Expectations are high for the upcoming Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix. The film received an eight-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival over the weekend, and reviews have already placed it as a possible early contender for the Oscars. But beyond that, the future of the DC movie universe really begins to look bright, with Robert Pattinson signed on to be the next Batman.
In one of his first interviews, after accepting the role of the bat, Pattinson made a miniature slip – up that there are fans who think Batman will share the universe with Phoenix's Joker:
Pattinson won't say if he's involved in additional Batman movies. "I don't know anything," he says. "I have an idea of how to do about four scenes, and then gradually work on the rest." At one point in our conversation, he offered a mundane commentary on Joaquin Phoenix, who starred in "The Joker" (a movie he had never watched) before asking him to withdraw. "Oh yes," he says, adding that he is not used to thinking about spoilers. "I definitely shouldn't say that. I'm used to a lot of art house movies where you can watch the movie three times and you still don't know what it is. "
This is a weird moment in the interview. Why does Pattinson even mention the Joker is something he wants to pull off? Reddit fans elsewhere have already speculated that this could mean his Batman may be going away
Others claim that he probably did not want to mention it because it would stir up rumors just like that. Elsewhere on Reddit, fans started trying to do the math to see if they would it made sense even for these characters to share the same universe as them and since Joker Phoenix The Joker took place in the early 80's ̵
At this point I don't care how adds the timeline, I put Pattinson and Phoenix in a movie together, cowards.
