    I think we all knew Leto had a contract (probably your standard 3 pic deal). "The Killing Joke" live action could be excellent. Also might be coupled with "Under The Hood" if they'll do Flashpoint we could get glimpses of it.

    So a 3 hour 80s noir movie? Yeesh. I'm not feeling it. I don't care for the extended origins of the Joker that the comics have attempted over the decades either.

    None of this makes any sense, someone at WB needs to clarify everything.

    http://www.cbr.com/ben-affleck-batman-film-not-dceu/
    When I read The Batman not part of the DCEU, I automatically assume it's it own separate new thing. Do they mean exactly that, or will the movie be in the DCEU, but just stick ONLY with and to Batman? Do a DCEU "prequel" with this Batman movie with and show us what happened to Robin if we're constantly going be be reminded of his death in upcoming films.

    http://www.cbr.com/joker-movie-martin-scorsese/
    Is the whole entire DCEU falling apart? Instead of doing a new banner, why don't they just make everything assumed/implied it's in a shared universe? They don't have to go out of the way in every single movie to remind us the universe is shared. We understand it, even if there is no reference to other things we've seen or will see. At this point we all expect everything in Marvel and DC to be in a shared universe anyway.

    My main point is this - If WB is just saying screw it and making movies both in and outside the shared universe at the same exact time, I say we apply this simple (lack of) logic WB is doing with their films and make EVERY DC CHARACTER up for grabs for use in the shared CW universe. That means more presence for Superman. That means no more ditching characters/concepts on the TV shows in favor of a movie (Suicide Squad on Arrow). And that especially means to finally bring Batman in on the shared CW universe.

    The one thing, I just thought of is the Venom-verse. SONY making certain they'll keep making Spidey by getting their own side universe. While obviously differences aside, WB is staking claim outside of their very shaky shared universe.

    MMA fighter and actor/comedian Brendan Schaub, talked about the movie on this week's Joe Rogan Experience.
    Yeah, there's a lot wrong with that description...

    It's looking to me like DC is intent on setting up the multiverse, and sowing seeds for future crossovers. Crisis on Infinite Earths, perhaps at some point? I do know that stuff like this is going to enormously confuse the general moviegoing public, who have shown signs they may already be slowly falling out of love with comic book movies. But that remains to be seen.

    As for this movie... man oh man, I never in a million years we thought we'd see the day where Martin Scorsese, arguably one of the greatest filmmakers of the past several decades, would be involved in a comic book origin story about the Joker. I'd love to hear the meeting where he agreed to do this. I'm not a fan of the Joker getting his own movie, I've always been a believer that he works best in smaller doses, but I admit that the names involved have me intrigued.

    If I remember correctly, this pitch was at least loosely based on Frank Miller's Batman: Year One.
