Often times rewrites to a script can potentially kill an entire move, especially when the movie is in the midst of filming. Although, the “Joker” film seems to be a whole new beast. Getting praise from critics already, this film is credited with being an original take on superhero films and comic book movies at a time when all of them are starting to feel the same.
A standalone story, this film is said to be controversial and pave a new road for comic book movies similar to that of what “Logan” did in 2017. A man broken down and beaten by a society designed only to hurt, Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Pheonix) is a representation of what happens when you push someone too far. The film also supports an amazing cast of fantastic actors including Zazie Beetz, Bryan Callen, Marc Matton, Frances Conroy, and Robert De Niro.
This film is said to make major changes to the Batman mythos, which may upset some die hard Batman fans, yet what character is better to change things up with than the clown prince of crime himself… The Joker.
