  • Joaquin Phoenix Joker

Co-writer and director Phillips recently revealed to Variety that vegan actor Joaquin Phoenix is the top contender to play the title role.

The proposed origin story will exist in a separate continuity strand to Suicide Squad and other DC Extended Universe films such as Justice League and Wonder Woman in a new series of standalone stories. Hence, it goes without saying that, in the event that Phoenix really top-bills the upcoming project, Jared Leto will still be the Joker in the DCEU brand, including in the upcoming "Suicide Squad 2".

Oxfam scandal widens as other abuse cases revealed
However, the minister said Oxfam did "absolutely the wrong thing" by not reporting the detail of the incidents to the government. The Charity Commission said on Saturday that it had written to Oxfam "as a matter of urgency" to request further information.

Warner Bros and DC are now in the initial stages of the spinoff which will tell the origin story of The Joker. Warner Bros. continues to develop a solo movie for The Joker, Batman and comicdom's greatest villain.

The Joker movie has been described as a gritty crime drama '80s film that will delve into what it took for the Joker to become a mastermind criminal. The Room director and The Disaster Artist subject Tommy Wiseau asked Phillips to DM him on Twitter yesterday evening regarding the role. He was also the prime choice of DC to play Lex Luthor in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, WB has not confirmed it as such, and there was once a time when Phoenix was in talks to play Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange, so don't take it as a done deal.

However, the Amazon Prime members will have to make sure that they make their orders between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. Prime members, who pay a $99 yearly subscription, may place their order via the Amazon website or the Prime Now app.

Apparently, Warner Bros. plans to "expand the canon of DC properties and create unique storylines with different actors playing the iconic characters".

Wiseau made the declaration on social media, retweeting a post from Variety that announced Phoenix's potential to portray the Joker.

The company did not answer the question about whether the immigration policies in the two countries influenced the decision. In the audience was a group of Midwest students and officials, some of whom are skeptical that trade would help them.

While studio negotiations haven't started yet, according to Variety, Phoenix was approached by Phillips late past year and early talks have already begun. Gus Van Sant's film "He Won't Get Far on Foot", about a man on the road to sobriety after a life-changing accident, was the most recent movie to feature Phoenix.
