A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.

Arthur, who devotes himself to caring for his fragile mother, seeks out every father figure he’s never had, from wealthy businessman Thomas Wayne to TV host Murray Franklin. Caught in a cyclical existence teetering on the precipice of reality and madness, one bad decision brings about a chain reaction of escalating, ultimately deadly, events.

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

No Leto seems a positive, but selling a Joker movie to the masses might be a problem. Hard to find redeeming qualities in a homicidal mass murderer.

Re: The Joker getting solo movie



Everything about this idea is just totally What the fuck are they thinking? And of all the directors out there they go with Todd Phillips.

I am beginning to understand perhaps why Ben Affleck might want out.

Heath Ledger.



I can't see a world in which this ends up being a good idea. But I've been proved wrong before

Sunrise, wrong side of another day,
Sky high and six thousand miles away,
Don't know how long I've been awake,
Wound up in an amazing state,
Can't get enough,
And you know it's righteous stuff,
Goes up like prices at Christmas,
Motorhead, remember me now Motorhead!

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

I am definitely interested. Love to see a movie based off this guy, hope it wont suck......



"Meaningless, huh?! What do you know of meaningless?!

Spend most of your life ruled by another...watch your race dwindle to a handful...and then, tell me what has more meaning than your own strength.

I have in me the blood of a Saiyan Prince, he is nothing but a joke. Yet I've had to watch him surpass me in strength, my destiny, thrown to the wayside!

He's...he's even saved my life as if I were a helpless child. He has stolen my honor...and his debts...must be paid!"

-The Prince of all Saiyans

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

The beauty of Joker in the comics is he doesn't really have an origin.

They gave him one in Batman '89, which worked ok....

But The Dark Knight Joker's origin was ambiguous on purpose.

Another needless movie that has the risk of further damaging the character.

I always thought Joker was more of a terrorist.
