Who's Laughing Now?: Warner Bros. Releases an Extended Joker Synopsis

The internet is already at war with itself over the upcoming release of Joker from Warner Bros.. This latest version of the iconic clown prince of crime is in no way connected to the existing DCEU and will possibly be the first in a long line of one off projects for classic DC characters. While some are super excited to get something fresh and new after a disappointing Justice League and other films, others are not happy that this is not the classic Joker. Honestly, it would be nice if everyone waited to see the movie before passing judgment. Joaquin is an amazing actor that's proven himself time and time again. Today, Warner Bros. released an extended synopsis for the film. Check it out here!

Forever alone in a crowd, Arthur Fleck seeks connection. Yet, as he trods the sooted Gotham City streets and rides the graffitied mass transit rails of a hostile town teeming with division and dissatisfaction, Arthur wears two masks. One, he paints on for his day job as a clown. The other he can never remove; it’s the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel he’s a part of the world around him, and not the misunderstood man whom life is repeatedly beating down. Fatherless, Arthur has a fragile mother, arguably his best friend, who nicknamed him Happy, a moniker that’s fostered in Arthur a smile that hides the heartache beneath. But, when bullied by teens on the streets, taunted by suits on the subway, or simply teased by his fellow clowns at work, this social outlier only becomes even more out of sync with everyone around him.
