The Joker has long been an iconic character in the Batman universe, so it comes as no surprise that fans are not impressed with the news that an origins movie is in development. 

On top of that, Hangover director Todd Philips is attached to co-writer and may even direct the flick. 

There is lots of skepticism when a bold move like this is announced, but the reactions so far seem very one-sided, and it will be a miracle if the film even gets made. 

Have a look below at the best internet reactions…
