Joaquin Phoenix Confirmed to Play The Joker In New Origin Film

Joaquin Phoenix Joker Movie Actor Says New Project Scares Him

Philips directed "The Hangover" trilogy and "War Dogs", and Phoenix told Collider that working with him on the Joker's origin film "scares" him. Speaking to Collider, Phoenix revealed it took him a lot of time to decide whether or not he should take on the role.

In an answer to another question, Phoenix hinted that the Todd Phillips directorial would be a character study, and less of a comic-book action flick that routinely come out of Marvel and DC's own stables.

No projected release date for the untitled Joker film has been announced. I think he's very impressive and he seems to have a very interesting understanding of this world and what he's trying to say. Perhaps, but it illustrates that the project isn't afraid to mess around with the mythos at the very least. "It might as well be the thing that scares you the most", said the actor. They also speculate if the movie might suffer if there is no Batman character or if maybe the film might thrive because there is no Batman in it. Let us know what you thought about what Joaquin Phoenix has to say about his standalone Joker film in the COMMENTS section below. "I wouldn't quite classify this as any genre", he said.

Phoenix concluded by emphasizing that Phillips' Joker movie wasn't a "superhero movie, or a studio movie", but something far more "unique". It feels unique, and I think more than anything, and probably the most important thing, is Todd seems very passionate about it and very giving, and so that's exciting.

Ironically, he also discussed how he thought the Joker would not be the right character for this concept, as this character study has been done before for the popular villain and it wouldn't be right to revisit it. Phoenix also described his feelings on the expectations coming from the role, saying he always feels anxiety when he takes on a role from a writer/director for fear he might not have met their expectations. "I do know that one character who has a big role in this is Thomas Wayne".

As it turns out, Joaquin Phoenix doesn't have the best poker face after all.

It's unclear whether the film will have any connection to any other Warner Bros.

One of the more interesting parts of the new interview was Joaquin Phoenix stating that he actually had an idea about making a project like the Joker Origin movie a few years ago, but said that he never once considered the Joker because it had been done before.

"It's a magnified version of what you deal with as an actor". Under Todd Phillips' direction, will the Academy Award-nominated actor bring a level of gravitas to the most iconic comic book villain of all-time that hasn't been seen in almost a decade? "I felt like you could get something on screen".
