Joaquin Phoenix Is A Perfect Fit for The Joker

We are only a few months away from the premiere of the Joker. Joaquin Phoenix will portray the infamous villain from the DC universe. The Joker has been portrayed by many well- known actors, but for a stand-alone origin story will Joaquin Phoenix be able to portray the Joker in due fashion?

The film is adapted from Delaware author Charles Brandt’s book I Heard You Paint Houses and focuses on the eventful life of hitman Frank Sheeran, aka The Irishman.
