Warning: spoilers ahead for The LEGO Batman Movie and Suicide Squad. Don't read any further if you are not up to date on the latest DC films!
If you have seen The LEGO Batman Movie, then you likely already know that it is a revelation. The animated Batman adventure is a hilarious and endlessly faithful take on the Gotham City mythos, and it is one of the best versions of Batman ever committed to film.

In fact, The LEGO Batman Movie's version of The Joker is so good, that it is even better than Suicide Squad at capturing one vital aspect of The Clown's personality: his obsession with Batman.
Of all the villains who inhabit Batman's rogue gallery, there is no one more intimately linked to The Caped Crusader than The Clown Prince of Crime. The Joker is obsessed with Batman, and most of the best versions of the character have explicitly played up that obsession. Scott Snyder's Death of the Family story arc revolves around Joker trying to make Batman a better hero by killing the rest of The Bat Family, and The Dark Knight depicted a Joker literally "completed" by Batman.
If there's one constant in this endlessly malleable character, it's the fact that he lives for his relationship with The Caped Crusader. That's one of the key aspects of the character, and it's an idea that The LEGO Batman Movie leans directly into.

It's a well-worn concept from Batman's lore, and it's an idea that longtime Batman fans will instantly recognize from previous depictions of the character.
