In July the Director of “the Joker” Todd Phillips has admitted that the plot of the upcoming film will be very different from the original comic book DC universe. “We wrote our own story about where he could take a guy like the Joker. That’s what interested me. It’s not so much a film about the Joker as story of transformation into the Joker. It’s about the person,” he explained and added that this idea would piss off the audience.
