One of the things I love about the joker as a character is that he doesn’t have a definitive origin and is basically a man with no past. A psychotic and chaotic force of nature that spawned from nothing besides the rotten city he wreaks havoc in. But I also love cinema, else world stories and takings risks. I know an origin of the joker may defeat the mystique of him. Every time we’ve learned more about his life before the joker it’s been a lie or unreliable. But the vibe of just this clip, the people involved creatively and, Joaquin phoenix being one of the best currently working actors playing the role of the man that becomes the joker. I want to see how he gets there. Y’all can make of me if I end up being wrong but I think we have another Logan on our hands in the sense that this doesn’t just seem like a money grab or “just a comic book/super hero movie” and although it’s about a clown, it’s being taken seriously and they’re just trying to a make good film. Also low key seems like a “The King Of Comedy” reimagining.
Consider me hyped. @toddphillips1
