Gotham’s future speaks about Batman’s true love
Even though Batman has always been extremely busy with having to fight crime and save Gotham City, he has always found time to take care of his love affairs. The two most famous lovers that he has had are two villains, Talia al Ghul and Catwoman.
The debate over who might be his true love has always intrigued fans but Batman could have just confirmed who’s his chosen one is in the new ‘Future State: Catwoman’ series.
In ‘Future State: Catwoman’ series, as was said before, Batman is obligated to change his identity to keep fighting crime because masked vigilantes are not allowed in Gotham City controlled by the Magistrate. He is believed to be dead, but in reality, he was caught by the Magistrate and put on a moving prison train that travels around the city. Talia makes it on her own inside the train and rescues Batman, while at the same time, Catwoman is there too but on a different mission. After being rescued, Batman sees on the security camera screen that Catwoman is in danger and rushes to save her. And that is the moment in which Batman made clear who could be his true love.
Batman and Catwoman romantic moment
Bruce rushes to save Catwoman, right before she is executed. Immediately after that, they have a long kiss. By doing this, Bruce risked Talia’s mission, but it gave us fans the answer of who he prioritizes. He has always been divided between Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, and Talia throughout the years. Especially because he and Talia have a son together, but Catwoman has been a great part of his life since he started being Batman.
Bruce made it clear that he is willing to throw away Talia and the Resistance’s mission over Catwoman’s safety. He even put his own life at risk to save her and now there are no doubts that he could be strongly attached to Talia because of their son, but Selina has a special place in his heart.
Is the Dark Detective going to finally accept that his true love is Catwoman or will he continue to fight his feelings? We will have to keep following ‘Future State: Catwoman’ to get that answer!
