It’s rarely a good thing to know too much about a villain, and that’s especially true when you’re dealing with a character who is made infinitely more interesting by having an uncertain past.

And now we know for sure that this won’t be one for the younger Batman fans out there. The filmmaker has confirmed that we’ll be seeing an R-rated Joker movie this fall. Read More »

Todd Phillips is jumping from the Joker to the Hulkster. The filmmaker is set to direct a Hulk Hogan biopic for Netflix, and he’s tagged Chris Hemsworth to play the part. I don’t think any of us thought we’d see the day where Chris Hemsworth starred as Hulk Hogan in a Netflix movie, but hey, the 21st century is weird as hell.

Joker Movie details

The Todd Phillips-directed, Joaquin Phoenix-starring Joker movie has gone from seeming like a terrible idea to a movie that might just work. It’s clear Phillips and company are going for a much different approach to the character than what we’re used to, and that might be enough to make the movie truly memorable. Phillips has also assembled a fantastic cast around Phoenix, including always-welcomed character actor Shea Whigham. In a new interview, Whigham revealed some details about his Joker character, and praised Phoenix’s performance.
