    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!

        This joker is probably the father who gave the joker his smile.

              I think he real but not the iconic joker, it lines up with the 3 joker plot. It could even be an origin story where at the end you see a young boy who sees the joker and becomes the real joker. Him and Batman are roughly the same age so the idea doesn't seem to far off, kind of a yin and yang created from the same time to balance each other. That just happens to be the motivation for the real bronze age/ modern age joker. He doesn't want to kill Batman because he would have no reason to exist as it's his only true purpose.

                    I mean the movie was originally supposed to cast Leonardo DiCaprio as joker , so you’re probably spot on with this theory.

                      The Joker is a franchise in the batman universe. When I said franchise it means the person behind this character was, is and will be different. This particular Joker is an influencer Joker.

                          Joker actually knows he doesn't exist. He also states numerous times in the comics that Gotham doesn't exist that everyone are characters in a story. He is the Deadpool in the DC world except he's a villain.

                                    Wow I liked you a long time ago
                                    Sadly , you dig very deeply into misdirected trailers
                                    Now joker is interesting
                                    It’s not really the title of the character otherwise the title would be the joker.
                                    With such a high leniency to the king of comedy and taxi.
                                    Authur May be the influence to the teenager or young man who is to be the joker.
                                    As knowing that Jared Leto joker is akin to being the lost Jason Todd. This one might show the only reasonable to live in this world is without reason. Is author the inspiration for this young man who has seen the Wayne’s take from the poor through their mob ties

                                        This probably won't get read but, I've recently stumbled upon this odd little chanle which appears to have been receiving some attention lately due to the odd nature of its videos. They are all a bit unsettling and seem to have some kind of secret message woven in. I think it might be worth a look if anyone is interested.

                                                          The Mobius Chair in Justice League #42: Three Jokers; Three stories; Three artists, and we don't know which story is for which joker. These three Jokers deals with the three heroes that the Joker has hurt: Batman, Batgirl, and Jason Todd; first appearance (1940), Silver Age "Clown Prince of Crime" Joker, and Killing Joke, Joker. A clue that's interest is the trophy, Giant Playing (Joker) Card in the Batcave, which connects all three Jokers. I think there's actually four but one of them is dead; it might have a connection with the multiverse and the Watchmen and Dr. Manhattan. I would recommend people start looking into that series and the one about the three Jokers.

The reason for joker being on tv is because from what ive hurd he shoots the tv host and the city is rioting over poverty and the step decline of gotham city. Also jokers mom as what is being said was a maid at the wayne estate and suposidly tells Auther that he is in fact Thomis Waynes illegitimate son. Witch would make him batmans half brother but another roomer also says he lerns thats false and that his mom never was intament with mr wayne but all is her say and its the orgin to the upcoming film The BatMan staring the guy from Twilight as bat man the guy who played Edward
