This video contains spoilers! I've seen the new Joker movie a few times now and, oh boy, does it make my Theorist brain go! There is SO MUCH to this movie and because of that I want to break down the full movie - especially that ending! If you were confused about what was real and what was only in the mind of our titular character, I've got you covered!

I don’t agree that him watching someone else’s open mic routine was a delusion. Why would he fantasize about someone telling a joke he doesn’t understand and fantasize the entire audience laughing at punchlines he doesn’t find funny? Thought it was a great scene showing how tragically alienated he was from society, but certainly not one of his idealized illusions. Also dude was trash stomping.

If you're gonna make a movie about jokers beginning, it has to be as complicated, manipulative, and crazy as the joker is. And I'm 90% sure its is being told by the clown prince of crime himself

I truly wish WB would use the author fleck joker as the symbol that a later Jack Napier Joker revives sparking an inner flame within Bruce Wayne this would also remedy the hate towards the suicide squad joker
I must say arthur is the innocent one.

Watched this Movie in an old cinema from the 1920s, which seats 1300 people. I had a premium seat up high in a booth, like in a theatre. The Movie was shown on 70mm. That feeling was awesome, this fitted this movie just perfect and made the movie so much better.

Is it just me or was the movie suprisingly violent when it comes to violence because it's dc but at the same time not because of the same reason

Now I've not seen this movie. I'm more motivated now because of this video because it goes opposite of the comics. In the comics Batman created Joker. In the movie Joker indirectly creates Batman. I love it.

tl;dr: The movie is Arthur's fan fiction of the Joker's origin writing himself into the role and decides to become the Joker in the end. Again I think that Fleck is in the future post-batman\Joker. Notice that we stopped calling it Arkham Asylum and in the ending we see Arkham State Hospital (We phased out the term Asylums ). I think Fleck in in the State Hospital in the future. Being in the hospital he likely, growing up in Gotham, knew of the Batman and the Joker. In his mental state he is retconning himself into being the Joker. We can see the 80s Arkham as old and dingy but the last scene the State Hospital is clean and new. Gotham had long since been saved. In Flecks broken mind he is writing himself into being the Joker, backwards in time. It is all fantasy that he is thinking, in the real meeting with his doctor (the ending) and like the Wizard of Oz is writing out his fantasy using bits and pieces of information he knows. In the end he "Becomes the New Joker" and embraces the identity and kills the therapist. The "A Joke between me and him" line isn't about Wayne, it's between the real, and likely long dead Joker and him because he thinks, rightly so more than likely, that the original Joker would get the joke. This is why Arthur knew about the Waynes deaths, and Batman's origins.

If the Joker caused the deaths of Bruce's parents, how old is he by the time Bruce becomes Batman?
OniFeez Il y a 8 jours
Between Me and Him I thought was more to do with dissociative identity disorder or something. Joker knows he's messed up imo, just doesn't care now. Consequence free revenge: Well; it is the Joker - it is set in Gotham and it is the rot that saw the the development of the Batman in the first place. Normal society rules don't apply to comics anyway.

Well since in his dream he’s more confident and he doesn’t know that it’s different so it could be a plasibo effect and then that could make it so he’s stronger and that there are small fractions like the kiss that didn’t happen but there are some that did
