Welcome to the Heavy Spoilers show I'm your host Paul aka the guy who loves to put a smile on that face and this video we're breaking down Barry Keoghan's version of The Joker.
Appearing at the end of the movie, heavily cloaked in shadow he very much teases what could be happening in the next film and though his appearance lasts less than a minute he's a big talking point when you come out of the film.
Matt Reeves has discussed the character in a bit more depth than what we got in the film and it's helped to flesh out his take and also the basis for it. This includes a number of comics, films and lots of things we can look at to guess where it's all going.
Throughout this video we're gonna be breaking it all down but if you enjoy it then hit the thumbs up button like you've got a crowbar and it's jason todd's head. Don't forget to subscribe as we're your ace in the hole when it comes to videos discussing all the latest comic book movies and shows.
With that out the way, huge thank you for clicking this, now let's get into the video.
Ok so it seems like every other year we get a different version of the Joker. There's been Jared Leto, Barry Keoghan and if you think he'll be the last of it then you must be Joaquin. Like Joaquin Phoenix...anyway he's one of the most iconic characters of all time and though we've had many versions that have come and gone we all know that Gotham loves a comeback.
Now much in the same way that Batman Begins ended with a tease of the Clown Prince Of Crime, The Batman does too.
We find him in a cell beside the Riddler and though we can't fully see his face, we can tell that he's heavily scarred and we wanna know how he got them.
This is way more cut up than Ledgers incarnation and it actually has basis in the creation of the character. When developing the villain Bob Kane and Bill Finger based him heavily on the 1928 film The Man Who Laughs. This featured a man who had a rictus grin across his entire face that he was unable to get rid of. The Man Who Laughs title was late referenced in the Batman book of the same name which centred around Batman's first showdown with the clown Prince Of Crime.
Interestingly he killed several high ranking citizens in Gotham, attempted to murder Bruce Wayne and tried to destroy the resevoir in order to flood the city which is something that Reeves might have looked at for his story in The Batman. However in an interview with IGN he did talk about how the silent film and very much the roots of the character influenced his take.
