"Man, this Joker is real creepy. The casting of Barry Keoghan is f****** top-notch. I know Reeves don't wanna touch Joker again, but I so f****** hope does," one person wrote on Twitter.
"So Basically they've had a run in & Whatever Joker looked like before is NOT how he looked after Their encounter. You can tell Batman almost killed this man. Probably a Batarang to the Mouth. I NEED more of Barry Keoghan. Yes," another added.
A third wrote: "Dear God, I need more. His presence on screen makes me genuinely uncomfortable. Never felt that way about a Joker before."
Despite the Joker not making the final cut, the film did show other legendary Batman villains.
The Penguin and Carmen Falcone appear in the film and are played by Colin Farrell and John Turturro, respectively, and Selina Kyle, or Catwoman, who Zoe Kravitz played, also had a starring role.
If The Batman develops other films, it's quite clear that people want to see more of Gotham City's twisted villain.
