The Scarecrow by Dawson Joyce; Based on Characters from DC

Another one of various ideas I've had of what could be done with DC's library of popular and beloved characters, following the recent success of Joker, to make for compelling films that could capture said characters' essence and nuance even without directly following any kind of source material.

For this one, the basic idea is that this would be a purely psychological hard-R horror thriller, relying very heavily on tricks of the mind as well as the power of perception. This would be an origin story detailing Dr. Jonathan Crane's abuse at the hands of his great-grandmother Mary Keeny and bullies from school, his fascination with psychology (being mentored by Hugo Strange), and how he came to be called the Master of Fear.
