    What about his mother's photograph Arthur finds which says "Love your smile. - TW" on its back? TW as in Thomas Wayne!

          Ok I just thought of something.
          What if the ending in Arkham wasn't real but was Arthur leaving his safe space in the hospital and finally being free

            I think that the movie specifically points out that his romantic relationship with Sophie was a part of his mental illness is an indicator that all other events that seemingly takes place for real, do actually happen.

              I have a minor hope that this whole movie was a slight fabrication/altering of events in Joker's head and that the end takes place in modern day and the next time we get a Joker, THIS is the Joker we get. Otherwise Batman's out fighting a 50-60 year old man who would've been on the losing end of a fight even in his physical prime. Plus it'd allow him to play with the character some, twisting the sympathetic Joker we got in this film into just another character.

                  I noticed the background of Arthur, the more he became joker, He's more of the centre of the frame and the background is more symmetrical....

                    I think that the ending was a reality just because joker was depressed. He WANTED to kill himself. But he didn't. He did not get what he wanted. I think this is the reason that there was an emphasis on the quote "I just hope my death is more meaningful than my life"

                          First time i watched this i had to leave before the end bc it was a very late screening and some psychopath and his friends threathened me bc of a milliliter of spilled slushie. I can take one psycho but not four without me being the one ending in prison. That sucked.

                            This movie had many funny moments in serious situation but it doesn't give you time to laugh because something sad ,cringy, or just plain ridiculous happens right after

                              Let me tell you something.
                              The title says "ending" and yet you're telling everything that happens in the movie.

                              Wtf dude

                                    everything in the movie after he stops taking his meds is in his head. Not just the movie tho... absolutely everything that happens in gotham including batman himself. The joker is imagining all of it from Arkam Asylum. None of it is real. I think that is the joke.

                                      It's all a dream in Arkham, if you look at the clocks that is shown throughout the movie

                                          Im just thinking.. we know for sure that bruce waynes parents get killed, dosent that conclude that it happends? like what are the odds for Arthur is fantasising about some random dude killing his parents and that they actually gets killed by some random dude?

                                              You didn't mention at the end before he goes on the Murray show. He finds a pic of his mom when she was younger and it's signed lovingly from T.W. does that mean he is bruce's half brother. And thomas used his power to hide and erase the records of it.

                                                So quick theory that may never get seen but I wanna put it out there. What if the movie is a sort of flashback. I don't know if the joker would ever find out that a random guy of his killed Thomas but if he did the joke he thought of would make more sense. He knows he's the reason for his greatest enemy and this whole telling is just him going through the motions in his mind of what he did what he should have done and the ending going off to meet the bat again.

                                                      I recently watched the Joker movie and there were one thing that I couldn't stop thinking about. In The Dark Night, Joker tells the stories about his scars. But these doesn't match with the Joker movie. In the first scars scene, Joker talks about his father killing his mother and then cutting the Joker. In the second story, he mentions his wife. I'm bad at theorizing and isn't that on to the DC universe, so I don't know if it's explained at some other point

                                                      Anyone knows the answer for this?

                                                        I think it's fairly easy to tell what was real and what wasn't however you can interptit it however you want which is a good thing. But if you pulled an "everything was a dream" that would be a let down. But i do like that you see him fantasise about being on murry only to see the difference when it actually happened and imagining being with Sophie. Only for him to go there and her telling him to go away making it apparent that their relationship wasn't real, then it cuts, he leaves and you hear sirens outside so you don't know what he did in there, but if you're sinister you may think he killed her, and if you're more innocent you might not. I personally do think he killed her.

                                                          I don't know what indicates that Arthur is stomping on a body in that scene... Pretty sure he was just taking his anger out on some trash. All of Arthur's fantasies are usually really vivid so I don't know why that one would seem to may or not be a body... Pretty much just looks like trash as well.

                                                            The cool part abt this movie is that Arthur is actually funny. Like with the midget and shooting his wall. Another example the gun in the children hospital. My favorite one yet when he has to punch out haha

                                                                    She asks what's so funny??

                                                                    Joker in the hospital is locked up which I assume is by Batman in the future because he has white strands of hair and no green hair

                                                                    The Real joke is >>>>

                                                                    And the people listening will believe him

Just like how he looks at the tv he is there with the rioters the he enters the theater undetected. At the end it cuts back to him in reality hunched over a table the same position he was left after the face punch hunched over the sink.

He knows what he’s doing, he knows that he’s imagining, he’s controlling his vivid thoughts and not getting confused with reality but a joke on us to get confused. But no, he knows.
