The Clowns are a major antogonistic faction in the 2019 comic book psychological thriller film Joker, the first installment of the newly launched DC Black film series.
They are a massive movement of people which wear clown masks on their faces, aiming to instigate an anarchist mutiny against the rich and the powerful population. They were inspired by Arthur Fleck's murder against 3 Wall St. men on the subway.
Their mutiny eventually triggers widespread riots and causes the deaths of many rich people, including the Waynes leaving Bruce a orphan.
- The Clowns may have been inspired by Cult of Jerome, Church of Jeremiah Valeska or The Jokerz from the Batman Beyond series.
