Crime Syndicate Part III Owl Man! – I would love to see the Crime Syndicate in the DCEU? Would you?

Not only does he play with the Dark Knight, but he also takes images of cosplays and inspires fans to see more of the Bat-family in live-action. Who wouldn’t kill for Red Hood? Batgirl is possibly in the works, and we’re definitely getting a one of a kind cast with Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).

The next DC film will be Shazam! which hits theaters on April 5th, 2019.
