If you haven’t noticed I haven’t been posting that much on here lately. Writing has kind of taken a back seat for me. However, I still love talking about comic books/comic book movies. So I decided to start my own YouTube channel and talk about what I love over there. I started with my review of Joker! It took a lot of personal courage to upload this (I hate the sound of my own voice lol) But I had to give it a try. If I make a fool of myself then so what? At least I tried. So please feel free to check out my first review down below. If you do ending up checking it out please feel free to give me any feedback wether it be positive or negative. I would love to hear your thoughts on it and the movie in general.
What a day it has been for comic book fans like myself. Just as I finally got through and brought my tickets for Avengers: Endgame I get a notification on my phone saying director Todd Phillips has made a new post on his Instagram. Without hesitation I went to his page because I knew it would be something Joker related. Well, to my surprise it was more than that. Not only did Todd Phillips give us our first look at the poster for the movie, he also announced we’re getting a teaser trailer tomorrow!
Warner Bros. also created a Twitter account for the movie and provided us a promotional banner.
Shortly after I received a press release from Warner Bros. detailing the movie.
Check out the official synopsis for The Joker:
“Joker centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
One detail I found really interesting in the press release is how it states Robert De Niro is starring in the movie alongside Joaquin Phoenix. It looks like he’s going to have a major role in the movie. I honestly can’t wait for the trailer tomorrow.
Check back here tomorrow for my breakdown/reaction to the trailer.
