Dark Trinity: Did Warner Brothers not get the memo about Jared Leto as the Joker?

I’ve met people who love Jack Nicholson as the Joker.

I’ve met people who love Heath Ledger as the Joker.

Some prefer the former, others the latter. Some think they’re both awesome and we don’t need to compare them.

Either way, people feel strongly about their interpretations of the greatest villain of ALL TIME.

Can’t say the same for Jared Leto as the Joker.

Actually, I can say I know plenty of people who have strong NEGATIVE feelings about how he played the Joker. But hey, let’s give him the first ever solo Joker movie! Sounds like a great idea!

This may be…excuse me. This IS THEE dumbest idea Warner Brothers has made with the butchered DCEU.

You cannot make a movie just about the Joker. Great character. Interesting character. Mysterious in many ways.

Don’t get me wrong, I want to know more about him. But that’s part of what makes him an effective character — we know nothing about why he’s the way he is. The Joker could be ANYONE.

So explain to me how you make a movie off of that?

You can absolutely make a good movie with a meh plot. Both Deadpool movies are excellent examples of that.

There’s just one small problem. This is a man that has ZERO direction. Money doesn’t push him. He views a person of power the same as a panhandler. The only person he’s ever shown any kind of loyalty to is Harley Quinn — but he really never is in the scheme of things. The list goes on.

The Joker wants chaos.

Good luck making a movie based on chaos. Especially one that people will actually like.

Halloween is back

Yeahhhhh I don’t think I’m gonna see this.

Don’t get me wrong, it looks like it’ll be a very scary movie. I just enjoy being able to sleep soundly. And, you know, not walk around my home with a baseball bat in my hands.

Comic of the Week

Deadpool #1, hands down.

So much fourth wall smashing combined with great comedy. A great “restart” to Deadpool. And it looks like he’s got some big stuff headed his way.

If you haven’t been reading Deadpool now is as good  time as any to hop of the bandwagon.

Cover of the Week

Yet another great issue from Christopher Priest this week. But this week I’m not praising him. Robinson Rocha’s Deathstroke #32 cover stole the show, and Carlo Pagulayan’s carried on the action-packed, frustrating fight going on between these two.

Deathstroke v. Batman is a arc you can drop in on and enjoy even if you haven’t read even if you haven’t been reading Deathstroke up to this point.

(And FWIW, he’s a DC villain who you could make a very interesting movie, with somewhat of a plot!)
