Warner Bros. has a pair of standalone Joker films forthcoming, and the one starring Joaquin Phoenix will arrive in theaters first. Phoenix will lead the cast of “Joker,” out October 4, 2019. “The Hangover” trilogy’s Todd Phillips will direct the tentpole, which he co-wrote with “The Fighter” Oscar nominee Scott Silver. This feature is expected to be the debut entry in a new branch of DC Films — more details could come at Warner Bros.’ Saturday morning San Diego Comic-Con presentation.

Drected by Todd Phillips (“The Hangover”), producers are Emma Tillinger Koskoff and Richard Baratta; they were Martin Scorsese’s producers on “The Wolf of Wall Street” and the upcoming “The Irishman.” Baratta also served as the production manager on the three Spider-Man films released between 2002 and 2007.
