Zazie Beetz in Talks for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Movie

The only DC-related movie I’ve been stoked about in, like, 20 years is about to get even better.

Atlanta and Deadpool 2 star Zazie Beetz is in talks about joining Todd Phillips’ upcoming Joker, according to an exclusive scoop from the Hollywood Reporter. As previously reported, the clearly-going-to-be-great Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix and is described by Warner Bros. as an “exploration of a man disregarded by society.” The script, co-penned by Phillips and Scott Silver, is more of a dark character study than a goofy Jared Leto vomit act set to film. That’s a relief.

  1. Haha that's pretty ironic, I'm watching Atlanta on FXCanada and I see the thumbnail and I think to myself "Is, is that Vanessa fro. Atlanta?" And sure enough

  2. Black Harley? That’d be interesting, and I’d be down for it, if this casting choice were aimed in that direction that is. Granted, I’m still strung off of Margot Robbie’s perfect interpretation of Harley Quinn. 😍
