Joker - the origin

Joker, directed by Todd Phillips, is the origin story of Detective Comics #168 (February 1951) who introduced the character as Red Hood. The man was later known as Batman's arch-nemesis 'The Joker' in its original continuity. Joker is simply regarded as the most baffling DC villains, whose character has been given different flourishes over the years. The character, however, was immortalised 11 years ago when portrayed by the legendary, Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.
