    Recent Batman comics for a marrige between Bruce and Selina?

    Now given I'll be discussing this and Selina's answer, I'm giving you fair warning of spoilers. Ok you have your warning and let's go.

    In one of the recent Batman comics Bruce asked Selina to marry him in main DC canon.

    Recently discovered today that Selina will in comic number #3 actually say yes. This is big news for Batman of they haven't actually done this before.

    Also this tying in with Tom King's of he's discussed while Batman still will be kept dark, he's going to make Bruce more human and actually happy. More then just a pain filled dark knight who ends up bitter and alone.

    I actually have to give Tom King guts for even trying to do this in the first place. I for one and am board.

    Which never thought the day we would see Batman and Catwoman get married or even engaged in main DC comics canon, that isn't a elseworld story or something. I hope DC actually allows them to stay on this route and not go say like Batwoman and Maggie some years back. It sounds for right now they are going to keep Bruce and Selina on this path.

    If Bruce and Selina end up becoming the new Clark/Lois for marriage and they are still lasting, I'd be fine with that.

    For Geoff Johns who I believe said in an interview of one main reason why the new 52 failed was nobody liked all their heroes being depressed and not happy. So one thing they are trying to do with Rebirth is bring some happiness back into these heroes lives.

    What are your guys thoughts?

    They were married on Earth-2 in the Silver and Bronze Age. Their daughter was Helena Wayne she is the original Huntress.

    Earth-2 during that time was the continuation of the Golden Age storylines.

    It's nice that it would finally be canon again. I hope DC puts their daughter in Batman Beyond book.

    I'm all for it too. Selina and Bruce always had a long-lasting relationship even if it was filled with Hero/villian antagonism at times. So it only makes sense that they'd eventually end up together for good one day.

    And they might end up having a far more interesting dynamic than Lois and Clark does thanks to the history they have. After all it's not everyday that an Hero and a villian gets married to each other.... and hopefully they'd be able to shake the notion that married life is boring to write, because it shouldn't be.

    Yep it only makes sense given their long lasting relationship and them being occasionally allies, and on the different sides of the law at times.

    Yes they really might end up having a far more interesting dynamic due to their history. Yes it is not everyday and I hope they shake that as well. However I would prefer if they stayed away from pointless melodrama.

    Yeah. personally, I'm hoping it'd be a little bit of the same dyamanic they have going on only now they're living together, etc.

    Spoilers, ok so there's your warning

    Turns out all the build up to any wedding in Batman #50 is all for nothing, given Selina left Bruce on the day of the wedding.

    It got leaked that they didn't go through of Selina walked out on the day of the wedding and oh they even came up with a BS excuse of Bane and Selina's so called best friend Holly blackmailed Selina into leaving Bruce at the altar so that they could break him emotionally before destroying him physically.

    Like uh guys at DC who are you trying to fool, your just trying to push this to the back burner and not go through with it at all.

    Even got Tom King saying "Guys I'm doing a 100 issues so this going to be a 100 issue story arc" and naturally got comic fans who wanted this to happen with knowing about the spoilers from #50 , are pretty upset. Even got the retailers upset at they ordered up the comics with all this preluded to the wedding stuff, and everything is now all for nothing.

    Got some of the comic book buyers going "That's it, I'm done and not waiting around for three something years down the road or whenever issue 100 comes around, if you even get that far for them to possibly get married. Especially after you've wasted all my time and money with this" and I don't blame them at all.

    I mean heck even for me I'm annoyed since I've spent money buying the graphic novel collections all to find out as of now it's for nothing. Like thanks a lot guys and if your going to play these games I'm not going to buy those collections, I'm done.

    the people at DC seems to have something against marriages. they didn't let other characters get married too neither, because reasons. (rolls eyes)

    Marriages are difficult in comic books, because they disrupt the status quo. Nonetheless, this felt convoluted and way too much like a gimmick to sell books and get some press. If you're going to tease it with Selina, I think you have to go through with it. The whole thing being a plot of Bane's would have worked better had it not been a character with so much history. It might've been more telegraphed, but it would've worked better.

    I reserve the right to withdraw this criticism should they end up going through with the marriage after all.
