While we wait for information about the future of Superman, Henry Cavill offers his support for the new Joker movie and can't wait to see it.
DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer and superstar comic book artist Jim Lee took to Instagram to offer his thoughts on Joker:
Director Todd Phillip’s @jokermovie is intense, raw and soulful. He’s talked about how his take on the Joker is not beholden to the character’s comic book roots. That said, there’s absolutely nothing in this film incongruous with our understanding of who the Joker is. If anything, Joaquin Phoenix’s mesmerizing and unsettling turn as the Joker gives us a deep and fully realized look into one of our favorite villains, and I’m sure elements will be embraced going forward in our ongoing, ever evolving mythology. That’s what powerful, compelling stories do. And without a doubt—long time DC fans will be spending a lot of time unpacking the many story revelations and questions this harrowing cautionary tale raises. #joker#thejoker #dccomics
