Looks good. Reminds me a little about the best clown revenge movie of all time. The Last Circus:

I think that it's an interesting interpretation of the character for joker not to have a facial scar. That was part of his crazy and creepy.

Facial scarring isn't really traditionally part of the Joker character. That kind of came out from The Dark Knight movie, but wasn't really a typical part of the character before then.

Gotham looks like "the city" in Se7en.

Joaquin has a cleft palate scar. They could have used that, but not in the current environment of "awareness".

The Dark Knight is still the best super hero movie ever. But then I prefer gritty stuff to cartoons like the avengers.

I'm getting kinda tired of The Joker

When do The Smoker and The Midnight Toker get their turn?

Now that's entertainment!

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.
~ John Adams, Letter to Jonathan Jackson (October 2, 1780).

The only Joker that I actually found scary was Heath Ledger's, and that's in large part to the fact that he had no backstory - or rather, his backstory kept changing. Darth Vader is a heck of a lot less scary once you know he was a whiny kid who was just prone to tantrums. Ledger's Joker was constantly shifting. You didn't know what he wanted. You didn't know what he was capable of. And you had no idea whether he was just crazy or was a pathological genius working a few levels above you.

Normally, a backstory can add a lot of depth to a villian - look at Thanos versus whatever the big monster guy was in Justice League. But Ledger's Joker was one of the rare times that a character was scarier not because he didn't have a backstory, but because he clearly did and you were being kept away from it.

This movie looks like it'll turn the Joker into an anti-hero, which seems so un-Jokery.

That said, I'll probably see it...

As a kid, I had the graphic novels "The Greatest Joker Stories Ever Told" and "the Killing Joke". Unlike Marvel, DC was much more consistent with canon and back stories. Originally he was the Red Hood who fell in a vat of chemicals and became the joker. In the killing joke, he was an engineer turned standup comedian who failed. To make money for his pregnant wife, he assist some hoods to rob a company adjacent to his old employer. There each wear a red hood, but the robbery goes wrong with his accomplices dying. To escape batman and the law, he too ends up in a vat of chemical that permanently bleach his skin and create his other fatures. Make matters worse, his pregnant wife dies contributing to his insanity. The Burton Batman film borrowed heavily from the Red Hood, this one appears to borrow from the Killing Joke. I don't know where Ledger's joker came.

Killing Joke was written by Alan Moore, of V for Vendetta and Watchmen fame.

That matches typical Joker background in the comics. Part of the weirdness of Joker is that we don't really know where he came from or why. There are multiple origins in the comics, and Joker says in one that he prefers for his past to be multiple choice.

Not scarring. That's chemically induced perma-smile, which is more in line with traditional Joker lore.
