JOKER Producer Michael E. Uslan Believes MR. FREEZE Would Make For A Compelling Movie

Joker was a box office hit, and producer Michael E. Uslan has now opened up about which other Batman villains he believes would be ripe for a big screen adaptation. Mr. Freeze is at the top of his list...

Joker was a bigger hit than anyone ever expected, grossing over $1 billion at the worldwide box office and earning serious awards attention. Now, producer Michael E. Uslan has shared his idea for another villain-led movie starring another of Batman's greatest enemies from the comic books. 

Talking during a virtual appearance at Wizard World's "Batman to Joker" panel, Uslan singled out Mr. Freeze as a character he believes could work on the big screen. 

"One of my favorite episodes of Batman: The Animated Series, which I love, absolutely love, dealt with Mr. Freeze and the loss of his wife," he explained. "The empathy, the emotions that that created, I could see [making a movie]."

There's definitely potential there, though some fans might argue that Mr. Freeze would be better off battling the Dark Knight in a movie.

In Batman: The Animated Series, Mr. Freeze's origin story was explored in great detail, while he would later star in direct-to-video movie spinoff, Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero

As well as producing Joker, Uslan also worked on Tim Burton's Batman movies and will serve as an executive producer on Matt Reeves' The Batman (which has been pushed back to 2022).
