Rumors claim that the "You Were Never Here" actor will be playing Joker in the DC villain's origin movie. According to Variety, Phillips' movie would fall under "a yet-to-be-announced new banner of DC Comics", completely separate from the current DC comic stories, leaving Leto to reprise his Joker in the upcoming "Suicide Squad 2".
According to insiders, fellow vegan actor Jared Leto, who starred as the Joker in 2017's "Suicide Squad" has also been seriously considered for the part but sources say he is no longer in the running. Currently, the team is awaiting Warner Bros.' official confirmation before commencing studio negotiation.
The latest juicy tidbit comes out of Variety, which reports that Phoenix is director Todd Phillips' first choice for the role of the Joker, and that after some talks, Phoenix has tenatively agreed to star in the film as the Clown Prince of Crime.
Sources have indicated that the film will have the feel of a gritty crime drama rather than a conventional comic book movie. And one that looks poised to star Joaquin Phoenix, one of the most enigmatic but fascinating character actors working today.
Phoenix has been considered for another villainous DC role in the past: Lex Luthor in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", but passed on that role, which ultimately went to Jesse Eisenberg. He was asked by Marvel to play the Hulk in The Avengers and was approached again for the titular role of Doctor Strange. He urged director Phillips to contact him, writing, "Todd".
Phoenix has been the top choice to take on other superhero roles before, but has been resistant to joining any major studio blockbuster.
Phillips' film, which he co-wrote with The Fighter and The Finest Hours scribe Scott Silver, is said to chronicle the Joker's early days as he rises to power as a criminal roaming and ruling the streets in the 1980s.
