Joker director: we’ve done our own thing and we know people are going to be angry

Joker director: we’ve done our own thing and we know people are going to be angry
There are always a group of fans, of any media, who react angrily when the material is transformed into another media. Mostly this now happens when books are turned into movies / TV, and more recently comics doing the same.
 
So step forward Todd Phillips, whose Joker movie is taking an R-rated look at comic’s all time classic villain, but in a way they don’t is going to piss people off and they don’t care:
 
“We didn’t follow anything from the comic-books, which people are gonna be mad about,” he said to Empire. “We just wrote our own version of where a guy like Joker might come from. That’s what was interesting to me. We’re not even doing Joker, but the story of becoming Joker. It’s about this man.”
 
Which, given the way comics themselves chop and change what they do, feels perfectly acceptable. We assume he’s renting a bunker for the release date.
