The Joker Origin Film and THE BATMAN Reportedly Might Be Set in the Same Universe
Are Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment considering building a separate DC Cinematic Universe than the DCEU?! We recently learned that the studio is looking to create a new DC label for their darker films called DC Dark or DC Black.
The Joker origin film from director Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix will be the first film to be made under this new DC movie brand. We recently learned a lot of information about this film and some of the characters that will be involved.
Now according to a new report from The Superhero News Show, there's a chance that this film might exist in the same universe as Matt Reeves' The Batman. The information came from Forbes writer and co-host Mark Hughes, who says "he’s heard from several sources that he trusts that an idea has been floated around. If the Joker movie with Joaquin Phoenix is successful, and since Matt Reeves is basically rebooting Batman with a younger version of the character in The Batman, the idea would be to just cross those two together in a future movie, rather than have The Batman be part of the DCEU."
This is just a rumored idea that Hughes says the studio is floating around and it's not set in stone, but what do you think of the idea of DC Entertainment building a whole other separate DC Cinematic Universe?
