My character is difficult to characterize, and not a single psychiatrist can diagnose him,
– said the Phoenix, admitting that, in preparation for the role, he, in addition to losing much weight (at the insistence of the director), read a book about psychological disorders.
Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix
Todd Phillips admitted that he shot a completely independent story, not directly related to previous Batman films. At a press conference, he explained that since nothing was known about the origin of the Joker, he was interested to imagine what a villain could be before everyone knew about him.
We had no restrictions, no history that we had to adhere to. But we decided to preserve the canonical elements and placed the action in the imaginary city of Gotham of the late 1970s – early 1980s, He said.
The release of the picture in cinemas, including in Russia, is scheduled for early October.
