    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!

    I think that the joker is mad. He is crazy but he laughs and smiles to hide the sadness and craziness behind his smile and switching between happy and crazy faxes makes him go mad. That’s why he jerks around and switches personalities so much and because of all of his insecurities he turned to the joker. He makes super unnerving movements and he is unpredictable which makes him so terrifying it shows what society can do to an outsider. It puts chills down my spine. I love it. The switch from imagination to reality is amazing. you don’t know if he is good or bad

    It could be that as it takes things from the king of comedy and the killing in which after describing the whole joker origin he just says
    " Sometimes I remember it one way and sometimes I remember it another . If I am gonna have a past I prefer it to be multiple choice."

    I know why Batman never kills joker. If this is the backstory he knows that he is just affected by society and he is just mentally ill....depressing
