WILL GREEK GODS BE FEATURED IN THE DCEU?

Published

After writing my last entry about about the possibility of DCEU “Taking things over the top” I started to wonder. What are the chances of Greek Mythology actually spilling into the DC Cinematic Universe? Greek Mythology has always been one of my favorite topics. And since Diana Prince has been revealed to be the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta, the floodgate of possibilities for future movies has been opened.

Of course,  Marvel has already traveled this path, bringing Norse Mythology into the MCU. Going as far to include Thor directly into their storylines. Even though there are some slight changes to the mythology. Marvel has morphed the idea of Asgardiansbeing Gods to the idea that they are an advanced alien civilization that has a firm grip on science and the technology to prolong life.

 In 2011 DC Comics relaunched as the “New 52” which made Zeus a prominent figure in the Wonder Woman Universe. Originally Diana was told she was made of clay. But later was revealed to be the daughter of Zeus. DC Comics even went so far as to have Zeus interact with heroes of the Universe.

It raises the question, will DC make an attempt to incorporate Greek Gods into future films? I for one think it would be interesting. The problem is, how do you incorporate them, without making them omnipotent. Marvel has the right formula by making them advanced aliens. DC can’t copycat that formula, otherwise I feel it will only come off as an attempt to move in the direction of Marvel, that won’t be met well by fans.

There are some great story arcs though, that could fuel the relationship between Superman and Wonder Woman:

All in all, I think it would be awesome. And could make for some interesting movie dialogue. One way I could see this working, is to have Zeus stand by one of his major rules, which is, Gods do not interfere in the affairs of Mankind (Even though they Do). So the Gods could be witnessing all the terrible things happening on Earth via Steppenwolf and Darkseid but will never intervene.

Do you think Greek Gods should make an appearance in the DCEU?

Bruce Wayne Is Dead: The Unused ‘Joker’ Ending That Would Have Made For A Much Darker Film

Published

on

2019’s ‘Joker,’ which has now been nominated for multiple Golden Globes, including “Best Actor” and Best Motion Picture – Drama,” has continued to surprise fans. The film has garnered large success, recently surpassing the $1billion milestone at the box-office, on a relatively small production budget of $50-70 mil. While ‘Joker’ is said to be a one and done film, Joaquin Phoenix and Director Todd Phillips haven’t quite ruled out the possibility of a second installment. ‘Joker,’ is also expected to receive multiple nominations at the Academy Awards as well.

During a recent podcast of Fatman Beyond, Kevin Smith shared a little insider information about one alternate ending that could have pushed ‘Joker’ even further to the dark side. Smith had this to say:

So [Arthur’s] in the hospital and he laughs, chuckles. And the lady goes, ‘What’s so funny?'” Smith recalled. “And he says, ‘I was just thinking of something funny.’ What was supposed to happen was, you flashed back to the death of Thomas and Martha Wayne. And it was him killing Thomas and Martha Wayne. And [Bruce] was screaming and crying. And [Joker] turned to walk away, then he turned back, shrugged, and shot the kid. CREDITS.

This ending would have surely solidified any potential connection to Batman in a future sequel. But, what this tells us, is Todd Phillips wasn’t ready to completely throw away the idea of pitting a future matchup between Phoenix’s Joker with some incarnation of Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Do you think this would have made for a better ending? Or do you like the connection that Phillips left, with Joker’s ideology being the catalysts that kills Martha/Thomas Wayne and births Batman?
