    This year we are getting a seemingly brand new take on the classic Batman villain, the Joker. This version stars Joaquin Phoenix as a failed comedian named Arthur Fleck - a new name for the old character. People are saying it's a whole new origin story for the Joker and I think that's true... but maybe not in the way most people are thinking. I think this Joker is not actually REAL! What do I mean? You're about to find out!

    Fun fact, a typical symptom of schizophrenia is often delusions of grandeur. This fits perfectly with what we're seeing!

    Since you pointed out that his mom looks young, I started to wonder..... is his mom a hallucination too? Or a hostage? (Sorry, I know the hostage thing is a stretch 😆)... but when he’s dancing with her in the trailer... it kindaaaa gave me a Norman Bates vibe... dancing with her corpse or something....

    Joker has always been shown to be an unreliable narrator, even to himself about who he is and why he is. So I would actually be pretty happy if they went this direction with this.

    A personal prediction, I have a feeling that Arthur has that disease where he has forced laughter like the videos Phoenix watched to practice his laugh. There's probably going to be some tic that shows that his laughter is involuntary but at the end of the movie, once everything comes crashing down he's going to let out an epic laugh but this time, no tic. Showing that now he "gets the joke" and he's actually laughing himself. A slow zoom in on his manically joyful faces as all hell breaks loose around him then BOOM credits. JOKER. Directed by Todd Phillips.

    The way fantasy and reality mold leaving you confused is the same way schizophrenia actual works you fade in and out of reality confused on not really knowing what’s going on

    Maybe there will be a five year time jump during which he becomes more of the mastermind we know. It's worked before.

    Imagine the vast of Suicide Squat having to stand someone sending them used condoms and death rats just to have him do the worst rendition of the joker.
