So there you go folks this is the first image from director Todd Phillips upcoming, as-yet-untitled Joker origin film. The photo is of Joaquin Phoenix before he becomes the Joker.
The caption on the picture simple says “Arthur”. The film is an “exploration of a man disregarded by society that is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.” Scott Silver co-wrote the script with Phillips.
According to Variety, Robert De Niro is reported to be in talks to be joining the film. De Niro is reported to be playing a talk show host that help in driving “Arthur” mad and become the Joker. The movie also stars Zazie Beetz and Marc Maron.
Warner Bros. is stressing that the film is a stand alone movie and will not effect its DCU. Jared Leto is working on an stand alone film that will be connected to the DCU.
In August Joaquin was qoutoed saying to IndieWire, “”I don’t really think that much about what people think, “Who cares, who cares?”
That is fine Joaquin. I am one of a few that don’t care about your version of The Joker. It is not that I think your performance will be any good. The reason is simply that I like my Joker mysterious. Not knowing who The Joker is one of the many things that make The Joker the most interesting and scary characters created.

Like many fans, we’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Man Of Steel since it was announced a few years ago. Taking inspiration from diehard fans who created unofficial title sequences for films such as Adventures of Tintin and X-Men: First Class, we wanted to see how far we could go with this same idea. The result is a passion project – the culmination of many long nights and weekends over the past three months.
The excerpt above is from Will&Tale blog. The people behind this impressive piece. Created using original material and original score this opening sequence shows great detail by fans that love the big blue boy scout. No need to see the opening sequence in Zach Znyder’s Man Of Steel, just roll the movie because we have a great one already done.
