This is a strange one.

Joaquin Phoenix si a great casting choice IMHO. The trailer looks good, direction and art-wise. Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese are involved. These are all of course very positive things.
Do I think The Joker needs an origin story? Or that a Joker movie makes sense without Batman? Probably not. The makeup? Mmm... not my cup of tea.
I like The Joker a lot. I've enjoyed comics with a pirate Joker, a vampire Joker, hero Joker, multiple universes Jokers, future Jokers and tv series and films with Cesar Romero Jokers, Jack Nicholson Jokers and Heath Ledger Jokers (NOT Jared Leto Jokers).
I'm getting the vibe this is an "Elseworlds" movie, and we're not used to that on film. A one-off "artsy" project with very talented artists doing their version of the Joker character. No canon, no continuity.
If it's that (and if it's good obviously) I think I'm up for it.
