Film Theory: The Joker Is Not Real (Joker 2019 Spoiler Free)

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!

    The killing joke: a semi telling of the Jokers .origin where he is a Comedian named ARTHUR! Don’t say this is the first time this has been his name when that graphic novel came out 30 years ago. Just saying.

    I have a bad feeling that this is more progressive Hollywood social commentary with a focus on the ‘mental health community’. I just don’t see how they can spin a violent psychotic murderer as positive.

    Thing is this is probably true but that wouldn’t be his name because even the joker doesn’t know his own name

    @The Film Theorists hey buddy I can see ur point but if he isn't real (as a joker) then what is "Batman Dark Knight" about? the joker in there seems to be really similar, and we do know that the dark knight joker was real and this joker movie is basically him(joker) in the beginning of his infamous crime life. So if the joker from DK is real and this joker movie is the joker from DK but In the beginning then how is he not real?? anyways im kinda mad b/c u ruined my hype for the movie

    What if Arthur Fleck is actually the father of the future Joker. He tells his son stories of who he used to be and his son takes up the mantle. The Joker would be a lot younger than batman, which isn't the usual, but it would kind of be an interesting take. Arthur never actually became the joker, but passes his delusions to his son, who inevitably becomes the real joker.
