I' m really really hoping this film delivers the goods and after seeing the trailer a number of more times , I honestly think it will. For one, Joaquim Phoenix is VERY selective with the projects he chooses (esp at this stage of his career). Really hyped for this film!
Iím guessing it wonít make Wonder Woman money. Especially not being connected to the rest of the universe (from my admittedly limited understanding).

I think the tone and subject matter might drive some popcorn-type money away. It might also catch heat because mental illness is a pretty hot button issue at the moment.

But it looks like it does it right. Shit looks heavy as hell.

Yep. This one appears to have a limited audience available. The kids that go see the comic book movies won't have any interest in this one.
Not because it isn't a well made, deep-dive character study that aptly probes the darkness but because of it.

I'm not sure where all the praise is being generated from that trailer. It gave no insight into the story line what so ever.

This honestly doesn't really look very good to me, but I've never liked the joker as much as the masses.

I liked Bane better than the Joker.

I think it signals a current appetite for more human-level comic narratives.

Kind of like, even when Guns and Roses was putting out the pinnacle of Sunset Strip Hair Band Metal, there was a huge lurking appetite for muted gritty garage band Nirvana.

Today's superhero movies are about the best they've ever been, but there's a burnout eventually on even the sheer perfection and strenuously curated awesomeness. And an appetite for grit and grime and pathos creeps in.

Canít embed from my phone but this guy does a good job breaking it down. There is a lot to chew on here.

Teaser trailers rarely do. Itís all about generating tone and general vibe. A longer more story detailed trailer will appear a few months down the line.

The best antagonists have an incentive that stimulates audience empathy. Except for, perhaps, that Mr. Black Bob guy ...

I generally agree, but I think the Joker is a rare exception. His entire persona relies on being a total mystery. He's pure id, chaotic and unreasonable. His motives always shift and his behavior is erratic enough to stymie the world's greatest detective. Explaining how he got there kind of ruins the fun in some ways.

That said, The Killing Joke gave him a backstory and it managed to be one of the best Batman stories ever written so... :-)

I think a whole movie of him becoming the Joker is pretty unnecessary, but I love Joaquin Phoenix and the trailer looks good so I'm in. Of course I'm the kind of fan that likes when movies do crazy stuff with established characters. All that matters to me is if it's a good movie or not.

This is definitely ripping off Scorceses ‘The King of Comedy ‘

Except DeNiro is playing the Jerry Lewis role now.

This feels strangely disconnected from the DC universe...

This is supposed to be an else world's/DC Black type of movie. Phoenix I believe said this will be the only movie he will do for Joker.

Good final trailer. Warner Bros seems VERY confident in this one (premiering it at the Venice Film Festival). Here's hoping it delivers!

Perhaps Im confused by the "DC" label, but is this Batman's Joker? This seems unrelated, and I was sort of under the impression Joker's origin story was intentionally never determined.
