  • Get yourself some NEW Theory Wear!! ►

    This year we are getting a seemingly brand new take on the classic Batman villain, the Joker. This version stars Joaquin Phoenix as a failed comedian named Arthur Fleck - a new name for the old character. People are saying it's a whole new origin story for the Joker and I think that's true... but maybe not in the way most people are thinking. I think this Joker is not actually REAL! What do I mean? You're about to find out!

      I've been subscribed for a long time now, I think when I joined it was right before your "golden era" with five nights at freddies getting Game Theory super popular, and then for a while there afterword you kinda dropped in quality to me and while I didn't unsubscribe I did stop watching, but this video really goes back to your better videos in my mind. I really hope that your future videos will feel the same to watch because I've really missed watching these.

        No the only diagnosis is not schizophrenia, and the second thing, there is no garanty that an in individual will act certainly as the statiscs predectided a society.
        The third point why are talking about something that we didn't watch yet?

                                I’ve got a question I really wish you’d answer.

                                When Miles’s uncle dies, the other Spider-Men (?woot) say that it happens to everyone. How would they know that it happens to everyone if they’d never met each other and it’s their first time going to another Spider-Universe?

Also the basis of diagnosis seems too cherry picked, a laughing spontaneously could simply be a sad comedian trying to convince themselves otherwise... Anyway I don't mean to say this theory is wrong but rather I guess I don't want it to be right, seems far to simple and obvious compared to what I'm hoping for
