The DC Universe is looking forward to a new movie with the release of Joker. The movie is planned to be the first R-rated live-action Batman movie according to the film’s director. He announced this news in the comments of the below photo of Joaquin Phoenix in the Joker role.
The only other film in the DC Universe franchise to be R-rated was 2016’s animated movie Batman: The Killing Joke.
This movie tells the story of the Joker as a failed stand-up comedian who becomes a psychopathic criminal mastermind after going insane. If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, it’s pretty creepy…
Joker will be out on October 4th, just in time for Halloween!
