I wonder if a superhero will serve as antagonist in this movie? Or if the joker will be more of an anti-hero here as with the venom movie.

Thanks for the thread! I didn't realize the movie would be coming out this year or a teaser trailer being released.

I have no idea. I feel like we know very little about this movie.

I watched the Teaser Trailer and it looks like a movie about a man who lives a torturous life full of dark events that drove him into madness.

It's far too realistic for me..sadly

I like the Jack Napier version far more where he's a gang member and he's dumped into the acid by Batman andthen goes mad.... the old Batman 1989 movie

The trailer freaked me out but I understand if others find it intriguing. I doubt if I see this one lol.

I guess this version is a comedian who dresses up like a clown and has a rough career and goes through some extreme events.

^ very true....

most of Batman versions stories started out dark with his parents being murdered

I didn't see Harleen listed in the credits as a character

Weirdly, I'm going to wait until I see the movie and try not to watch teaser trailers. I want to be surprised with this movie. It's interesting when different actors portray the Joker so differently.

That was from the comics - the Joker being a comedian and things not working out, getting in with a bad group of guys, that sort of thing.
