In Case You Were Wondering, Joaquin Phoenix's JOKER "Definitely" Won't Meet Robert Pattinson's Batman
We’ve been told time and time again that director Todd Phillips’ Joker is a standalone film not connected to any of the other DC movies. However, I’ve seen a lot of fans on social media wondering if the movie will connect with director Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
Common sense says that will not happen, but in case anyone needs hard confirmation, Phillips was asked by Variety if Joaquin Phoenix's Joker would eventually come face to face with Robert Pattinson's Batman. His answer was short and to the point:
"No, definitely not."
So, there you have it. That discussion can no be put to rest. Phillips went on to explain again that there will be more versions of The Joker in the future:
“Oddly, in the states, comic books are our Shakespeare it seems, and you can do many many versions of “Hamlet. There will be many more jokers, I’m sure, in the future.”
Joker just took home the top prize at the Venice Film Festival. Audiences and critics are loving and praising the movie. I’m excited to see it for myself, and I imagine this is going to be a one and done kind of film, which is perfectly fine. It doesn’t need to connect to anything else for it to be good.
