Not sure what to think. Seems like this can be a straight up drama (horror?), not a DC Comics flick. Not really much to take from the teaser other than Joaquin being Joaquin (that's to say, cra-cra).

I'm fascinated by this project. I can't tell if it's a bold creative risk or a misguided trainwreck, but I'm fascinated, nonetheless.

I have no idea what they're doing over at Warner/DC, but I'm all in on this. They need to stop chasing Marvel and just do something nuts.

Honestly, this LOOKS really good.

i can't decide if this is a reboot of The King of Comedy, or a reboot of The Day the Clown Cried.

either way, Jerry Lewis would be proud.

it also looks more like a Paul Thomas Anderson film than something made by the guy who directed Old School and the Hangover series.

Yeah, it's clearly imitating the look of Scorsese's New York period. I'm kind of okay with it being somewhat unoriginal as long as it pushes the genre in new directions.

All but sure how this will turn out but it sure looks interesting.

they really missed an opportunity by not posting that trailer on April 1.

"from the director of Road Trip and Starsky & Hutch... and the star of I'm Still Here... comes a new era in superhero cinema.... THE JOKER"

people would be debating whether this trailer/film was just one big elaborate practical joke for HOURS...
