references. There were 10 Easter
eggsfrom the Batman comic. The previous Batman movies reference previous versions of the Joker and other non-comic book movies we're doing a giveaway for. Movie tickets, all you have to do to enter is subscribe and leave your favorite Joker moment. Use spoiler tags for at least the next week because there are a lot of people who haven't seen the movie yet and obviously spoiler warning for everything. that happens in the movie because we'll be talking about very specific plot points.
The first big Easter egg starts with the Warner Brothers logo at the beginning of the movie is the same Superman logo with Christopher Reeve, that's because that was the standard Warner Brothers logo. The logo for all the Warner Brothers films between 1972 and 1984 is the first indicator of when the film is supposed to take place, although they never actually tell you what the exact year is during the film, but what they do have is a couple of movie premieres at Easter. eggs at the end of the movie like Zorro the blade wolfin Excalibur the Arthur movie those were all 1981 movie releases so we can say it probably took place during 1981.
The sanitation strike that is happening in Gotham is a reference to the sanitation strikes in real life. The history of New York City during the 1970s and 1980s and the New York City fiscal crisis of the 1970s The Joker's real name, Arthur Fleck, is not a comic book reference. Todd Phillips said that he chose it because it sounded like a speck or a scale that made the Joker a more insignificant character. The social worker he speaks to during the film is named Deborah Kane after Batman co-creator Bob Kane. The bank where Sophie, his imaginary girlfriend, works is on William Street, which is a reference to Bill Finger, another of Batman's sidekicks. -creator later we see a subway stop in Robinson Park another reference to former Batman artist Jerry Robinson Joker lives in apartment 8 jj4 Joker in 8 because it is the eighth major film version of the Joker The iconic return of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker is in reality an affliction he develops as a result of childhood abuse and head trauma, the comic book Joker gets his iconic laugh after falling into the vat of chemicals and Batman The Joke undergoes his physical and psychological transformation, there's one more joke Easter egg literal when it goes to modern times Charlie Chaplin.
The camera lingers on the protesters holding signs, one of the signs says Joke and talking about that Batman story, Arthur in the movie is also an aspiring comedian, just like Joker was during Joke, there are also two other stories of Joker that refer to his first comic ambitions. Before he became the Joker, there was a tie-in comic they did for the 1989 Batman movie with Michael Keaton in Jack Nicholson called The New Adventures of the Joker Anthology published in 1990 that features Jack Nicholson's character Jack Napier sp
endinghis early years. of life scribbling jokes. In the notebooks, just as Arthur does during the movie, there was also an episode of Batman, the animated series called The Laughter, where they did a version of Joke's origin story that shows the Joker trying and failing to become a comedian before becoming the Joker.
It'll ruin you I think I understand what you mean Alfred without the hat different hair the Joker the arena of the comedy club he goes to practice at is called pogos named after Pogo the clown the alias used by John Wayne Gacy Arthur's relationship with his The Deranged Mother is a reference to Norman Bates' relationship with his mother in the movie Psycho and, although I don't fully believe that she was telling the truth about Arthur being Thomas Wayne's son, in the back of her photo Thomas Wayne's message to her says love. your smile TW is a reference to the Joker's smile and then a big Heath Ledger Batman Dark Knight Joker reference at the end of the movie when he paints the smile on his face with blood.
You want to know how I got these scars in which actor Bret Cohen Real life, who plays Thomas Wayne, says that it is his opinion that Thomas Wayne drove Penny crazy 30 years ago and is responsible for her being committed to Arkham Asylum, but That's not the opinion of Todd Phillips, the film's writer and director, on whether or not to do so. Joker is actually Thomas Wayne's son in the film. Todd Phillips only said that he wrote it that way to make the Joker believe that he was Thomas Wayne's son as a way to give him a compelling reason to hate Batman much later, when Batman would eventually become Batman. he didn't say that Penny was telling the truth.
Phillips just said that he wanted Joker to believe it was the truth, not that it was the real truth, but there is an actual canonical comic book version of the Joker who is Thomas Wayne's son and who is the Batman Who Laughs because the Batman Who Laughs is a version of Bruce Wayne from the dark multiverse who became a version of the Joker Joker has a date with the fake version of Sophie with whom he hallucinates but the date takes place on Jerome Avenue the character Jerome Valeska in the television show Gotham sees became the Joker the crazy dance that the Joker does inside the bathroom is a reference to a story by Grant Morrison Batman Batman number 663 the clown @midnight in him the dance is intended to be a metaphor for him undergoing a transformation that emerges from a cocoon like a chrysalis as its arms unfold as if it were evolving from a caterpillar to a butterfly Jo Joker confessing his crimes on Murray Franklin's TV show, only the bear is a reference to the movie Zodiac with the live Zodiac call to confess and then Joker Murray on live TV is a reference to Batman The Dark Knight Returns part 2 where the Joker, an entire studio audience live on TV Joker, you've asked for the opportunity to share your side of things, I'm told. you have around 600 people, how exactly is your side doing?
That's why I'm going to make everyone in this room have more fun with Easter eggs from Batman, the animated series. The font used by the Murray Franklin television show is also the same as the font for the Batman title. the animated series at the beginning of the movie, when Joker goes to Wayne Manor and meets Bruce Wayne Bruce slides down the pole in his treehouse like Adam West's 1966 Batman, we also end up meeting the younger version of Alfred during that encounter, but obviously at the end. from the movie the Waynes are outside the movie theater in Crime Alley the movies are all
eastereggs for Batman's origin in the comics and other origin stories from the Batman movies Zorro the Blade is just an updated version of the Mark of Zorro from the original version of his origin story in the 1940s, it's just that that was the version of Zorro that was playing at the time and the newer version of Zorro was playing in 1981, when this was supposed to be set. movie.
Excalibur is also a reference to the opening
sceneof Batman V Superman and of course. Joe Chill in a clown mask Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne facing Bruce Wayne, giving us our classic Batman origin story reference, they even do the shot of the pearls flying, the fact that he is wearing the clown mask is also a nod to Tim Burton. Batman's origin story where it was the Joker himself, Jack Napier, who committed the act instead of the comic Joe Chill. Have you ever danced with the devil under the pale moonlight? You could try to draw
referencesbetween Batman V Superman and Ben Affleck's version of Batman in this young version of Bruce Wayne, the timeline would line up for those versions, many people wonder how this relates to the new Batman trilogy that is coming out. is coming up with Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson because it's supposed to take place during the '90s, the only way that would happen.
The question is whether that movie takes place in the late '90s because this version of Bruce Wayne looks like he's barely 10 years old, but of course Todd Phillips was asked this very specific question if this version of the Joker franchise ever would cross paths with Matt Reeves Batman. trilogy and his answer was basically no. Robert Pattinson has just been cast as Batman. I know this is a totally different movie, but do you see those two worlds merging any time soon? No. Most of you probably also noticed the liberal Easter eggs for Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver.
In The King of Comedy, the origin story of the Jokers, from Arthur to the Joker, follows a very similar path to the story of Travis Bickel during the taxi driver and Robert De Niro's main character of the King of Comedy, who seeks to gain recognition and fame through terrible acts that the Joker is involved in. the movie is trying to get people to notice him, people are finally starting to notice me, there were a lot of visual and story references to both movies, like when Travis Bickle is playing with the gun while dancing without the Joker's shirt. he is dancing accidentally firing the gun sorry mom I was just watching an old war movie, there is also the very notable Charlie Chaplin, the modern day
easteregg, which is playing during the movie at Wayne Hall.
The Joker is going to try to confront Thomas Wayne about his ancestry the plot of Charlie Chaplin's modern-day film is about the plight of the worker during the Great Depression it is about class struggle in class struggle it is a great movie wall theme Joker the clown mask riots are happening outside the cinema that's why they focus so much on the visual differences between the riots and the streets and how crazy, dirty and horrible everything looks, when You walk into the theater and it's almost like you're walking into a palace as far as sequels go, Joaquin Phoenix hasn't really done that.
I didn't say anything about him coming back to do more. I'm sure the movies already broke a couple of October records. It broke Venom's October record, which is a new all-time disaster for the highest-grossing movie opening in October, but as I've said in previous Joker Movie Videos I've done, my most likely guess is that it's just They'll try to make another DC Black Label movie with another villain character or another Batman comic book character, just a really focused smaller movie based on a single character so you can get a Riddler movie or maybe they'd try to make a Riddler war movie. jokes and riddles where it's basically a Joker vs.
The Riddler movie with a little bit of Batman stuff thrown in, but he's not the main character, it's just about the Joker going to war. The Riddler or they make a DC Black Label movie about the Penguin or Rachel Ghul, any of their iconic comic book villains, so if you saw any great Easter eggs during the movie that I didn't mention in the video, write about them below in the comments. Let me know if you have any important questions about the movie. Well, obviously, everyone will still talk about what's real and what's fake in that
I already made a video about the ending of the movie.
