I will eagerly await the teaser. Poster looks interesting… I kind of like the minimalist/theatrical look.

I think it’ll be pretty interesting to dive deeply into the mind of someone like the Joker.
I can’t wait to see it!

@iJest The poster made my excitement for this movie jump up. I was always interested, but that made me think it could be something really special.

@KittyKrawler That character exploration is going to be a hell of a ride.

@Vroom Yeah, curiosity level is on high.

Just saw it. I had my doubts about this movie, but I liked the teaser. I like that they’ve taken a step back and went with ‘classic’ Joker style. I didn’t like the character styling from Suicide Squad. So I have high hopes for this one.

It definitely looks interesting. I liked Joaquin’s laugh. I have a feeling he’ll get back at the jerks that stole his sign and assaulted him.

This looks like a film! Like, a full on piece of art with social examination and something to say. Where is all the outrage about how this is a fantasy for kids and the shock that anyone would have the audacity to take the material seriously?

Anyway, this looks amazing, frightening, and beautiful. I cannot wait.

I love the imagery in the trailer. My favorite is how Arthur struggles going up the steps because it’s an uphill battle trying to be good and do what’s right for him. When he comes down the steps, he’s joyous and vibrant. It comes naturally for him to descend into the darkness.

I just can’t get into it. It feels like the King of Comedy but with less development and worse writing. Every character feels so shallow with little to no development outside of their relationship with Arthur. It’s blunt with it’s message with little subtlety. And even the message it pushes is kind of meaningless since the world it takes place in is so superficial and artificial that it can’t be applied to reality. Joaquin Phoenix is great and the cinematography is beautiful, but I just don’t see what everyone else sees in it. And I certainly don’t think it deserves Oscar or Golden Globe nominations when films like Midsommar, Honey Boy, The Lighthouse, etc. are undoubtedly going to be ignored.
