Variety is reporting that Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to play The Joker in Todd Phillips’ still untitled Joker film for Warner Bros. and DC. Phoenix is apparently Phillips’ top choice for the role. Phillips will be directing the film and co-writing it with Scott Silver. Leonardo DiCaprio had been rumored for the role initially with Martin Scorsese producing it. The film is rumored to take place in the ’80s with a gritty feel to it.

Mark Reilly and John Rocha are here to give you their thoughts on this news. They break down if Phoenix is the right choice for this role and if he’ll actually see the project to its fruition. He was rumored to be in consideration for Lex Luthor in ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and also Doctor Strange before pulling out of consideration for both projects.
