Business Insider reports that Joaquin Phoenix is officially stepping into the purple suit of Batman's greatest foe. Warner Bros. announced on Tuesday that Joaquin Phoenix finalized a deal to star in its Joker origin movie. The film will be directed by "The Hangover" director Todd Phillips. The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter. Variety originally reported in February that Phoenix was in talks for the role. Phoenix has big shoes to fill. Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger are among the many actors to bring the character to life. Ledger won an Oscar for his take in "The Dark Knight." The last to do so was Jared Leto in 2016 in "Suicide Squad" to less-than-stellar reviews. Phoenix's movie is getting fast-tracked and could even be ready for a 2019 releas. According to THR, the movie has a $55 million budget and will start filming in September in New York.
