Joaquin Phoenix has been wanting to do this joker movie for years
From the outset, it would appear as though Joker was pushed into production the second the public realized how bad Suicide Squad was, but apparently, Joaquin Phoenix has always wanted to play this part, or at least, something similar.
Three or four years ago, Joaquin Phoenix called his agent and said ‘Why don’t they want to take one of these characters and just make a lower budget film about it, a movie but a character study, and why not take one of the villains? And I thought, ‘You can’t do the Joker, because, you know, it’s just you can’t do that character, it’s just been done.’ So I was trying to think of other characters, and he said ‘I’ll set up a general meeting with Warner Bros.’ And I said ‘I’m not gonna go, I can’t go to a general meeting.’ So I completely forgot about it, and so then I heard about this idea, I was like, ‘Oh that’s so exciting, that’s the kind of experience I wanted to have, with a movie based on a comic character.’ I felt like you could get something on screen.
What do you think? I may see the film, although I’m a little tired of all these reboots.
