“There’s Not One Green Screen” – The Joker Movie Liberates Itself By Being Independent From the Comics and DCEU

We already know that the Joker movie will be something else entirely from any other DC/comic book movie we’ve seen. We had previously reported that director Todd Phillips stated that they did not follow the comics for this movie.

“We didn’t follow anything from the comic-books, which people are gonna be mad about. We just wrote our own version of where a guy like Joker might come from. That’s what was interesting to me. We’re not even doing Joker, but the story of becoming Joker. It’s about this man.”

Twitter user Johnny Sobczak posted these excerpts from Empire magazine, diving further into what went into creating this story:

While it may make some viewers mad, I’m excited to see this film. From the trailer and behind the scene photos, it really does look like a story that we will be impressed by and left speechless from. The Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix; hits theaters October 4, 2019.
