Without a doubt, The Joker was one of the biggest hits of 2019, not just commercially but also critically ending up on a ridiculous amount of best-of lists and starting buzz for its star Joaquin Phoenix come Oscar time. But according to Kevin Smith, the mind behind Clerks, and Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, the film had a much darker ending than anyone could have expected.
Originally, the ending in the hospital was different. He’s in the hospital and he laughs chuckles, and he says, ‘I was just thinkin’ of something funny. What was supposed to happen was you flashed back to the death of Thomas and Martha Wayne and it was him killing Thomas and Martha Wayne and the boy was screaming and crying and he turned to walk away and he turned back, shrugged, and shot the kid. Credits. What the fuck, man! This world has no Batman!
That would have been a much different Joker. What do you think? Let us know down below!
