Award-winning 'Joker' premieres at Toronto Film Festival

Joker: plot, cast, music, trailer and release date

However, while appearing at the Toronto Film Festival, Joker director Todd Phillips shoots down any thought that the Robert Pattinson Batman and the Joaquin Phoenix Joker will meet up or are in possibly the same universe. It won top prize at the Venice Film Festival. Phillips's comments seemed aimed at speculation that Phoenix's Joker would eventually run into Pattinson's Batman on the big screen.

Some movies just want to watch the world burn. In fact, when conceiving of his personal Joker, the film's Arthur Fleck, he had a totally different vision for the character's build.

"I don't see it ['Joker'] connecting to anything in the future", Phillips said.

"Oddly, in the states, comic books are our Shakespeare it seems, and you can do many many versions of Hamlet", Phillips said. Directed by Todd Phillips, who is known for other comedic films like The Hangover, it tells the origin of the Joker character in the Batman series.

Also in the Variety interview, Phoenix revealed that he was initially apprehensive about playing Joker.

After being shown a montage of clips from his career, the actor - who has been Oscar-nominated for previous roles in Walk The Line, The Master and Gladiator - paid tribute to his family's impact on his career. But then there was something that was drawing me toward it... Now, we have to wait for just a little more than a couple of weeks to discover whether we put hope in the right place or not. "But I don't know if it's as much - is it empathy for that or is it an observation on personalities who struggle". Though many people may go to see and focus on "It: Chapter Two", the movie "Joker" will soon arrive to movie theaters on October 4, 2019. Even Matt Reeves' The Batman, in which Pattinson has recently been cast as the Caped Crusader, is reportedly aiming to be as singularly standalone as possible.

At the same time, don't confuse those references as larger attempts to sync Joker up with the rest of the DC Extended Universe. "It might make you uncomfortable, and it will no doubt stay with you long after the curtains close; great movies often do", reviewer Michael Rougeau said.
