Joaquin Phoenix reportedly confirmed as Joker as the movie gets an official greenlight2 min read
The Todd Philip led project has been an intriguing topic for DC fans which invokes both excitement and curiosity. Capped to be shot on a 55 mil budget , the project has tried in rope in some big names ever from the start. The 43 year old American actor Joaquin Phoenix is one of those whose name has been involved with the project ever since the first. While there have been quite some controversies regarding the same with the actor himself confirming that he is not involved , THR now reports that the deal is sealed.
While a release date is due , it is reported that the previous report of Todd Philip’s Joker Origin Film starring Joaquin Phoenix as the clown prince of crime starting principal photography this September is true. Stated as a “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale” , the movie has pretty big shoes to fill in.
A very small section of people liked Jared Leto’s Joker and thus this performance will be evaluated with the extraordinary performance of Heath Ledger. But thankfully , if you have seen Phoenix in action , you know the actor has potential to make an unforgettable presence under a good script and direction. The upcoming few days should further lock down dates and venues for the project. For now , comment down below what you think about the project and follow us for more superhero updates.
