    This is what they said about it with dc and joker and stuff.. "it is intended to launch DC Black, a series of DC-based standalone films. The film, which acts as an origin story for the Joker, is set in 1981 and follows Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian who turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City. " You go be right but with this and the birds of pray movie. They said they are standalone films but still in a way related to DC.. (or what ever DC blavk is..) to be honest because we know there are multi universe for DC comics and Marvel. (in this case DC for now) it would not surprise me that there is a joker like Arthur Fleck that has yet to be written....form the comicts and the animation we are all so use to the joker looking one way, and when we see him look like something completely different think its not him.. Like and example woupd be from suicide squad..we all know in a way that cant be joker because the we know how joker is he woupd never had done something like that to his body. Unless that joker is from a different universe... But at the end of the day for me.. I really like if they take a character and make it as something that not everbody would see that character as. (another example is the tv show Gotham. It is based of the comice but they but a 21's century out put to it but still made it look kind of old..)

    I like how this came out just after the final trainer for Ep9, but obviously you didn't have time to take it into account...and Rey is clearly pictured as a dark side character in there, helping your theory. It could easily be a crappy dream sequence or someone's vision or whatever though.

    What if the theory is all the abusers from each character was actually It. Like if he's a shapshifter can't he became the guys grandfather that raped him. Probably that's how they got the shinning through abuse itself because they all connect to It. So maybe not telepathy, maybe they are just all connected to It and anyone else involved from him.

    Wait, what if the moon is a metaphor for something. What if it’s a metaphor for everything isn’t what it seems. What if the aliens are humans in disguise and they’re the people behind Local 58! That must be how they’re connecting to earth! What if... they’ve been here from the beginning. What if they sent some aliens to wipe out the human race before it even started! And when that didn’t work, they tried other ways. When T.V. was invented, they found they’re solution. Boom.

    1) it's never confirmed that there is a single monster. 2) the implication of criminally insane not being suicidal when witnessing said monster, seems to be that they are already delusional and what they're seeing is validation. 3) im pretty sure the writer googled a handful of demons who fit the bill and slapped them in the script expecting the internet not to fact check.
