Brie Larson Proves Once Again Why She Should Be In Star Wars

Not for the first time, Brie Larson picked up a lightsaber at Ace Comic Con this past weekend. And let’s just say Mace Windu would be proud.

The Captain Marvel actress took a break from meeting and greeting to wield the iconic Star Wars weapon, proving that, once again, she would be a tremendous asset to the Lucasfilm franchise. She’s an Oscar-winning actress who also happens to be Captain Marvel, what’s not to love?

Besides, having cut her teeth in indie dramas – namely Short Term 12 and the really rather excellent Room – Larson has been catapulted into the big time thanks to key roles in Kong: Skull Island and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Next stop: Star Wars? It’s certainly possible, and thanks to Larson’s enthusiasm, we don’t have to use much imagination to visualize her in Jedi attire.

Does Joker Have a Post-Credit Scene?

  • MovieWeb
After months of talking about it, Joker has finally hit theaters. As many comic book fans and moviegoers make their way to theaters this weekend to check out the latest from Warner Bros. and DC Films, an important question must be asked; does Joker have a post-credit scene? Do those heading to check out the movie in the coming weeks need to be prepared to sit through the end credits for some sort of stinger or tease of something else to come?

Warning: spoilers ahead for those who don't want to know anything about Joker, including the existence (or lack thereof) of a post-credit scene. That said, no, there is no post-credit scene or any sort of additional content during the movie's end credits. Once the movie ends, it ends. That's it. There is no tease of a Joker sequel or another movie coming down the pipeline, as is often

Joker director says the film isn’t trying to glorify violence

Todd Phillips, the director of Joker, says the film isn’t trying to glorify violence.

In the build-up to its much-anticipated release, there has been a fair bit of talk online about Joker and the way it depicts violence. Some have criticised the film, saying that it even glorifies the act.

Todd Phillips is having none of this. Speaking to The Wrap, the director dismissed the claims and even revealed the real reason he and Joaquin Phoenix decided to make the movie:

“I literally described to Joaquin at one point in those three months as like, ‘Look at this as a way to sneak a real movie in the studio system under the guise of a comic book film’. It wasn’t, ‘We want to glorify this behavior.’ It was literally like ‘Let’s make a real movie with a real budget and we’ll call it f–ing Joker‘. That’s what it was.

Music was instrumental to Joaquin Phoenix while filming Joker

Joaquin Phoenix, the star of Joker, says that music behind-the-scenes was incredibly helpful when making the film.

Music, we all know, is a big part of a successful movie – a bad score or soundtrack can really detract from a film’s success. But what about music played behind-the-scenes to help with shooting?

In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Phoenix said that music was integral to the Joker‘s movie-making process: “I think a lot of filmmakers have used music on set that I’ve worked with and it can be a really effective tool and I certainly use it myself. But for this film it was absolutely instrumental and again, that kind of dancing in the bathroom scene was the first time I heard the score and it had a huge, noticeable influence on the way that we ultimately discovered the movement for that scene, so it was absolutely integral to the character.

Joker director says his movie shouldn’t be linked to real-world violence

Todd Phillips, the director of Joker, has responded to accusations that the film could lead to acts of real-life violence.

With Joker soon to arrive in cinemas, some critics are concerned that the film portrays violence in a way that could lead to real-life incidents. Some are citing the tragic Aurora shooting that took place at a theater where The Dark Knight Rises was playing.

Todd Phillips doesn’t think it’s fair, however, to link Joker to acts of actual violence, especially when other films don’t get held to the same standard. Speaking to the Associated Press, he said:

“I mean, I think that Aurora is obviously a horrible, horrible situation but even that is not something you blame on the movie. Quite frankly, if you do your own research about Aurora that gentleman wasn’t even going in as Joker, That was misreported, his hair was dyed red he was having,

Joaquin Phoenix didn’t need to go to dark places to play the Joker

Joaquin Phoenix, the star of Joker, has revealed that he had great fun playing the iconic villain and didn’t need to go to dark places in order to do so.

When an actor like Joaquin Phoenix signs on to play a character as distrubed as the Joker, one imagines he would have had to go to some pretty dark places to inhabit the role.

However, the actor has revealed that this wasn’t the case for him. In fact, he told ComicBook.com that he had actually had a great time making the movie: “This is going to disappoint you, I don’t think I [went to dark places], so we had a good time. Honestly, or I’d feel like either I’m going to disappoint you, or I am going to seem like an actor that is not really committed, and you’re like, ‘He didn’t really do good in that movie,

Joker movie rooted in real-life mental health issues according to its director

Joker and the laugh of Arthur Fleck are rooted in real-life mental health issues according to the film’s director Todd Phillips.

Even though the Joker is straight out of the fantastical world of comics, that doesn’t mean the character can’t be grounded in very real issues. This is just what Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix were going for with their new film Joker.

Speaking at a Q&a (via Screen Rant), Phillips explained how the Joker’s laugh has its roots in a very real neurological condition that actual people have called pseudobulbar affect:

“We researched it, and we studied that. Quite frankly, that laugh could be [a symptom]. People are afflicted in different ways. Some people cry from this, and some people laugh. And it’s always at the wrong moment, and it’s really painful. What we discovered was, it happens from head trauma as a young person,

Joker director Todd Phillips aims to leave audiences speechless with the movie

Todd Phillips, the director of Joker, would like to leave audiences speechless after viewing the movie.

Often after viewing a movie, audiences will quickly chat amongst each other, sharing their opinions on what they saw. However, sometimes a film comes along that can’t be digested immediately.

The latter is what Todd Phillips is going for with Joker. Speaking to ComicBook.com, the director revealed that he hopes that audiences will be speechless after the first viewing, as they don’t know quite what to make of the film:

“I find it difficult to talk immediately after, a lot of films, this film in particular for me. I found that as we’ve shown it to people, even when I just bring somebody to the editing room and show it to a friend, a film maker friend, whoever and then you go, and it’s over, and then, they need time,

Joaquin Phoenix wanted to audition his Joker laugh for director Todd Phillips

Joaquin Phoenix, the star of Joker, has revealed that he auditioned the character’s iconic laugh.

One of the most iconic sounds in film and TV is the Joker’s laugh and every actor has had their slightly different take on it. Nailing the laugh is a big part of making the character your own and this is why Joaquin Phoenix was so invested in getting his right for Joker.

Even though Todd Phillips had already given him the role, Phoenix has revealed to Screen Rant that he requested that he audition his laugh for the director – just to see if he could get it right. Explaining how he found his laugh, Phoenix said: “Well, really… Do you remember that I basically just auditioned myself?” he said to Todd Phillips.

“I had you come over to audition the laugh, because I didn’t think I could do it. Because you showed me some videos,

Todd Phillips, the director of Joker, has clarified his earlier comments about the film’s comic book inspiration.

It had been reported that Todd Phillips had said his Joker movie isn’t basing its plot on the comic books but the director has now said that this isn’t quite the case, that film actually has taken inspiration from the comics of the past.

Speaking to ComicBook.com, the director said: “What I said was that we didn’t take anything from one particular comic. We kind of picked and chose what we liked from the 80-year canon of Joker and we’d say ‘oh, that’s interesting This is kind of…’ We kind of pulled a few things that we liked.”

Joker director debunks The Batman crossover speculation, Leonardo DiCaprio casting rumour

Last week, Variety reported that incoming Dark Knight Robert Pattinson may have dropped a potential spoiler regarding The Batman, after the actor reportedly requested that some comments about Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker were redacted during an interview.

Given that Joker exists separately from the established DC Extended Universe, and The Batman’s Dceu status remains unclear after Ben Affleck’s exit from the role, this report naturally led to that Pattinson’s Dark Knight Detective could find himself sharing the screen with Phoenix’s Clown Prince of Crime.

However, it seems that won’t be the case after all, as Joker director Todd Phillips has responded with a “no, definitely not” when asked about the possibility of the pair appearing together in a future DC movie, adding that: “Oddly, in the States, comic books are our Shakespeare it seems, and you can do many many versions of ‘Hamlet’. There will be many more jokers,
