After seeing the first trailer, I’m excited to see the upcoming Joker film. Now let’s say the movie does really well. Let’s say it’s another hit for DC movies. My question is, what do you think this does for upcoming movies not necessarily set within the DCEU?
If it does well, I’d love to see a movie here and there that does its own thing while still having films set within the DCEU. In fact, a good example of this would be the current animated movies. They usually release three within a year: two in-continuity movies with a Justice League and a Batman, and one out of continuity movie which ranges anywhere from a Bruce Timm-verse style movie like Justice League vs The Fatal Five or Gotham By Gaslight.
My only concern is I’m not sure how you’d convince audiences to get behind something like this. And you also don’t want to have one bad movie make executives change their minds a la what happened to the Star Wars story spin-offs after with what happened with Solo.
I still want my DCEU movies because there’s so much that can be done with them and I’m eager to see what’s coming up, but if we can get cool stuff like this Joker movie, too, then I’m all for variety.
What do you think?
