Get a load of the Clown Prince of Crime in this Joker trailer

If you ever wanted to see a comic book film that looks like it desperately wants to be taken seriously get a load of this Joker trailer.


My first thought was this was a comic book movie with award aspirations in mind. Was this the first Oscar bait comic book movie trailer we’ve ever seen?

Joaquin Phoenix is a heck of an actor and I’m intrigued to see his full-on Joker. But the one thing that has me a little worried here is how Arthur looks to be a little too sympathetic. And there’s that nagging question of will Warner Bros. really do a Joker movie set in Gotham without Batman showing up at all?


I’ve gotta say the most intriguing aspect of the film is that Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) and Brian Tyree Henry (If Beale Street Could Talk) will be in it.

We’ll see what happens. I’m not sure if I’m optimistic or cautious on this one. What do you all think? Excited about Joker after seeing the trailer?
