Film Theory: The Joker Is Not Real (Joker 2019 Spoiler Free)

Get yourself some NEW Theory Wear!! ►
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!

  • If anything could be an illusion in this movie, could the Joker be imagining himself as Arthur Fleck? Like, "hey, it's not my fault I'm like this?" Maybe a way to get rid of blame or guilt (not that he'd have much guilt). Just an interesting concept :)

  • I do believe that Joker(might not have been the base of the riots) He was the straw that broke the Camel's back. With in his delusion of being with the girl. He did see the clown on the newspaper in the realization.

  • This joker isn’t as smart as in comics, but it’s like the moment when he dodged questions from detectives, or when before going to the show, he talked with Murray and said that he really didn’t know what kind of clown riot it was. on the show, when he confessed to the murder, he began to openly manipulate the crowd, specifically speaking such a speech, to pour even more malice into them.

  • Before people saying that the Joker ripped off the movie the king of comedy from an artistic point of view is it possible that the character Arthur Fleck was a fan of the movie the king of comedy and work this movie into his own schizophrenia?

  • If a person has mental issues and puts on clown makeup doesn't make him the joker.Joker movie failed in that aspect.Joker is a character who can go toe to toe with Batman without any super strength and that's what makes him the best villan ever.If you put joker 2019 in a battle with any iteration of previous Batman he will fail miserably in a minute and that's not acceptable for a joker fan like me
