    The movie doesn't see release for several months so I'm not surprised there isn't any merch out yet. I know it's a different audience but doesn't mean anything that much, Deadpool was R rated and both movies got HT releases.

    yeah seriously... theres no merch because the movie is months away,

    its DC and its a joker movie... the movie can be a steaming pile of crap and if anyone thinks that they won't still be drawing up to their ears in joker figures, officially licensed and otherwise - of all scales, high and lower end is dreaming.

    The one thing that makes me cautious of action figures is that this likely didn't have a superhero film contract; they want it to be a big Oscar player for Joaquin who might even get a nomination if he's as good as he normally is, so it'd be closer to a contract that Cooper signed for A Star is Born or something.
    I know some people have issues with the sculpt, and yeah he doesn't look as skinny as he does in the trailer, but I quite like the figure so far - especially for $95. Hopefully Hot Toys does do a Joker though, maybe even a DeNiro too from this film.

    The intended audience for this movie is different from the intended audience for Deadpool.

    What does that have to do with anything about whether adults buy Hot Toys? I mean literally that makes no sense. They played this trailer in front of Spider-Man Far From Home, so is that the intended audience?

    I can't believe how you guys are bending over backwards trying to come up with reasons why they wouldn't do a figure for one of the most popular characters in comic based movies, one of Hot Toys most popular characters they love to create, and most importantly he SELLS.

    Nothing?

    I don't remember anyone saying that adults do or do not buy Hot Toys. As an adult, I can tell you that I do buy Hot Toys.

    You're jumping all over the place, man.

    I mean literally that makes no sense.
    You're telling me.

    I think the intended audience is arthouse film lovers and critics.

    Assessing reality and likely possibilities is not bending over backwards.

    Tell that to Jared Leto.

    BTW, if you read what's been posted, you'd understand that some of us are positing that it's perhaps not actually up to Hot Toys - that they might not be able to make one even if they wanted to.

    But hey, maybe I'm wrong and maybe you're right. So I'll tell you what - I'll put my money where my mouth is. I'll bet you 20 bucks that there won't be a Joaquin Phoenix figure released (or even announced for pre-order with prototype pics displayed) from Hot Toys 12 months after the movie's release.

    You seem so sure that you're right and that we're "bending over backwards." Are you sure enough to put some dough on the line?
