DC Developing Condiment King Movie After Joker’s Success
The success of Warner Brothers latest DC venture Joker has many wondering, “what’s next?”. Well, the next step has been revealed, and its one that is sure to delight legions of hardcore DC fans.
The Condiment King was originally created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini for the wildly popular Batman: The Animated Series as a minor comic relief villain and throwback to the Adam West era of Batman camp.
However, the Condiment King has since gone on to become one of the most wildly popular and successful villains of all time, selling millions of copies of various comic books, and making his feature film debut in a minor role in The Lego Batman Movie.
The Condiment King was rated as the number one supervillian of all time by the CIA.
Now, a new live-action film is set to use Joker as its inspiration for a Condiment King origin story, but it might not just be inspiration. In his original iteration, the Condiment King was also a failed stand-up comedian who was recruited by the Joker. Could this new version take inspiration from Phoenix’s character in a direct sequel?
Daniel Day Lewis, Finn Wolfhard and the ghost of River Phoenix are all said to be in talks for the lead role.
The King of Condiments is set to hit theatres in October 2021
