Although Warner Bros. has yet to confirm its existence yet, the purported Joker
origin film is moving along quickly - with the script one week away from completion, according to Variety
's Justin Kroll. It was earlier reported that Todd Phillips and Scott Silver were writing the script.
"Hear the Joker
script will be turned in by next week, super fast considering when announcement went out bodes well for 2018 shoot," Kroll tweeted.
No one at the studio has confirmed the film, but Jared Leto - who played Joker in Suicide Squad
- recently spoke tangentially about the prospect.
"Yeah, there are a couple of things happening in the DC world,' said Leto. "I love the Joker. He’s a great character and really fun character to play. But it’s a big universe and when you play the Joker, there’s no ownership there. You have the honor of holding the baton for a little while and then passing it off. There are other films that are in development and I’m excited to see what comes from them.”
No production schedule for a Joker
solo film has been released.

While at the Comic Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, fans got a chance to see the lineup for the upcoming DCEU films from Warner Bros. With the less-than-hoped-for results of Justice League
last month, a lot of questions have been bouncing around about the future of the current slate of films. But things seem to be moving forward for now. (via Bleeding Cool
The presentation was mainly with title cards. The Wonder Woman
logo was flanked by a pair of Roman columns, maybe symbolizing II. Then there was Aquaman
, then, surprisingly, a card for Justice League Dark
. Then there was Suicide Squad 2
, Green Lantern Corps
and The Batman
Films that have been talked about that didn’t get cards include Cyborg
, Justice League 2
, or any of the Harley Quinn

film either or any of the other rumored ones like Deadshot

Spoilers ahoy!CARRIE FISHER REMEMBERED AS ‘THE LAST JEDI’ HAS WORLD PREMIERE12/10/17 @ 11:59 pm EST
Sunday's midseason finale for "The Walking Dead" is expected to take a big bite out of the ratings for AMC, but something else has apparently taken a bite out of a beloved character. (via The Hollywood Reporter
Carl (Chandler Riggs), son of TWD's resident hero Rick (Andrew Lincoln) in the final moments of last night's midseason closer revealed that he had been bitten by a walker a few episodes ago and that he was indeed dying.
Riggs' final episode will be the Feb. 25 season eight midseason premiere in which Carl will take his final breaths.
Showrunner Scott M. Gimple said Sunday on AMC's post-show "Talking Dead": "That is a bite on his side. … It will play out as bites play out on the show. It's very important to Carl's story and the entire story, what happens in the next episode. I'm just focused on the fact that Carl right now is alive and he has some business to attend to. That is a one-way ticket. But I'd like to think that the things we see in the next episode are so important to his life and the other characters' lives."
Some fans were shocked because the storyline move is a huge departure from comic book source material, and fans of the TV series have always seen Carl as Rick's heir and the show's future.
Yeah, about that ...

TRAILER OUT FOR 'JESSICA JONES' SEASON 212/09/17 @ 10:35 pm EST
Three's the charm.
Disney held a theme park-style world premiere for its third movie in the Star Wars saga, "The Last Jedi," the third year in a row it has done so. The "Last Jedi" premiere pulled in 6,300 attendees, which stands as a record among Disney’s three Star Wars premieres, reports Deadline
Prior to the movie premiere, "Last Jedi" filmmaker Rian Johnson told the packed house, “I want to dedicate tonight to Carrie [Fisher, portrayer of Princess Leia, who passed away earlier this year], who is up there right now flipping me the bird, saying ‘Damn it, Rian, don’t you dare make this night a solemn tribute’.”
"Last Jedi" should be somewhat of a catharsis for Fisher fans during the year-end anniversary of her death. They will also be stoked by the expanded role of Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd as Lt. Connix in the sequel.
