Re: The Joker getting solo movie

Had the DCEU been up and running smoothly for a decade or so I might be open to this idea. But even then I'd still be hesitant to endorse it considering all the confusion you're going to cause some audience members. What's the rush to start pumping out Elseworld movies? I try to remain optimistic and give studios the benefit of the doubt but this just doesn't sound like the smart move to make right now. Especially when they've only just begun to get over that rocky start, who knows how Justice League is going to turn out now that it's going to be a joint Snyder/Whedon effort, if that turns out to be another colossal failure audiences might begin to lose faith in the DC brand altogether.

I can't help but feel like this is Warner Bros putting the cart before the horse. This is the sort of stuff that's going to bring major fatigue to the genre. I don't know, maybe it's a huge knee jerk reaction on my part but alarm bells are going off in my head right now.

The only glimmer of hope in all this is that Martin Scorsese of all people is involved in some capacity. It's just a pity he's not going to be the one directing.

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

Do we really need to see a fully fledged joker origin on screen?

Or in any medium for that matter?

No. it was rhetorical. No, we don't really.

WB seem to be putting movies out for all their characters and it's getting out of hand IMO. Just concentrate on getting stuff like The Batman in some sort of working order before you try out this, that and other with all your other properties.

Scorcese being involved is surprising, but the director choice is odd and as i said, it just seems rather needless to me.

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

I've read this isn't going to be a part of the DCEU, so at least there's that. It's still an awful idea anyway.

As far as I know that's correct. It's essentially going to be an Elseworld movie. Like for example this side studio could go on to make Superman: Red Son if they wanted to.

So there's a real possibility that we may have this Joker movie and then Jared Leto still playing the Joker in the DCEU.

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

Wish we can see an actual Joker instead of the gay ass hipster we saw last year.

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

This is a terrible idea since it isn't part of the DCEU. So lets just confuse casual fans even more.

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

Joker does not need an origin story that is what makes him so great.

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

No interest in a Joker origin story or stand alone film.
