Standalone Joker movie with Jared Leto

We don't need either of these! No one even liked the Jared Joker. I'm glad to see no script or director. Chances are this doesn't even happen.

I saw there was a new post in this thread from Blue Jackets and was hoping it would be news that this project was scrapped.

That's a win for everyone. Unfortunately, I'm sure they will do their best to continue shitting all over the DC universe.

Joaquin Phoenix's 'Joker' Origin Movie Receives October 4, 2019 Release Date
I heard somewhere that the budget for this is tiny, maybe they will make it R rated if it's cheap to produce?

This is the Joaquin Phoenix one

Does this mean they will have a young Bruce Wayne and/or different Batman?

The film reportedly is re-imagining the Wayne patriarch as a “cheesy and tanned businessman who is more in the mold of a 1980s Donald Trump” instead of how he’s traditionally portrayed as a warm-hearted billionaire philanthropist intent on bettering Gotham City before he’s cruelly gunned down by a mugger in front of his young son.

Interesting take. Baldwin seems to make a point of saying this is the reason he turned down the role, even though he's played a Trump charicature on SNL many times.

So he was typecast because of his SNL role. Also, that sounds awful.

Yeah, I thought the whole point of Batman being a good guy was that he got his sense of wanting to help his city from his dad. I guess I could see them doing this whole movie from the Joker's perspective so maybe it's not really the reality, but rather the way the Joke sees these rich people. Either way, I don't have any confidence that this movie will be good.

His tweet regarding the reports that Thomas Wayne was going to be played as a Trump-esque businessman:

Let me state, for the record, that I have NOT been hired to play a role in Todd Phillips’ JOKER as some Donald Trump manque. That is not happening.
Not.
Happening.


And then shortly after this, it's announced that he's dropped out of the project entirely.
