  The new Joker movie’s trailer has been released and it looks terrific. It looks nothing like any other DC movie out. So far, emulating concepts of crime films rather than the usual comic book films — which is not necessarily a bad thing.

  It is a new take on the Joker, which I personally like. Jared Leto’s Joker in Suicide Squad totally flopped and was mildly awkward. It did not work at all. The new one is played by Joaquin Phoenix, and in my opinion, he fits the role.

  In the trailer, you see the character’s descent to madness, which is portrayed well by Phoenix. He is convincing in the role. He really does seem insane by the end of the trailer, which is exactly what the role calls for.

  This DC movie does not seem to be connected with the current DCEU movies at all. (So it is not in the same universe as Shazam!, Aquaman, Justice League, and so on). This is a great thing to do, even though they do not have a Joker character in that universe since Suicide Squad is being canonically cut out.

  From the look of this trailer, I think it’ll be a fantastic film. Hopefully, it will be exactly what the Joker character needs.
