Phoenix said in an interview with ComicBook.com in 2018, “I wouldn’t quite classify this as like any genre. I would not say it’s a superhero movie, or a studio movie. Underneath the excitement of these films, and the size of them, there are these incredible characters that are dealing with real-life struggles.”

The Joker has been the arch nemesis of Batman for a very long time. The Joker was created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson in 1940 who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940), published by DC Comics. Everyone knows the Joker because of his scars on his face, but do people really know how he got them? Initially the Joker said that his father gave him the cuts on his cheek as a child after his father performed the same act on his mother, which includes the famous line “Why so serious?” Even though he said this, many people are not certain that’s how he got them.

A scene from the new movie “The Joker”

The Joker is about a lonely part-time clown who lives in a crumbling tenement with his sickly mother (Frances Conroy). The story goes through his early stations of the cross: the romantic rejections, the random beatings by teenage street punks, the countless small humiliations that make up his daily life.

The only good thing, maybe, is his blossoming romance with a neighbor, luminous single mother Sophie, according to ew.com. The Joker has already received an 84% on Rotten Tomatoes, even though it hasn’t come out. Now that is a risky opinion about the movie without even seeing it and just going off of the trailer.

Here is a fact that came from imdb.com, “Following the disappointing critical and financial performance of Justice League (2017), in January 2018 Walter Hamada replaced Jon Berg as the head of DC-based film production at Warner Bros. Hamada sorted through the various DC films in development, canceling some while advancing work on others; the Joker film was expected to begin filming in late 2018 with a small budget. By June, Robert De Niro was under consideration for a supporting role in the film. The deal with Phoenix was finalized in July 2018, after four months of persuasion from Phillips. Immediately afterwards, Warner Bros. officially green-lit the film, titled it Joker, and gave it an October 4, 2019, release date. Warner Bros. described the film as “an exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale”.

The Joker is really hyped up but will it really live up to the hype?
