Legendary Horror filmmaker and screenwriter John Carpenter will write a comic issue for DC comics. And guess what? The main character to be penned down is another Legend ‘, Joker’.
John’s comic will be named The Joker: Year of the Villain #1, and it will be included in DC comic universe. This comic will be a part of the event name ‘Year of the Villain’. This event is held every year by DC comics, in which the smartest man on Earth (DC comicverse) and the arch-nemesis of Superman holds an event.
In this event held by ‘Lex Luthor’, he tries to give an offer which can’t be refused. This offer is given to both heroes and villains. Previous ‘Year of the Villain’ included The legion of Doom too with Lex Luther. Also, the evil intentions of Lex are not limited to Earth as he took this message all around the universe.
Well, to fit Joker in his rooster, Lex will need a more ‘Insane’ offer. However, Joker has his plans for Gotham. It is to see who tricks whom. The clown prince of Gotham or the Smartest man in the face of Earth.
The Joker will be penned down by John and Anthony Burch. Burch’s other works include the famous ‘Borderlands 2’. John was interviewed on this achievement. He commented,
“The Joker is the greatest villain in comics, I’m proud to be reunited with Anthony on this project.”
John has already worked on some pretty awesome movies before, some of them are, The Fog, The Thing and Halloween. Some of his work was also rebooted later.
