clones of itself to mind control the universe is because of loneliness. It wants to make friends, but casual confrontation with it causes irreversible insanity, and since it has no real understanding of the concept of friendship, it instead believes mind control is the same of gaining friends and thus sends out the parasitic clones to do so.
Superman and Wonder Woman are dead
The other Teen Titans will appear...
They will explain why Batman has Shark-repellant-Bat-Spray in a helicopter.They'll be out at sea. The guest star of the week will notice the spray and mock Batman for it...and then a shark will leap several feet into the air, grab the helicopter with his teeth, and Batman will calmly spray. Why? Because it'd be hilarious.
The Justice League has battled Starro before.The League fought against Starro previously, seemingly killing him. However, he managed to recover, stronger than before. The chant of, "Starro lives." could be his way of saying, "Your superheroes thought they had destroyed me, but let the world howl in despair for I have returned!"
The reason why we don't hear about Wonder Woman...Themyscira has left to another dimension to "renew their magic". Wonder Woman renounces her powers and stays in Man's World to be with Steve Trevor who learns that Diana Prince and Wonder Woman are one and the same. She eventually meets the Asian mystic I-Ching who taught her martial artists. Missing her days as Wonder Woman, Diana compensates by now working as a secret agent for a government agency that deals with superhuman affairs. Her partners are Steve Trevor and Etta Candy.
Poison Ivy is a grown up SamThey're both red heads, both voiced by the same person, both wear green fetish fuely outfits. How can they not be the same person?
The Spectre used to be a good spirit of vengenceBack when the JSA formed, The Spectre was probably a really good guy while still being God's vengence because he was still new. As time went on, he became more upset with humanity and the growing need for more vengence. Kind of like in Kingdom Come, where he needed a human tether to keep his mind straight in his judgements.
The Joker is immune to the Music Meister's hypnotism...Because he's just that crazy. He sang along because it seemed like fun. And even if this isn't true, then he at least was having quite a bit of fun, since the first thing he does after becoming omnipotent in "Emperor Joker" is a big song and dance number.
Batman will never marry Catwoman...But Bruce Wayne will, eventually, propose to Selina Kyle. The proposal we saw was a costume party/roleplay scenario. This also goes for the Catwoman in the future episode; she was interested in Grayson!Batman and used this to catch his attention.
All the times Batman was in the past for no reason is actually because he gets hit by the Omega Sanction in the new JLI episode, and is travelling back to his time...Come on it would explain all those "random" openers when he was in the past, and it would also be a shout out to Final Crisis.
There will be a cold open where Joker steals a kid's report card.Like RAINBOW BATMAN it has gotten some mileage.
The Anti-Monitor will be the big bad of the final season.And it will be epic.
The entire show is a bunch of stories being told by AquamanWhenever Aquaman appears in the show, he mentions that 'I Will call this adventure, the time I X'd Y'. He's basically just showing up to adventures, and doing dramatic retellings for the people of Atlantis.
During the Joker's song in "Emperor Joker", Joker destroys everything else in the universePretty simple. We see the sun go supernova causing everything to go white. It's possible - Bat-Mite and Mister Mxyzptlk have destroyed multiple universes - which would also mean that the only thing left in the universe is the Card Room that comes in right after everything goes white. I personally like this theory because it speaks to the true horror of high-powered reality warpers. The good news is that Bat-Mite puts the universe back together after he gets his powers back.
There will be episode where Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow and Two-Face will work together as a homage to old Batman movie
Ambush Bug will appear in the seriesI know this is wishful thinking, but it would be so awesome if Ambush Bug were to appear and make the entire episode insane and funny.
Crazy Steve will be a future antagonistHe will come from a parallel universe and fight the genuine Batman as part of his Holy War. Seriously, cool and light hearted Silver Age style Batman vs Crazy hobo with Batman's stuff, it would be AWESOME.
Booster Gold will go back in time to save Ted Kord from the explosion.In an effort to Screw Destiny and get his friend back. As for the success of this mission... I got nuthin'. It would just be awesome to see Boostle in action again.
The series finale will be a retelling of "Tower of Babel" mixed with the Brother 1 satelite plot of Infinite CrisisIn it will be some criminal mastermind or group that takes out other heroes with the help of Batman's contingincy plans from the season 1 ep "Game Over for Owlman!". In the end most everyone will not be trusting of Batman anymore, much to his dismay.
Slacker Batman represents the side doped up on painkillersLet's face it, being Batman is painful work.
Bat-Mite is a Troper.He used the term "Breakout Character" in Mitefall, and when he wasn't coming off as an obnoxious fanboy, he seemed like he was emulating an obnoxious Troper.
Green Arrow is as good as Batman would be if he wasn't quite so motivated and serious about the whole superhero thing.Green Arrow is, just as Batman, a normal human using gadgets to fight crime. This did not hinder him from taking down Fun Haus, Babyface, Killer Moth and Sportsmaster on his own, while they are all rushing him. At near-melee range. He's basically what Batman would be if he had a Robin Hood theme and wasn't actually a (for The Brave and the Bold) grim avenger of the night obsessed with fighting crime and protecting his city.
The CGI Batgirl preview was realAnd it will be awesome.
Batman is Rorschach in disguise.Evidence: In "Mite-Fall", Batman is so completely focused on defeating a villain that's attacking a single city that he is willing to let his entire world be destroyed instead. If that isn't the end of Watchmen in a nutshell, I don't know what is.
In the finale, all the characters disappeared to Limbo.
Batman programmed a setting in his Batmobile that makes every button spray sleeping liquid into the pusher's face.
The Music Meister can't fully control his powersAll the other inexplicable sudden musical numbers throughout the series, like Grey and Blue, Birds of Prey, Where's the Fun in That, and Aquaman's Rousing Song of Heroism? That was his "cause-a-musical" power leaking from his cell in Arkham. If he isn't singing himself he can't actually control actions, but he's still unintentionally causing others to burst into song, much to the confusion of those around them. Presumably, this happens a lot in Gotham offscreen more than just the bits we see, and people just get used to it.
Had the series continued...It would have eventually had:
The reason Batman is wearing his current costume is because he was scaring children with his old one.Sound familiar?
Bat-Mite is the actual hero of the final episode.There was no on-going plot or big event planned for the final season finale. Bat-mite saw the original planned episode, and it went out with a whimper. This was simply unacceptable, and so he came up with his plan to give the show the send off that it deserved. That's right, he was breaking the fourth wall, from behind another fourth wall.
Somehow, in some way, The Music Meister is related to The Local Lad.It doesn't make any sense, but seeing how the No Celebrities Were Harmed trope on the main page mentions how similar the former is in appearance to Elton John and the latter is one of the few roles Elton has played where he wasn't playing himself, I couldn't help but wonder about this possibility, as ridiculous as it sounds.
The reason Batman visited other worlds and eras was due to the Justice League's breakup.The series never explained why (or how) Batman would often fight crime outside Gotham City, going to other countries, the past, the future and even parallel universes! I believe it was the breakup of the first Justice League (which was never explained either- clash of egos maybe?) that left him feeling someone had to take up the slack, and being the obsessive hero he is, he decided *he* had to do it (and was mostly right.)
The Music Meister is blind.Credit to my girlfriend for this one. At no point in his episode does the Music Meister ever "look" at someone he can't also hear. Perhaps, in addition to his hypnotic abilities, the Music Meister is also able to navigate the world by sound, a la Daredevil, which would explain why he's still able to drive around on his scooter. During "If Only", he only sings about Canary's voice, whereas Canary is singing about multiple qualities of Batman. What if that's because the only quality of Canary that the Music Meister has perceived is her voice? And even before he became a supervillain, he had those cool shades. A lot of blind people wear shades because the inability to perceive sunlight risks overexposure to dangerous UV rays. It would also explain why he specialises in ranged attack, since he would presumably have a reduced ability to react to close-range attacks without visual clues.
