Put On A Happy Face! First Teaser Trailer Arrives For “Joker”

Smile, the first teaser trailer for Warner Bros. new DC Comics movie “Joker” is finally here!

Directed by Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker, the movie is about Arthur Fleck, whose rapid descent into insanity is juxtaposed to his clownish demeanor. What happens when a perfectly nice guy is pushed over the edge?

“Joker” seems to be exploring that, making the character sympathetic in some ways, but also very reminiscent of Robert DeNiro’s performance in Martin Scorcese’s classic “Taxi Driver”. This is a Travis Bickle Joker, with a lot of complexities that don’t make him 100% a villain at the start of the movie, but it sure seems like he is going to be over 9000 by the end.

Check out the teaser trailer for “Joker” below:

Phoenix’s performance as The Joker may rival Heath Ledger’s from “The Dark Knight”. It’s very chilling and nuanced, and very unique from how Ledger played the part, but I get the feeling it will be just as compelling.

He may not be the “Clown Prince of Crime” just yet, but it looks like he will be getting there pretty quickly in this very creepy and disturbing trailer.

“Joker” hits theaters on October 4, 2019.

Matt Reeves’ “Batman” Movie Set To Start Filming At End Of 2019

It’s going to be a strange new frontier for DC Comics movies in 2020, with their goal to make films stand-alone and less intertwined like the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Shazam” has started that trend and the next “Wonder Woman” and “Aquaman” films will continue it. We also know that the upcoming “Batman” movie will live on its own merits, and we now know when it will begin production.

According to a tweet by director Matt Reeves, “The Batman” begins filming “sometime around year’s end.” While that is vague at best, it does mean we can most likely expect this as an early Summer film in 2020.

Another Tweeter asked him if the movie might be inspired by Roman Polanski’s 1974 movie “Chinatown”, which Reeves responded to and said he watched the film before writing the script. This also gives us a little bit more of an idea of how the tone of the movie may be.

This will be the first DC movie without Ben Affleck as Batman, who had a short-lived career under the cape and cowl. No news on who might be playing the Caped Crusader in the upcoming film.

“Batman VS TMNT” Gets A Trailer

Awhile back, we learned of a cartooncrossover between The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and (who knew) Batman. Today, we have our first look at the movie, and all we can say is WOW.

Entertainment Weekly got the scoop on this one, giving us a video that gives us goosebumps every time we watch it.

And here is a bootleg trailer from Youtube that is easier to watch (until the official one is uploaded to that site):

Not only are we getting the ninja turtles and batman together, but we are also getting Batgirl and Damian, plus their rogues gallery of – to name a few – Ras Al Ghul, Harley Quinn, Bane, Me Freeze, Penguin, and The Joker. On top of that, OH HAI SHREDDER!

By the way, the cast for this movie is just as INSANE as this crossover!

Emmy winner Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) leads the voice cast behind the Turtles as Raphael, accompanied by Saturday Night Live‘s Kyle Mooney as Michelangelo, Grace & Frankie‘s Baron Vaughn as Donatello, and The Woody Woodpecker Show‘s Eric Bauza as Leonardo.

John DiMaggio (Adventure Time) voices Mr. Freeze, Tara Strong (Teen Titans Go!) voices both Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) voices Penguin, Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911!) voices Bane, Cas Anvar (The Expanse) voices Ra’s al Ghul, Keith Ferguson (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) voices Baxter Stockman and Two-Face, Andrew Kishino (The Lion Guard) voices Shredder, and Meskimen voices another character with Scarecrow.

“Batman VS Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” will be released through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack this spring.

The film will have its world premiere at WonderCon Anaheim 2019 on March 31, 2019.

Is this the Bat-Suit from “Gotham”?

Fans have been waiting for the entire duration of Fox’s “Gotham” show to see Bruce Wayne become the Dark Knight. As the series draws nearer to the finale, it seems we have our first leak of what the costume may look like.

A user on Reddit somehow got his hands on this image, and theorized whether or not it was the costume from “Gotham” that Bruce would soon don to become the Batman.

According to the original poster, a “filter was applied to the screenshot to brighten it, so that we can see the details more.”

The series’ executive producer John Stephens already confirmed that Bruce Wayne actor David Mazouz will not wear the full suit.  However, that does not mean someone else can, at least for now. IN fact, Mazouz will voice a growling Batman, but the suit was made for someone over six feet tall.

Who will wear the costume remains to be seen, so stay tuned to “Gotham” to see what happens next. Same bat channel, same bat time!
