It's official, Joaquin Phoenix to play The Joker in Origin film!

So many names these last two years but in the end Joaquin Phoenix will handle the role of The Joker in the new DCEU film which will start shooting in September.

Todd Phillips will co-write and Direct the film, and with only a budget of 55 million the rumor is that it will be unlike any other of the DC films we've seen as of late.

That's good news considering it's an origin take on The Clown Prince, so I'm guessing the movie will rest on an interesting story instead of explosions and special effects like other 100 million dollar hero movies.

It will be interesting to see how Phoenix will handle the role of The Joker.
