• Due to datamining of the demo files, substantial leaks are now everywhere. As a reminder, some of these are in-development screenshots and may point to events that aren't going to be in the final game. Some of them are clearly going to be in the game. The TLS stance is this: Any thread which will contain discussion on the leaked images/ details must clearly contain [SPOILERS] within the title. Anything within those threads does not need to be spoiler tagged. Any POST anywhere on the board containing spoilers must be spoiler tagged or it will be removed and warned. Please report this where you see it. Let's try to make sure everyone can still freely post until everyone has a chance to play this game please!

Joker

#27
Finally watched it. Possibly the greatest "what if comic book villains existed in real life" movie of all time. It connects both to real societal issues and the comic book mythology in smart, fluid ways.

Bruce Wayne going down the pole in the playground was the greatest reference to 60s Batman that I have ever seen. :lol: Love it.

I suspect that a person not familiar with Batman may view the film as more bleak than those who are familiar with the mythos. Because the rest of us know the story, we know that some years later Batman will rise from the ashes and counteract the evils in society, no matter who is behind them. To those who know these fictional figures, the end of Joker is only the beginning of the story. Gotham's recovery will come, it just so happens that this movie doesn't show that part.
