    I feel like we've already got a joker origin story. I guess I kind of feel the same way about the Batman movies they've been done over and over a thousand times and are old...

    What if Jared leto's joker is the successor to Phoenix joker? Like leto was young and Phoenix joker corrupted him and hence the new younger joker

    To everyone saying Joker has to be a mystery: just because he has an origin doesn’t mean he isn’t intriguing and terrifying. His entire mindset is that one bad day can turn the sanest person in the world into a madman. Now we can see his own bad day.

    If Joaquam is truly the best Joker were was he in 08 hmm...flip out of here with your idiotic mind..
    Heath is the best Joker for me
    He died playing as the Joker. He died without seeing how his performance in Dark Knight..he put every sweat and tears in playing as the don't give me that silly nonsense Joaquin is better 😏

    I think he's gonna go a more corny true to the comics attitude, but hit the ledger level scary moments when he's got a upper hand

  • Your neighborhood friend

    All I want Joker to be is a Black Comedy, not a Horror movie not a Thriller. Make it funny and horrifying and make it simple and grounded. That's all what Joker's about. Oh, and please make it independent from DC Studios' Justice League/Batman or some other movie.
    First make it like an independent plot film and then gradually merge it with the other franchises if REQUIRED at all in terms of artistic point of view, not from an economic point of view.

    I for one would get a kick out of the origin story being the Joker-to-be coming across "The Man Who Laughs" and saying to himself, "Okay, this is gonna be my shtick, the disfigured clown who kicks ass with dramatic monologues . . . and maybe a few deadly weapons, even though those weren't in the book. Thanks, Victor Hugo."

    I want joker to be simular to one of those psychos who murder people in brutal ways in serial killer mpvies. I want it to be very gory and very dark. We want people to know that this is what joker is truly like, this twisted psychopath who murders lots of innocents people and bad people without having any mercy. Look at Michael myars and the other serial killers, make joker simular to them and as dark and creepy ad them, at the same time give him that joker personality that we all love. Don't forget to make joker's laugh sound as creepy as possible.

    I think it´s the best actor now to play The Joker is Cameron Monaghan he is Perfect to play the younger Joker in the Origin-Story..Joaquin Phoenix is a very good actor but I do not see the joker in him. Monaghan is only 24 years old and play 2 various Joker´s with a lot of acting experience like Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Cesar Romero and Jared Leto. I think that would be the best for The Joker-Origin-Story with 3 Jokers:) 20years old Joker Cameron Monaghan, 40years old Joker Joaquin Phoenix and 60years old Joker Robert De:)

    You know what would he cool, imagine if they started making a bunch of stand alone villain movies like joker, riddler, penguin , then somehow connect them all later and introduce batman sort of like opposite of how mcu started but this time the villains connect the dceu. But obviously choose different dceu actors now.

    I want a real Joker origin story attempt even showing him as a kid. I feel that could be it's entire show if done right, but regardless I'm super excited to see how this new movie turns out. Thanks for the heads up, great video ^.^

    The first movie I saw where Joaquin Phoenix starred on was Gladiator. At that time I was on my early teens and I hated him so much that I avoided all of his movies. But now that I'm a bit older, I just realized that the reason why I hated him so much is that he's a pretty damn good actor -- so good that his role as a villain there was very convincing. Also, props to the writer, director and the people who created that movie, it was really good.
    Basically, with the upcoming movie and Joaquin Phoenix on board, I'm pretty sure he'll nail it.
    Please oh please, keep the political shit away from this movie. That's all I ask. Just let this movie be what it wants to be.

    I honestly don’t agree with that. I think an origin story of The Joker can be done it just has to be executed correctly. In The Killing Joke Origin Story, the reader got some insight into a possible past to The Joker.

    I Loved The Origin Because It Seems More Interesting And Realistic Since It gave his character some humanity and believability, You were able to connect and Understand him, making it even more of a tragedy when you see his descent into the crazy, nihilistic psychopath he his today.
    The Joker is the polar opposite to Batman in design and personality but both have implied horrific backstories that drive them.
    If we ever get more personal insight into Jokers character/backstory it would make the dynamic between Joker and Batman even more interesting looking at the perspective of what Batman could have become.
    But that's the problem That I Don't Like About The Joker, To Be Honest, if you try to make the joker exist without a reason then that's just boring.
    I Find The Joker To Be More Interesting when The Joker tries to prove that A Nobody is as good as they say they are. To Me, The Joker Is More Interesting When He was a normal guy that they had one bad day and it just broke him.
    To Me, That's what makes the Joker so interesting because he was a normal nice guy and then he became such a monster in After One Bad Day.
    The Joker To Me Would Be More Interesting Because Something OR Someone Drove Him to that point.
    Just like Batman. Both Characters Don't Just Cause Chaos Or Save People For No Reason At All Like The Joker!
    To Me That's What I Love About The 2 Characters, Trauma took them to that Place.
    Beside's...Who cares if The Joker's past isn't totally blank to us?
    The Joker's value as a character doesn't waver over whether or not we know something about him.
    Just My Opinion Guys...If You Like The Joker Better When He Doesn't Have A Origin That's Fine, I Respect That, But To Me I Find It To Be Dull About The Joker...Yes, it can be Interesting At First And It's Fun to imagine what made him go down this path...but at times it can be Less Interesting and A Little ridiculous.
    Sometimes it seems that Joker isn’t actually insane but just kills because he wants to make him seem like a villain for the sake of being a villain...Which Is Very Boring Honestly...
    Remember It's Just My Honest Opinion, You Don't Have To Agree With Me On This If You Like The Joker Better When He Doesn't Have A Origin That's Fine, I Respect That.
    But To Me, The Joker Is A Insane Maniac, And Whether He Has No Origin Or Has An Origin, It doesn't take it away, At least to me that's the case...

    Ledgers already set the standard of what it takes to be the joker, but I feel like he'll do fine every live action joker has been different. Jack Nicholason represented the comical side, ledger set the chaotic side, and I feel like Phoenix can set a more thriller side of joker.

    P.S. we never speak of leto's joker
