Is Joaquin Phoenix's 'Joker' A Prequel To Robert Pattinson's Batman? © Shutterstock A new DC fan theory says Joaquin's Phoenix's Joker movie is actually a prequel to Robert Pattinson's Batman movie with a different Joker.

This week, in a new interview, Robert Pattinson made an off-hand comment that led a number of DC fans to believe that his Batman might share a universe with Joaquin Phoenix's Joker. The problem with that theory is the age difference between the two characters as established in the upcoming Joker movie. Phoenix's Joker takes place in the early '80s—meaning a modern day Batman would make Joker in at least his 60s. So, how exactly, could this work?

Joaquin Phoenix explains why he initially resisted Joker role

Joaquin Phoenix explains why he initially resisted Joker role "There was a lot of fear" Joaquin Phoenix may have dodged opportunities to play both Hulk and Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe , but a starring role as the Clown Prince of Crime finally managed to retain his interest in signing up for a comic book movie ...eventually. The actor says he hesitated at first when he was asked to play the Joker in Todd Phillips' upcoming standalone DC film featuring the iconic villain. "It took me a while [to commit]. Now, when I look back, I don’t understand why," he admitted to Total Film. "There was a lot of fear, yeah.

The Batman star Robert Pattinson drops a Joaquin Phoenix Joker spoiler in an interview, then retracts it - so what did he accidentally reveal? Pattinson ' s Batman and Phoenix ' s Joker appearing in a movie together either confirms The Batman exists outside the DCEU, or that Joker will somehow

Why would Robert Pattinson retract a comment about Joaquin Phoenix ? How would a crossover even happen? After all, Joker takes place in the 80 s while Pattinson ' s Batman is set in modern time. Many simply assumed that he may have wanted to retract the comment because speculations from

One Reddit fan has a pretty interesting theory for how Phoenix's Joker—or at least the idea of him—could appear in a film with Pattinson:

From what we see in the trailers for The Joker, Joaquin Phoenix's joker seems to be less of an evil murderous lunatic and more of a disruptive, revolution-causing agent of change. An agent of chaos, but chaotic good rather than chaotic evil. He is also, literally, a clown. We also see in the trailers that Bruce Wayne is just a child at this point. It will be at least 10 years until he becomes Batman (assuming he starts at the age of 18-20.). Joaquin Phoenix is 44 years old. His Joker is likely around the same age.

Robert Pattinson made a comment in a new interview that has fans thinking his Batman will cross over with Joaquin Phoenix ' s Joker . In one of his first interviews after accepting the bat role, Pattinson made a tiny slip-up that has fans thinking his Batman will share a universe with Phoenix ' s

"I think Joaquin Phoenix is playing the Joker in a standalone film, that will possibly wind up not being standalone as the situation evolved with the solo Batman movies and the future of the DCEU shapes up. I haven't heard anything firm, but I've heard certainly whispers from several people that I've talked

Is Joaquin Phoenix's 'Joker' A Prequel To Robert Pattinson's Batman? © Getty There's no way a 55-year old Joker could keep up physically with a Batman in his prime, and there is little indication that Joaquin Phoenix engages in physical violence in the movie, let alone organized crime. Also, in the latest trailer, protesters hold signs saying "We are all clowns", and that people other than Joaquin are wearing clown masks.

I believe that in the movie The Joker, Joaquin Phoenix's character will begin a huge social movement which will spiral out of control, bringing the corrupt and stagnant Gotham into a violent but equalizing upheaval. With Thomas Wayne as one of the figureheads of Gotham's establishment, I think that the murder of the Waynes will be an indirect consequence of this movement. Also, it will be a decentralized movement similar to Anonymous, with no leader or organization.

Is Joaquin Phoenix's 'Joker' A Prequel To Robert Pattinson's Batman? © Getty Thus "we are all clowns". Another bit of evidence for this is that Joaquin requests to be introduced on a talkshow as "Joker". He doesn't want his name to be known, but rather be known as the figurehead and icon of his movement A more direct consequence, though, will be that further down the line, a younger man who believes in chaos, violence, and anarchy will take up the mantle of "The Joker", using the old movement's name and imagery to make himself and his goals clear. This will be the Joker who Batman eventually fights.

Joaquin Phoenix looks absolutely amazing in the Joker Trailer. They seriously need to make him officially part of MCU. If Joker is as good as everyone things it will be then any actor they make Home > Society & Politics > Joaquin Phoenix ' Joker will eventually fight Robert Pattinson ' s Batman .

By Hollywood standards, Robert Pattinson has been around for what seems like a lifetime already. It' s been 14 years since Pattinson made his big-screen During his chat with Variety, Pattinson was said to have made a "mundane comment" about Joker star Joaquin Phoenix before "asking to retract it

It's a pretty interesting idea, making Phoenix's Joker into a sort of an evil Guy Fawkes movement rather than a full-fledged adversary for Pattinson's Batman. The only problem with this is that it would mean we'd have yet another Joker—literally our fifth in a decade. But, conceptually, it's a pretty cool opportunity to do something intelligent with whatever comes next.
