Joaquin Phoenix gets his Joker’s face
September 22nd, 2018 under Batman, Joaquin Phoenix. [ Comments: none ]


On Sunday, we got to see Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker before he was the villain. Now we are getting to see him after he becomes the notorious Batman bad guy for Warner Bros.

I don’t know about you, but it does nothing for me. It doesn’t scare me or make me like him. But I am not the target audience because I cannot stand the new DC Universe movies.

What do you think of the latest look for the iconic character?

The Joker without his makeup
September 16th, 2018 under Batman, Joaquin Phoenix. [ Comments: none ]


We know that Joaquin Phoenix is starring in a film about The Joker’s origin, but we do not know what he will look like in it. Today, Director Todd Phillips shared the first photo of his villain.

What do you think of “Arthur”? To me, he looks just like how Phoenix has looked in his last few movies, so I do not see any difference.

Alec Baldwin is not Batman’s dad
August 29th, 2018 under Alec Baldwin, Batman. [ Comments: none ]


There are reports that Alec Baldwin is going to play Batman’s dad in the Joker origin film with Joaquin Phoenix. Some of those reports wrote that Thomas Wayne is going to be a Donald Trump-like character. Well, I guess those rumors do not sit well with Baldwin.

That is because the actor tweeted today, “Let me state, for the record, that I have NOT been hired to play a role in Todd Phillips’ JOKER as some Donald Trump manque. That is not happening. Not. Happening.” I guess the Joker is on the people who spread those reports.

Personally, I hope this movie does not get made. I just have no respect for Phoenix after I’m Still Here. That and I think the Warner Bros/DC Comic movies are so so so dark. Too dark to even be enjoyable.

Joaquin Phoenix is a Joker
July 10th, 2018 under Batman, Joaquin Phoenix. [ Comments: none ]


After months of rumors that Joaquin Phoenix is going to star as The Joker in an origins film, Warner Bros confirmed today that it is a go today according to The Hollywood Reporter. No word when the Todd Phillips directed film will be coming out, but it is slated to begin filming in September.

What about Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad? That feature is still in the works. Because what does Hollywood need more of? They need more movies from DC Comics and Marvel. Says fewer and fewer moviegoers.

Back to Phoenix as The Joker, I think it is a bad choice. Ever since his stupid stunt for a movie that totally sucked, I lost all respect for him. He is crazy enough to play the villain but he does not have the same charm as Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger who have also played the iconic role.

Imagine Marlon Wayans as the Robin to Val Kilmer’s Batman
March 1st, 2018 under Batman, Jimmy Fallon, Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]


Did you know that Marlon Wayans was originally cast as Robin in Batman Forever? Yesterday when he was on The Tonight Show, he explained to Jimmy Fallon what happened.

He auditioned for Tim Burton, who was the directing the movie at the time, and he got the part. Then they decided to go another way because they were introducing all of these other characters like Catwoman and the Penguin to the franchise. They felt the followup to this movie would be Batman & Robin.

I guess the studio didn’t like that idea and replaced Burton with Joel Schumacher, and the latter decided to bring Chris O’Donnell on as the Caped Crusader’s sidekick.

Was Wayans upset with being recasted? At first yes, but then he realized, “You can’t have a Robin with a bigger cod piece.” Now had they waited until George Clooney took over The Dark Knight than that would not have been a problem. We have all heard the rumors that they had to make the crotch bigger for his costume.

Now that you know Wayans was the original Robin, do you think he would have done a good job in the part?
