JOKER movie rumoured to be “heartbreaking”

Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur/Joker

Those awesome guys and girls of Revenge of the Fans are back with another rumour. This time they are discussing Todd Phillips upcoming Joker solo movie.

According to insider info the movie, currently in the editing suite, is shaping up to be a “heartbreaking, pitiful tragedy.” That’s meant in a good way of course.

We fully expect this film to play on the audiences expectations of the character. Phillips will be trying his best to make us feel sympathy for the pitiful Arthur Fleck before turning him in to the Clown Prince of Crime.

Are you excited for Joker? We’d love to know your thoughts on the movie form what we’ve seen so far.

Joker centres around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

The film stars Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, also starring are Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.

Phillips directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with writer Scott Silver, based on characters from DC. The film is being produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. It is executive produced by Richard Baratta, Joseph Garner and Bruce Berman.

Joker will be released on October 4, 2019. For all our Joker coverage head to our archive!
