Upon reflection, I've decided that Phoenix and Ledger's performances are equal in terms of what I prefer. I can't pick one over the other, especially when they're both extremely unique, different versions of the character. I just hope that Phoenix isn't fucked up from the method acting and doesn't meet a sudden and untimely end the way Ledger did.

Best regards to his health, for sure.

I think the origin story situated here with Joaquin Phoenix is still perfect, so much so that it could in theory be applied to Heath Ledgers Joker in many ways. Not that it's needed, but it isn't exactly untrue.

I sincerely hope that Warner Brothers decides to change course from here upon seeing how much money this film is making. I would absolutely love a series of standalone films about the Batman Rogues, but only if they're R-rated and have the same style, atmosphere, and quality cinematography this movie had.
A Two-Face movie would be so fucking good if they had the right actor and directing. A Killer Croc film screams Del Toro. Poison Ivy can be a lulzy middle finger to SJWs since the character acts like one and gets btfo for it. The list could go on and on.

I would want to have a Scarecrow movie done in a similar vein to this Joker movie.

Just thinking about the kind of story they could tell and things they could do make me very excited for something like that.

While I agree with your sentiment especially for a Dr. Freeze movie, I can't for the life of me imagine a Penguin movie.

Agreed! Where Joker makes him sympathetic, I would like a Poison Ivy film where she's just as awful as possible, base her on the mongs at Extinction Rebellion, but replace the red food colouring with plant enzymes or something.

Media Horrified By Lack Of Violence At Joker Screenings

U.S.—Our nation’s intrepid journalists had been warning the country about the threat of the Joker movie and how it could encourage violence among disaffected white people and incels -- the new greatest threat to mankind. And as reporters prepared for an onslaught of violence as Joker premiered over the weekend, they were horrified by what happened: absolutely no violence or anything worth reporting on whatsoever.

“We found one incident of a guy cheering too loudly at the fictional violence,” said CNN reporter Terrance Shelton, “but that was it. There was nothing. Absolutely nothing we can glom onto and spin into a hot take that reinforces The Narrative. I’m shaken to my core.”

Journalists have already been shaken by many attacks on the press. Much of this has come from President Trump, but a lot also from reality, which has specifically gone after many of their hyped predictions and disasters. “We had expert opinions saying that the Joker movie was just adding fuel to the fire with all that’s going on,” said New York Times writer Glenn Peterson. “And once again, reality has defied experts. That’s not right.”

Now that opinion writers' fears have been disproven, the pundits whose predictions were completely wrong and who have demonstrated they have no grasp of how reality actually works are expecting the harshest punishment for such a journalistic failure: absolutely nothing.

i don't know what to say that hasn't already been said, but yes the movie is really good. It made me uncomfortable, in a good way?, and none of that had to do with the 'violence'.
I admit it took some time for me to get into the movie, I wasn't feeling the beginning. But once he met bruce was when the movie really kicked off for me. I was tense and at the edge of my seat throughout. And though I could see some of the plot points coming from a mile away, it was still done in a way that surprised me.

Personally? I don't think it needs a sequel or a continuation or a franchise or anything. Why can't we just keep getting one off pieces like this? That way writers and directors can spend more time on the quality? I mean I know it was pretty much confirmed sticking the Joker name on it was to get butts in seats. But still.
