Fans noticed a topic trending on Twitter – “Disney’s Joker” – and you may be wondering why.
It’s because the Cruella movie trailer debuted and the movie focuses on the 101 Dalmatians villain, Cruella de Vil. Fans are comparing this origin story to that of the Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix. Cruella stars Emma Stone and will be released on May 28, 2021.
The Joker movie received very mixed reviews, but ended with Joaquin sweeping awards season and winning the Oscar for his work in the film.

Emma Stone is legit one of my favorite actors, period.
This is definitely Disney's Joker. There are even similar themes in the trailer w/ Joker and the Nolan Batman trilogy. https://t.co/sTMpstVjkP

Everyone on here is saying this is Disney’s Joker. And I’m just sitting here thinking this trailer was better than the entirety of that film. Had no expectations for this and still really don’t but now I’m mildly excited and curious? https://t.co/sD1hVyZIKR

I don't like to judge a movie too much before I see it. Storywise, it doesn't seem to be a "Disney's Joker," but more like 1992's Catwoman in Batman Returns. Perhaps, the movie could be another wash of a dark, gritty reboot. But I love Emma Stone, and it could end up being fun. https://t.co/6GAtRKG2D3
