JOKER Producer Michael E. Uslan Believes MR. FREEZE Would Make For A Compelling Movie
Joker was a box office hit, and producer Michael E. Uslan has now opened up about which other Batman villains he believes would be ripe for a big screen adaptation. Mr. Freeze is at the top of his list...
Joker was a bigger hit than anyone ever expected, grossing over $1 billion at the worldwide box office and earning serious awards attention. Now, producer Michael E. Uslan has shared his idea for another villain-led movie starring another of Batman's greatest enemies from the comic books.
Talking during a virtual appearance at Wizard World's "Batman to Joker" panel, Uslan singled out Mr. Freeze as a character he believes could work on the big screen.
"One of my favorite episodes of Batman: The Animated Series, which I love, absolutely love, dealt with Mr. Freeze and the loss of his wife," he explained. "The empathy, the emotions that that created, I could see [making a movie]."
There's definitely potential there, though some fans might argue that Mr. Freeze would be better off battling the Dark Knight in a movie.
In Batman: The Animated Series, Mr. Freeze's origin story was explored in great detail, while he would later star in direct-to-video movie spinoff, Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero.
