Joker Set Photo Suggests the DC Movie Inspired by This Film

While The King of Comedy is a widely reported inspiration for the Joker origin movie, new clues from the set hint that another Martin Scorsese/Robert De Niro classic — Taxi Driver — could also be an influence.

The King of Comedy and Taxi Driver are both profiles of deranged and broken men, delusional urban loners who criminally lash out at those they feel have rejected them, and the Joker movie — penned by director Todd Phillips (the Hangover trilogy) and co-screenwriter Scott Silver (8 Mile, The Fighter) — certainly sounds like it’s in a similar vein. The official plot synopsis for Joker describes Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck as “a man disregarded by society” and the DC film as “not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”

Every Joker Movie First Look Photo

There have been four big screen, live-action incarnations of the Joker in the last three decades, and each first look has provoked a different response — and each seemingly more divisive among fandom than the last.

Nicholson’s debuted in traditional print media, Ledger’s was revealed via viral marketing, while both Leto and Phoenix’s debuted via social media.

UPDATED, August 29: Alec Baldwin denies that he’s been cast in the Joker movie.

Baldwin tweeted Wednesday: “Let me state, for the record, that I have NOT been hired to play a role in Todd Phillips’ JOKER as some Donald Trump manque. That is not happening. Not. Happening.”

Baldwin informed USA Today that “scheduling” issues were the big reason why he was dropping out of the movie. “I’m no longer doing that movie,” Baldwin told the outlet. “I’m sure there are 25 guys who can play that part.”

Suicide Squad: Leto Met With Killers to Prepare for Joker

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto put a lot of effort into playing the Joker. In preparation for the role, the actor met with “psychopaths and people who had committed horrendous crimes.”

Maybe that’s where Leto picked up the used condoms and anal beads?

Leto told Entertainment Weekly when he takes on a role like the Joker, he becomes “part detective, part writer.”

“I knew I had to be committed as much as possible,” Leto said. “I had to be committed beyond belief. And I did what I needed to do deliver the best I possibly could.”
