    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.

    the killing joke is basically a Joker Origin I'd be okay if they gave us that adaption...

      apparently Phillips will base this movie from the killing joke & azzarello's joker and some gangster/mafia movies.

    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:)

    It's important to remember that this movie is an Elseworld's like concept/approach. Meaning that whatever origin they give the Joker is not canon.

    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'm worried the Joker solo movie will be great and everyone will want him to replace Leto in the DCEU and calling for it to happen in Flashpoint like with Affleck's replacement.

    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...

    DC should just scrap the DCEU and do stuff like this. It could actually be great. The later on they can do cross over movies here and there. They don’t need to build a huge cinematic universe.

  • Andres Garcia
    Andres Garcia 25 days ago

    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

  • Mercyful Media

    I have mixed feelings here: I would love to see Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker but then again the Joker isn’t supposed to be understood, so watching a movie trying to understand him... idk.
    Of course if it turns out to be a huge success we all know what that means right ? Yes, a Batman movie with of course Phoenix.
    Now I’m intrigued.

  • Naruku2121
    Naruku2121 27 days ago

    Hm, figure an Origin story is kind of one of the weakest things they can do for the Joker, I mean there's so many different one's that on occasion even he doesn't know which one's the case. Though the most Common thing was the Stint was being tricked into the Redhood gang. If they start him off as a meek comedian and got wrapped up into a bad group. Show Batman very sparingly in the film then say the final act that way in essence you can be clever and make Batman the 'Villain' of the film and the horrors unleashed as a result of a tragic poor guy who was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

  • John Soda

    I think DC might be going for a Multiverse approach to their movies. Like we have the DCEU which is the main universe and then we’ll get movies like this one that are alternate universes.

    I want this movie to be through the Joker’s eyes. I don’t want there to be a definitive origin, per se. I need it to be like American Psycho, mainly in the aspect that you’re not always sure if the scenes are actually happening or if they’re in Bateman’s head

    Yep, I do think Joaquin is a good actor and he definetly can work a decent Joker. However, the unexplained stuff is there; why are they doing this? what are they doing?. There is the small posibility that the fan theory about two or three Jokers is real, so time will tell.
