    Slightly conflicted. I am not a fan of using a brand name to sell something that has little to do with the source. But it LOOKS fantastic! Hopefully whatever story it’s telling lives up to that.

    Since nobody knows for sure what Joker's real origin story is (including him), maybe this is it.

    Or, maybe not. Who's to say? :techman:

    Isn't it the official story now that there are actually multiple Jokers now anyway? What's another origin story between friends?

    I dunno, he looks and sounds like the Joker to me.

    In this thread: The trailer looks great but I still need to find a reason to hate it because it isnt derived from a particular comic. JINO

    This movie looks like it is going to be great and if you combine this with a Tarantino Trek we might see a new trend of adult oriented one off takes of family friendly fare. I think they are also doing a realistic version, Fresh Prince with Will Smiths blessing. Jason

    Wow. Every single review I've read of this gives it top marks. I'm interested now.

    Saw the final trailer yesterday and it looked insanely good. Based on that and the reviews, I'm starting to get a little excited.

    The only "message" it needs to have is the one I'm seeing in the trailer: guy goes nuts and becomes the Joker. What were they expecting?
