    The first full trailer for the upcoming Joker movie has hit the internet and, to put it simply, it looks fantastic. It also looks exceptionally chilling.

    It's alleviated the fears that anyone possessing eyes and ears might have had, regarding whether or not it was a movie that was even worth making.

    It looks like nothing ever seen before in a comic book movie and Joaquin Phoenix's portrayal looks intriguing to say the least.

    One of the very obvious characteristics of Phoenix's Joker is that he's going to be very creepy - but could he be the creepiest Joker to date?

    That's the question we're going to try and answer in this video!

    Phoenix's Joker movie will be set in 1981 - depicting him as a failed stand-up comedian who turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City.

    The versions we'll be comparing him to are Cesar Romero's Joker from the 1960s Batman TV series and spin-off movie, Jack Nicholson's Joker from Tim Burton's 1989 Batman movie, Heath Ledger's Joker from 2008's brilliant The Dark Knight, Jared Leto's somewhat controversial Joker from 2016's Suicide Squad, Mark Hamill's animated version of the Joker who's been around in various media since 1992, and Cameron Monaghan's Joker from the Gotham TV series.

    We hope you enjoy the video! Please leave a comment letting us know what you thought about it. And don't forget to subscribe to Screen Rant's YouTube channel, so you never miss our great new video uploads in the future.

          I haven’t watched the video, but the reason why he is the creepiest because he might be that mentally ill person who is sitting next to you in the metro at any moment

            Definitely not the creepiest Joker. I mean have you seen the Joker that got his face cut off and then wears his own face as a mask as it rots and decomposes????

                the movie is honestly so smart, the first hour and a half or so is new and kind of confusing, but after that everything just...clicks. I watched it today and i’m so happy

                  Heath Ledger’s JOKER wanted chaos. He wanted to restart society. We don’t know much of his background. Joquain Phoenix’s JOKER learns that he has been adopted, abused during childhood, learns that Bruce Wayne is his father, learns that Bruce Wayne isn’t his father, and on top of all that he has many mental disorders, so Ledger’s JOKER gives off chaotic vibes, while Phoenix’s gives off depressing vibes.

                        He wasn't creepy at all, he was just a... sorry, sad loner that made me feel bad for him most of the time making him then most human and real Joker of them all at least for me.

                                        Because Nolan had too many shitty films over his career, I now hate him and'd never see his movies anymore, I no longer have a hard on for The Dark Knight. Phoenix and Joker is a thousand times better in any category.

                                          idk i still think heaths was the scariest joker. in most of his scenes i actually got scared. but when i watched the new joker movie, all i felt towards him was pity. when he would say crazy things or shoot people i was just thinking about how he deserves better lmao
