Joaquin Phoenix Joker Movie Release Date

July 20, 2018

In case you missed it, there’s a stand along Joker movie (starring Joaquin Phoenix / directed by Todd Phillips) in the works and the name & release info was released late Wednesday afternoon (July 18).


Joker will be in theaters Oct. 4, 2019. Fans learned firsthand at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. FYI – Wonder Woman 2, is also set to attack theatres on November 1, 2019.

Last month, Phoenix finalized the deal to star as Joker. The studio describes the movie as an “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”

Joker‘s budget is rumoured to be $55M, so they have money to throw around once production starts (later in 2018).

Heath Ledger’s version of Batman’s nemesis is often cited at the best Joker – what do you think?
