Just jumping on board here.

If they lose Cavill, doesn't that mean they have to lose everyone else?

If you're gonna recast Supes and Batman, then how can this 'universe' carry on? Or is that concept dead now?

Pretty much. It sounds like they're focusing on standalones going forward as that's where they've had the most success. The team up films have been trainwrecks.

I re-watched MOS and BvS (in 3D) over the weekend and for the life of me, I cannot understand why anyone who is a superhero movie fan would not want to continue watching this universe? I love the Marvel universe and that feel, but it was so refreshing to count on a hugely different take on the superhero universe that DC brought us. Why would anyone want to watch more of the same? So disappointing!
A Joker movie without Batman could work, IF it was like one of those "you don't see him until the end" deals where he's there the whole time messing up plans in the background.

Joker is an interesting enough character that he can work without Batman, much like Venom without Spider-Man.

The problem is, The Joker can't exist without Batman. The only way to make it work is either have The Joker somehow tie into Batman origins, or use the "multiple endings" aspect from the comics.

Also Venom is a bad example. Because, unlike The Joker, Venom has an official origin that ties into Spider-Man. Batman and The Joker's origins don't tie at all. They are just complete opposites that attract each other.

Depends on which Batman and which Joker origin.

Maybe you're right, but to me, I just can't feel any motivation to go watch a full-blown movie just on the Joker. Especially since I know Affleck is no longer Batman and there is no casting of a new Batman.

The latest decisions and direction they are taking makes it seem like they are rolling the dice and hoping for a jackpot similar to a second tier character bonanza like GotG and Black Panther from Marvel.... In other words, seems like they have no plan at all and are throwing sh!t against the wall to see what sticks and then planning the next move based on that.

Remains to be seen. Frankly I think you're right, but the Venom movie doesn't look like it'll be good enough to convince people.

I think it is safe to say that they are not going with the Martha origin with this movie. That's for another time.

Problem is there is no wall, and it is the current creative team standing there.

Stuck in a waiting room without headphones.

Dad: Henry Cahill is out as Superman
Daughter: Cavill
Dad: He'll he replaced by Black Panther guy.
Daughter: Chadwick Boseman?

Dad: Guy who played villain.
Daughter: Cool. Superman is Jewish anyway.
Dad: It's ok for this and not Ghost in the Shell.
Daughter: Yes. Too many white people on screen anyway.

Dad and daughter are both Caucasian.

Must be the waiting room for the insane asylum.
"Asked". It's not pronounced as "Axed" or "Aksed". It's pronounced as "Asked". Such intolerable idiocy.

The Joker movie could be a flashback. He might just be in Arkham Asylum in therapy and his life "flashes before his eyes" or he could just be telling someone his story and at the end we find out that someone is the new Batman who just captured him. Anyways, it might be a great opportunity to unveil the new, younger Batman.
