Joaquin Phoenix in Talks to Play the Joker in Todd Phillips's Standalone DC Movie

Joaquin Phoenix

This would be a standalone movie under a new brand and not related to the current DC Extended Universe where Joker Leto plays The Joker.

Joaquin Phoenix is an American actor, producer, music video director, musician, and activist.

What's still most baffling about this project is the involvement of Phillips, who crafts collections of moving images that resemble movies, but are really just trash piles that you watch while contemplating the finality of all existence.

The untitled Joker movie is said to borrow inspiration from Scorsese's Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, and is rumored to see a future Clown Prince of Crime who was tormented in his youth.

Amtrak blames CSX for deadly collision
On Jan. 31, a train carrying Republican members of Congress to a West Virginia retreat collided with a garbage truck . Michael Kempf , 54, of Savannah, Georgia were the conductor and engineer, respectively, of the Amtrak train .

Todd Phillips (The Hangover, War Dogs) is directing and co-writing the script with Scott Silver (8 Mile, The Fighter).

There had been rumors that Leonardo DiCaprio would take on the role but the plan fell through.

The source also reports that the potential film will take place in the '80s and will have grittier look at crime in Gotham.

Of all the Caped Crusader's enemies through the years, the Joker is by far the most well-known. "There were too many requirements that went against my instincts for character". For his work as an actor, Phoenix has received a Grammy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and has three Academy Award and British Academy Film Award nominations. Warner Bros had no comment on the news. If Phillips is able to ultimately nab Phoenix for the role, this would be his first comic book movie bout, as Phoenix previously turned down the roles of Lex Luthor for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange.
