  • 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!

                                              What if Arthur had a child and that child became the joker that fights batman. because I mean the joker always said want to know how I got these scars and his father yada yada and because sometimes depression and mental illnesses are genetic.

                                                  I thinks Phoenix joker is just a younger heats joker....

                                                  That's why the dark Knight joker sounds like a smoker

                                                      This all becomes irrelevant after u see the dreaming in the actual film, (SPOILERS)when he’s at the talk show in the audience

                                                        Just think about it. Arthur fleck is around his 40s. Bruce is around 10. It will be another two decades till Bruce becomes Batman. Does it make sense for the Joker to be 60 years old or older and fighting BATMAN?! I think not...

                                                          But joker claims in the movie that he didn't have any intentions of being the figurehead of the rebellion, he only did what he did because people were just being jerks. So with that, I don't think the uprisings are his fantasies because he says he didn't want/intend for this to happen. He wouldn't fantasize about something he didn't want.

                                                          (but still a great theory because you only used the trailer)
