Not much is known about the film yet except for a few tidbits. We know this is not part of the DC Extended Universe and is instead a stand-alone film. Phoenix will be the man who becomes the Joker with Robert De Niro playing a talk show host that somehow figures into the events that will drive Phoenix’s Arthur insane.
