Kevin Smith Explains Why Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Movie Is a Smart Move for Warner Bros. Following Dceu Issues

Kevin Smith Explains Why Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Movie Is a Smart Move for Warner Bros. Following Dceu Issues
Todd Phillips’ standalone Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix is officially happening. For every person excited by the idea of Phoenix tackling the iconic Batman villain, there seems to be ten more people skeptical about the Warner Bros.-backed project. Phillips’ movie is not a part of the studio’s DC Extended Universe, but given how hard Warner Bros. has struck out with critics on “Batman v Superman,” “Suicide Squad,” and “Justice League,” fan skepticism is certainly justified.

Kevin Smith, an outspoken comic book fanatic and a Batman super-fan, understands why some people might worry about Warner Bros. taking on a standalone Joker film, but the filmmaker is choosing to remain optimistic about the property. During a recent episode of the “Hollywood Babble-On” podcast, Smith explained why Warner Bros. was making a smart move with banking on Phillips and Phoenix (via CinemaBlend).

“I think what they’re doing is smart,” Smith said.

Kevin Smith Defends Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix's Joker Origin Movie

I'm actually excited about this Joker original film that DC Entertainment is developing with director Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix. I've said before that I like that Warner Bros. and DC are actually trying something new and different and taking risks with their properties, whereas before, it seems like they were really trying to play it safe.

While on the Hollywood Babble-On podcast with co-host Ralph Garmen, Kevin Smith came in to defend the upcoming Joker movie saying.

"Think about it, there was a time in our lives where there were no Joker films, and no prospect of a Joker film. I’ll take ‘em. Here’s the thing, at the end of the day, I’ll see a trailer — I know me. Even if the trailer is terrible, even if the trailer is a minute of footage of them killing my mother in front of me, I’m sure I’ll be like,

Fans Take To Twitter To Celebrate The 18th Anniversary Of X-Men

The first 18 years of the X-Men film franchise has certainly had its rocky periods, but somehow this mutant-based property of ever-mutating continuity has managed to persist, leaving us with quite a few good memories along the way.

With the original 2000 film now old enough to buy its own cigarettes, fans took to Twitter this week to show their appreciation for the movie that not only kicked off the X-Men series and brought us such lasting characters as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Patrick Stewart’s Professor Xavier, but also helped steer the course for 21st century superhero flicks in general.

Below you’ll find but a sampling of the Tweets that have surfaced in recent days, with many taking to the social media platform to show their love for the franchise.

My favourite comic book characters. To me the X-men weren't just a tv show or characters on A page.

‘Lucha Underground’ Review (July 11th 2018)

Welcome to this week’s Lucha Underground review on Nerdly. This week, we have some excellent action with Joey Ryan and Mil Muertes, to name but a few. I’m Nathan Favel and we should get right to the action!

Match #1: Matanza Cueto beat Cortez Castro

My Take: This was a quick squash that Matanza won. You could piss farther than this match went.

Match #2: Ivelisse beat Joey Ryan for a Gift of the Gods Medallion

My Take: This was a good match and an infinitely better inter-gender match than either of the Asuka/James Ellsworth matches from WWE Smackdown. It’s remarkable what happens when you take a match seriously. Ryan is no stranger to working with women, as he had a great run in Pwg with Candice Larae as a tag team. I would wager that Lucha Underground is set to be the most innovative wrestling league of the year,

2019 Oscars: Best Adapted Screenplay Predictions

2019 Oscars: Best Adapted Screenplay Predictions
Returning veterans take the lead: Brad Bird could land his fifth Oscar nomination for Disney/Pixar smash sequel “Incredibles 2.” His scripts for “Incredibles” and “Ratatouille” both scored Original Screenplay nominations and the films took home Oscars for Best Animated Feature. And “In the Loop” and “Veep” creator Armando Iannucci could earn a second nomination for turning satiric comic book “The Death of Stalin” (IFC Films) into a BAFTA-nominated indie hit.

Spike Lee is another possibility. “Do the Right Thing” scored an Original Screenplay Oscar nomination, and in 2016 he won an honorary Oscar, and now has strong reviews as well as the Cannes Grand Jury Prize for “BlacKkKlansman”. Produced by Jordan Peele and Jason Blum, the outrageous and provocative true tale starring John David Washington and Adam Driver as Colorado undercover cops who join the Kkk could score some Oscar nods.

James Mangold Issues Warning About Toxic Fandom: Great Directors Will Stop Making Blockbusters If Fans Keep Attacking

James Mangold Issues Warning About Toxic Fandom: Great Directors Will Stop Making Blockbusters If Fans Keep Attacking
James Mangold is the latest director to speak out about toxic fandom. The director is well accustomed to dealing with impassioned fan groups as the director of “Logan,” but he’s warning movie lovers that visionary filmmakers will stop accepting the gig to make Hollywood tentpoles if angry fans continue to attack and harass.

Mangold took to his Twitter page (via io9) to address the industry: “At the point when writing and directing big franchises has become the emotionally loaded equivalent of writing a new chapter of The Bible (with the probable danger of being stoned and called a blasphemer), then a lot of bolder minds are gonna leave these films to hacks and corporate boards.”

Extreme fan culture has been a major talking point ever since “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” star Kelly Marie Tran deleted her Instagram posts in June after facing months of online harassment with fans who hated her character,

New Photos From The Predator and Details on Reshoots Reveal References To Other Predator Films

Some new photos have surfaced for Shane Black's The Predator. They feature most of the human characters in the film along with the enhanced super alien hunter that will be hunting them down. We also have some new details regarding the reshoots that the film has undergone, thanks to AvPGalaxy.

A lot of the changes that they've made in the reshoots involve a lot of stuff that we've seen in the trailer and previously released photos. According to the report, "the so-called 'friendly' Predators" that we’ve seen in set photos have been completely cut from the film, "as is the entire Apc sequence and the various hybrid creatures. Only the Predator Dog mentioned in the recent set visits remains."

They go on to say that all of the "death sequences involving the more prominent characters have also been completely changed now and the final battle with the Upgrade

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.

All 52 Marvel Movies Ranked, Including ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

With over 30 years of theatrically released Marvel movies, it’s always a good a time to rank ‘em all, from “Howard the Duck” to this summer’s “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Deadpool 2

52. “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”

It’s just a nightmare. A total nightmare. There have been a bunch of bad superhero movies, but this one transcends bad.

51. “X-Men Origins: Wolverine

A totally chaotic stir fry of nonsense that tells the story of how Wolverine got his claws. Features a version of Deadpool that has his mouth stapled shut, which should tell you all you need to know about it.

50. “Elektra

That five minutes where they tried to turn Jennifer Garner into an action star really didn’t work out well, huh.

49. “X-Men: The Last Stand

Just a total mess, incoherent from the word “go.” Might have killed off the superhero genre were “Spider-Man” not blowing up the box office.

Andrew Lincoln Reveals How He Wants To Exit The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead season 9 will see perhaps the biggest death the show has ever had in the form of Rick Grimes, the protagonist of the zombie drama since its very first episode. Though we know Andrew Lincoln’s on his way out of the series, AMC’s obviously keeping details on how Rick’ll be written out under lock and key. However, some resurfaced comments from the star could give us a clue as to how things may go down.

Back in 2014, Lincoln and a smattering of other Walking Dead stars spoke to EW about how they’d like to die on the show. Though his opinions might’ve changed over time, Lincoln was very adamant about how Rick should go, suggesting a way that it could happen as well as even naming a song he wants played over the credits.

“I’ve always said, I don’t care how it goes,

Gorgeous Dark Phoenix Fan-Made Posters Unite The X-Men

If the original release date had held, we would’ve had X-Men: Dark Phoenix on theater screens this November, likely meaning that the marketing for the movie would’ve been cranking up right about now. As it is, though, Fox pushed the release back to next February, so we shouldn’t expect to see so much as an official poster for a while.

Thanks to fan artist Fabio Rodrigues, however, we now have these awesome mock one-sheets for the film to whet our appetite with. As you can see in the gallery below, he’s created two posters for Dark Phoenix which assemble the entire cast together. Both put Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey at the center, depicted in her fiery Phoenix form, while the other major figure in the posters is Jessica Chastain, who’ll play the mysterious villain in the film.

Can Netflix snag Best Limited Series at the Emmys for “Godless”?
