And with that unlikely idea comes an unlikely casting fantasy in actor Joaquin Phoenix.
While not all that much is written in stone about the future of movies starring DC Comics characters at Warner Bros., one film that still has some forward momentum is the Joker standalone movie to be directed by Todd Phillips. In addition, the Joker origin story is reportedly set to fall under a new banner of DC features at Warner Bros. that are not connected to the DCEU continuity.
The most recent actor to take on the role, Jared Leto, is still considered likely to reprise his role in Suicide Squad 2. Heath Ledger set a perhaps unsurpassable bar for Joker performances in Christopher Nolan's trilogy, yet Phoenix is bound to have a compelling take on the role. Warner Bros. declined to comment.
It will be more like a "gritty crime drama" than a traditional comic book movie.

It's also said that Leonardo DiCaprio was courted for the Joker role, but that didn't pan out.
Scott Silver is joining Todd Phillips as a co-writer on the film, which will dive into the Joker's backstory and the circumstances that led him to become a mastermind criminal.
This is a case of third time's the charm for Phoenix who has turned down two previous comic book roles in the past. 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.
He was nearly Doctor Strange, to the point where there were rumors he was going to be announced at SDCC until both parties went other directions.
