In ‘joker‘, Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) works as a clown for a talent agency and, every week, has to go to a social worker, due to his known mental problems. After being fired, Fleck reacts badly to the mockery of three men in the middle of the subway and kills them. The murders start a grassroots movement against Gotham City’s elite, of which Thomas Wayne (Brett Cullen) is its largest representative.
