Wow. We’ve seen some very different takes on both Batman and his arch nemesis The Jonet over the years. Most of which have been iconic, some silly and some downright dumb. Now, from producer Martin Scorsese, and Hangover Director Todd Phillips comes a story that will “centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
Check out the trailer below.
Don’t know about you, but I get a very Caesar Romero vibe (from the Batman Tv show) only in a sad, deranged way. There will be no Batman (we think) and this film will stand alone from the rest of the DC Universe. It’s a bold move, but Joker is a bold character. This film seems to be playing out as a flat out character study, and when it comes to The Joker there is no character more interesting than him. The new movie will hit theaters on October 4th, 2019.
