The Joker movie has been a bit of an enigma amongst DC Comics fans, ever since it was first announced in September of past year. Now, Hollywood Reporter confirms that the movie has been green-lit and is a go. A recent article confirmed just as much, and that the label of standalone DC films could be dubbed "DC Dark" or "DC Black". The film will be produced by Emma Tillinger Koskoff and executive produced by Richard Baratta. Phoenix entered talks to take on the role this past February, but this was far from a done deal as the Oscar-nominated actor had previously been in prolonged talks to lead Marvel's Doctor Strange before ultimately backing out.

"I don't know...it could be an interesting character, I don't know", Phoenix told Fandango in April, adding that he wouldn't be opposed to comic book movies if the conditions were right.

Jared Leto, however, will be reprising his role as The Joker in the sequel for Suicide Squad and a movie on The Joker and Harley Quinn.

"I see it as any other movie", he said. If you have the ability to transcend the genre, then that's what you want to do.

Joaquin Phoenix will portray mad Batman villain the Joker in a new origin movie, following months of rumours about the project.

The standalone "Joker" feature will fall under a yet-to-be-announced banner of DC Comics, which gives the studio the opportunity to expand the canon of the iconic comic-book characters with unique story angles that aren't included in its current cinematic universe.
