There’s a reason why that freakishly red scar of a smile is so popular on t-shirts and collectables. Or, why we continue to dress up as the Joker every Halloween even though he’s technically a supervillain who would burn down a city for one good laugh.
The truth is that the Joker is not just a psychopathic and nihilistic murderer, he’s a complicated character who thrives on absurdity. His crimes are not fuelled by the desire for money or ambition but on something that is more philosophical.
That’s why even though we cheer for Batman, the Joker’s unique way with words catches us off guard on a deeper and darker level.
Check them out yourself. We think these Joker quotes from all the Batman movies so far, are so unapologetically relatable.
The latest Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix is set to release in a few days and we’re totally stoked about it. We recommend this movie be “unapologetically enjoyed”, just like a glass of Singleton whisky.
