    i'm pretty sure DC wouldn't say no to that had Joaquin was interested before but apparently Todds pitch convinced him

    The thing is why.
    We make a movie that has nothing to do with what’s going on. It doesn’t add to what theyre trying to build


    Nobody wants to see a joker movie without Batman . And based on what I’m seeing it’s about the joker becoming the joker . That doesn’t sound appealing at all. I’m done giving dc chances.

    I actually want to see a Joker film without Batman.

    Batman is everywhere and I believe the hero with the most films in history.

    There's an upcoming solo Bats film and he'll likely be in Flashpoint.

    I love Bats but he doesn't need to be in every DC film.

    TDK could be interpreted to be Joker-centric and it was great. If Suicide Squad focused on the Joker as the villain, it could have been great too and they wouldn't have needed Bats in that one either outside of cameos (which Bats could easily make a quick appearance of easter egg in the Joker film).

    Well its completely separate from the DCEU so it has nothing to do with what they're building.

    Like an elseworld's comic.

    We don't know how good or bad a movie with just the Joker would be. I know I can easily watch all of the Ledger Joker scenes. No Bat needed. So its a situation of us not knowing what we want.

    Plenty single comic issues or one-shots that are all Joker no Bats.

    i always thought a bats joker trilogy would be epic. make the first movie bats-centric showing his side, 2nd movie joker-centric showing his side and 3rd movie everything clashes and they both star in it. if done right would be epic.

    There was a movie with the whole Justice League in it and it underperformed.

    Now DC is going to ask audiences to buy into a solo Joker movie?

    They're going to have to go R rated with a reduced budget for this to work.

    It has nothing to do with what they're trying to build at all.

    That's the point. Dude probably made a good pitch and now they've committed to simply making a good movie.

    Sometimes a standalone is just a standalone. Not everything had to build to something.

    Variety is allowed with superhero movies.

    Before DC tried to quickly gain Marvel's success they were just making one off Batman and Superman flicks. Might get a trilogy at some point but then move on to something else. Nobody was talking about how does Batman Returns build anything.

    I wouldn't mind it. As I've said before, TDK was great cuz of Heath. Didn't need Bats. Could've gave me a gruesome ending and I would've been happy.

    As for the origin, its a bit sacrilege so I've decided to take it as just another story the Joker told himself is his origin but actually isn't.

    WB should have just made standalones/else world stories with their big characters from the beginning...with Flash( in his trilogy) being the wild card to cross over into one or two worlds if it works story wise..

    I would have been fine with that...

    DC might as well throw in the towel. It’s a wrap
