Joaquin Phoenix as Joker

SyFy Wire: “This week, after months of rumors and whispers, we finally got confirmation that Oscar-nominee and Golden Globe winner Joaquin Phoenix (The Master, Walk the Line) will star as The Joker in an dark origin story film for the character not connected to anything in the DC Extended Universe. Now, Phoenix is finally speaking about taking the role and what we can expect from the project.”

If you’ve seen Joaquin Phoenix in You Were Never Really Here you’ve seen his potential as the Joker. If you haven’t seen the film I recommend you see it. He’s wonderful.

I’m looking forward to this Joker origin story. Hopefully we get to see the Clown Prince of Crime in full regalia.
