Former DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson Praises ‘Joker’

Early this summer, DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson left Warner Bros. after being with the company for 22 years.  Now, Nelson is back on social media as a fan and had nothing but praise for one of the recent video clips from Joker that was released.

The video in question showed Joaquin Phoenix’s camera test and Nelson had nothing but praise for the movie.

“LOVE IT! Great story, great actor, specific and string vision from talented director.  What DC should have been doing since Nolan.  Even if diehard fans struggle with his vision. #goodmoviesaregoodmovies

When asked if the tweet was an attack at movies made by Zack Snyder during his time with DC Films, Nelson responded:

“I happen to count Zack Snyder among those things, if you are insinuating otherwise.  No snake here…”

In the past, DC execs have had very little influence on the DC movies that Warner Bros. makes, but for the first time in two decades, Diane Nelson can finally giver her honest opinion.
