Joaquin Phoenix – ‘Todd Phillips’ Untitled Joker Film’ (2019)

Triple Oscar-nominee Joaquin Phoenix is entering the comic book world for the first time playing the DC villain. This film is set in an alternate movie timeline to the one occupied by Jared Leto’s Joker, and directed by The Hangover’s Todd Phillips (Instagram)
