Warner Bros. teases “Joker” spin-off with Joaquin Phoenix starring as the Joker and it’s looking freaking awesome already!

First look of Warner Bros./DC’s of the Joker’s first solo movie is here. It shows Joaquin Phoenix without the Joker make-up and with the full make-up on. I’m already very impressed with it and now find this very intriguing!

They don’t show you what Joker’s laugh sounds like yet but I’m sure they will show us pretty soon. Will Joaquin’s Joker laugh be better than Mark Hamill’s? We’ll have to wait and see. I’m sure we’ll hear the new Joker laugh when the teaser trailer comes out.

So Joaquin Phoenix gets officially added to the list of other actors playing the Joker in live action films/TV: Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto, Cameron Monaghan and now Joaquin Phoenix is the latest Joker actor.

Who do I think played the best Joker? Well to me it’s a tie between Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson, of course. They were the best. Can Phoenix top ’em? We’ll have to wait and see the movie and see for ourselves.

Joaquin Phoenix will play the Joker in the Joker’s first standalone live-action film…

This is interesting. Joaquin Phoenix looks like he will be playing the Joker in the first ever Joker live-action movie which will be co-written and directed by Todd Phillips. Joaquin is not confirmed for the role yet but he is the top choice to play the Joker and he has agreed to the role. It will probably happen.

The idea for the movie that it will take place in the 80’s and it will be more of a gritty crime-drama than a typical superhero film.

I’m sure many are thinking Joaquin Phoenix is a terrible choice but honestly, I think he’s going to do a great job and knock it out of the park. Joaquin is a terrific actor… he’s one of my favorites actually. He has done so many phenomenal movies. Joaquin can play anything that throws at him.

I think Joaquin will play the Joker quite well… however, the question you all have to ask is… will Joaquin be able to do the Joker laugh? Joaquin will have to do that laugh for that movie and I think Joaquin will learn how and practice to get it right. I think Joaquin will do the Joker laugh quite well.

It would be cool if Mark Hamill would play a live-action Joker but it will never happen ’cause Hamill is 66 years old now. He’s too old to play the Joker in a live-action set. I may not like Hamill being anti-Trump but I still think he does a good job voicing the Joker, though, no doubt.

I’m glad Joker is finally getting his own movie too and hopefully Harley Quinn will be in it and she probably will be. Write Harley Quinn in the movie and I’m sure even more people would see it ’cause Harley Quinn is a very popular character.

It’s going to be interesting to see what Joaquin is going to look like in Joker make-up and in full costume. This is gonna be a Joker standalone film and origin story. I don’t think Batman will be in it at all, although, it’s possible that Batman will get mentioned in it.

The Joker is finally getting his own solo film by Warner Bros./DC… interesting…

The Joker who is obviously the most famous Batman villain is finally getting his own solo film brought to you by Warner Bros./DC. Todd Phillips the director of “The Hangover”trilogy is set to direct the solo Joker film.

The Joker has been played by many different actors over the years through animated movies and live-action movies. Most notably, the Joker has been played by Cesar Romero from the old TV show, Jack Nicholson in the 1989 “Batman” film by Tim Burton, Heath Ledger in 2008’s “The Dark Knight” and Mark Hamill voiced the character through animated films and video games.

As far as the new Joker goes, it makes a whole lot of sense to have a comedy director make the film ’cause the Joker is obviously about making jokes and stuff.

Who’s gonna be the new Joker? I hope they stay away from Jared Leto ’cause I never liked him as the Joker. They probably won’t pick any of the previous Jokers ’cause all the previous ones would be too old. Since this is an “origin” story, they’ll probably find someone young. Will they pick a big name actor or a total unknown? They’re probably gonna go for a big name, I bet. Will Harley Quinn be involved in the solo Joker movie? Probably. That Harley Quinn character is very popular and she’s probably gonna be featured in other films a lot more often. The Joker and Harley were important together so of course, she’s gonna be a part of the story for sure, no doubt.

I’m all for a solo Joker movie just as long as they don’t try to rip off Nicholson or Ledger.

Looking forward to seeing how this film is gonna go, though.
