Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Is Already Better Than Jared Leto’s Clown Prince

WARNER BROS

I suggest you actually check that film out before Joker, so you'll have a nice feel of what we could expect from this upcoming movie.

Joker writer and director Todd Phillips has said that his version of the clown prince of crime does not follow any established elements from the DC comics, and that Joaquin Phoenix's character is a unique, original interpretation. The actor clearly saw something he liked and dug the script enough to sign on for Joker, which is a comic book-inspired movie and not a genre Robert De Niro generally finds himself in.

Empire also published a new photo of Joaquin Phoenix, in which he can be seen applying his Joker makeup. He went on to describe the film as "our own version" of the character, explaining that it wasn't really a Joker film so much as a film about a man becoming the Joker.

The comic told of an aspiring comedian whose dealings with the mob go south after which he is dropped into a Value-Added Tax of chemicals by Batman.

In The Killing Joke, the Joker says "If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!"

"I thank God no one's been hurt, and I thank the courageous and resourceful security and law enforcement people for protecting us", De Niro said in his statement. Francis Conroy will play the position of mom of Arthur i.e Penny Fleck.

The film follows the origin of Batman's most notorious enemy as he transforms from a struggling stand-up comedian to a full-blown criminal.

Now that " Spider-Man: Far From Home" has opened in theaters to big box office numbers, only one major superhero tentpole remains in 2019: " Joker".
