Mash-Up #69

Three times a week I randomly generate two dates, hunt down covers from those dates and then mash them together and force the results on you lovely people, while giving a hat-tip to the wonderful Super-Team Family blog which has been doing this for years (and a lot better) on an almost daily basis.

This won’t be the first time Dr Strange tries to cure the Joker . . .

And hey, new number and date format as well!

Joker Phoenix Part 2

There’s a video posted by Hollywood Pipeline of Joaquin Phoenix in full costume and make-up as the Joker; you can see it here and there’s some photos here.

I am all for saying “let’s wait and see” and I try not to go all raging internet fanboy but this . . .

. . . just looks like a little too close to this . . .

for my liking.

For the record, I have never liked the Adam West Batman series – if you think it’s wonderfully ironic and delightfully camp in retrospect, you are wrong: the entire bloody thing was dreadful.

Watch the video, though – the protesters are holding signs referencing “clown town” and “clown makes me frown” and “clown mayor” . . not a mention (that I could see) of the Joker.

Is he going to be known as the Clown in this film?! I’d say surely not but then I would have said that neither Superman nor Batman ever kill anyone, either . . .
