Re: The Reboot Joker
Yeah. But Joker is ultimately a tragic character, who see's what happened to him as the awakening truth that life is a joke and that we're all jokes. It was born out of tragedy...and the pain affects him so bad that he runs from it.
I loved how TKJ showed us that was a good man fighting for a future, roped into something bad...which ended up horribly for him. He see's how evil and unfair life can be, and thinks it plays jokes on people...and the only way we can live is by releasing ourselves of the shackles of sanity...because once you're insane, you no longer care. Life is evil, so we should be too, then the jokes will no longer be on us.
Bringing something like that to the film audience would be pretty neat.
