The Hangover director Todd Phillips in talks to write and direct a Joker origin movie for Warner Brothers & DC
I could go for a rashomon style origin story like that, but I think you're right about it probably ending up being a generic origin flick. It'd probably work nicely as animation in that narrative style, thoughBest way to solve this film is for it to cover 4-5 alternative stories of where the joker has said he came from and let the viewer "decide" for themselves which one is true, and end with the joker laughing and alluding to all the stories are false
Have to agree with the general consensus, definitely not needed in my opinion. Quite happy with the Tim Burton version and Gotham interpretation.
I really liked the Gotham interpretation. Definitely all I ever needed to know.They are going to ruin this.
The point of the joker is we don't know his origin and he decides to make up a story every other arc someone asks him about it (or he decides to tell someone).

However I'm sure DC will be really basic and try and do a normal origins storyline. I just don't see how this can be good but DC are hell bent on ruining all of their franchises except wonder woman so they might as well go for it.

Joaquin Phoenix in Talks to Play the Joker in Todd Phillips’ Standalone Movie (EXCLUSIVE)
Many fans scratched their heads when news first broke that Martin Scorsese, who has eschewed superhero films in the past, would be a producer of the film. But his involvement makes more sense given his work on 1982’s “King of Comedy,” which starred Robert De Niro as a deluded comedian who can’t catch a break. The Joker origin story will include nods to that film, insiders told TheWrap.
Joaquin Phoenix is close to a deal to play the Joker in Phillips’ film, which will show audiences laughing at the Joker instead of with him. The film is eyeing a mid- to late-2018 production start, but an insider with knowledge of the project said it could be delayed by rewrites, which are currently underway by Phillips and “8 Mile” veteran Scott Silver.
