Soooo... I just got word from the horse's mouth, that upcoming DC live-action movies will not be having any fun things in them... no jokes, no color, no whimsy, no fun in the next movies at all.
DC, Warner Bros, have you seen what Marvel's been doing with their comics and movies? Have you seen how bright and heroic Marvel's heroes have been? Do you see Thor acting all angsty and mentally tortured, do you see The Hulk questioning his place in society? No! Because they're being superheroes! They should be bombastic and colorful, kicking all kinds of can while saving countless civilians.
So, what does that mean for the Joker then? Are we gonna have another non-smiley clown from Frank Miller's All Star Batman and Robin? Is he not gonna laugh or make any kind of joke while claiming that he's not funny?
This further highlights my previous blog way back when, on how DC is trying to make all their heroes be more like Batman. And that's just hilarious in of itself because even the Dark Knight trilogy had more jokes and more color than Man of Steel. WB/DC Comics, are you taking notes? Are you listening to what the people have to say?
Sure, the Green Lantern movie bombed, but it's not because it wasn't dark, but because of it's mishandled writing, cast, and effects. (Wasn't that bad thou, personally)
So again, are you paying attention to the criticisms that your audiences write out for you?
You know what, Disney, please buy WB and DC, or at least DC! Get them back and track and do for them what you've helped out with Marvel.
