This. A company can have a stupid through line guiding them but at the end of the day if a product doesn't perform it's getting pulled. And if the company wants to be stubborn then they can suffer for it.Remember, those stupid bastards have been told people want one legged fat black trannies and are offended by everything, and that Joker is for "incels." Looks like those "incels" spend money.
I hope they don't do a sequel to Joker, I liked it and all but I would not want to see Joker in his 50s or 60s trying to go toe to toe with a young Batman (or maybe I would, who knows).
But yeah if DC started doing character explorations that might be tight. Mr. Freeze is pretty prime material if we're sticking with Batman.
