Brett Ratner Wants a Joker Spin-Off

Posted: September 25th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Brett Ratner Wants a Joker Spin-OffSubmit Comment
Director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men 3) chatted with MTV News, expressing his interest in comic book movies and potential spin-offs that can be developed from the already established franchises.

"As a kid, Batman was my thing," Ratner said. "I'm a little jealous that I didn't get to direct it, although Nolan did a great job. But there are so many characters in the Batman series, so many characters that I love, that the opportunities for spin-offs are endless."

Ratner believes that the first spin-off should focus on the Joker, which Heath Ledger recently brought to life on the big screen. "Heath was great," he said. "But the Joker is a great villain. That's why Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger had so much to work with. And I think there will be another actor who can interpret that. It would be great to see [Robert] Downey [Jr.] as the Joker, for instance."

Clearly Ratner wants to handle one of these spin-offs. What do you think, can he be trusted to deliver a solid Joker film?

Absolutely not. Brett Ratner already tried to make a comic book movie in X3, and destroyed everything Bryan Singer tried to do in the first two X-Men films. If Ratner directs a Joker movie, it's safe to say that me and MILLIONS of other movie/Joker fans will NOT be going to see it. I mean, do we really want a Joker movie from the guy who made the Rush Hour movies? I think not.

Casper's right. This guy screwed up X3, and he's been denied the last three movies he's wanted to make. He shouldn't be allowed to even look at a Batman screenplay. Jeez, get him away.

Brett Ratner is the cinematic anti-christ and has the delicate touch of a burrito sh*t. This is his third proclamation in as many weeks about developing an idea he clearly couldn't create himself. He is an insipid fool and let us pray for sterility in his loins.

I think Ratner would do a great job at RUINING IT!! He needs to stick to the crap movies that he makes and stay away from something as genius as The Joker and the new Batman Franchise..

It's funny because he obviously doesn't keep up on Downey Jr news. He must have missed the whole "DC sucks" fiasco.

Obviously it would be the irrelevant MTV news that would to take Brett's opinions as any form of news that anyone would care about. Ratner needs to stop, in all sense of the word. He's a low rate bore of a so called, technically speaking, cough, director. The only time he ever presented anything to the equivalent of being competent was the hack job of Red Dragon. Otherwise it's the usual commercial by the books pandering uninspired trash like Rush Hour that he makes, which he can call his lame, cough, style. This guy's ideas are interesting only as comedy lines for any character played on any program as that person who finds entertainment types and pitches crap at inappropriate times. The mere idea of having someone like Nolan mentioned next to Ratner, even in a sentence, is a sad sad joke. Nolan could direct an Oscar caliber film in a coma next to Ratner fully awake, aware and fully financed. I think I'm more shocked here by the audacity of Ratner to mention himself next to someone as talented as Nolan or even have any form of opinion on a talented person like Nolan's body of work. In closing, I'd say that Ratner is a low rent version of Edward D. Wood Jr., no joke.

I'm a fan of the Rush Hour series (well I haven't seen the third one yet), but Ratner needs to just sit back and wait for something that actually sounds like a good idea. I mean honestly, a Guitar Hero movie? And now he wants to pawn the Joker off to someone else (and mentioning a person who is already in a good comic book movie). He just needs to shut up.

Brett Ratner needs to die now!! Ok heres why... #1. X-men 3 #2. Rush Hour 3 #3. He is going to direct Beverly Hills Cop 4 (Nooo!) #4. He thinks robert downey jr. would be a good joker? #5. Look what he did to prison break (its dead now) #6. Codename: The Cleaner #7. Running Scared (paul walker..enough said) The list goes on and on and on people. Enough of this stupid piece of sh*t. He needs to stop making movies/tv shows or anything that will be viewed by human eyes. Just take a look at his track record and you will agree. Brett Ratner needs to be thrown, screaming from a helicopter!
