JOKER final trailer reaction by the joker – the joker (Heath Ledger) impression
JOKER final trailer reaction by the joker. the joker impression of Heath Ledger from the dark knight.
It’s time for the last laugh: Warner Bros. released the final trailer for Joker, its standalone origin story for Batman’s infamous arch villain.
The final trailer gives us a deeper, if not linear, look at Arthur Fleck’s descent into madness and becoming the Joker. Fleck (played by Joaquin Phoenix) begins as a little bit odd but ostensibly harmless — he just wants to make people laugh. But society doesn’t give him that chance, with everyone from a concerned mother on a bus to late-night comedian Murray Franklin (played by Robert De Niro) picking him apart for his sense of humor and stomping on his dreams. For Arthur, being misunderstood by society is death by a thousand cuts, and Franklin’s rebuke in particular awakens his psychopathic alter ego.
What happens next is a violent spiral into the famed character. And with no Batman in sight, it looks like there’s little in the way of Fleck exacting revenge on all his critics. By the end, we’ll get to see the man as we all remember him: the one with that harrowing laugh and hideous, perpetual smile.
“Can you introduce me as Joker?” Fleck asks at the end of the trailer, painted in his ghoulish spin on clown makeup just before he heads onstage. The red smile is too wide, the eyes too perky to be anything but harmless. The last thing we hear is a haunting version of the Stephen Sondheim show tune “Send in the Clowns.”

The Dark Knight is a 2008 superhero film directed, co-produced, and co-written by Christopher Nolan. Based on the DC Comics character Batman, the film is the second installment of Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy and a sequel to 2005’s Batman Begins, starring Christian Bale and supported by Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Morgan Freeman. In the film, Bruce Wayne / Batman (Bale), Police Lieutenant James Gordon (Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Eckhart) form an alliance to dismantle organized crime in Gotham City, but are menaced by an anarchistic mastermind known as the Joker (Heath Ledger), who seeks to undermine Batman’s influence and turn the city to chaos. Christopher Nolan had wanted to work with Ledger on a number of projects in the past (including unsuccessfully approaching Ledger for the role of Batman in Batman Begins) and was agreeable to Ledger’s chaotic interpretation of the character. When Ledger saw Batman Begins, he realized a way to make the character work that was consistent with the film’s tone: he described his Joker as a “psychopathic, mass murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy”. In the film, the Joker has a Glasgow smile, and his trademark chalk-white skin and red lips are makeup rather than the result of chemical bleaching, as in the traditional portrayal of the character. Throughout the film, the Joker states his desire to upset social order through crime, and comes to define himself by his conflict with Batman. To prepare for the role, Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month, formulating the character’s posture, voice, and personality, and kept a diary, in which he recorded the Joker’s thoughts and feelings. While he initially found it difficult, Ledger eventually generated a voice unlike Jack Nicholson’s character in Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman film. He was also given Batman: The Killing Joke and Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth, which he “really tried to read and put it down”. Ledger also cited A Clockwork Orange and Sid Vicious as “a very early starting point for Christian [Bale] and I. Ledger was allowed to shoot and mostly direct the videos the Joker sends out as warnings. Each take Ledger made was different from the last. Nolan was impressed enough with the first video shoot that he chose to not be present when Ledger shot the video with a kidnapped reporter (Anthony Michael Hall). On January 22, 2008, after he had completed filming The Dark Knight, Ledger died of an accidental prescription drug overdose, leading to intense press attention and memorial tributes. “It was tremendously emotional, right when he passed, having to go back in and look at him every day during editing”, Nolan recalled. “But the truth is, I feel very lucky to have something productive to do, to have a performance that he was very, very proud of, and that he had entrusted to me to finish.” All of Ledger’s scenes appear as he completed them in the filming; in editing the film, Nolan added no “digital effects” to alter Ledger’s actual performance. Nolan has dedicated the film in part to Ledger’s memory. The Joker Box keeps Heath Ledger’s memory and his portrayal of the joker alive.
