There have been more than a few Joker fan films popping up online recently. The latest is Injustice for All from White Hand Films. It’s a very intense 20 minute featurette that tells an original Joker story. ****WARNING: NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY****
With the popularity of the Suicide Squad movie, it makes sense a wave of fan films featuring characters from the movie would suddenly gain a lot of attention online. The Laughing Man, a fan film based on Scot Snyder’s Death of the Family comic book arc has arrived, and it is pretty heavy stuff.
The Suicide Squad movie opens in August, and there is a lot of buzz surrounding the movie, the characters, and especially Jared Leto’s take on the Joker. Hot Toys isn’t waiting for the movie release to show off it’s love for the Joker in a new sixth scale figure.

As you watch the second season of Fox’s Gotham (which begins tonight), be sure to keep your eyes peeled for something special! Sometime during this season, you’ll see credit being given to Bill Finger, often referred to as “the co-creator” and “co-architect” of the Batman mythology.
