American actor Joaquin Phoenix may play the villain the Joker in the new film superhero in the DC universe. He is already in talks with Warner Bros., reports Variety.
As the newspaper notes, the Director of the yet unnamed tape Todd Phillips says that the Phoenix is the main contender for this role. The Director met with the actor at the end of last year and waited to be settled in negotiations with the Studio.
According to insiders, Jared Leto, who played the Joker in “suicide Squad” remains in the DC universe, and the involvement of Phoenix does not affect a Summer job in this role in future films.
