Joaquin Phoenix is likely going to be the new Joker

Academy Award victor Jared Leto, who played the Joker in 2016's Suicide Squad and will reprise the role in a sequel and a spinoff alongside Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, was reportedly upset with Warner Bros. for seeking out other Jokers.

Joaquin Phoenix is reportedly gearing up to play The Joker in a new origin story for Warner Bros. While talks for this could definitely go through, Phillips has reportedly stated that Phillips wants Phoenix, and that Phoenix has agreed to the role.

Scott Silver will join Phillips as a co-writer on the film, which will delve into what it took for the Joker to become a mastermind criminal. Rumors circulated that Leonardo DiCaprio was the first person approached to star in Phillips' standalone film, though that didn't pan out. Meanwhile, Matt Reeves ("War for the Planet of the Apes") is still on board to direct a Batman solo movie that is involved in the larger DC extended universe. Warner Bros. has not set a release date.

Phoenix is one of the most talented actors working today and immediately brings a certain amount of intrigue to this wild idea.

It's instead to be a prequel, a Joker origin story that will supposedly be a gritty '80s crime film. As Christopher Nolan proved with his Dark Knight Trilogy, some DC characters have more than enough to them to hold up in their own universes. For his work as an actor, Phoenix has received a Grammy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and has three Academy Award and British Academy Film Award nominations. Phoenix has previously passed on playing both Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the titular role of Doctor Strange.
