Joker Theory: Joaquin Phoenix Is Part Of The Main DCEU

  • Published: 29 September 2019
  • This theory suggests that not only could Joaquin Phoenix and Jared Leto's Jokers be connected, but Robert Pattinson's Batman could also be part of that main DC Universe! Subscribe to our channel:

    Welcome to the video description, ScreenRanters! If you’re unsure whether this video is worth your time, then let us convince you that it is! And then some! The Joker film is due to be released in October 2019. It’s set in 1981 and stars Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Gotham. DC have told everyone that it’s not connected to the DCEU at all. But maybe they’re trying to put us off the scent. In reality, Phoenix’s Joker could be the foundation of the DC cinematic movement! Sounds implausible, we know. But we have some evidence that backs up this theory.

    We’re going to take a look at how Phoenix’s and Jared Leto’s portrayals are actually connected. Even though they’re separated by nearly 35 years in their respective universes. We believe that Phoenix may actually appear in the next Batman film. Which of course, stars Robert Pattinson as the shadowy vigilante. Todd Phillips and Pattinson have both hinted in interviews that this could be the case as well. We take into account Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, the Suicide Squad, Gotham City Sirens, and the Birds Of Prey films to prove this wacky theory. Even using The Darkseid War from the comics as a possible idea on how it could all fit together. On top of that, we use the time periods of other films like Wonder Woman and its sequel as another concept. So, join us today as we give you a crazy theory that may just be true!

        This joker won’t be in Batman movies. If he is it doesn’t make sense he’s not a fighting badass like ledger was

            People say the DCEU the way it is, is garbage so if Joaquin's Joker is in the DCEU I might just kill myself.

                They should just scrap the entire DCEU and let the new Joker movie be the beginning of a new DCEU

                          • Leto's Joker was the son of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker.

                                  There's some rumors that DC is actually starting a new cinematic universe: the DC Black.
                                  This "new" DCEU will focus in more adult and darker stories of DC Comics. Joker was the first one and there's some rumors that they're planning on making a Lex Luthor becoming President film.

                                      OR, in the 90s phoenix kidnaps Robin, destroys him mentally and Leto is that Robin. Grown up and a new Joker. 😁

                                          Phoenix put letos joker to shame. Literary joaquin killed his take on the joker. Tied with heath in my opinion

                                                  I want him to be the joker again but it doesn’t have to be the same one from his film.

                                                    Phoenix’s Joker is a one and done unfortunately. He has stated that in multiple interviews so has Todd. I think a sequel could ruin the mystique and intrigue of this amazing film. Joaquin is always leaving us wanting more

Remember when joker asks batman wanna know how i got these scars? He never tells the story but what if the joker movie is the story he was going to tell batman in the climax of the dark knight.

Perhaps Phoenix as Joker stab them in the chest repeatedly with a pair of scissors leaving the same marks the robin suit in Batman v Superman as you see on the Leto Jokers chest when his shirt is off. Perhaps your Lazarus Pit Theory came into play and Phoenix's Joker brainwashed Robin into becoming Leto's Joker. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

                                                                                        I don't understand this desire for everything to be somehow magically connected. The new Joker film is clearly too violent (and well made) for the DCEU and even if Phillips wanted to make a sequel to Joker film, whose to say he wants to link it to other DCEU films which suck balls. I guess it's just fan dreaming but I hope no one seriously even wants these films to be connected to each other.
