In the DC universe, there are two constants. The Batman and The Joker. There is no Hero without a villain. So DCEU is moving into high gear with the announcement of a Joker movie. No, we ain’t talking about the Jared Leto’s Joker Movie.
This one is an origin story. Sigh yes I know. They want to do an origin story of the most iconic villain in the DC universe. They pulling out the cash cow. Thankfully this is a multiverse version. Meaning this isn’t canon. I already hate Jared Leto as a Joker. God only knows if they can pull off a multiverse version.
Joaquin Phoenix will be portraying the clown prince of crime. This movie will be set sometime in the 80’s. Get this his trigger to the life of crime would be after he bombed as a standup comedian. Hmm, this sounds familiar? Oh yeah, this sounds exactly like Alan Moore’s “The Killing Joke.”
I have zero faith in DC live action films. ZERO. Let’s look at their track record so far. The revamped Batman movies with Ben Affleck was trash. Justice League was a desperate attempt against the Avengers. Wonder Woman was ok. Superman movies were forgetful and boring.
Marvel movies have something DC can’t duplicate. That wow factor. A thread that connects all of their standalone movies together. DCEU is one confusing mess. If it isn’t actors dropping out it’s the directors. This movie is slated to release October 19th 2019. So the hype train should be around next year SDCC.
