Todd Phillips confirms that The Joker will be rated R! We can breathe a little bit easier now knowing that The Joker will go in the complete opposite direction of Venom and be R. This is one movie that needs to make Gotham as dark as it can! Now Todd can guarantee us that is rated R but the MPAA still has yet to release an absolute rating Joaquin Phoenix said this about the vision of The Joker.
“I think, underneath the excitement of these films, and the size of them, there are these incredible characters that are dealing with real life struggles,” Phoenix explained to Collider. “And sometimes that is uncovered and exposed, and sometimes it isn’t, and so I always felt, like, there were characters in comics that were really interesting and deserve the opportunity to be kind of studied. And so I think that’s what Todd sees appealing about this idea.”
Marc Maron compared the Joker to the same vein as The Killing Joke. Which has us personally excited.
Joker premieres in theaters on October 4.
