  • DC and Warner Bros released the first teaser trailer for Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix, showing us the dark origins of Arthur Fleck aka the Joker. We’re introduced to Todd Philip’s corner of the DC Universe. We’re introduced to Arthur’s home life and how his failing stand-up career turned him from street performer into the Clown Prince of Crime. We’re also introduced to Zazie Beetz character as well as Brian Tyree Henry, as well as this worlds Arkham Asylum. We’re also introduced to a young Bruce Wayne, Thomas Wayne, and Robert De Niro’s character who is a fun nod to an icon De Niro role from the 80’s. How does A.Fleck turn from man to violent instigator of riots against the police? We’ll find out this October 4th! What easter eggs did you catch in this trailer? Let me know down below.

    Hey folks! Erik here! Sam was awesome and stepped in to break down this Joker trailer while I covered the other stuff this week... and RECOVERED from this cold! I have not dusted away... yet... AND I'm curious to know whether this trailer has won you over on Joaquin Phoenix's Joker, or if a Joker movie without Batman is merely one-half of the story you want?

      Famous Pogo comic strip quote - "We have met the enemy, and he is US!" - maybe a nod to the fact that people's cruelty created the Joker.

    I feel like hiss joker is a mix of Jack Nicholson, and Heath Ledger. It actually looks really good.

    Pogo's could also be for Pogo the clown that's what John Gacy called himself

  • City of Gold and Lead
    City of Gold and Lead 2 months ago

    Not a nod to the Pogo comic strip, it’s a reference to Pogo the Clown A.K.A. John Wayne Gacy, arguably the worst real world clown ever.

    How about Otisburg being in the map? Reference to Ned Beatty’s Otis writing that on Luthor’s map in the original Donner Superman.

    I am a solid MCU person, I have disliked every DC movie in recent years, but this might be the movie that at least puts DC back on the map for me. It looks really good.

    “Pogo’s” comedy club... perhaps something to do with John Wayne Gacy’s clown name: “Pogo”... looks like Flecks makeup is a nod to that as well. Creepy. Can’t wait to see this thing.

    Pogo was John Wayne Gacy's clown name. Gacy was a serial killer and also a clown. Pogo's is a _perfect_ name for the comedy club!

    That's lit I wish in the end somewhere in the wardrobes you can see all of the previous joker outfits from the video games, and movies like Mortal Kombat Vs. DC, and Batman movies with George Clooney. His cult reminds me of the people in V for Vendetta

    Looks like a good excuse for the deranged to copy cat him for real. So I’m not going to go put myself down in a dark theater with a bunch of blood thirsty millennials that see this kind of weirdo as a hero.

    I was all for Joker until I saw Robert DeNiro. Next movie please...

    • Frederik Van Thielen
      Frederik Van Thielen 2 months ago

      It makes perfect sense to cast DeNiro in this movie. Watch Scorseses "The king of comedy". It starred DeNiro and inspired DC's "The killing joke" and probably this movie as well.
