So Borderlands 3 was announced and had a trailer released at Pax East 2019 during the Gearbox conference which was also live streamed. For a long time it was assumed that the Borderlands series was discontinued and gearbox had actually cancelled plans to make a 3rd installment to the series because no one had heard anything about a sequel even multiple years after the release of Borderlands 2 which was in 2012. Also Borderlands 2 is still doing decently as a game with fans continuing to play because it is now just an old classic and said to be one of the best looter-shooter games of all time which attracts new people to try it out at least once and they usually end up falling in love with it because of how fun the game play is and how entertaining and immersive the story and whole world is. When I am writing this Borderlands 3 has just been released so we don’t have too much information to go off of. However when I post that it may be different but in the trailer at least there were many familiar faces to the Borderlands series and and fans of the Borderlands series and it boasted a selection of 1 billion guns to collect and use. I am pretty excited for the new Borderlands because it was so unexpected because I had given up on the idea of a third installment to Borderlands and even if there isn’t much more the game has to offer compared to Borderlands 2 as in new features i’d still be happy playing it.
This is different then what I usually blog about but I really wanted to talk about it. Overall I think this Joker can be really good I don’t think it will be a disappointment like some other DC movies. For one Joaquin Phoenix is a great actor and from small parts of the trailer like when he does the signature joker laugh and when he is dancing, I really see the potential for what a great joker he can be. Also I think its cool cause unlike other comic based movies that are usually action packed with effects and fight scenes this movie seems to just be the audience following the Joker as he descends into madness which to me is very appealing. The one think I think is a bit interesting is that Bruce Wayne is a little boy in the trailer and Bruce’s parents are still alive this means that this joker is not the one Batman would fight in the DC Cinematic Universe. The Joker that the Batman most likely would fight is Jared Leto the Joker from the Suicide Squad which personally I liked the idea behind a new type of Joker but thought it was executed very badly, I’m assuming that Jared Leto’s Joker who seems to be more of a mob boss than a criminally insane murderer who did not play well with others was inspired by Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker in the past of DC’s movie universe. I am interested though in what Joker will do because I think at least that the first half will be Joaquin’s Joker descending into madness and the second part being the Joker getting revenge against the city that has tormented him so much. So what Joker will do to get his revenge is intriguing to me as well as who will stop him and how that is if anyone does. Personally as well I would rather watch the new Joker Movie than Avengers Endgame, because the world has known about infinity war and its second part for years now and waiting a couple more weeks is nothing to me but since I just learned about this Joker movie recently and can’t stop watching the trailer, I remember hearing Jared Leto’s Joker would be getting a standalone movie but I really wasn’t all that excited for it but knowing now that is not the case I would definitely rather watch The Joker movie right now.
