But even if he didn’t get Luther’s role in it Superman: LegacyThere is no doubt that he would be a very good candidate to play some of the other enemies of the DC heroes, like the Joker, for example.

The Joker will be an important piece in the DCU’s future
Even if the character does not appear in Brave and daringthe film that will introduce a post-Ben Affleck version of the Dark Knight into the main canon of the franchise, there’s still plenty of room for the infamous villain to shine and wreak havoc on the streets of Gotham City in few other projects.
On the other hand, Joaquin Phoenix will once again become Arthur Fleck in the long-awaited sequel to Todd Phillips’ film, deeply exploring Joker’s passage through Arkham Asylum, a central setting in the Caped Crusader mythology.
