JOKER Movie May Feature A Bullied Younger Take On The Classic BATMAN Villain With A "Permanent Smile"

Some rumored details on Warner Bros.' planned Joker origin movie have surfaced, and they indicate that the story will focus on a much younger incarnation of the Clown Prince of Crime. More past the jump...

Last week, news broke that WB was planning a Joker origin movie that would not be set in the current DCEU.

At the time we were told that the Todd Philips-helmed film would take influence from producer Martin Scorsese's early work such as Raging Bull and Taxi Driver, and now we might just have a few intriguing - if no doubt polarising - new details to add.

Former MMA fighter Brendan Schaub is friends with Phillips’ agent Todd Feldman, and while appearing on The Joe Rogan Experience (of all places) he revealed the following:


“My boy Todd Feldman put this together with Todd Phillips. It’s dark. It’s like a dark Joker. As a kid, he had a permanent smile and everyone made fun of him. It’s like on the streets of Brooklyn. It’s super dark and real.”

How much stock you decide to put into this is up to you - but there is a decent chance Schaub did hear a few tidbits relating to the project, which is only in the very early planning stages.

How would you guys feel about a little proto-Joker being bullied as he runs around the mean streets of Gotham with a perma-grin? Listen to Schaub's comments for yourselves around the 1:03 mark, and be sure to let us know what you think in the usual place.
