Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘Joker’ Movie Adds MCU VFX Supervisor

Jul 17, 2018

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.

He’ll join Amazing Spider-Man 2/Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou production designer Mark Friedberg and Phantom Thread costume designer Mark Bridges, who were previously mentioned by ThatHashtagShow.

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.
