Well, fuck. Not one day after I write my article listing five characters that should get their own Star Wars spinoffs, DC pulls a curveball and announces the origin movie just about zero people in the world want to see: The Joker! Needless to say, twitter is in full shotgun-in-mouth mode. Let’s take a look at some of my favorites:
I sense a tiiiiiiny bit of sarcasm from Mike Ryan here, especially considering how lackluster and boring my childhood was.
Damn, a blight on society, you’d think the guy was a homicidal mass murderer or something? Calm it down, Leah.

*unless they are a drawing.

And last but not least, my stupid ass had to chime in:
Calm down you big goon, you’re yelling about comic book movies, Jesus Christ.
