Joker Origin Movie Starring Joaquin Phoenix Gets a Release Date & Title!

It's got a name ― "Joker" naturally ― and it's scheduled to open October 4, 2019, Warner Bros. announced Wednesday, per Deadline. The film will be directed by Todd Phillips from a script he wrote with Scott Silver. Martin Scorsese was once even attached to produce, and Warner Bros. was eyeing his frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio for the role.

Take this one with a pinch of salt for now, but Revenge of the Fans is reporting that the Joker origin movie has indeed carved out room for De Niro, but he won't be playing Carmine Falcone as initially rumored.

Plans for the movie on Batman's ultimate nemesis with a twisted sense of humour had already been announced earlier this month.
