Last week it was announced that The Joker would be getting an origin movie, directed by The Hangover's Todd Philips and co-written by 8 Mile's Scott Silver. To top it all off, Martin Fucking Scorsese is producing. The film will use a different actor than previously, presumably to mess with fans' heads. As more details about the movie come out, it doesn't get any better.

Brendan Schaub, a former MMA fighter, was recently on Joe Rogan's podcast and the topic lead to Batman. Schaub is friends with Todd Feldman, Philips' agent and revealed some details about the movie.

"My boy Todd Feldman put this together with Todd Phillips. It's dark. It's like a dark Joker. As a kid, he had a permanent smile and everyone made fun of him. It's like on the streets of Brooklyn. It's super dark and real."

The intention is to make a gritty and grounded hard-boiled crime film set in early-'80s Gotham City. It'll be the first under a new unnamed Warner Bros. banner which will expand the DC cinematic universe using unique storylines, with different actors.
