Will it be The Joker narrating his own origin to the camera, giving Phoenix most of the film to play outside of any makeup and create a dramatic story that won't feature any insane plots or superhero setpieces?
Official plot details are still under wraps but the Joker origin film is to be a gritty and grounded crime film set in 1980s Gotham City, separate from DC's current shared cinematic universe in an effort to create new and unique storylines as the studio expands DC canon. The Warner Bros. movie reportedly has a budget of only around $55 million, which is well below what other Warner Bros. superhero and villain movies have cost to produce.
Phillips ("The Hangover" franchise) is on board to co-write and direct the movie.
