    Really? I think it looks great. It's not really supposed to be the Joker makeup just yet. Think of his look as a work in progress since it's an origin story.

    Are they Using the Killing Joke as the basis? if so, they better not reveal the Joker's name. The Joker should never have his true name revealed.

    ...something like that...happened to me, you know? I'm...I'm not exactly sure what it was. Sometimes, I remember it one way, sometimes another...if I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice! Haha!
    This is why the Joker's name should always be never revealed.

    I (and I’m sure most) loved how Ledger used a version of that where he kept changing the story on how he got the scars.

    I'm pretty sure Joaquin Phoenix's character is named Arthur. There are definite elements of A Killing Joke in this but it's supposed to be an original origin story and Phoenix has no interest in being the Joker in sequels.

    Then what’s the point? This is the kind of head scratcher that makes people believe WB/DC have no idea what they’re doing with their movies.

    Then scrap the picture. If Phoenix doesn't want to reprise the role, AND it is original, then why?

    Because they want to tell an original story that has nothing to do with the failed DCEU. It's very odd especially being placed in the middle of other releases connected to the DCEU but if it's entertaining, I don't mind it. Basically fan fiction by powerful fans.

    Then write an original story that doesn’t involve a character that is known for not really having a “proper” origin story, so to speak.

    That's why they did it. It's never been explored. It could be terrible but it has quality people working on it and it's staying free and clear of the people responsible for the DCEU, so those are good signs.

    Ummm...yes it has. The Joker's origin has been properly explored in the Killing Joke, and while I didn't see the animated version b/c I heard they added more to the book, and I chose NOT to watch, it was made into a movie.

    And my quote above is about the Joker's origin and is from TKJ, and while Alan Moore gave Joker a history and an origin, he then scraps it by having the Joker say:

    ...something like that...happened to me, you know? I'm...I'm not exactly sure what it was. Sometimes, I remember it one way, sometimes another...if I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice! Haha!
    Hollywood should realize that some characters are better explained without an explanation, especially the Joker.

    So I'm watching Justice League again, and every time I see it, there is a HUGE plot hole in the middle. Right after the team resurrects Superman, Batman calls Alfred and says that he needs the big guns. So Alfred let's Lois Lane out of the car, and she steps out and calls out "Clark, Clark". So what is the problem you ask, Lois, Alfred and the team knows that Superman is Clark Kent, but there are 2 POLICE OFFICERS standing on either side of the car that Alfred and Lois were sitting in. They both heard Lois call Superman Clark, and they are in Metropolis. How can they not put two and two together that Clark Kent is Superman and Alfred is Bruce Wayne's bodyguard?

    I don’t hate Justice League as much as everybody else, but even so... lol at wasting brain cells questioning plot holes in DC movies.

    If you haven’t seen the trailer for the season finale of Titans, then omg, you must. It is Robin vs Batman. Dick goes back to Gotham, to try to take down Batman who has apparently gone nuts, and it looks like he is killing his rogues. I hope it just appears that way, bc they better not be making Batman a killer. But it looks awesome..

    It's obviously Trigon messing with Dick since that trailer makes NO SENSE in the current storyline otherwise

    I just got out of Aquaman and OH MY GOD was it good. It had an epic feel to it and it was a beautiful movie. The story made sense and progressed in a logical way. Well written as well as a good use of humor and character development. The costumes were also really really accurate to the comics. Admittedly I do not read Aquaman but I think they were fairly accurate to the comics as a whole. Well done. Definitely stacks up there with any Marvel movie. Seriously.

    I’ve been hearing nothing but good things about Aqua-Man. How DC/Warner took one of their lamest characters and somehow made a good movie baffles me. (Seriously... outside of the Nolan trilogy, every movie they’ve made since gets mostly negative reviews. Except for Wonder Woman, maybe? I seem to remember that getting good reviews...) Kind of gives me good hopes about whenever the Flash movie finally comes out.

    Almost makes you think DC/Warner should’ve stolen a page from the MCU and taken the time to flesh out solo movies before throwing everything together like they did.

    It is a must see. It is clear DC made a choice to make this movie much better than the rest. Also we got a trailer for Shazam, and I am not hopeful for that.

    Saw the trailer for Shazam a while back. Looks fucking ridiculous... and not in a good way.

    I saw Aquaman. It's a really, really cheesy movie in so many places and there were a good few more serious moments when people in the cinema were snickering at the dialogue.

    But if that doesn't bother you too much, and if you are more into all the clichés of the superhero genre then it probably won't, then it will play well with you - it is a stunning thing to look at, for sure.

    I enjoyed Aquaman a lot. It felt more akin to pre-MCU superhero movies in its tone and I quite appreciated that. It is hands down one of the single most utterly bizarre films I've ever watched, but the hero is such a hard sell I think they did really well to embrace the hammy aspects of the character (and genre) and didn't try to shy away from them too much. It helps too that Mamoa has enough charisma and swagger to carry the character off in a really fun way too. By no means the best example of its genre, and I don't agree it's the best DCEU film by any means (appreciating I'm not on board with the general cynicism towards the DCEU in the first place anyway), but I still really enjoyed it.

    Might try to get the chance to give it a second viewing at some point, perhaps after another go-round of all the others too.
