Looks good but is Batman fighting a senior in the future? Joker will be at least 60 when the Dark knight rises.

Hopefully Phoenix can make the character his own rather than ape Ledger's performance.

To be honest, it already feels like a different vibe. Impressed by the trailer so far.

Same here. I am getting a Taxi Driver feeling here. Shame I haven't watched the King of Comedy since I have heard from other that it feels inspired by that as well.

There will always be comparisons to Heath Ledger's Joker, but Joaquin Phoenix was already an exceptional actor way before H.L. passed away.

Sidenote, in celebration of Batman's 80th anniversary the Dark Knight trilogy will be showing in 70mm IMAX for one day only on April 20 at the Cinesphere. Only a few seats left.

Looks cool. But I just hope they make him a true villain and not just an antihero (like Suicide Squads). Understanding why and how he became who he is is fine, but by the end of the film, he needs to be straight up evil.

This looks like it is going to be amazing.

This could be a great movie.

Who would've known DC would completely drop the ball on Batman, Superman, and Justice League, but emerge with a winner in a Joker movie that's not based on any comics origin.
Baaaaaaaaa!

I see 3 different screenings at TIFF for this movie. Other than doing the rush line, do you guys have any tips or secrets to guarantee scoring tickets for one of these screenings?
