Joaquin Phoenix lately debunked hypothesis that Arthur Fleck is the predecessor to his universe’s model of the Joker and never the true deal.

Fans have speculated that Joker protagonist Arthur Fleck will not be the precise Joker, however the man who will encourage the Joker, because the venture was introduced. After all, the character is finest recognized for not having a clearly-defined previous past falling right into a vat of chemical substances after a run-in with Batman, whereas the film goes into painstaking element about what it took to show an outcast into Gotham’s most notorious prison (and Bruce Wayne isn’t even on the trail to turn into Batman on the time that the film begins).

Well, Phoenix doesn’t actually see issues that approach. His response to a query from The LA Times about whether or not or not Arthur Fleck is the Joker was fairly clear:

“I mean, to me, yes, he is [the Joker].”

Even so, Phoenix will not be against the concept that there could possibly be extra to this story than the film’s cut-and-dry method. He defined that, regardless that he didn’t consider that line of hypothesis, he nonetheless welcomes it:

“There was something that was great about the mystery of it. Todd and I talked a lot about how this is one of the few opportunities that you have where people don’t expect to know the definitive truth of the character — and not only that, they probably don’t want it. Usually the demands of the movie are the opposite. I said, ‘We have to take advantage of that. Why would we not?’”

With Joker having a shot at a billion {dollars}, and Phoenix — who has by no means achieved a sequel to one in every of his motion pictures earlier than — now open to the concept of doing one other film with this character, it looks like there’s an actual likelihood {that a} sequel may really occur. For now, Joker doesn’t current any argument in opposition to the concept of Arthur Fleck being the “real” Joker, so it’s secure to say that Phoenix has obtained the final chortle.

Here is the official synopsis for Joker:

Director Todd Phillips’ Joker facilities across the iconic arch nemesis and is an authentic, standalone fictional story not seen earlier than on the large display screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who’s indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a person struggling to seek out his approach in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comedian at night time…however finds the joke at all times appears to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one unhealthy choice that brings a few chain response of escalating occasions on this gritty character research.

Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham. The film will not be a part of the DC Extended Universe, and appears to play into Warner Bros.’s pursuits of creating creator-driven superhero motion pictures over essentially constructing a hyper-connected shared universe… At least in the interim.

Joker is now taking part in in theaters. Stay tuned for the most recent information on the Joaquin Phoenix film!
