LOL, "piss poor Joker attempt?" Heath Ledger's Joker was critically acclaimed, and was a more down to earth or "realistic" version of what Joker would be like if he existed in the real world...or as realistic as someone like Joker could be.

I'm guessing Marvel will go this route but there's no reason why superhero movies need to be rebooted all the time. Superheroes are timeless stories, no one wants to see the new "origin" of Spider-Man or Batman, we all know them already.

They should do "soft" reboots at best if they killed an important character they can just weasel out of that one somehow through a retcon or whatever. No reason to "end" superhero movie series, they don't need an ending, we all knew who James Bond was even when they changed actors and even the mood of the stories, it should be the same with superhero movies. Things "technically" happened. I guess 007 isn't the best example since it was rebooted with Daniel Craig but whatever.

It's the ever-present problem of Conservative vs Transformative.

Do we always have Bruce Wayne be Batman,....even though the whole thing that makes him great is that he's just a smart dude with a whole lot of disposable income?

Do we want him to move from where his is, in his prime, or do we want to tell different types of stories using his world as a backdrop.

Neither is a perfect option.
Though young people might think otherwise.

You smoking crack again????? joking....

But I feel like DKR is still a great film that was the sequel to perhaps the best comic book based movie ever made. Also DKR is better than any other DC movie besides (Batman Begins, TD) imo wonder woman could be argued to be better than TDK, but I feel like the villain in wonder woman was an incredible disappointment.

As far as rebooting the DCEU I would really hate to lose Gadet as Wonder Woman, bc she has done an amazing job in everything she has appeared in had WW.

I remember wondering if they were going to continue the ASM series by killing Peter and soft rebooting it with Miles. This was before the Disney talks were public knowledge of course.
