New Details On The Types Of Stories DC Films' New Banner Will Explore After THE JOKER

Warner Bros. is launching a new DC Films banner which kicks off with an origin story for The Joker and new details have now been revealed about the types of stories the studio plans on telling with that.

Warner Bros. has yet to confirm that an origin story for The Joker is in the works or the name of the new DC Films banner which will herald a wave of standalone DC Comics adaptations. However, a new report from Variety points to the studio taking full advantage of the chance to tell some stories set outside of the DC Extended Universe which won't have to adhere to continuity and a shared world.

According to the trade, "the banner is intended to give the studio the chance to expand the canon with unusual story angles." They go on to confirm that the banner will be completely separate from the world of movies like Justice League and Aquaman and that this is part of the studio's plan to focus on "auteur-driven" films rather than being laden in continuity such as those released by Marvel.

So, is this an amazing idea or a sign that Warner Bros. has given up on creating a shared universe? We'll have to wait and see but it's going to be very interesting seeing how this banner comes together. 

After all, movies like Shazam and Batgirl could easily fit into these to avoid being bogged down by continuity but that's surely going to confuse a lot of moviegoers. What do you think? Sound off below.
