2019, DC Films et al

Director/producer Todd Phillips teamed up with writer Scott Silver to create a totally different origin story for Batman's nemesis. The result was a smash hit, becoming the first R-rated film to make over a billion. What's so remarkable about it is, aside from references to Gotham City and Thomas Wayne, it's not the slightest bit comic-book-like; there's narry a superhero to be found. While quite excessive in the violence department, it's worth watching for Joaquin Phoenix's admittedly over-the-top performance.
