There’s a lot to process about Matt Reeves’ superhero noir The Batman — from its emo Bruce Wayne, to the built-in pet carriers on Catwoman’s motorcycle, to... well, everything Paul Dano’s doing as the Riddler. But as I’ve sat with everything I witnessed during the film’s (yes, very long) run, one thought has increasingly begun to haunt me: Are we really getting another Joker? Another? (Spoilers ahead!) Honestly, I was already struggling with the whole flooding Madison Square Garden segment of The Batman by the time we got to its most stunning reveal. We’ve already seen two movie Jokers in the past decade—Jared Leto debuted his Hot Topic-infused take on the character in 2016’s Suicide Squad , and Joaquin Phoenix took home for Best Actor for playing the chaotic clown in 2019’s Joker . And that’s saying nothing of Heath Ledger’s performance —which won the actor the same award posthumously after his tragic death in 2008—or Jack Nicholson’s celebrated turn in the … [Read more...] about ‘The Batman’ Teases a New Joker.

CALIFORNIA. (CW44 News At 10 | CNN) — Gavin Newsom and Ron DeSantis aren’t just avatars for the different futures of their parties, but also for the separate realities blue and red Americans are living in — two people of opposing viewpoints looking at the exact same set of facts and coming to vastly different conclusions. They’re both governors, rising stars and speculated soon-to-be presidential candidates, building out micro-ideological models in their sunny capitals. READ MORE: Ukrainian Forces Withdraw From Lysychansk In ever-blue California, Newsom, the son of a state appellate judge, has rebooted from his start as a flashy progressive hero around quieter legislative pushes. Meanwhile, in reddening Florida, there’s DeSantis, the son of a Nielsen box salesman, who in public cleaves less to his two Ivy League degrees than to the anti-elitist, reactionary politics that have consumed the GOP. Newsom now is going on the air against DeSantis in Florida — with what he says is … [Read more...] about Gavin Newsom Goes On The Air Against Ron DeSantis As Political Rivalry Grows
The leader of the incels, Monsieur Todd Phillips himself, has crashed Pride Month this year. What a shame. Can’t we celebrate in peace? Is nothing sacred? Yesterday, the anti-woke director revealed his plans for a sequel to his controversial box office hit in an Instagram carousel post, the first photo revealing a screenplay cover and the second showing Joaquin Phoenix smoking a cigarette while reading it (lovely). In any case, get ready for Joker: Folie Á Deux . Did Todd Phillips realize the harm he was causing when he announced this news? Did he even pause to think about how, for the next few years, we’ve just got to sit, waiting, worrying, dreading the next release of Joker 2 news? And without any “Are you in the right headspace to receive information that could possibly hurt you?” warning in sight. What a mess. There have been countless Joker stories —both within and outside of the Batman universe—and yet, here we go again, painting our silly little … [Read more...] about I Can’t Believe They Announced Joker 2 During Pride
AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A Black man shot and killed by Akron police officers in a hail of bullets following a vehicle and foot pursuit was unarmed at the time of the shooting, but a shot appeared to have come from the vehicle during the pursuit, and officers said they feared he was preparing to fire when they discharged their weapons, authorities said. Police on Sunday released video the mayor called “heartbreaking” of the pursuit and shooting of Jayland Walker, 25, while pleading for peace and patience from the community while the state investigation into the shooting continues. It was not yet clear how many shots were fired, but Walker sustained more than 60 wounds. An attorney for Walker’s family said he was on the ground while officers continued to fire.
