Lois Lane has a hot scoop to report: Amy Adams is out of the DC universe.

It should tell you something that we have run multiple versions of these reminder guides for the state of Warner Bros.’s DC Entertainment movie universe.

As much as diehard fans of Warner Bros.’ DC movies might not want to admit it, the fact of the matter is that most of the studio’s films so far have been, well, not great.

Jared Leto's Joker took the biggest hit - making the much-hyped "method" character a glorified cameo. Now, director David Ayer is shining another light on the villain-that-could-have-been, revealing how the Joker's schemes originally included an alliance with Enchantress herself.
