Will it be The Joker narrating his own origin to the camera, giving Phoenix most of the film to play outside of any makeup and create a dramatic story that won't feature any insane plots or superhero setpieces?

Todd Phillips, director of The Hangover trilogy, will be helming the new movie, having co-written the screenplay with Scott Silver. It also boasts a modest $55 million price tag, which is significantly lower than most other tentpole flicks in the genre. Shooting reportedly starts in September in NY.

The current parliamentary system will end under constitutional changes approved in a referendum past year . More than 75,000 people have been arrested for alleged links to Gulen.

This set-up allows different actors take the same roles, but different versions.

There is no release date as yet, which is unusual for a comic book film, although all signs point to this being quite different from the current DC and Marvel offerings. Who knows? We might not get any Joker until the very end of the film if it all goes as reserved as it could be. According to THR, the film is "meant to be darker and more experimental in tone and content (at least as experimental as a studio can be with established brands such as DC), which is described as being akin to a crime drama". According to insiders, the Oscar-winner will not only will be back for the "Suicide Squad" sequel, Warner Bros.is also developing his own standalone movie that will be separate from Phoenix's Joker project.
