Joker Origin Film Begins Production Soon

Joker Origin - DC Comics News

With restructuring taking place at WB after the disappointing box office of Justice League, many were left wondering what that meant for the previously announced projects. We are still waiting on a new and updated slate of films, but one film that seems to still be moving forward is the Joker origin standalone film.

The film is being produced by Martin Scorsese and directed by Todd Phillips. Recently the film made headlines when it was announced that Oscar-nominee Joaquin Phoenix was in talks to star in the film as the Joker himself.

Even though no casting have been made officially, it is now being reported that the film will begin production May 1, 2018. If that doesn’t change you can expect official casting announcements very soon.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
