Joaquin Phoenix is no stranger to playing the creepy bad guy, (Gladiator) and he's pretty damn good at it so my bet is that his Joker is going to do just fine at the box office. If you're wondering what happened to Jared Leto's Joker, he's still slated to get his own Joker movie. Last summer Warner Bros. announced that Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn would be getting a standalone movie and next up would be a Joker movie starring Jared Leto. WB, who is also releasing the Joaquin Phoenix Joker origin tale, explain that this one falls under a new origins banner that would be separate from the current cinematic DC universe. This new banner would allow multiple actors and versions based on the same character with no overlap.
Am I the only one still confused?
