Joaquin Phoenix says his Joker film will be ‘unique’

Actor Joaquin Phoenix has revealed that his upcoming Joker film directed by Todd Phillips will be “unique”.

The 43-year-old actor, who recently signed on to appear in the untitled DC movie, said the film would not easily fit into any specific genre.

“I wouldn’t quite classify this as like any genre. I wouldn’t say it’s a superhero movie, or a studio movie. It feels unique, and I think more then anything, and probably the most important thing, is Todd seems very passionate about it and very giving, and so that’s exciting.

‘I think, underneath the excitement of these films, and the size of them, there are these incredible characters that are dealing with real life struggles. And sometimes that is uncovered and exposed, and sometimes it isn’t, and so I always felt, like, there were characters in comics that were really interesting and deserve the opportunity to be kind of studied. And so I think that’s what Todd sees appealing about this idea,” Phoenix told Collider.
