Why So Serious: Warner Bros. Reportedly Orders ‘No Jokes’ In New DC Comics Movies

superman why so serious

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."

Oh Good: The Dark Knight’s Batpod Spotted On Japan’s Roadways

ev1ctox05a1mtzwqtgeo

A Twitter user by the name of Ryuuchan spotted something you don't see every day on the roadways of Japan's Chiba Prefecture last weekend: Batman, in broad daylight, riding around on a Batpod similar to the one from The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

The Batman costume looks spot-on, and while the Batpod isn't quite the design from the movies (it's got three wheels instead of two), it does look pretty doggone cool.

Father Builds Child-Sized Batpod For His Kids, Should Probably Avoid Going To The Movies For A Few Years [Video]

eE48v's experimental Batpod

Listen, I understand wanting to do nice things for your kids, and that's great, but I have to imagine that as a parent, the absolute last thing you want to do is give your children something that makes them more like Batman. You know what that dude's origin is, right? You know how his parents end up, right? I mean, I'm just an uncle, and I can assure you that I have never once attempted to give my nephews any advice about power and responsibility, just in case.

But alas, my thoughts on self-preservation come too late for one father, who has gone out of his way to give his kids one of the Batman's's wonderful toys: an "experimental electric vehicle" that is a straight up child-sized Batpod from The Dark Knight.

Hot Toys Opens ‘The Dark Knight’ Armory With 1/6 Scale Batman, Bruce Wayne And Alfred Pennyworth

TDK Batman Armory Hot Toys Bruce Alfred
Hot Toys

It's been more than five years since Christopher Nolan's second entry in The Dark Knight trilogy seared its definitive take on Batman into a serious amount of cinematic souls, but even after covering its fair share of merchandising ground across all three TDK films, Hot Toys had yet to enter its version of the Batcave. That changes in 2014 as three new 1/6 scale configurations of the movie version of the Batman Armory are set to debut. There'll be a Batman Armory with a 1/6 scale Batman figure, an Armory with a 1/6 scale Alfred Pennyworth figure, and an Armory with 1/6 scale figures of both Alfred and Bruce Wayne. The coolest thing about these sets, however, is that they ALL come with the pieces needed to construct a 1/6 scale Batman or any combination of Batsuit/Bruce/Alfred parts. I think every toy fan is ready to see The Dark Pennyworth Rise from the comfort of their own shelf.

‘The Dark Knight’ Re-Told In The Style Of An 8-Bit Nintendo Game [Video]

The Dark Knight 8-Bit Video
CineFix

 

Maybe it was because Arkham Asylum was in the works at the time or that the mobile game market wasn't quite the powerhouse it is today, but for whatever reason there weren't any The Dark Knight videogame adaptations when the film dropped in 2008. While it's probably for the best that TDK's narrative wasn't reduced to what would've almost had to have been an epic boss battle with Heath Ledger's Joker -- a character intentionally unaffected by Batman's traditional physical violence -- CineFix has found a way to present key scenes from the film in charming 8-bit style.
