Did you know that "Joker" is the first role of Joaquin Phoenix in a comic book film adaptation? Before the standalone DC motion picture, Phoenix first refused to play the role of Bruce Banner (a.k.a. the Hulk) in The Avengers in 2012, a role first portrayed by Edward Norton. Years after, he declined the titular role in the 2016 MCU film Doctor Strange. But, why did Joaquin Phoenix turned down those roles? It's easy to assume that he's not fond of Marvel superheroes. But that's not the reason behind it. According to IGN, several factors stalled the deal between Marvel Studios and the Oscar nominee. Some of those include the previs and fight-vis, as well as the involvement of green screens and a handful of reshoots that comes with the package of a Marvel picture. The Inherent Vice star also expressed that he doesn't know if he can work on such kind of movies.
So how come that a Joaquin Phoenix Joker film became possible? Well, there's one thing that separated the DC villain role from the superhero ones aforementioned. He has an interest in the idea of playing a character from a comic book without committing to further sequels. And for his transformation into Arthur Fleck, Phoenix actually loses 52 pounds. His next-level embodiment of the Clown Prince of Crime seems to have a great effect for the entirety of "Joker". The movie received an eight-minute standing ovation when it premiered in the 2019 Venice Film Festival. It even won the festival's highest prize, which is the Golden Lion. While the film is yet to be theatrically released until October of 2019, for sure there will be a lot of websites to watch Joker movie 2019 online. You can opt for that if you want to skip the ticketing queue. Will this be one of the best Joaquin Phoenix movies? Or is this just one of those overhyped films?
