Batman Begins single-handedly saved the superhero movie. It gave the genre a fresh format – the origin myth. Fifteen years on, Batman’s greatest nemesis gets one of his own. Joker rewinds to 1981 to find a frustrated stand-up comic Arthur Fleck struggling to raise a smile, but it’s a small step from dying onstage to killing off of it. The late Heath Ledger made the Joker his own. Who better to pick up his mantle and put on the mask than the mercurial Joaquin Phoenix? Phoenix takes his first steps into the DC universe together with Director Todd Phillips (The Hangover).
