13 Joker Easter Eggs and Inspirations: The King of Comedy is Just the Start

Zorro: After Thomas and Martha Wayne are murdered by a gunman in a Joker-inspired mask, we see a theater marquee advertising the films Blow Out and Zorro the Gay Blade. This serves the dual purpose of setting the film firmly in 1981, when both films were released, and honoring Batman tradition: Bruce Wayne’s parents always die after taking him to see Zorro, and Zorro’s masked vigilantism inspires Bruce to find his own dark alter ego.

    You forgot to include “Conquest for the Planet of the Apes” from 1972. The end riot scene, with Joker being pulled form the back of the crushed police car, laid out on the hood of another vehicle and then rising to his feet as the night sky burns with flames and the crowd’s anger, recalls the last 15 minutes of “Conquest for the Planet of the Apes” without question.
