According to Comicbook.com, Joaquin Phoenix’s standalone Joker movie has landed an October 4, 2019 release date. Phoenix says of the movie, which is being helmed by Todd Phillips, “I wouldn’t say it’s a superhero movie, or a studio movie. It feels unique, and I think more than anything, and probably the most important thing, is Todd seems very passionate about it and very giving, and so that’s exciting.
