Phoenix comes to the role that was previously rumored to be Leonardo DiCaprio's. Warner Bros. continues to develop a solo movie for The Joker, Batman and comicdom's greatest villain. According to Variety's sources, the story will take place in the "80s and be less comic-movie and more "gritty crime drama".
Joaquin Phoenix was also up to play Lex Luthor in Batman vs. Superman and Doctor Strange for Marvel, but passed on those roles.
He was nearly Doctor Strange, to the point where there were rumors he was going to be announced at SDCC until both parties went other directions. Two different film Jokers is only a small step beyond that, and Phoenix would no doubt provide his own unique but twisted interpretation to go into a pantheon that already includes showstopping performances by Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger. It's now Phillips who is fighting to get the multiple Academy Award nominee onboard with the project with the studio heads at Warner Bros.
