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.
To me this is one of the best sketch that those mad men made.
Here’s a little teaser for Marvel’s and Joss Wheldon’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I’m all excited. No really I am.
