I’m interested in seeing this movie because, as it seems to have become the norm, the Joker’s origin IS multiple choice and it’ll be nice to see another interpretation. I loved what they did on Gotham and I’m eager to see this new and different take.
This does bring up an interesting point, though. All everyone seems to want is The Killing Joke. It’s become the default Joker story. I remember when the trailer for this came out and you had a small group of fans actively pissed off they didn’t directly adapt the Killing Joke origin. There’s this weird cult-like mentality around that story. Maybe it’s because of Alan Moore? What I find funny though is how a lot of those fans will swear Moore came up with the Red Hood aspect of the story, not realizing it’s taken from a 1951 story.
I will definitely be checking out this movie. The trailer blew me away, but it also didn’t ruin the entire plot. Maybe it’ll be good, maybe it won’t be, but as of this moment I am so intrigued that I can’t wait to see it.
