Get yourself some NEW Theory Wear!! ► bit.ly/2N1m7V7
This year we are getting a seemingly brand new take on the classic Batman villain, the Joker. This version stars Joaquin Phoenix as a failed comedian named Arthur Fleck - a new name for the old character. People are saying it's a whole new origin story for the Joker and I think that's true... but maybe not in the way most people are thinking. I think this Joker is not actually REAL! What do I mean? You're about to find out!

Hmm, interesting...I wonder if the big reveal at the end is that he is imagining himself to be the Joker, not because he is the Joker, but because he knows about Joker from the comic books?

If this is what the joker movie will end up being. This will probably become one of my top favorite movies of all time. Aside from Amadeus and Silence of the Lambs.

I hope you’re wrong. I want a relatable character. Someone growing and raising. Not some delusional person shuffling around around.

That actually makes it better not only showing how Arthur behaves but what he experiences showing what his life is like in his eyes can help you understand what happened to him to me its a good idea but thats an opinion

You seem to be right. The joker of then and who he wants to be and eventually becomes. How he came to be what he is in Gotham today.

You got this whole movie twisted bruh. He is going to be tormented by other humans in such horrible, terrifying, and scarring ways. He will lose the attachment ability that normal humans possess. He will start giving 0 fucks and then Viola! Society will have successfully created the most notorious psychopath.

I thought that this would be one of the many origin stories the Joker makes up in his head. One of the multiple choice ones. I definitely enjoyed this video.

I think that the joker is mad. He is crazy but he laughs and smiles to hide the sadness and craziness behind his smile and switching between happy and crazy faxes makes him go mad. That’s why he jerks around and switches personalities so much and because of all of his insecurities he turned to the joker. He makes super unnerving movements and he is unpredictable which makes him so terrifying it shows what society can do to an outsider. It puts chills down my spine. I love it. The switch from imagination to reality is amazing. you don’t know if he is good or bad

I got a Joker ad when mat said the last line of the trailer. It was the same line in the ad. Coincidence? I think not

It could be that as it takes things from the king of comedy and the killing in which after describing the whole joker origin he just says " Sometimes I remember it one way and sometimes I remember it another . If I am gonna have a past I prefer it to be multiple choice."

I do all of these symptoms I think I have schizophrenia
Maybe everything really is happening in his head just hallucinations and what of this Joker is the joker that the batman Joker was inspired basically an inspiration for the Batman Joker or who ever is to become the joker
DrHotShot Day ago
If i find out that all the things he does as Joker r just in his mind. Im gonna be upset cause i really want him to do the things

I know why Batman never kills joker. If this is the backstory he knows that he is just affected by society and he is just mentally ill....depressing

The real joke is that we have not seen a live adaptation of the killing joke yet.
Sekiberius Welkesh
this is a story of how the world creates evil, and that evil isn't born, it's created. it's showing how the world turned the man into the joker.
