That's news to me. AFAIK, Black Canary and Batman never hooked up. I remember that one time when she kissed him in a BoP comic, but that's it.

Introduce Canary in Batman and she can go off to Batgirl and Birds of Prey after that. Its exactly the sort of thing Marvel studios would do.

I dont see what changes they'd have to make. She'd be the exact same character, even in the comics she craves Batman's approval. They just have to make her a LI instead of wannabe underling.
I'm not sure how not letting Canary or Huntress (especially the latter) be Batman's love interest number who's-even-counting-anymore would be "depriving the character the chance to tap into her potential"... Not every single DC heroine should want to get into his pants, he's not a freaking Mary Sue.

Again, he already has literally dozens of love interests to choose from. The only one that matters is Catwoman anyway. BatCat forevah!

That's never gonna happen but personally, I'd be all for it. It would be refreshing as hell.

Batman and Black Canary hooked up in the Frank Miller Batman & Robin.

The less said about it, the better.

I consider ASB&R to be a complete travesty.

And ASB&R aside, Canary and GA’s relationship is central to both characters. It would be like making Lois Lane Batman’s love interest. Canary can be in a movie, but she should only be with Ollie.

I'm pretty much in the camp of skipping the love interest for a film and having him work with a female cop instead.

If they do have a love interest ,I'd want it to be a film like Bond's On Her Majesty's Secret Service or like BMOTP where Bruce would truly fall in love, and it would be an element that's truly crucial to the story.

All Star Batman, Brave and the Bold and JL comics, Thrillkiller all come to mind.

And you're looking at the word love interest too seriously. I never said they should sleep together. Flirtation and attraction based dynamics are more than enough.

Bat/Cat has been done to the death but I'm not completely against it.

And finally just how exactly is that making him a Mary Sue? Jim Gordon on Gotham has had 4 love interests, Arrow has had atleast 9 on his show, maybe more. Dunno why fans are quick to throw Batman under the Mary Sue or Batgod category if he gets a love interest or performs great feats but when someone else does it then they're awesome.

I think the important thing is to have a female presence of some sort, doesn't necessarily have to be a love interest (though they most likely will have one as it's the norm for pretty much all superhero movies these days)

They could hold off on Catwoman and Talia for a while

Andrea Beaumont, Silver St. Cloud, or Vicki Vale would be my preferences
