The Joker is based on the DC Comics character and stars Joaquin Phoenix. It’s a masterfully produced origin story set in 1981. It follows Arthur Fleck an aspiring stand-up comedian in Gotham City who becomes the Joker after a series of debilitating and dastardly events.
I think this is going to be the best comic book movie for years. It won’t outgross ‘Endgame’ by any means, but it will give some of us jaded ‘sick-o-the-same-ol’-comic-book-crap’ fans something to keep us interested and stop Marvel from feeling that they can just ‘dial-it-in’.
