Warner Bros. is entering an interesting phase of the DC Comics Cinematic Universe with Todd Phillips set to direct a standalone Joker movie set in the eighties.
We have a tiny crew update and they have a connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They’ve added visual effects supervisor Edwin Rivera, who has worked on films such Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2, and 22 Jump Street.
Joaquin Phoenix is officially set to star as the Joker with Robert De Niro reportedly also being eyed for a role.
As Omega Underground previously reported filming is set to begin this September in New York City.
Warner Bros. has yet to give the film a release date but there is good chance some new information could be revealed at Comic-Con.
