WHY SO SERIOUS: WARNER BROS. REPORTEDLY ORDERS ‘NO JOKES’ IN NEW DC COMICS MOVIES
By Matt D. Wilson
Comics fans have become well acquainted with the notion that sometimes, creative people learn the wrong things from successes. It’s why certain comics have been dominated for going on 30 years by a “dark” and “mature” sensibility that often comes off as grim, self-serious and overcooked.
Well, get ready for that way of thinking to make its way to movie theaters very soon. According to a report at Hitfix, Warner Bros. has a strict rule for its upcoming DC Comics movies: “No jokes.”
What’s particularly surprising is that the rule — which itself is kind of a joke, when you think about it — is that it stems from a failure more than it does a success, at least, according to Hitfix writer Drew McWeeny’s thinking.
So is anyone else ready to watch the joy and fun be sucked out of their favorite characters on the big screen? Or do you like the initiative WB is taking because frivolity is for babies?
I guess you can see my position from reading the question.

…a man’s whose art I hold in the highest regard; Alex Toth. His pursuit of the simplified line is beautiful.

After having a rough August, I bought me 5 pick me ups.
Do to craziness at work and a surprise (but very welcomed) visitor I forgot to post DC History last week. And unfortunately work is still crazy. So I will have to postpone this week’s DC History as well.
However I’m going to try and get to year 2014 by the end of this year. So not only will you get a DC History every Thursday as normal but you’ll also get some surprise DC Histories on any given random day.
Bleed Pink Series: Tim Drake
Justice League by Gary Frank
One of the most anticipated books of the summer comes out next week! Order Grant Morrison's Multiversity #1 today!
Is anyone excited about this? Or does this seem like just another stunt to get money out of you each week?
Edit: Oops, my bad. So I thought this was the third weekly comic series that was coming (that being Earth 2: World’s End and the others being Batman Eternal and the Future one that I don’t feel like look up it’s name) I still want to know if this is something to get excited for. I only heard about it last week in the back of all my issues.

Super cool dudes.
Black Canary and Martian Manhunter (and some Oreos).
And so ends the short, undistinguished career of the Batmouse of Baker Street
