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].

In fact, Joaquin was left more or less speechless by the question, reportedly muttering “why would you..?” before “walking out of the door”.

Joaquin Phoenix discusses preparing for role in ‘Joker’

Joaquin Phoenix discusses preparing for role in ‘Joker’ VENICE, Italy - Joaquin Phoenix is having a hard time defining the Joker, but then again, he doesn’t really want to. The actor spent eight months exploring how a struggling stand-up comedian named Arthur Fleck becomes Batman’s antagonist, the villain with a chilling laugh and a love of chaos. Preparing for the role involved losing quite a bit of weight, studying personality disorders and practicing the laugh over and over again. “(It’s) very difficult to distill into a soundbite,” Phoenix said Saturday in advance of the world premiere of “Joker” at the Venice International Film Festival.

Interestingly, Joker director Todd Phillips has said that Joaquin did have a habit of walking off set when they were in the middle of filming, telling the New York Times: “In the middle of the scene, he’ll just walk away and walk out. And the poor other actor thinks it’s them and it was never them ― it was always him, and he just wasn’t feeling it.”

Joining Joaquin in the cast of Joker are Robert De Niro and Frances Conroy, who plays his character’s mother.

a man wearing a suit and tie standing in front of a building: Todd Phillips’ Joker movie won’t be hitting theaters until October 4. But it’s been provoking both heated outrage and acclaim from the internet filmgoing community already. Some have said Joaquin Phoenix's performance could be Oscar worthy. Others have denounced the film as one-note, or worse, with certain critics making the case that a film like Joker could even be dangerous in today’s sociopolitical climate. However the movie ends up being received by wide audiences when it’s finally released later this fall, one thing’s for sure–the decades-old DC Comics character called The Joker is a force of nature. The villainous Clown Prince of Crime has been the subject of several famous–and tragic–portrayals over the past half a century, making the careers of some actors, and, as in the case of Jared Leto, bringing performer’s reputation down into the gutters. There is just something about The Joker. He’s an enigmatic and fully terrifying Batman foil who was created all the way back in 1940 by the DC Comics team of Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson. A shocking phenomenon to behold, Joker’s possibly the greatest villain in pop culture history. His hilarious, sociopathic, and downright demonic presence has become something of a filmmaking tradition. Just like with James Bond, or even Batman himself, it’s no small news when an actor signs on to play the infamous Dark Knight nemesis.
