In case you didn’t know already. There is a solo Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix (directed by Todd Phillips) currently in production. Filming only just started last week and thanks to Just Jared, we have gotten our first look at Phoenix’s Joker in action. Also director Todd Phillips, I’m guessing has responding to these leaked by giving us our first official look at Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker.
See below for the set photos and Todd Phillip’s post:
Just a couple of minutes after these set photos leaked. Director Todd Phillips took to Instagram and gave us our first official look at Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker (Arthur).
This Joker movie is going to be an origin movie which is set in the 80s. It will not feature Batman. But, it will feature his father, Thomas Wayne. The movie is not going to be connected to the DCEU at all. And it will stand alone in its own universe.
The Joker movie is set to be released on 4, October 2019
Information on next year’s Avengers movie has been scarce. We don’t even know what the official title of the movie is yet. However, as we go into September, expect to see Marvel release tons of information on one of their biggest movies ever. I know, I feel like I find myself saying that with every Avengers movie.
A couple of weeks ago this concept art had leaked from Avengers 4. Initially this promo art was labelled as a ‘fake’. However, just a couple of days ago, someone has leaked a better version of this promo art. The most interesting to note about this concept art is how it only features the Avengers who survived the ‘snap’.
Here’s a close up on a few of the characters:
Captain Marvel, is expected to play a huge role in Avengers 4. The concept art shows the character in her traditional suit which she will obtain in her solo movie.
This might be the most interesting aspect of the concept art. Yes, Hulk in his own suit. It looks odd but, he has had this type of look a number of times in the comics.
When looking at Captain America, again, this concept art looks to be accurate. Having seen set photos from Avengers 4, we know Cap will no longer have the beard and will be wearing an earlier version of his suit.
The likes of Iron Man, Thor and Rocket remain unchanged from Avengers: Infinity War:

Do you think it’s real or fake?
It feels like Matt Reeves’ Batman movie has been in development forever. Information surrounding the project has been scarce. Matt Reeves has been tight-lipped during the whole process, and I don’t blame him. However, in the past couple of months he has slowly been giving up updates. One of the major things he revealed was how he’s close to submitting his first draft for the script. While Matt Reeves hasn’t publicity stated that he’s submitted the first draft yet. Umberto Gonzalez responding to a fan on Twitter last night revealed the first draft has been submitted to the studio.
This could also most likely explain Matt Reeves’ trip to the Batman ’66 exhibition last week. It’s possible he was taking a well deserved break after submitting the script.
People have their own thoughts and opinions on Umberto as a source. Personally I find him to be pretty reliable. And I trust him here. With the first draft submitted this should hopefully mean the studio are still on track to start shooting the project next spring!

Sony’s Venom movie is right around the corner as I write this. For months there has been speculation as to whether this movie would be Rated R or PG-13. From the start it felt like this film was going to be Rated R as it would look to fully embrace this dark, iconic villain. The tag-line of the movie even states “No more heroes”. However, the talk of Venom being Rated R started to change back in August with Variety’s report. They claimed the studio were likely going to go with a PG-13 rating. According to Variety, one of the main reasons for this PG-13 rating would be so they could eventually bring in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man into the universe. Taking this direction would make Sony’s Spider-Man universe more accessible to the general audience. And ultimately allowing them to make more money.
Well, today it has been pretty much confirmed that Venom will be PG-13. Sites such as AMC have started selling tickets already. Not only do they confirm the PG-13 rating of the movie. But, they have also revealed the runtime of Venom, which is 1hr and 52mins.
As someone who is looking forward to this movie, I have to admit I’m kind of disappointed with this decision. I just feel like if you’re going to make a Venom movie, then go all out. This is a character who eats people’s brains! Are they just going to cut the scene before he kills someone? At this moment it feels like Sony are too busy planning ahead. Let’s make sure that this Venom is a success first of all. Then you can worry about sequels. And how you want to incorporate Spider-Man into this universe.
My best hope at the moment is we’ll get an R Rated cut when the movie is released on Blu-ray.
Venom is set to be released next month on Oct.5
