  • Phoenix hails'greatest role as'Joker hits Toronto

If you're looking for some sort of dark, depressing, psychologically taut new DC cinematic universe to be built around Joaquin Pheonix's upcoming turn as Joker in Joker and Robert Pattinson's take on Batman - you're out of luck.

Joker director Todd Phillips shut down that notion and says it will never happen.

"The first thing was the weight loss, that's really what I started with", Phoenix told Entertainment Tonight Canada.

Joker recently won the top prize at the Venice Film Festival, yet is also generating some controversy.

The director further added that there will be a chance for Pattinson's Batman to cross paths with the Joker - but it probably won't be the one played by Phoenix.

"I think he should be kind of heavy", Phoenix said.

Some movies just want to watch the world burn. He wasn't kidding: Joker ventures to some disturbing places in its presentation of the origin story for this particular Joker, amateur clown and would-be comedian Arthur Fleck. "Definitely not", according to Phillips. "He was not keen on jumping into costume in any comic-book movie", Phillips said. The movie has been rated R for elements including bloody violence and disturbing behavior, very much making it in line with the more dastardly version of the Joker seen in most iterations of the character.

Phoenix explained that "It wasn't an easy decision, but [Phillips] kept saying, 'Let's just be bold". "I didn't f**king know". But then there was something that was drawing me toward it... "It was one of the greatest experiences of my career", he shared. Though many people may go to see and focus on "It: Chapter Two", the movie "Joker" will soon arrive to movie theaters on October 4, 2019. As for Pattinson's Batman movie, the Matt Reeves-directed film is scheduled to come to cinemas in 2021.

This falls in line with Warner Bros.' recent superhero movie strategy of focusing on standalone stories rather than a connected universe.

Business Insider's Jason Guerrasio wrote in his review of "Joker" that it's an "ultra-violent drama that takes heavy influence from movies like Martin Scorsese's "The King of Comedy" and 'Taxi Driver.'" Phillips has said "we didn't follow anything from the comic books".
