Warner Bros. says ‘no jokes’ to DC films like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

The Warner Bros. DC films recently have been very dark in tone. The Dark Knight Trilogy and Man of Steel were both very serious films that were light on jokes. Now it looks like there is an actual mandate coming from the company saying “no jokes” to the DC films, according to Hitfix.

The last DC film from Warner Bros. to be heavy on the jokes was Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds. It looks like they wanted to make a big change after that film, which is going to set it apart from the Marvel films. The Marvel films have been great at choosing comedic actors to portray heroic roles. These include Chris Pratt as Star-Lord and Chris Evans as Captain America. The next comedic actor to play the hero role is Paul Rudd as Ant-Man.

Marvel is able to pull it off because of how well each elements are balanced. With Green Lantern, when the tone shifts, it shifts hard. So if Warner Bros. really is having a “no jokes” stance for its DC live-action films because of Green Lantern, then I think they are going about it the wrong way.

What do you guys think? Sound off below.
