Joaquin Phoenix's Joker set to drive movie-goers insane in 2019

Warner making its presentation in Hall H on Saturday. Produced by Martin Scorsese and written by Phillips and Scott Silver (8 Mile), the project is rumored to explore The Joker's backstory as a failed comedian, in line with Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's acclaimed Batman: The Killing Joke. Murray Franklin appears to be the safe bet, given De Niro's attributes closely match a previous casting call that was put out before Warner Bros. issued the green light. It said the film, directed by Todd Phillips, is an "exploration of a man disregarded by society that is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale". The outlet notes that details are being kept under wraps but Beetz would play "a single mother who catches the interest of the man who will become the Clown Prince of Crime". The studio is also working on another Joker film that stars Jared Leto.

Expect the Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie to cackle all the way into theaters on October 4th, 2019.
