Does WB Have A "No Jokes" Policy With Their DC Comic Book Movies?

No, I'm not kidding. Drew McWeeny of Hit Fix has heard on multiple occasions that Warner Bros. has implemented a "No Jokes" policy with their comic book movies. Check it out.

Drew McWeeny of Hit Fix has posted a new and intriguing article today. He has heard on multiple occasions that Warner Bros. has applied a "No Jokes" policy when it comes to their upcoming slate of DC comic book movies.
Last week was about the fifth time I've heard that there is a mandate at Warner Bros. regarding any of the DC superhero films in development, and it's very simple and direct and to the point.

Just because he has heard of this mandate multiple times doesn't mean Drew believes it is the studios policy. As Drew points out, humor can be a great way to alleviate the tension of a scene as well as allowing for the suspension of disbelief, which is usually required to some degree in a comic book movie. He believes the culprit behind this possible edict is Ryan Reynolds' Green Lantern. It was filled with cheesy one-liners and Reynolds' non-stop quips.

Personally, If this policy is in fact real I would assume Warner Bros. is using it as a way to differentiate its comic book movies from Marvel's. Marvel has made it a point to stuff as many jokes as they can in their films. Heck, just look at Thor: The Dark World and their latest blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy as examples of this. If WB wants to give their DC cinematic universe more of a serious tone I'm all for it. Though, Man of Steel could've used a bit of humor here and there to relieve the tension.

What do you think of this "No Jokes" policy?
