Joaquin Phoenix in Inherent Vice

Warner Bros. is continuing to develop their DC film slate in the most interesting of ways. In addition to the number of DCEU films currently in development, they have launched a new series of films that are not set in the DCEU. These standalone films will be much darker takes on the characters involved. And it all starts with an untitled Joker origins film.

Written and directed by Todd Phillips, the film will be separate from the other DCEU films. The project was first announced late last summer. Jared Leto is still signed on to play the Clown Prince of Crime, having first appeared in Suicide Squad, and is expected to reprise his role in the Joker and Harley Quinn spinoff and other DCEU related titles. However, the plan for this movie was to cast someone else in the role. And now it looks like the director has found his actor. According to new reports, Joaquin Phoenix is close to inking a deal that will see him become the Joker.

Comic Review: Batman: White Knight #1

Batman: White Knight #1 review

Batman: White Knight #1
Batman created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger
Script, art, covers by Sean Murphy
Colors and cover colors by Matt Hollingsworth
Letters by Todd Klein
Asst. Editor: Maggie Howell
Editor: Mark Doyle
DC Comics
Release date: October 4, 2017
Price: $3.99

First, I’ll state the obvious: Batman: White Knight #1 looks spectacular.

Sean Murphy‘s style is tailor made for Gotham City and its inhabitants. In the action-adventure series Chrononauts, he showed his range, packing each frame with so much kinetic energy it burst at the seams — but it’s in the shadows where Murphy shines brightest. He was born to illustrate Batman.

At the moment there are a handful of artists at the top of the food chain — Adam Hughes, Greg Capullo, Rafael Albuquerque — and Murphy is among the very best. Not to be overlooked, Matt Hollingsworth adds a pitch-perfect color palate to offset Murphy’s darkness, and the results are stunning.

WB Looking At Leonardo DiCaprio To Play Joker

“You had my curiosity, but now you have my attention.” That Leonardo DiCaprio quote could be applied to the Joker origins film we found out about recently. When it was announced, I was curious at how a film that is separate from the DCEU could work. And did anyone really need a Joker film.

But now comes word that Warner Bros. is actually looking at DiCaprio to potentially fill the lead role. Considering that Martin Scorsese is producing, and the actor has appeared in five of his films, this couldn’t be a more perfect pairing. More on the story below.

Jared Leto and Margot Robbie as The Joker and Harley Quinn

I sure hope you like the Joker and Harley Quinn, geeks. Because a whole lot of them are incoming. We first saw the Batman villains together in Suicide Squad, played by Jared Leto and Margot Robbie. The actors will also be reprising the roles in the upcoming Suicide Squad 2 and Gotham City Sirens. On top of all of that, we just found out two days ago that a Joker origins movie separate from the established DC extended universe is being developed. That project, however, will cast someone new to play the diabolical prankster.

Now comes word of a new project in the works. The movie, which doesn’t have a title yet, will focus on the Joker and Harley Quinn characters, with Leto and Robbie due to play them here as well.

Joker Origins Film In The Works; Martin Scorsese, Todd Phillips Involved

Jared Leto as Joker in Suicide Squad

The origin of the Joker has always been a bit ambiguous, but the common basis of his ascension to become the clown prince of crime is that he fell into a vat of acid that bleached his skin pure white, dyed his hair green, his lips were colored ruby red. Of course, because there is no definitive story, everyone has a different interpretation. And now it looks like Warner Bros. wants to tell that story on the big screen by giving the Joker his own origins film.

Various reports confirm WB and DC are in the early stages of developing a Joker origins story. The Wolf of Wall Street‘s Martin Scorsese will be one of the film’s producers, while The Hangover‘s Todd Phillips is in talks to direct and co-write the script with 8 Mile’s Scott Silver. More on the story below.

Harley Quinn Cosplay

Critical reviews aside, Suicide Squad is wildly popular, particularly the character of Harley Quinn as portrayed by Margot Robbie. She is much more than just the insane girlfriend of Joker; she’s standing on her own two feet as a fearless dissident with an iconic, unforgettable look (which many are imitating through cosplay).

With New York Comic-Con and Halloween coming up, throngs of people will be visiting costume stores to dress as Harley Quinn, but lucky for you, I’ve done all the research for you! I’ll be covering the con as HQ herself and have decided to review what I found on the road to NYCC.

An authentic, quality ensemble is at your fingertips, but you may have to act fast! October is almost here and time is running out. See below for my 7 Tips For The Perfect Harley Quinn Cosplay, complete with photos of me modeling the items.

Batman vs Joker: Creating The Perfect Antagonist In ‘The Dark Knight’ (Video)

Heath Ledger as Joker in The Dark Knight

I don’t know if people will be talking about Zack Snyder’s and Ben Affleck’s Batman when the year 2026 or so rolls around or not. What I do know is that people are still talking about Christopher Nolan‘s and Christian Bale‘s Batman, especially 2008’s The Dark Knight, which featured the late Heath Ledger‘s unforgettable Oscar-winning performance as the Joker.

An excellent new YouTube channel (only a couple of months old) called Lessons from the Screenplay takes a closer look at Ledger’s Joker in a recently released video, and what truly made him the perfect villain to face off with the Batman.

The Killing Joke Header Image

For the most part, WB’s animated take on DC heroes has had PG-13 tones, but the upcoming adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke will receive an R-rating. Based on the Alan Moore and Brian Bolland‘s famous comic book storyline of the same name, the animated direct-to-video feature will be close to its source and have voice actors Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their roles as Batman and The Joker, respectively.

Now a new trailer has appeared showing us just how close the animated feature will be to its storyline. Check it out below.

Batman: The Killing Joke

Warner Bros. and DC Comics announced on Friday that they will be producing three new direct-to-video animated features featuring Batman for release in 2016. With Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice poised to explode onto the big screen next March, there will no doubt be another resurgence of interest in Dark Knight-related merchandise.

Among the three new animated movies coming our way next year will be an adaptation of what is arguably one of the greatest stories of the Caped Crusader ever told, Batman: The Killing Joke.

Renaissance Heroes and Villains Cosplay Shoot Header

Imagine your favorite comic book, movie, and fairy tale heroes and villains if they existed during the Renaissance. What might a painted portrait of them from those times have looked like?

Wonder no more. Photographer Sacha Goldberger was part of an event in Paris recently where these iconic characters—including Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, The Hulk, Darth Vader, Catwoman, Princess Leia, Joker, Superman, Snow White, and others—were photographed with a decidedly old school look to them, creating a fascinating set of Renaissance painting-style cosplay images.

You can check out a bunch of the images below to see how some of your favorites would have looked in a different time.
