The Wall Street Three are major antagonists in the 2019 psychological thriller film Joker, the first installment of the DC Black film series.
They are three well-off financially residents of Gotham City's Wall Street who work for Wayne Enterprises. One fateful night, they harass a young woman on the subway but when Arthur Fleck accidentally starts laughing at them, they proceed to assault him, unleashing Fleck's anger and inadvertently kicking off the film's plot.
They were portrayed by Carl Lundstedt, Michael Benz and Ben Warheit in their first villainous roles.
After Arthur Fleck gets fired for bringing a gun to work, he gets on the subway home. In the subway, he was watching how a young and beautiful woman was harassed by three young and wealthy Wall Street stockbrokers from Wayne Enterprises as one of them is asking her if she wants French fries. Arthur seeks to save her, but bursts out in his uncontrollable laughter. He gets the attention of the brokers as the woman moves to a different cart.
As they come toward Arthur, one of them starts singing "Send in the Clowns" by Frank Sinatra as he is still laughing uncontrollably. Once they ask Arthur why he was laughing, Arthur tries to show his license out of his bag, but instead one of them takes his bag away from him, and then they start to attack Arthur as he tries to fight back. Then one of them grabs him from behind and the other one hits him to the ground. As Arthur is on the ground, all three of them start kicking him. This incident finally causes Arthur to snap.
While Arthur is still on the ground, he grabs the gun out of his pocket and immediately shoots one of the guys in the head and shoots the other one twice in the chest dead. The last one tries to run away once the train comes to a stop, and he is able to escape the train, but gets shot on his right leg. Wounded, the last guy tries to escape Arthur in the subway crawling up the staircase to almost successfully doing so, but gets shot dead by him.
Afterwards their deaths sparked an uprising in Gotham City against the wealthy and elite.
- Even though they were the first victims of Arthur Fleck, the Wall Street Three are so despised by the fans of Joker to the point many feel that Arthur was completely justified in his actions, even earning sympathy from some fans.
- Technically, however, Arthur was just justified of shooting the first two bullies in self-defense, but the third bully tried to run away from him and no longer posed a threat to his life. Although if he let the third one get away, he would've told the police that Arthur just shot them out of nowhere for no reason and even if Arthur told the police his side of the story, the police would've believed the third Wall Street guy even though he would've lied about why Arthur shot his friends.
- There are many issues that could make it difficult for those around him and even the audience to believe with Arthur Fleck is telling the truth.
- Many of the contradictions and lies and ambiguousness throughout the story that make it difficult to understand what really happened between him and the Wall Street Three.
- Randall and the others talking about the Clown Vigilante suspect being suspected with a face paint or a mask that would inspire the eventual posthumous upbringing of people in face masks or face paints.
- Arthur Fleck had many more shots than the rounds at the Wall Street Three that he had in his gun that Randall gave to him.
- Arthur going after the last one of the Wall Street Three who was begging for the train to stop and trying to escape from Arthur Fleck.
- Arthur Fleck's laugh provoked them but not much depth goes into why they got mad about it.
- The way Arthur Fleck confesses about just only killing the Wall Street Three but not getting into why he did it other than saying that they are "awful" and saying that if he "was the one dying in the street they walk aside him" but not specifying that they attacked him which could have cleared up the confusion but still some questions on why Arthur Fleck went after the last guy running and screaming for his life.
