    He's meant to play this position, it looks not so much as a comic book movie but an actual origin story for why the jokers always fascinated by the Wayne family. Dope!

    Even if it turns out to be a not so good movie, at least they gave the Joker a real chance with a great actor.

  • Kenz

    If they want to make a killer Joker movie, they should go with the story line from the Killing Joke and make Joker a mixture of Mark Hamill's and Heath Ledger's Joker. Joker from the comics has tragedy upon tragedy as part of his backstory, so all of that would make anyone insane. It would be cool, though, if they would nod to the Heath Ledger Joker forgotten war veteran theory and have Arthur join the military, too.

    I don’t usually get excited over trailers, but this is unbelievable EXCITING! The dual-layered transparent photo AND the map (featuring Otisburg! Lmao) makes this movie a MUST SEE!!! I usually see 3-5 movies a year, and this is my No. 2 must see for next year. #comeonDC #ripstanlee #possiblybetterthanledger

    But if this is an origin movie set in the 80s and Bruce is just a child how is The Joker going to move on to becoming Batmans greatest villain? He'll be old and senile by then lol

    Doing a Joker movie without Batman is like doing a Green Lantern movie without a power ring. I don't understand why everybody is reaching for the tissues and lotion over Commodus in clown makeup. No interest in this movie at all....
