‘Joker’ is the official title of Joaquin Phoenix’s origin movie, coming October 2019

Warner Bros. announced the official title and release date for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker origin movie today. The movie will be simply called Joker and will hit theaters on October 4, 2019.

The timing is interesting because that is less than one month before Wonder Woman 1984 is scheduled to be released on November 1, 2019. Though who can complain about two DC movies in less than 30 days?

Joker will begin shooting in New York City this September.
