While Nicholson was a fine Joker, it was still Jack Nicholson and the weakest for it.

Romero was my go-to because he exemplified the Silver Age Joker.

Ledger was a good interpretation of modern stories. It's too bad we never got to see the rest of his Joker's story.

I think Phoenix will knock this movie out of the park. He absolutely had the presence and ability to own the hell out of this character.

It could also be the movie "Her" but a little more wacky.

From what I understand there is no definitive or agreed upon origin story..at least not as far back as his childhood

I always like to imagine Joker as somewhat the perfect foil to batman, not just in how they behave but actual upbringing

Maybe parallel childhoods with a traumatic experience, like parents being killed, becoming an orphan. One genius took the path of order, justice, and logic. The other genius went with chaos, anarchy, and madness

Basically showing how the same upbringing can lead to opposite outcomes. Love that concept

or the opposite. Perfect upbringing that supressed is psychotic thoughts, similar to Bundy.

I like to picture Joker in a Tuxedo T-shirt, ’cause it says, like, ‘I wanna be formal, but I’m here to party, too.

I think Mark Hamill got the character better then anyone. I don't think he could have played him as well on the big screen though.

There have been some great Jokers because its a character that an actor can really set their teeth into.

I believe that Leto got a little bit too far into the trappings of the role and not enough into being the Joker.

The exact same thing was said 10+ years ago.

Luckily, the TD archives don't go back to 2006, or we'd be outting some folks who were down on the Ledger casting.

well he didnt have much of a script to go with. I think his failing should be blamed on the writers.

This. Mark Hamill is the Joker.

Also, Cameron Monaghan does a pretty damned good job.

I can not argue with this. Some actors, even main stream actors, just suck. But quite a few times talented actors are stuck trying to polish a turd.

I have no doubt JP’s joker will be excellent, I just hope the story and direction match his talent.

They showed the trailer at Cinemacon

@TheInSneider

JOKER looks fricking incredible.

“I used to think my life was a tragedy, but now I realize... it’s a comedy.”

“Gotham has lost its way.”

“What kind of coward would do something that cold-blooded? Someone who hides behind a mask.”

@TheInSneider

Phillips describes JOKER as a tragedy and says Joaquin would agree. Confirms trailer coming tmrw


quote:

Erik Davis
@ErikDavis

“I used to think my life was a tragedy, but now I realize it’s a comedy.” Wow, first teaser for #Joker is super dark and disturbing - the downfall of a man, dragged and beaten down until he turns and beats up on a world turned against him.
#CinemaCon

First look at the Joker movie draws a holy shite. Disturbing as hell
