Seth Rogen Comments On WB/DC's Supposed "No Jokes" Policy

The comedian of Neighbors and This Is The End fame seems to have just debunked the recent rumors. Check it out.

Recently, speculation suggesting that Warner Bros. has issued a "no jokes" policy on their DC properties has picked up. While the phrase could mean a number of things, at face value it sounds fairly absurd to apply that to 10+ writers and their films. But the rumor has been given life by outlets such as Badass Digest and Hitfix.

Seth Rogen (The Interview, Pineapple Express) has commented on the topic and offered his own denial of the rumor.

 

Was Rogen, perhaps with his writing partner Evan Goldberg, approached for a DC superhero property? That may be a stretch. Regardless, Rogen is firmly entrenched in Hollywood circles and seems like he could have more insight on the topic than movie bloggers.

You’ll notice that he calls bullshit on SlashFilm’s headline “Warner Bros. rules out funny superhero movies.” That would seem to refute everything from the literal interpretation of "zero jokes allowed” to the more general interpretation of “no funny superhero movies.” And while you may think that Rogen is simply misplacing any directives he has received on his upcoming Preacher series, keep in mind that Preacher is being produced by Sony, not Warner Bros.
