The new Joker movie looks amazing

The first trailer for the new Joker movie, starring Joaquin Phoenix, looks amazing.

Amazing, terrifying, creepy and horrifying.

Considering what Phoenix did to get into his role for I'm Still Here (i.e., people thought he was maybe seriously losing his shite), this trailer makes me very worried for what he did to himself for this role.


Joker will be the first of many D.C.-based movies, that while not technically stand alones, are separate from the expanded D.C. universe.

Yeah, hopefully Disney sorts all that out, but in the meantime this looks very UN-Disney, in a very good way. It appears we'll relearn the origins of the infamous villain, beyond a chemical accident that put a permanent smile on his face.

I'm ready to hand the Oscar to Joaquin right now.
