DC is back and now it’s doing something very much different and unexpected. Joker is of the most epic villains DC has created so far, Joker is the archnemesis of Batman. All of a sudden this villain gets a standalone movie directed by Todd Phillips who also directed The Hangover franchise. Oscar-Winning Actor Joaquin Phoenix plays Arthur Fleck aka Joker in the movie. Watch the new Joker Trailer.
The trailer is more than extraordinary, its something very much dark and explores the streets of Gotham City. The story bases around a failed comedian Arthur Fleck, who rambles around the streets in a clown costume and is troubled by the thugs in the city. This descends him into madness which further transforms him into a psychopath and mastermind criminal.
The Batman Trilogy of Christopher Nolan showed us an already fuc*ed up Joker, his past was not briefed. But here we are, getting a whole movie that drenches into the formation of Joker and his Psychological mind creation.
Pretty sure the movie has dialogues that will be the used as quotes on social media in the coming future. The Joker Trailer included a bit of the movie where Arthur’s psychiatrist asks him about negatives thoughts, he says, ‘All I have, are negative thoughts’. That is a phenomenal writer.
Joaquin Phoenix said this in an interview last year,
I wouldn’t quite classify this as like any genre. I wouldn’t say it’s a superhero movie, or a studio movie or a … It feels unique, and I think more than anything, and probably the most important thing, is Todd [Phillips] seems very passionate about it and very giving, and so that’s exciting. I think, underneath the excitement of these films, and the size of them, there are these incredible characters that are dealing with real-life struggles. And sometimes that is uncovered and exposed, and sometimes it isn’t, and so I always felt, like, there were characters in comics that were really interesting and deserve the opportunity to be kind of studied. And so I think that’s what Todd sees appealing about this idea.
The cast includes Zazie Beetz, yes the lucky girl from Deadpool 2, she plays Sophie Dumond. The other popular actors in the movie are Robert De Niro, Marc Maron. We’ll get to see a young version of Bruce Wayne played by Dante Pereira-Olson. This young Bruce might turn out to be the Batman who’s movie is scheduled for 2021 release, in which Robert Pattinson plays the role of grown-up Bruce Wayne.
Joker will be theatres on October 4, 2019.
