RUMOR – Phillips/Scorsese/Phoenix Joker Film To Begin Production In May


Via Jeff Sneider of THE TRACKING BOARD, WB’s non-canon “Joker origin film” is scheduled to begin production in May.  Here’s his tweet…


The details on this “Joker origin film” are few and far between.  And all we “know” is that it’s  apparently going to be “gritty” and set in the 1980s Gotham City.  It is also separate from the the DC film universe — meaning it’s not in the “same continuity/world” as, for example, WONDER WOMAN.

Martin Scorsese will produce with Todd Phillips directing and who co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Silver.
