In the movie Batman (1989), is the Joker Batman's brother?

They know each other when they meet, and they look kind of similar. Could he be Batman's brother? I don't think there's anything to say he isn't.

    No, but that would have been a hell of a twist.

    In the universe of the 1989 movie, they are not related.  They know each other later in the movie because, Batman encountered Jack Napier before he became Joker.

    In no telling of the Batman /Joker  tale....... has the Joker ever been Bruce's own brother.

    Stop asking this question they aren’t related. Read the comic where Bruce dies and his dad becomes Batman and his mom becomes the joker that should staisfy you.

    No.  They don't look similar.  Jack Nicholson and Michael Keaton look nothing alike.  There is absolutely NOTHING in the movie even hinting at this connection.  In fact the basic story was precisely that Jack Napier was a nobody.  He was just a small time hood with a flair for the dramatic with his "dance with the devil" schtick.  

    This killing of Thomas and Marth Wayne then created Batman, who years later knocked Napier into a vat of chemicals thereby creating the Joker.  So they created each other.  That is the connection.

    The film, and the comics, make it very clear that the Joker and Batman are not at all related.

    In the film, the Joker was in his early 20s when he killed Thomas and Martha Wayne, both of whom were in their 30s.
