the wikipedia for the movie has some insights. they say that this is gonna be a standalone film, not part of the whole "justice league extended universe" story that they're...attempting. i guess DC wants to have some of these darker, one off, "experimental" stories that are just there on their own.

also this

Quote:
Robert De Niro as Murray Franklin:[9]
A talk show host who plays a role in Arthur's downfall.[10] De Niro said his role in Joker is a homage to his role in The King of Comedy (1982), in which he portrayed a comedian obsessed with a talk show host


the failed comedian aspect would be pulling from alan moore's "the killing joke" but that story also has a lot to do with commissioner jim gordon

There's a King of Comedy angle?

Wow, maybe De Niro will do something good again.

I think DeNiro's a working actor who just happens to have once been a big deal. He probably doesn't care to audition at his age, takes what he's offered, and does a good job at whatever he takes. I can't think of any movie where he's made it worse, and I've avoided the stuff that looks awful. I read an interview with Christopher Walken years ago and he just straight up said unless he's busy he takes whatever he's offered. I imagine that approach also makes more sense the older you get.

bruce campbell
terry crews

That comedian movie he starred in a couple years ago was really bad. I mean, he was ok as an actor, but the whole movie was a cringe-fest, not at all in a good way.

If there were a bracket like that, M Emmet Walsh would be a tough out. Blood Simple, Slap Shot, Fletch, Back To School, Raising Arizona, Blade Runner, The Jerk, Mikey and Nicky.
