The latest 2019 film based on superheroes (DC or Marvel), will be very different from the comics according to Todd Philips.
It will be the last. The last great superhero movie of this 2019 with respect to DC and Marvel. And for that reason, it is expected that I cope with a large part of the news in the coming days. We are talking about the new movie of the Joker, which according to Todd Phillips, will be very different from comics.
So, the director of this film that will arrive next October to the halls of our cinemas, has confirmed that apart from the R rating he will receive, he will not be inspired by any comics. Not the least, in fact. We'll see if that is a reason or not controversial for the fans, but of course, the cards are on the table.
Something that we have been able to know thanks to the interview that the director has made for Empire magazine. According to him, the plot will be completely original, from start to finish. This is what he has said about it:
"We do not follow any of the comics, with which people go crazy, we just wrote our own version of where a guy like Joker could come in. That's what I was interested in. We're not even doing Joker, but the story of becoming in Joker, it's about this man. "
In addition, although we can already get an idea of how well Joaquin Phoenix will do (for the trailer, which you can see above, for example), Phillips has also used the interview to talk about the actor's performance in his role as Joker. This is what he has said about it:
"I think he's the best actor possible, we had a picture of him on our computer while we were writing, we constantly thought, 'God, imagine if Joaquin really does this.' And what do you think? Do you like the idea of making a totally new version of the character?
