Variety originally reported in February that Phoenix was in talks for the role.

There's no projected release date for Phoenix's Joker movie. The film will reportedly deal with what it takes for a character like The Joker to fall into madness and become a master criminal.

Reports suggest that this will be quite a low budget movie too, with a price around the $50-60m mark. A recent article confirmed just as much, and that the label of standalone DC films could be dubbed "DC Dark" or "DC Black". The film will be produced by Emma Tillinger Koskoff and executive produced by Richard Baratta and begins production later this year. Phoenix had been rumored to have the lead role for months, but played coy about whether or not he was aware of the part. "I typically make films that are maybe more independent, that's where I've found the most interesting characters and the things I want to pursue, but I'm not opposed to any film". I don't really care about the genre, I care about the character and the filmmaker.

Many have pointed to The Killing Joke as the basis for the film's origin story, but that seems to be questionable.

Joaquin's Joker film could be released as early as 2019. According to insiders, the Oscar-winner will not only will be back for the "Suicide Squad" sequel, Warner Bros.is also developing his own standalone movie that will be separate from Phoenix's Joker project.
