“We’re breaking the story now,” Cannon said at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo 2014.

Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, Scarecrow first appeared in World’s Finest #3 back in 1941 and has gone on to become one of Batman’s more popular villains with notable appearances in “Batman: The Animated Series,” Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” trilogy where he was portrayed by Cillian Murphy, and the fan favorite “Arkham” video games.
