  • Get yourself some NEW Theory Wear!! ►

    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!

    This could parallel with the three Jokers concept. He could be one of the three. It would be interesting if this is the case.

    Schizophrenia cannot be diagnosed by what symptoms you screengrab in the internet. If that is so, then we're ALL jokers.I think this movie will be so good.

    8:45 Did they turn Harley Quinn black now, too? Is there no end to this? Why are they even trying to be subtle about it at this point?

    The joker makes sense because he is the product of society A product that is abused,neglected,humilated, this is what society does to those who are different, those who lost or have an extra limb, mentally, psychologically, the batman lost his parents, the joker lost everythingSpiderman keeps losing things important to him because he keeps getting strongerWith great power comes great responsibility and great costs.

    I always thought he moved like that because he's theatrical. It makes sense: The man's a performer! A failed performer certainly, but still something he wants.

    How can you have a spoiler free version for a movie that hasn't come out yet? Wouldn't you also need a spoiler version?

    ​ all, how you all doing?I am working on a short film that I am developing and I thought it would be great to leave it here and hope that someone sees and and possibly makes a tiny donation. Every little thing helps, even the 1$ ones as it helps us get traction with Indiegogo and then more people see it. The story is about three people who are being forced into a life of forensic cleaning. Have a look at the page and see if there's anything you like! Thank you everyone!

    Fun fact, a typical symptom of schizophrenia is often delusions of grandeur. This fits perfectly with what we're seeing!

    Since you pointed out that his mom looks young, I started to wonder..... is his mom a hallucination too? Or a hostage? (Sorry, I know the hostage thing is a stretch 😆)... but when he’s dancing with her in the trailer... it kindaaaa gave me a Norman Bates vibe... dancing with her corpse or something....

    Joker has always been shown to be an unreliable narrator, even to himself about who he is and why he is. So I would actually be pretty happy if they went this direction with this.A personal prediction, I have a feeling that Arthur has that disease where he has forced laughter like the videos Phoenix watched to practice his laugh. There's probably going to be some tic that shows that his laughter is involuntary but at the end of the movie, once everything comes crashing down he's going to let out an epic laugh but this time, no tic. Showing that now he "gets the joke" and he's actually laughing himself. A slow zoom in on his manically joyful faces as all hell breaks loose around him then BOOM credits. JOKER. Directed by Todd Phillips.

    His feet are moving in strange patterns? So dancing is strange ? Moves his feet into a dance position or some sort. How is this strange ? Idk it just seem strange to put this as a reason

    The way fantasy and reality mold leaving you confused is the same way schizophrenia actual works you fade in and out of reality confused on not really knowing what’s going on

    Maybe there will be a five year time jump during which he becomes more of the mastermind we know. It's worked before.
