Joker is a deep dive character study into a deeply, deeply flawed character. It is gritty. It has surprises. It has violence, and blood. It has … [no spoilers allowed!] 🤐😳🤣
The origin story is there. And so is the foundation for a continued exploration of this character.

GO SEE THIS MOVIE‼️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
