    You beat me to it. I was just coming here to say this. I'm quite excited for it.

    8 minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival too




    Two clips leaked online

    Phoenix absolutely nails the part where he just goes off the rails.

    He savagely beats and murders the guy in front of his dad who is a midget. His dad tries to run away but he can't reach the door lock

    He shoots Deniro's character on live TV.

    Same! Instant regret. :(

    They said that nothing was being taken out of the comics, but...

    the bit about Robert de Niro sounds like it could come from The Dark Knight returns when Joker was on the David Letterman clone show.

    Joker-WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU CROSS A MENTALLY ILL LONER WITH A SOCIETY THAT ABANDONS HIM AND TREATS HIM LIKE TRASH?!

    I’ll tell you what you get! You get what you f’ing deserve!

    *Shoots de niro’s character*


    I can see a lot of backlash in this day and age over that scene

    Exactly. James Bond did well for 50 years and there was little attempts at continuity until Casino Royale. General audiences just want to be entertained for a few hours. They arent microanalyzing these movies like hardcore fans do.
