    Desperation? Nah, it's more of taking a chance since WB owns all these characters.

    I think it's not needed that's for sure. And it's also not going to star Jared Leto. People are speculating that it's going to be solely for WB's streaming service. That at least seems likely.

    Let's face, WB screwed the pooch with the DC universe...

    Now, according to a KCRW interview (via Batman On Film) with The Batman director Matt Reeves, the caped crusader’s solo film will be completely divorced from the DCEU.

    Even better, The Hollywood Reporter apparently ran a story about the Batman film a bit ago with a typo that said '...with a new actor.' before correcting it. Quite a few people in my twitter feed were having heart attacks for a while.

    jesus, I have no idea if this is all due to bad wording, or people having spilled the beans too soon in the past or misinformed actors, but even after the rise of Wonder Woman there is nothing but bad news coming from the DCEU. Way too many film announcements for a franchise that isn't stable yet, way too many sideflicks within as well and what the heck is wrong with Batman/Affleck (the only thing apart from Wonder Woman that is truly working atm)? Then we have the Flash movie and directors who run away from it, we have Deathstroke who no one knows anymore if he is still a considered villain, we have all the talks about Armie Hammer, we have Snyder stepping away from the JL movie, we have Jesse Eisenberg who said he has been cut from the movie entirely and now a Joker origins movie AND a Harley & Joker movie together with Batgirl, Gotham City Sirens and Suicide Squad 2 as well as Nightwing.

    I have absolutely no clue what to believe anymore and if this is seriously this bad or just false information and rumors that are wild on the internet.

    Jeez, what'd I miss, guys...?

    Just to be clear: Of COURSE Batman will be part of the D.C. Universe. Batman will be BATMAN...

    The DC Extended Universe Thread

    I have to say, I think there is a media bias towards D.C.

    The media never freaks out when marvel does their reshoots, or freaks out when the Captain Marvel movie has hired new writers.

    That Hollywood reporter journalist really seems to have a boner on Affleck leaving or the batman movie to fail.

    I still can't believe we're getting more Leto Joker, let alone another suicide squad AND separate different casting Joker movie...does anyone at DC/WB know what they're doing, or are they just throwing around random ideas and just running with them in hopes something will work?

    it's truly getting absurd here. And Leto has to get over the fact that some method acting doesn't guarantee a stellar and memorable performance. Especially not when you are dealing with a character that is open to a lot of interpreations and who has been portayed very differently but groundbreakingly already twice.

    But DiCaprio as Joker? Show it to me, but right now, I will doubt it. Why don't just get someone totally new on board of this? Look at Gotham, they cast someone relatively unknown to great effect. I'd love to see a very special yet rather unknown actor take on this iconic role. Or just have Crispin Clover or Willem Dafoe do it...

    Note: this image is even more fitting b/c it is apparently a circus trainwreck.

    Yes! I saw a photoshopped picture of Dafoe with Joker make-up somewhere on the internet earlier this year and he absolutely has the face for it. If he can laugh like a crazy person, he'd he perfect.

    ughh Leo as the Joker? Bad idea.
    This isn't even like when Heath was announced and people booed. Heath's acting was always way more malleable than Leo's and it paid off in the casting. Every movie that Leo DiCaprio is in he is Leo DiCaprio. I never feel that he disappears into a role. He is always him. For this reason I feel that he would make an awful Joker. The other thing is that he is too pretty. The Joker needs to be somewhat grotesque.

    I've been thinking about how a Joker Orgn mvie could work, and i think i have a good idea.

    The movie should be one big Troll on the audience, allow me a second or 2 to explain.

    The film starts out with the Joker being interrogated. The Cop/Gordon/babs (not Batman) will be our point of view as the audience, and the Joker will be explaining his origin to them/us. The film will do what we're then all expecting, heading back to the 60s/70s/80s are showing us how the Joker became the 'Joker', but somethings will not sit right. Events will not match up with what we know, details will change slightly as the movie unfolds, time will skip and not make sense (at least not right away) until the climax where we find it...it was all a lie. We were all just being stung along by the Joker, just like everything with him, and none of it (or at least what he wants us to believe) will have happened. It allows for the Joker to have his origin and keep his mystery. It should probably end on him doing something unhinged and disturbing, like preparing to remove his face is a nods to the comics story or something, but we should walk out thinking "so was that all just a lie?"

    ...in better writing hands i think this could really work.
