Todd Phillips doesn't expect Phoenix's Joker to meet Pattinson's Batman

Joker 2019 Review Joker 2019 Review

The film traces Arthur Fleck's journey from lonely, misunderstood, mentally ill outsider to a domestic terrorist. The first trailer shows Arthur Fleck a struggling and depressed stand-up comedian and amateur clown living in Gotham City. Strong notices came from the likes of The Guardian and Variety, while a few other major publications panned the film. You can check out all of the officially released stills from Joker in the gallery below! She previously talked about the movie's take on the villainous character. "Joaquin Phoenix is astounding - the physicality of his work is especially impressive", Nemiroff wrote. It's also rumored to be the first part of a new Batman trilogy.

Jack Napier was the name of the man who eventually broke bad and became the Joker in Tim Burton's 1989 adaptation of Batman - which was considered the defining iteration of Batman films prior to the release of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.

Awards season has officially begun, and Joker, the origin story of the famous Batman villain, is getting early Oscar buzz. Positioned as a sort of original "incel", Phillips' Joker could end up being a cautionary tale for our modern times - and Phoenix is contributing to that as well.

Meryl Streep was joined on the red carpet by Antonio Banderas and Gary Oldman, who play the heads of the shady Panama law firm at the heart of the scandal, after it was exposed in 2016 for aiding tax evasion among the wealthy elite. It longed seem like the acclaimed actor would never play a comic book character until he finally relented to join director Todd Phillips' Joker.

Joker subsequently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday night and at both screenings, the movie was met with praise from critics. He wants to make an elevated comic-book movie, and Warner Bros. clearly wants that too, but that's not what they got.

Almost of the early reviews for Joker have been complete raves, with critics saying that Phillips and Phoenix have reinvented not just the Joker, but also superhero movies in general - an accolade once bestowed on Nolan upon The Dark Knight's release. According to film insider Daniel Richtman, Matt Reeves' The Batman will revolve around a case Bruce Wayne will be seen investigating. The original standalone story of the most fierce and iconic villain will crash the theatres with the audience going insane for Joaquin Phoenix, in and as "JOKER" on October 4th.
