Joaquin Phoenix in Talks to Play the Joker in Todd Phillips’ Standalone Movie
quote:

Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to play the Clown Prince of Crime in Warner Bros. and Todd Phillips’ untitled Joker origin movie.

While studio negotiations are not yet underway, Phillips has made it clear that Phoenix is the top choice to star and sources now tell Variety that, after thinking it over, Phoenix has agreed to the role. WB had no comment.

Phillips is on board to co-write and direct the movie. Phillips had met with Phoenix before the new year and was just waiting for the studio’s go-ahead, sources say.

He’s thrown off enough to pull it off.

While I generally agree with this, I'd be very interested in Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker.

Years from now, people are going to be so confused about who is who in these multiple Batman movies. Which is the real Joker? I thought he fell off the bell tower. No? Then he was last seen hanging upsidedown after trying to blow up two boats. No? Then he left with that Harley chick. No?

After the Heath Ledger casting I'm not quick to judge anymore.

I think I'm more surprised about the Todd Phillips part than the Joaquin Phoenix part.

Sigh. More recycled, unoriginal content from Hollywood. That being said, Joaquin makes a solid choice.

I like Joaquin Phoenix and think he could be a decent Joker. Certainly better than Jared Leto.

And for the first time we have an actor who will have to tone down his level of insanity in order to play the Joker.

Good choice.

Don't know if he can pull it off but good choice.

If PSH was alive I think he could have been great at it.

He would be better Lex Luthor in BvS

But wtf there’s a stand-alone Joker movie?!!? So long as he doesn't pull a Jared Leto.

Joaquin is already nuttier than a squirrel turd, so this shouldnt be too difficult for him. “Hey Joaquin, go be yourself”
