    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 he has MSP then that would make sense in why he acts so different when hes the joker

                                      Hey could you do some sort of theory on the movie chronicle? Like what the thing that gave them the power is, or why it gave them powers at all, or perhaps why andrew was the strongest and quickest learning characte. It would be absolutely awesome.
                                      Another theory could be why they are connected, or why andrew went insane, maybe it was his father and the bullies.

                                                            I was thinking this could be the jokers father

                                                              I personally think this is showing a guy slowly turning into an alternate personality (The Joker)
