Published

Barring the phenomenal Wonder Woman, most of the films in the Worlds of DC have been somewhat divisive. Warner Bros. have changed their tactics to making stand-alone movies focusing on individual characters, which seems like a good way to go. The Joker is one of the most recognizable characters in DC comics, and a solo movie delving into his backstory has been given the green light. Enter Oscar-nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix to play this fantastic character. Let’s find out what will be in store for us…

Outside of the Worlds of DC

With the Worlds of DC having only one real hit and several misses, the best decision would probably be to let creators tell stories without being bogged down by continuity. This is the direction that Todd Philips, the director and co-writer, is taking with this Joker movie. Joaquin Phoenix has stated that this movie will feel unique and will be in its own world. Next, we delve into the psychology of a madman…

Joker’s Sick Mind

Characters are the driving force of all fiction. Joaquin Phoenix has promised that this movie will be a character study of The Joker.

Zazie Beetz In Talks To Join The Cast

Zazie Beetz is a phenomenal actress perhaps best known her recent role as Domino in Deadpool 2. Now she might be joining the ranks of actors like Willem Defoe, who have switched teams from Marvel to DC properties. This is exciting news because she has proven that she can portray a character from a comic book with enough gravitas and energy. Now the big question: when is it coming out?

Offical Release Date Confirmed

Warner Bros. has confirmed that the release date for Joker will be October 4, 2019. With filming beginning in September, and a well-known actor like Joaquin Phoenix attached to play the main character, this is exciting news. Warner Bros. clearly has a lot of confidence in this movie, and that is reassuring. It would seem that The Joker is in good hands.
