Joker Movie In The Works

Gamespot

Well it’s about time the King of Clowns had his own film!

Via Deadline:

EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros and DC are in the early stages of another Batman Universe spinoff movie, this one telling the origin story of the signature villain The Joker. The studio has set The Hangover‘s Todd Phillips to co-write a script with 8 Mile scribe Scott Silver. Phillips will direct the movie, and Martin Scorsese will produce it with Phillips. This will be the first film under a new banner that has yet to be named in which WB can expand the canon of DC properties and create unique storylines with different actors playing the iconic characters.

An intriguing part is the setting. The intention is to make a gritty and grounded hard-boiled crime film set in early-’80s Gotham City that isn’t meant to feel like a DC movie as much as one of Scorsese’s films from that era, like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull or The King Of Comedy. I’m told that Phillips and Silver are writing already, but there is nothing firm on where this will fit into the DC schedule.

Sci-Clops will keep you posted on this film’s progress!

Joe Manganiello Doesn’t Seem Sure About Deathstroke’s Status In The Batman

dccomics.com

The Batman movie chaos continues with the story changing sometimes every other day…

Via JoBlo: Warner Bros.’ DCEU has been experiencing quite an overhaul this past year, including a major restructuring of THE BATMAN. In addition to starring in the film, Ben Affleck was also set to co-write and direct THE BATMAN, but Affleck later dropped out of the director’s chair and was replaced by Matt Reeves (WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES). At the time it seemed that Reeves would be working from the existing script, but the director later confirmed that they would be starting from scratch. Although we didn’t know much about THE BATMAN, we did know that Joe Manganiello would be playing Deathstroke, but, with the the script going back to the drawing board, Deathstroke’s status is no longer assured.

Could The Batman Spark A New Trilogy Of Movies For The Caped Crusader?

DC Comics

More Batman movies? Another trilogy idea? What do you think?

Via We Got This Covered: 

War For the Planet of the Apes is almost upon us (July 14th) and for comic book fans, the threequel’s ongoing press tour has become a rich treasure trove of interviews and tantalizing tidbits relating to Matt Reeves and his approach to The Batman.

Now that the filmmaker is coming off the one-two punch of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the imminent War, all eyes are beginning to turn toward his next creature venture, which involves a dalliance with the DC Extended Universe. And for all of the drama that threatened to engulf The Batman four months ago – in short: Ben Affleck handed over directing duties to Matt Reeves – there is now a tangible sense of excitement swirling around the nascent project, which is expected to begin filming sometime next year, long after Justice League swoops into theaters in November.

Mining inspiration from Christopher Nolan, film noir, Rocksteady’s Arkham series(?), and even Alfred Hitchcock, much has been made about Matt Reeves’ creative approach to The Batman, but with so many ideas floating around, one has to wonder: Will Reeves and his team really cram everything into a single spinoff? Turns out the director has at the very least considered the possibility of spinning out a new trilogy featuring Gotham’s Dark Knight.

I have ideas about an arc, but really, the important thing is just to start… you have to start with one. You know, you have to start with a story that begins something. And I would be lying if I could tell you that the arcs of Apes was already planned out, because it simply wasn’t; it’s one of those things where that character was so potent, and the possibility was embedded from the beginning, but exactly how you’ve got from A to Z is not something that existed.
