Joaquin Phoenix's Joker Movie Gets Title & Release Date

Zazie Beetz Deadpool 2

Warner Bros. announced the movie will come to theaters October 4, 2019, and will be called simply "Joker".

But Phoenix is signed on, and he thinks the Joker "could be an interesting character" to play, according to a Fandango interview, while seeing this thing "as any other movie". The film will be directed by Todd Phillips from a script he wrote with Scott Silver.

The only DC-related movie I've been stoked about in, like, 20 years is about to get even better. Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy are reportedly where the project is drawing its inspiration from. Phoenix playing the Joker isn't any weirder than the time he pranked the world into thinking he retired from acting to become a rapper all for a documentary. Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger - who won an Oscar for his take in "The Dark Knight" - are among the many actors to bring the character to life.

Jared Leto's portrayal of The Joker in Suicide Squad was met with a lack of enthusiasm, but Joaquin Phoenix may be just the man to pull the Joker out of his slump.

Nokia 6.1 Plus India launch expected in September
Connectivity options on the phone include 4G-LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11a/c, GPS/A-GPS, GLONASS, Bluetooth , Micro-USB, and headphone jack. On account of its display, HMD Global is touting the Nokia 3 .1 as a multimedia phone at an affordable price point.

Beetz is also set to star in Season 3 of the hit FX show "Atlanta" as well as Steven Soderbergh's next film, "High Flying Bird".

Well, we did say Joker was being placed on the fast-track, and with filming set to commence in New York City this September, it won't be long before we catch a glimpse of Phoenix dressed as Gotham's worst nightmare.

Last month, Phoenix finalized his deal to star as the arch-nemesis of Batman.
