  1. For nearly twenty years, we’ve seen plenty of superhero origin stories make their way to the big screen. However, super-villain origins are a much rarer thing. Next year, director Todd Phillips aims to change that with Joker, an original, standalone look at the birth of one of the most iconic comic book villains ever created. Starring Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, along with Oscar winner and acting legend Robert de Niro, Deadpool 2’s Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp (Red Sparrow), Frances Conroy (American Horror Story, Castle Rock) and more, principal photography on the highly anticipated new movie has now begun. Joker promises to be a gritty character story and broader cautionary tale that strikes a different tone from DC’s other 2019 movies, Shazam and Wonder Woman 1984. Over the weekend, Phillips shared the first image from the production, a portrait shot of Phoenix in his pre-Joker guise. Phoenix’s character is named Arthur Fleck, a man utterly disregarded by society. However, other than that, we don't know a lot at this point. Phillips and his crew are being mum about story details, so we’ll have to wait until we’re a bit closer to release to learn more about what sets Arthur on his path to becoming the Clown Prince of Crime. (Though you're welcome to speculate all you'd like in the comments below.) The screenplay for Joker is co-written by Phillips (The Hangover trilogy) and writer Scott Silver (The Fighter), and based on characters from DC. It’s being produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. It's executive produced by Richard Baratta, Joseph Garner and Bruce Berman.
  2. Truly disappointed as I love Superman and was hoping for more of him soon. Guess that’s not happening. Someone royally fucked up here in the negotiations cause this is nothing but a PR mess now. Obviously the character is bigger then the actor but I don’t feel this was the right time to recast. It will be interesting to see how development moves along for super girl now.
  3. Ew usually drops first looks (pics)not trailers I think. Probably be the first official pics from the movie. Either way I’m excited to see what they show.
  4. I’m happy for him but I hope he does play Superman again. I’m disappointed for myself as I love Superman and wanted to see a mos2 sooner rather then later.
