DC's never going to get better until they stop being so reactionary about everything and start doing their own thing.

Oh hey, Iron Man's the new hip superhero as an arrogant playboy instead of a traditional boy scout, let's copy that with Green Lantern.

Well that didn't work, but everyone loves The Dark Knight right? Let's make Superman like that!

Well The Avengers made $1.5 billion so the big thing now must be big crossovers, let's put Batman and Wonder Woman in our next Superman movie and get to Justice League as fast as we can!

Guardians of the Galaxy was a team of humorous criminal outlaws, let's change our Suicide Squad movie so it is more like that!

And now they see that the Marvel Netflix shows are popular so they are trying to copy that with the Teen Titans.

I don't think it is a coincidence that their two big successes in the last two decades (TDKT and Wonder Woman) were the two instances they were trend-setters instead of followers. If you are going to do Teen Titans, do a show that is appropriate for those characters. Robin is not Frank Castle or Jessica Jones.

About as happy as the prospect of getting a root canal.

But don't worry, I'm sure someone like The Guard will be able to type up an essay length post on why its a brilliant innovative idea.

It’s fine Joker! Just because things are done a certain way in the comics, it doesn’t mean they have to be done that way in movies!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking a plot device last used as a gag in an Austin Powers movie, and putting it in a film about the most popular comic book villain of all time.

Why, just think how deep and dark they can be showing us all how Arthur ‘The Joker’ Fleck is mad at his half brother Bruce Wayne, and decides to dress up like a clown to get back at him and his rich daddy who didn’t love him.

It’ll be great! Waaaaay better than all those silly comic book stories, not written by serious film people.

I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen that guy dislike anything.

But please tell me the newest rumor isn’t that Joker and Batman are half-brothers.

It is, as of now. They're taking a fan theory and running with it as if WB came out and confirmed it.

Actually, we’re having a laugh over the theory, and it’s not just fans reporting it.

But take even the half brother thing out of the context, and the rest still sounds pretty damn awful.

Uh, not really. Look at the Joker thread. People are acting as if that theory is set in stone.

You can at least try to be subtle about wanting this movie to crash and burn

We have learned that Joaquin Phoenix’s character will begin the film as Arthur Fleck before the series of events that drives him to become the Joker. As we told you before, Phillips’ film will follow Fleck as he returns to a city on the brink. We believe that Fleck will return home to live with his aging (perhaps dying?) mother, Penny, in her apartment. It’s here that he’ll likely meet Sophie Dumond, the single-mother set to be played by Zazie Beetz, and begin his descent into madness described as the “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
That's literally it. The thing about Arthur being related to the Waynes is pure speculation from the writer using info we already knew about over a month ago.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I seriously wonder if they named the character A. Fleck simply because WB is still trying to woo Ben Affleck into coming back, going so far as to naming the Joker after him.

They're so subtle.

I'm not completely convinced that the Arthur Fleck thing is true because it's so weird. Surely Todd Phillips and Scott Silver knew what they were doing with that?

Ah. Well it sounds like, from the rumor, that it's about him becoming the Joker. I was hoping he'd be the Joker for a majority of the movie

But I don't really care about it much anyway

From someone who's gotten a root canal, I can assure you the laughing gas the dentist gives you feels much more relaxing and pleasurable than any laughing gas Arthur Fleck will use.
