    Isn’t the Joker’s mask also a call back to something else?

    Yes!
    A mask he wears in an issue of the comic!
    ...couldn't tell you which one.

    So, are we ever going to get to see this on the big screen or not?

    I think the masks are an homage to the 1956 Stanley Kubrick heist film The Killing:

    I almost think that the simplistic make-up means a Joker who is truly, nightmarishly, bat-shit insane.

    He takes off a clown mask to reveal a clown face underneath. That's some next level shit. :yes:

    Well, he definitely looks like the Joker.

    I wasn't wild about the initial makeup test shot, but seeing him in action makes me more optimistic.

    Guess they're not going with the facial scars bit.

    If this is as weird and dark and indie as I think it can be, this could be DC's "Logan".
    This movie has shot up to my most anticipated on the DC slate.

    Birds Of Prey has a February 2020 release date.
    So, I guess this one is in motion.

    Ewan McGregor and Sharlto Copley are on the short list to play Black Mask in Birds Of Prey.

    So creative. Too bad no one else came up with that ten years ago.

    Yeah, that main protagonist is so fucking cool, you can tell because he is dumb and disaffected. I already want to see him drowned after half the trailer.

    It looks an improvement on Man of Suite, Suicide Shit, Batfleck v Supermope and Justice Farce.

    And, Fishman is the kid of Jango Fett and Nicole Kidman?

    The rooftop chase sequence! Wow!
    Black Manta looks...pretty awesome.
    Nicole Kidman :wub:...and she's kicking ass!
    Orange and green costume!

    Looks like fun!

    'Course, I felt like someone did a copy-and-paste on The Fifth Element screenplay when they activated the doo-dad with a drop of sweat.

    Mera, Aquaman's (eventual) wife.

    And Mera was introduced in 1963, while Scarlet Witch did not appear until much, much later: 1964. So, technically, Scarlet Witch is the knock-off. :diacanu:

    Marvel making DC their cinematic bitch pretty much negates all that.

    Meh, the big reveal there was that the boss/mastermind was part of the crew all along. Plus only the movie audience got to see it, and they were already in on the gag. Try it on a crowd of panic-stricken civilians and you'll blow their minds, trust me.
