Despite the fact that JOKER director Todd Phillips has said it before, Phillips said it again at the Toronto International Film Festival: JOKER is a standalone film and will not be connected to any other DC film. Check out the video below via VARIETY’s Ramin Setoodeh…

So, Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker will not end up in any of Matt Reeves’ Batman movies, it isn’t tied to BATMAN v SUPERMAN because of a movie poster, and — as I have heard several people hypothesize — JOKER isn’t the origin story of Heath Ledger’s Joker from THE DARK KNIGHT.
(And while we’re at it, there ain’t going to be a release of the “Snyder Cut,” Ben Affleck will never play Batman again, and THE BATMAN isn’t in the BvS/JL continuity.)
Hopefully, we can finally put this to bed…but probably not. 😒 – Bill “Jett” Ramey
