Are you down with Beetz alongside Phoenix in Joker? That is, if it keeps that release date! Details behind the film's plot are being kept under wraps, but the trade mentions that the role Beetz is circling is that of "a single mother who catches the eye" of the Clown Prince of Crime. That's all of the information that has been released at this time.

The Joaquin Phoenix helmed Joker movie had been given the working title Romeo.

Now, Consequence Of Sound reports that the origin movie has a name.

Joker begins filming this fall in NY and arrives in theaters on October 4, 2019.

"Under the direction of Todd Phillips, the film centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen". Hey, if you're gonna do that, then Joaquin Phoenix is the flawless man to play the role.

When is the Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie out in cinemas? Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, and Jared Leto have all played the Clown Prince of Crime in the span of almost 30 years.

Joker is being directed by serious crime auteur Martin Scorcese, promising DC Comics fans a much darker adaptation of their favourite painted-faced villain.

Its budget is in the $55 million range, significantly lower than the tentpoles that dominate the form, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He was more of a hipster-looking character with tattoos and gold teeth, as opposed to the utterly unhinged version that Heath Ledger played and the semi-campy version that Jack Nicholson did.
