  • 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!

    Something that many do not understand is that we talk about gotham a city in decline where people will end badly and things will get worse.

    They should be like that since the end of the history of the gothic city is to end under siege and within a wall that will not allow either exit or entrance of the place.

    What is shown is joker the movie is just a beginning of the struggles that occur everywhere and should be not questioned but maximized to its maximum expression due to that type of city that we are describing or feeding with our thoughts and like the movie V Vendetta will see clown masks in the revolts worldwide because the human being seeks to rely on it.

    This joker for me is real and what happens in gotham must also be real.

    Remember how the girl says 'your name is arthur right.. you live couple rooms away' even though they had kissed each other and had gone on a date, thats what made me think that it was just joker fantasizing those events..

    This was a great theory.
    I'm happy it was mostly inaccurate

    • Sollus Markis
      Sollus Markis Day ago

      @enip284 I'd agree. Though I personally think that a Joker origin movie where the Joker is only the Joker in his imagination is a terrible movie so I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the theory that he's completely made up is not accurate

    • enip284
      enip284 Day ago +1

      it's pretty surprising how accurate it was though. I mean the last scene throws a lot of what we saw into question, on top of the fact that the relationship being imaginary being 100% accurate.

    My favorite interpretation of the joker’s backstory used to be the telltale Batman games but now I think this may be my favorite

    Did Matt even see the film? His theory is rings true for bits and pieces but the film does a solid job show what was real and fantasy.

    I think The Boys is more of a parody, similar to Epic Movie, than a deconstruction.

    People wearing masks while “protesting” or organized rioting is a completely normal thing that happens all the time the people doing it are just as and sometimes more violent and unhinged than the people rioting in the movie.

    So from watching t movie you can automatically tell that the riot and the high tensions in the city are because of the social atmosphere and people took the clown thing as a sort o fm statement because some rich dudes got lit up also they show that when he was with his little honey he was actually alone like in the hospital scene and the comedy club 🤷‍♀️ seemed to me like someone who helped write this didn’t watch the movie
