Back in August, we shared what amounted to be the Final Trailer for the new Warner Brothers Pictures film “Joker” and if you didn’t see that post and our editorial thoughts just click HERE to be up to speed about it. This Warner Brothers Pictures feature opens today in theaters everywhere and stars Joaquin Phoenix as the title character. Let’s remind ourselves of the Theatrical Poster, some premise and the casting. I’ll even toss in an extra poster or two as I found some.

The Premise: In 1981, a failed stand-up comedian turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City, slowly rising to become a frightening legend.

Warner Brothers: “Joker” Final Trailer (Opening 10/4/2019)

When I first discussed the soon to be opening film “Joker” here on PiercingMetal’s Pop Culture focuses (seen HERE), I had pointed out that outside the success of “Wonder Woman”, “Aquaman” and “SHAZAM!” films (all three of which I loved); The DC Extended Universe is a hot mess. Since that time there has been less and less discussion of the connected universe and one has to assume that they have given up on the idea. This isn’t good in my humble opinion because not only did Marvel Studios make it work, they are responsible for the highest grossing film of all time with “Avengers: Endgame” (celebrated HERE). A “Joker” film connected to the others might be more interesting but this is apparently not but that being said the Final Trailer was just recently revealed so let’s take a look.

Warner Brothers: “Joker” Teaser Trailer (Opening 10/2019)

Outside of the success of “Wonder Woman”, “Aquaman” and the potentially fun appeal of the “SHAZAM!” film (which opens this Friday); The DC Extended Universe is a hot mess. Films like “Man Of Steel” were moderately received and “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” was a ponderous effort that bore little reward while “Justice League”, well, let’s not discuss the absolute bomb that this ended up being. Resultant of this there will be offshoot films that while featuring DC Comics characters will not be connected to a properly shared universe. The first such film is “Joker” and the teaser clip was just released so let’s take a look.

The Premise: In 1981, a failed stand-up comedian, disregarded by his society, turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City.

“Bring On The Bad Guys”; New “Suicide Squad” Character Posters Released

As the memories of the recent “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” film slowly fade and our nerdy data banks open themselves up to the next installment from Warner Brothers Pictures that continues the build of the DC Extended Universe with “Suicide Squad”. The film features a number of the DC Universes deadliest villains who are teamed together to fight even nastier menaces. I’ve enjoyed the comic series over its many incarnations and only hope we get a better presentation than what we were left with in “BVS”. Earlier today WB release 2 sets of “11” character posters and I love sharing that stuff with you here as a part of our “On Screen” stuff. Check them out.

When the “Suicide Squad” film opens in November of this year it will be the third film in the DC Extended Universe and that is going to be pretty cool, provided that the March to be released “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” turns out to be good and leads us on this connecting path. It’s a long time to wait since we’re only in January, but they did release this awesome character posters which I just had to share with you. They are cartoon versions of the characters as you can see but its still something I like bringing to your attention. You can let me know what you think at the end where those comments are. Enjoy.
