Phillips explains that the Joker's origin story is set to break all the rules and will be a far cry from previous story-lines.

Joker, directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover) is set in the 1980's and will introduce fans to when the infamous villain is still a struggling comedian known as Arthur Fleck. In both that story and this film, it looks like the Joker was a failed stand-up comic, and it was just a series of disgusting events that pushed him over the edge to become a villain. Well it looks like the Joker movie out later this year will have all original ideas and features.

"We didn't follow anything from the comic books, which people are going to be mad about". That's what was interesting to me.

In fact, director Todd Phillips recently admitted that he thinks some diehard fans may be upset with the final product, as it's not adhering to any sort of comic book lore. Now he's playing the opposite side of that dynamic - and even a bomb scare, which occurred on De Niro's first day of Joker shooting, when an explosive device was delivered to his production office in Manhattan, couldn't stop him joining the production. "We constantly thought, "God, imagine if Joaquin actually does this", the director said. Each has a different version of how The Joker came to be and why he does the things he does just as there have been so many iconic versions of Batman's greatest nemesis from the instantly recognisable Mark Hamill voiced Joker from "Batman: The Animated Series" to Jack Nicholson's Joker and Heath Ledger's version of him. You can see that below. And for Phillips and his creative team, there was only ever one pick as to who would portray this character: Three-time Oscar nominee Jaoquin Phoenix.

Joker also stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Marc Maron, Bill Camp, Glenn Fleshler, Shea Whigham, Brett Cullen, Douglas Hodge, and Josh Pais.

Joker, also starring Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro and Brian Tyree Henry, opens in Australia on October 3 and in the United States on October 4.
