A live-action, Joker origin story by Martin Scorcese. This. Is. Real.

Todd Phillips Scot Silver Martin Scorsese

Filed away under “Dreams I Didn’t Even Know I Wanted To Come True,” comes this amazing gem from the DC Extended Universe today. Not only are they going to do a hard-boiled Joker origin story. Not only are Todd Phillips of Hangover fame and Scott Silver of 8 Mile going to write the film. Not only is Phillips going to direct it, but he and none other than Martin Scorcese are going to produce it.

If you asked us to pick a team to tell the story of how Batman’s greatest enemy came to be, while we may not have jumped on Phillips and Silver, they are strong choices. We would’ve definitely suggested Scorcese pretty quickly, but that was pure big-dreaming. Not any more. The movie will not be using Leto’s Joker and will likely be a classic, ’80’s era Scorcese-styled crime film

Deadline reports that Warner Bros. is doing this through spinning off a new, as yet unnamed, umbrella from under which this film will come from. We would assume this is the same umbrella that will likely give us Justice League Dark and some of the other alternate/off-the-main DC universe ideas that Warner Bros. has in store. No release date or timetable of any sort has been given, although it was reported that Phillips is already working on a script. We look forward to see what comes of this.

What Does Casey Affleck Know About The Batman?

The running rumor has been that, despite the fact Ben Affleck has been saying nice things about Matt Reeves and being Batman, that he’ll find some way to worm out of the role fairly quickly. Dissatisfaction with the overwhelming amount of attention to his turn as Bruce Wayne over his other projects reportedly had him unhappy, ditching writing, then directing duties, and eventually, wanting out. This has led to some crazy call-outs of the current Caped Crusader on the podcast (which you should definitely check out.)

His brother, Casey, recently made an appearance on WEEI, a sports radio network in Boston, claiming that Ben was, “not going to do that movie, I don’t think. Sorry to say.” It is important to add that Casey is not on contract to Warner Brothers, and isn’t involved with any of their current DCEU operations The younger Affleck brother quickly backpedaled, saying he made that up, but it certainly fueled the already pretty lit fire.

Today, Ben’s reps felt it necessary to address the situation, saying, “He’ll continue to be Batman as long as the studio will have him.” Maybe this is all window dressing. Maybe Joss Whedon has changed Affleck’s opinion of the role and the character. So much of the statements leading up to a major tentpole film are manufactured, so it’s hard to tell if the rumors themselves aren’t just for media hype. Time will obviously tell, but we’ll keep breaking it down on the show – you just keep listening.
