Report: Joaquin Phoenix In Talks To Play The Joker In Standalone Film

A Joker standalone film is in the works at Warner Bros., with Todd Phillips set to co-write and direct. According to Variety, “Phillips has made it clear that [Joaquin] Phoenix is the top choice to star”, adding that sources say that “after thinking it over, Phoenix has agreed to the role.” Variety also notes that “Jared Leto, who starred in Suicide Squad as the Joker is still on board as the character in the DC universe” and that this film with Joaquin Phoenix would have “no effect on what happens with Leto’s character in future DC films.”
