The movie is set to be “darker and more experimental in tone” with a deeper delve into the Joker’s character as a cautionary tale of how a man that is disregarded by society and turned insane can wreak havoc. The movie will be directed by Todd Phillips and start shooting in the fall this year. The tentative planned release is late next year if everything goes accordingly.
