Pregnant Joker is a thing! The most recent and noteworthy development in the DC Comics universe is that Joker is expecting a child. Because of this, the anchors of Fox News were driven to a state of rage. The extreme right is under the impression that this is some kind of left-wing propaganda or another type of plot. You won’t have any trouble finding thousands of people venting their frustrations at Joker’s pregnancy. I am not offended in the traditional sense, but I do think the concept is ridiculous. However, rather than waste my time screaming about it, I will simply not read it.
I was one of the few who did not rush out to see Joker when it opened, because based on what I’d learned about the plot, it did not sound like a “me” kind of film. It sounded monumentally depressing, and I don’t do depressing. Or at the least, I don’t deliberately go out and pay someone money to make me depressed for an entire afternoon or evening.
For quite a long time, the bread and butter of collectibles company Cryptozoic has been figurines of popular characters, DC superheroes most prominently. They’ve come out with a lot of them by now. We suppose they figured they had to shake things up, because their latest product is just….PART of Batman. Specifically, his hand.
Oh, it’s…..a Joker movie. Where’d that come from? Perhaps it’s because the Avengers have been occupying our attention these past few weeks, but the sudden appearance of a trailer for Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime, kinda snuck up on us.
You might think that every celebrity possible has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but you would be wrong. True 2,629 stars have their names immortalized in history, but there are many who aren’t on it yet. One of the biggest ones though is about to have his name checked off that list. The one and only Mark Hamill. That’s right, Luke Skywalker, the Joker, and numerous other characters Hamill has represented over the years is about to be enshrined in history via this star.
One of the reasons that The Dark Knight is praised as a film is not just because of Christian Bale as Batman, but because of Heath Ledger as The Joker. He gave a truly awe-inspiring performance, one that many call one of the best in comic book movie history. Sadly, just after he got done filming, he died in a very tragic way, leaving the world stunned.
There’s a lot of confusion going on with the DCEU, and the people behind the scenes, like the actors, actresses, and directors, aren’t helping matters! Take for example the Suicide Squad situation. We know there’s a sequel, and they finally landed a director. But, there’s no certainty about who’s coming back, or is there? It’s assumed that the team (the ones that lived in the movie that is) are coming back, but those that watched the movie saw that at the end, Joker broke Harley Quinn out of prison. So, they’re not coming back, right?
During San Diego Comic Con, a persistent rumor that surfaced was that a “Joker Vs. Harley Quinn” movie was apparently in the works. Now, Variety has confirmed that this is indeed the case, and that WB/DC are in “final negotiations” with Glenn Ficarra and John Requa to help make the film happen. The film will have Jared Leto and Margot Robbie reprising their roles as Joker and Harley Quinn.
Well…this just got interesting. If you can say one thing about Warner Bros. and their methodology about their comic book universe…it…would be…scattered. You see, when the DCEU was announced, it had a number of set films. But then, as time and films went on, a bunch of new projects were revealed, old ones were seemingly scrapped, and many questions arose about what was real and what wasn’t. And now, a new project seems to be taking place outside of the DCEU…and focusing on the Joker.
One of the biggest reasons that Suicide Squad was made was that it gave a unique opportunity to introduce Harley Quinn and the Joker in a way that wasn’t completely tied to Batman. And while Leto’s Joker was hit-or-miss because of his low screen time, many agree that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was really good. No doubt that response was why DC Comics greenlit a Gotham City Sirens film. But now, ScreenRant is reporting that this could grow even more.
The infamous Batman villain, The Joker, has been confirmed as a playable character in Injustice 2. The announcement came along with a trailer that introduced the character and some of his new abilities, alongside a rather distinctive look that is very different to anything we’ve seen before.
Whether you love it or hate it, it’s hard to deny that Gotham does have some perfectly cast characters in the show. One of the most popular is easily Cameron Monaghan’s Jerome, who has long been speculated to be Joker. The joke was on us though when he died about 5 episodes into Season 02.
