Joaquin Phoenix is the front runner to play the Joker in an upcoming stand alone movie. Here are 5 reasons why he's perfect for the role.
Joaquin Phoenix would be a damn near perfect anything lol. Gary Oldman wants him as the Batman to follow Affleck’s. Snyder originally wanted him as Lex Luther which would have been phenomenal! He turned it down and it was rewritten for Jesse Eisenberg once he was cast :l
Jesse eisenberg is hard to watch. Joaquin is just one of those rare talents. Hes super flexible and adaptable. Definitely one of this generations most slept on actors
I like Jesse but his Lex was too weird. I was actually ok with his casting originally but it turned out to be too jittery and weird. Agreed that Joaquin is underused.He turned down a big role over at Marvel around the time they were casting for Doctor Strange. He’s very selective so it’s no surprise that we don’t see him often.
