Joaquin Phoenix In Talks To Play Joker In Standalone Movie

According to several reports, Joaquin Phoenix is rumored to play The Joker in a DC standalone film with Todd Phillips attached to produce and direct. This comes as quite a surprise since I had been hearing that Martin Scorsese was supposedly attached with Leonardo DiCaprio in negotiation to play the lead.

This is all still in the very early stages and WB has not commented. But if we follow my UHMC philosophy, I think Phoenix is a fine choice for the clown prince. My larger concern is Todd Phillips as director. Time will certainly tell in the coming months the rest of the cast and crew. I estimate that the film would release in 2020.

I’ll keep you posted.
