Let’s Look at the Joker Anyway!
The Batman did great in theaters and made a ton of money. But several weeks have passed now and people are moving on — so how about DC juice interest in the movie by releasing a deleted scene that fully features Barry Keoghan’s Joker! Only teased in the actual movie, this 5-minute scene does not shy around the Joker.
I think this is great! Releasing a deleted scene like this is a fun way to spark some new interest in the movie. And why not go hog wild with the new interpretation of the Joker? People like the Joker. People love to talk about that Joker tease in the movie. This is a great way to expand the universe of The Batman without saying anything yet about a sequel. Fun little video.
I also love the idea that the Joker has already been done in this universe. He came and went sometime in Batman’s first year, and now he’s behind bars in Arkham. Hopefully this means we won’t get Joker as the main villain in the sequel.
