    Idk who that is, but he seems to be kind of a dickhead haha he blocked someone just for calling it a "poorly worded tweet", which is true

    He’s a fairly well known critic and doughboys guest

    Not familiar with him at all, but even still that doesn't seem like news to me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I'm still super excited.

    It seems like generally everyone is aware that this is it’s own unique interpretation of the Joker origin story, so I really don’t think he’s talking about a fan backlash in that sense. My guess is that there’s some severely yikes-inducing stuff in there.

    It is Todd Phillips, after all. It'll be an interesting take, for better or worse, but that makes me excited.

    let them say our love is peculiar, don’t care

    I'm all for a director pushing boundaries to be interesting or find good social commentary, but Todd Phillips is about as nuanced as a hammer to the face, so it'll probably be shallow as fuck and only offensive with nothing worth saying.

    Honestly Wiger should probably be playing the Joker, he clearly fits the psychological profile

    The one in the middle doesn't look like a doughboy though.

    Hahahaha he blocked me for calling him out on it. I'm not going to trust the opinions of a critic who can't take criticism of himself.

    Apparently McWeeny did the same thing with BvS?

    let them say our love is peculiar, don’t care

    Does he have a gag order on details or even a good description of what kind of issues? Or is he being purposefully vague to get attention?

    It really just sounds to me like it’s going to be a very love it or hate it movie and the way people are about those things is obnoxious (to the point I’ve been getting legitimately pissed at friends because it’s fine you don’t like this season of Game of Thrones but good lord it is a tv show just enjoy it or stop watching.)

    Drew: Oh man, this script is such a shit show
    Twitter: What's so bad about it?
    Drew: I can't say, but everyone's gonna hate it when it comes out
    Twitter: So we shouldn't see it?
    Drew: Wait and see the movie so we can have a conversation about it!
