Joaquin Phoenix's Joker Origin Movie a Go at Warner Bros.

Phoenix recently finalized his deal to star as the arch-nemesis of Batman.

The Joker origin movie is officially a go at Warner Bros.

Joaquin Phoenix recently finalized his deal to star as the arch-nemesis of Batman and shooting will begin September in New York.

Todd Phillips is directing and co-wrote the script, which the studio describes as being an ďexploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.Ē Scott Silver co-wrote the script.

The studio hasnít staked out a release date for the movie, which goes against the grain of most comic book movies that plant flags years in advance. But the Joker standalone movie is meant to be different from other comic book super hero movies.

The budget is in the $55 million range, significantly lower than the tentpoles that dominate the form. And the standalone is meant to be darker and more experimental in tone and content (at least as experimental as a studio can be with established brands such as DC), which is described as being akin to a crime drama.

That said, there is a chance that the movie could be ready for a release as early as late 2019, depending on various factors.

Warners has a possible second Joker movie in the works as Jared Leto, who played the character in suicide Squad, now has his own solo movie project in development.

Emma Tillinger Koskoff (The Wolf of Wall Street) is producer on the Joker origin standalone while Richard Baratta is an exec producer.

Phoenix, who won a best actor award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017 for Lynne Ramseyís You Were Never Really Here, stars in Donít Worry He Wonít Get Far On Foot, which opens Friday.

this guy is gonna murder this role. i can't believe i never even thought of him as a potential joker. he might be the only one capable of pulling off the role looks wise AND put on a performance that may be remotely comparable to heath.

I mean if anyone can pull it off as well as Ledger, it's Phoenix.

Granted, I feel like we said that about Jared Leto too

Damn n*ggas hatin on joaquin. Dude is one of the most talented guys in hollywood and hes awkward/eccentric. He gon pull this off, the only thing is that he looks too old for the role and hes gonna have to lose some weight which might make him look older

Joaquin is a great actor but I’m not really interested in seeing him as the Joker.

Naw, I think he just signed up for his own film. This inst connected to the dceu, it's some new sh*t their trying. Making a separate more dark film universe that doesn't connect at all.

fu*k off this is Joaquin Phoenix. Outside of Robert Downey Jr., Marvel can keep their Sesame Street caliber actors.
