Robert De Niro In Talks For Joker Origins Film

Martin Scorsese has been an executive producer on Todd PhillipsJoker since it was announced last year. While this is the filmmaker’s first superhero film, Warner Bros.’ vision for the character is what attracted Scorsese to the project. According to previous reports, WB is planning to expand the DC universe with new and unique storylines that aren’t a part of the current DC Extended Universe. Phillips says the film will be a gritty and hard-boiled crime drama in the same vein as Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and The King of Comedy.

Now we are getting to see how much of an influence Scorsese is having on the film. According to new reports Robert De Niro, who starred in all three of the aforementioned influences, and Frances Conroy, who starred in The Aviator, are currently in talks to join titular star Joaquin Phoenix and recently reported Deadpool 2 star Zazie Beetz on the cast of the new the origins film. More on the story below.

Suicide Squad Jared Leto as The Joker header image

It’s no surprise that Jared Leto‘s Joker in Suicide Squad was one of the most interesting takes on the character. It wasn’t like the comic books or the dark and grungy Joker. And that is one thing you have to respect in David Ayer’s film. But it also wasn’t a well-received character.

That being said, he is a part of the DCEU now. And for those who have been dying to know if he would get his own film, well, the studio has answered that question. New reports are saying WB is putting a Joker movie into development with Leto starring and executive producing. More on the story below.

Tommy Wiseau As Joker

It looks like Joaquin Phoenix will be playing Batman villain the Joker in the upcoming origins movie being directed by Todd Phillips. One person we know won’t be taking on the role, should a deal with Phoenix not be worked out, is The Room writer, director, producer, and star Tommy Wiseau.

But that doesn’t mean Wiseau doesn’t think he’s the man for the job. He’s tweeted about wanting to play Joker in the past, and now he’s made his very own audition tape to show how he’d do. He even got The Room co-star and The Disaster Artist author Greg Sestero to stand in as Batman for the video, which you can check out below.

Joker Origins Film To Pull From ‘Batman: The Killing Joke’

The Killing Joke

The history of the Joker is never told the same way, but there is one arc fans refer to as the definitive backstory for the Clown Prince of Crime, Batman: The Killing Joke. So it should come as no surprise that director Todd Philips would want to look at it for his Joker origins film.

A new report says Phillips will be drawing some inspiration from The Killing Joke, in which a failed comedian falls into a vat of acid bleaching his skin and warping his mind, for the still untitled Joker origins film. More on the story below.

Joaquin Phoenix in Inherent Vice

Warner Bros. is continuing to develop their DC film slate in the most interesting of ways. In addition to the number of DCEU films currently in development, they have launched a new series of films that are not set in the DCEU. These standalone films will be much darker takes on the characters involved. And it all starts with an untitled Joker origins film.

Written and directed by Todd Phillips, the film will be separate from the other DCEU films. The project was first announced late last summer. Jared Leto is still signed on to play the Clown Prince of Crime, having first appeared in Suicide Squad, and is expected to reprise his role in the Joker and Harley Quinn spinoff and other DCEU related titles. However, the plan for this movie was to cast someone else in the role. And now it looks like the director has found his actor. According to new reports, Joaquin Phoenix is close to inking a deal that will see him become the Joker.

Comic Review: Batman: White Knight #1

Batman: White Knight #1 review

Batman: White Knight #1
Batman created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger
Script, art, covers by Sean Murphy
Colors and cover colors by Matt Hollingsworth
Letters by Todd Klein
Asst. Editor: Maggie Howell
Editor: Mark Doyle
DC Comics
Release date: October 4, 2017
Price: $3.99

First, I’ll state the obvious: Batman: White Knight #1 looks spectacular.

Sean Murphy‘s style is tailor made for Gotham City and its inhabitants. In the action-adventure series Chrononauts, he showed his range, packing each frame with so much kinetic energy it burst at the seams — but it’s in the shadows where Murphy shines brightest. He was born to illustrate Batman.

At the moment there are a handful of artists at the top of the food chain — Adam Hughes, Greg Capullo, Rafael Albuquerque — and Murphy is among the very best. Not to be overlooked, Matt Hollingsworth adds a pitch-perfect color palate to offset Murphy’s darkness, and the results are stunning.

WB Looking At Leonardo DiCaprio To Play Joker

“You had my curiosity, but now you have my attention.” That Leonardo DiCaprio quote could be applied to the Joker origins film we found out about recently. When it was announced, I was curious at how a film that is separate from the DCEU could work. And did anyone really need a Joker film.

But now comes word that Warner Bros. is actually looking at DiCaprio to potentially fill the lead role. Considering that Martin Scorsese is producing, and the actor has appeared in five of his films, this couldn’t be a more perfect pairing. More on the story below.
