‘Joker’ wins Best Film at the Venice Film Festival

Accepting the award, director Todd Phillips thanked Warner Bros and DC, "for stepping out of their comfort zone and taking such a bold swing on me and this movie", and his star, saying, "There is no movie without Joaquin Phoenix".
Though we are yet to find out if "JOKER" beats the "Avengers: Endgame" records, but given the appreciation and praises received for the former, "JOKER" is expected to break numerous box office records and turn out to be a highly successful film. Reeves' forthcoming Bat-movie is rumored to include a chunk of Batman's rogues' gallery, and it's possible the Joker might appear there - or, indeed, in any future Batman movies directed by Reeves - but if so, it will not be Phoenix's Joker (who, it's worth noting, would probably be over 70 years old based on the timeline established in Phillips' film). "There's also a book about political assassins that I thought was interesting, and breaks down the different types of personalities that do those sorts of things [I do in the film]". Why go through all the formality of signing on when the director is already begging you to play the part?
Phoenix was later joined on the red carpet for "Joker" by co-star De Niro. But that isn't the case with Phillips' Joker, which Phoenix has said presents the character as more relatable than ever before - for both good and bad reasons.
Phoenix lost the battle and gave in to Phillips' vision, losing 52 pounds to the play Arthur.

Seeing a multi-faceted Joker on the big screen is something new for fans. Phillips' exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
Time will ultimately tell, but it's looking like Joaquin Phoenix will be putting on a happy face come awards season, knowing that he delivered the best iteration of the Joker yet. Joaquin (then known as Leaf Phoenix) starred in Parenthood as a young teen in 1989, then took a break from acting, making his comeback in the 1995 Nicole Kidman film To Die For. "And he said, 'You're going to start acting again, this is what you're going to do'".
"There is no movie without Joaquin Phoenix". Joker is essentially an origin story for the titular character, but Phoenix tracks his descent into madness in grotesque, harrowing detail. Joker hits theaters on October 4th.
