WB considered Joker 2019 as a test for a new brand of DC movies, stuff that’s ultimately independent from any main continuity. What other hero/villain deserves the DC Black Label treatment?
For me, I have 3 personal favorite choices:
- Cyborg - instead of more sci-fi, could go Joker route and be about how a differently abled individual navigates the real world. Obviously give him some cool upgrades and stuff but it could be a more incisive look at the world.
- Green Arrow - could honestly take the concept of CW Arrow and just go hard R with it. Make it more gruesome, like S1 was.
- Lex Luthor - instead of doing like a Donald Trump parody (which is way to easy and, frankly, basic at this point), make it something about the vindictive nature of capitalism if you wanna go for that. Always stepping on each other to get ahead. And Lex is as charismatic as they come, so it’d be a helluva ride.
