If you weren't already confused by Warner Bros. and DC's superhero movie strategies, the movie studio is already turning things around. They are moving a step ahead with the standalone film based on the infamous DC character Joker, which features Joaquin Phoenix as the iconic antagnonist. Todd Phillips (The director of The Hangover and War Dogs) will helm the currently untitled film. The shooting will reportedly start in the month of September.

But since the news broke, some lost fans have been wondering, "Hey, wasn't there going to be a standalone Joker movie starring Jared Leto?"

Well Yes, in fact, there was (still is)! This movie will reportedly be made under a dark and different DC label than the original superhero movies like Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, Justice League and so on. The filmmakers have a view to experiment with various DC's characters, hence the idea. The estimated budget of this highly ambitious Phillips and Phoenix's Joker film is kept around $55 million - which is quite low in comparison to the other superhero movies from the authentic banner.

The film is described as the "exploration of a man disregarded by society. It is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale."

Well, the announcement of this version of Joker has raised many eyebrows but most of them have quite a positive outlook regarding Joaquin's portrayal of the Joker.

On the other hand, Wonder Woman 2 (Wonder Woman 1984) and Aquaman are the upcoming movies in the row of Superhero movies in the DC Universe and well, let's just focus on them for now, eh?
