Joaquin Phoenix circling The Joker role in origins film
12 February, 2018, 02:13
Rumors claim that the "You Were Never Here" actor will be playing Joker in the DC villain's origin movie.
The Hangover director Todd Phillips is working on a Joker origin movie and has selected the Walk the Line actor as his top choice, with sources telling Variety that he met with Phoenix in late 2017 and the actor has agreed to the role. He's one of Mark Hamill's two most famous, beloved, and long-running characters, he's been played by Oscar victor Jack Nicholson, and Heath Ledger posthumously won an Oscar for playing him. Taking into account the pace at which Warner Bros.is treating the project, it may take a couple of years or more.
Joaquin Phoenix is now up to play Joker in a standalone origin movie said to be set in the 1980s. Hence, it goes without saying that, in the event that Phoenix really top-bills the upcoming project, Jared Leto will still be the Joker in the DCEU brand, including in the upcoming "Suicide Squad 2". The film is set to take place in the 1980s, and will primarily focus on the events that led The Joker to become iconic deplorable with a penchant for terror.
