DC UNIVERSE: The Two Jokes (Phoenix/Leto)

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

we are a GO

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat- ... go-1126127

Phoenix recently finalized his deal to star as the arch-nemesis of Batman.
The Joker origin movie is officially a go at Warner Bros.

Joaquin Phoenix recently finalized his deal to star as the arch-nemesis of Batman and shooting is set to begin in September in New York.

Todd Phillips is directing the film and co-wrote the script, which the studio describes as being an “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.” Scott Silver co-wrote the script.

Warners has yet to stake out a release date for the film, which goes against the grain of most comic book movies that have flags planted years in advance. But the Joker stand-alone pic is meant to be different from other comic book superhero movies.

The project's budget is in the $55 million range, significantly lower than the tentpoles that dominate the form. And the stand-alone is meant to be darker and more experimental in tone and content (at least as experimental as a studio can be with established brands such as DC), which is described as being akin to a crime drama.

That said, there is a chance that the movie could be ready for release as early as late 2019, depending on various factors.

Warners has a possible second Joker movie in the works as Jared Leto, who played the character in Suicide Squad, now has his own solo film project in development.

I would be tremendously happy if from this movie forward they just act like BvS and justice league never happened

Joaquin Phoenix seemed to have been developing an attitude that would be like superhero movies were beneath him or something

curious to know if it was the script or the paycheck that made him go for it

I've kinda lost track -- has DC finally given up on trying to retain a shared right to the Captain Marvel name?

Is he just Shazam now? I saw that the wizard is just going to be called "The Wizard" in this.

i dont understand is that streaming only? does DC have its own streaming platform?

also i dont really have a problem with that

its not really the same kind of dark as the rest of the DCU, DCU is just grim and solemn,

this looks more goth which is a decent look for YA francise like this.

not gonna watch it but i'm always pro gothteen content
admittedly the metal thread has recently taken a hit

yeah they're launching their own streaming service which is gonna have comics, tv, and movies https://www.theverge.com/2018/7/19/17589522/dc-universe-titans-streaming-service-san-diego-comic-con-2018
by next year supposedly they'll have three new live-action shows (Titans, Doom Patrol, and Swamp Thing) and two animated series (Young Justice: Outsiders, and Harley Quinn)

oh, looks like they've released pricing for the service now: $8 a month or $75 a year

which is a little odd, because marvel is $10 a month or $60 a year

Moreover, they noted that while reading a comic book on a television screen might be a bit counterintuitive, it turns it from a solitary activity into one that can be shared by a group of people. Whether people will gather around a television screen to read a comic like they’d watch the newest episode of the latest hit television show remains to be seen, but the demonstration looked cool.
