With Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker reportedly existing in his own universe, and Jared Leto’s Joker reportedly out, let’s cast a new Joker for the DCEU!
Civic unrest. Mass protests. America crying for an answer. During the George Floyd protests, Batman was there. Really.
While we were all swirling down the emotional drain watching ‘Joker’, you may have missed these Easter Eggs along the way.
If you are going to complain about ‘Joker’, let’s make sure you are consistent across the body of work instead of picking one instance to become infamous.
You saw ‘Suicide Squad’. You weren’t a fan of Jared Leto’s ‘Joker’. Guess who doesn’t agree with you? Zack Snyder. Changing your mind yet?
Todd Phillips’ ‘Joker’ is perceived to have a bigger opening weekend than ‘Aquaman’. Two reasons why: Joaquin. Phoenix. You’ll see.
Todd Phillips’ movie has created many things, but he probably didn’t plan on the rise of politics and place of film critics to be one of them.
Arthur Fleck. Joker. The Clown Prince of Crime. Call him what you want. You know you’re planning to see him. Here’s what to expect.
From the ashes of a stark-raving clown comes a Phoenix whose goal is only to tell a story. And he will be rewarded for it. You’ll see.
Sometimes, the idea of a movie can make a bigger impact than the movie itself. Unfortunately for fans of ‘Joker’, just ask this reviewer…
You want a realistic look at the Joker? To be realistic, you have to remove the fantasy…or even the comic, just what Phillips is doing.
Come at me, DC. I not only have a fueled opinion about Suicide Squad but also proof about the death of this film.
In 2012, tragedy happened because of a CBM. In 2019, we will see another…hopefully, just a movie. Maybe not, if you ask others.
With ‘Joker’, we are going to get more than an amazing film; we are getting the template to how to make these moving forward.
Todd Phillips may provide fans of DC’s most enigmatic villain a true glimpse into his soul. And, we’re going to love it.
