Variety says that Phoenix met with The Joker director/writer Todd Phillips and got a verbal confirmation that he wants the role. Initial reports indicated that Phillips movie would be executive produced by Martin Scorsese.
According to the outlet, negotiations have not yet begun between the actor's camp and the studio, but Phillips has anointed him as the top choice. Instead, Warner Bros.is aiming to create a new imprint to tell stories of other characters in the DC canon, separate from any of their existing cinematic universes.
It's still widely believed that Jared Leto will continue to play the DCEU Joker and that this Joker movie would stand apart and that's no bad thing.
As well, DC is already conditioning even casual fans to accept that there can be more than one version of the same character between TV and movies, as it's done with Barry Allen/The Flash.
It's further said that after thinking it over, Joaquin Phoenix has agreed to play the Joker role.
The role would not be connected with the current DC Extended Universe.
Thinking long-term, this could be the move that finally puts DC ahead of Marvel.
It will be more like a "gritty crime drama" than a traditional comic book movie. Leonardo Dicaprio was the first person approached to star in Phillip's standalone film, but that didn't pan out.
This is a case of third time's the charm for Phoenix who has turned down two previous comic book roles in the past.
Phoenix is one of the most talented actors working today and immediately brings a certain amount of intrigue to this wild idea. Phoenix has previously passed on playing both Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the titular role of Doctor Strange.
