What do you get when a multi-million dollar corporation decides to capitalise on one of its most popular characters by centring them in a movie that taps into conversations about white domestic terrorism in the United States, incels, and the ways in which folks with mental illnesses are often abandoned by society?

If Joker wasn’t called 'Joker' you’d never know it was a DC movie. Though there are characters with the last name 'Wayne' and it takes place in a city called 'Gotham', there’s little else that distinguishes Todd Phillips’ latest film as a comic book movie.

Those Batman Rumours Pissed Off Robert Pattinson – Because He’d Been Gunning for the Part for a While

All the back and forth this summer over just who would actually be replacing Ben Affleck in the Batcowl was enough Hollywood drama to put our heads in a batarang-worthy spin.
