After successfully playing the Joker, Joaquin Phoenix will play in a film produced by the indie studio, A24. Journalists report that in this project, Phoenix will work with 20th Century Women director Mike Mills. In this untitled drama film, Phoenix will play a more sensitive role than Arthur Fleck in the Joker. He will do the act as an artist who must take care of his relative in a long journey across the country, and he will form an interesting bond with his relative in that movie. Aside from that, if you haven’t watched the Joker yet, we suggest you watch it on letmewatchthis.

Phoenix is also known as a brave and vocal actor when giving speeches at awards shows, after calling the Oscars “nonsense” in 2012. He also alluded to the issue of equality in his speech when he received the Best Actor award at the Oscars 2020.
So many fans hope that his acting can shine in future movies that he will perform in. However, DC fans specifically want to see how he continues his role as the Joker in the next DC movie.
