Ever since the announcement of Warner Bros’ intentions to create a standalone origin film about the most famous Batman villain of all time, fans have been abuzz about who could potentially take on the icon role.
Well, as first reported by Variety, it looks like Joaquin Phoenix has entered early talks to portray the iconic clown prince of crime!
See a tweet from Fandango’s Erik Davis below:
Phoenix is famous for his standout roles in Walk The Line and Her and is widely considered one the greatest character actors by fans and his peers alike.
Take this with a grain of salt for now but this, at the very least, confirms that DC Entertainment and Warner Bros are actively at work trying to bring the origin of the mysterious Joker to life on the big screen.
