"And so it just has happened that those things have never come together for a bigger movie but I'm not opposed to any genre or any size of film", Phoenix explained.

Joaquin Phoenix will play the Joker in an upcoming solo movie for the supervillain, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

Joaquin Phoenix is officially stepping into the purple suit of Batman's greatest foe.

"Warner Bros" DC label, outside of Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad, hit a wall with Justice League last fall which significantly under-performed making $657.9M. He co-wrote the script with Scott Silver (8 Mile).

Warner Bros.is yet to announce a release date for the film, but THR is reporting that filming is set to get underway in NY in September and that the movie could be ready for release in late 2019.

The new movie will find Phoenix following in the Joker footsteps of Jared Leto, Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson.

The film will also take place in the '80s and will not follow in the steps of a traditional comic-book movie, but appear more like a gritty crime drama, according to Variety.

The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros.

The studio has yet to lock down a release date for this Joker origin movie just yet, but it's expected that it could be released in late 2019, assuming everything stays on schedule.
