Every hero needs a villain and so does the Batman. The ‘silent guardian’ of Gotham city, ‘a watchful protector’, ‘the Hero we need but not deserve’ would have been nothing if the iconic archenemy Joker would not have been there. The most appreciated lawbreaker of all time, the Joker is the only villain famous and more loved than the hero in the history of superheroes. But no one knows the exact story behind that smiling “why so serious?” face, which has given nightmares to Batman making a special place in the hearts of the audience.
To meet your curiosity, Todd Phillips has brought to you a film that shows the struggle of Arthur Fleck aka Joker, a fictional character of DC, portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix in the Gotham society. The two minute twenty four second long trailer shows the transformation of a failed depressed clown to a deadly criminal. The clip opens with Joker, trying to make a kid laugh only to be stopped by his mother. A common man who aspires to become a stand up comedian, suffering an existential crisis, expresses his thought by saying, “All I have are negative thoughts”.
Movie also shows Robert De Niro playing the character of Murray Franklin, a talk show host, who plays a crucial role in the downfall of Arthur Fleck, who later on emerges as the Joker.
