Earlier this week Joaquin Phoenix officially signed on to play The Joker in an origin movie that will be directed by The Hangover’s Todd Phillips. The movie will begin shooting in New York City this September, and now some interesting new details have surfaced.
According to Collider’s Jeff Sneider (formerly of Variety and The Wrap), Thomas Wayne has a “big role” in The Joker. The inclusion of Wayne means that his son Bruce Wayne definitely isn’t Batman yet, so don’t expect any cameos. He may not even be born yet depending on when the movie takes place.
The more news released about this film, the more interesting it gets.
