  • Joaquin Phoenix The Master

Leto is set to reprise the role in the Suicide Squad sequel as well as a a spin-off based on the relationship between the Joker and Harley Quinn.

Joaquin Phoenix will follow in the footsteps of Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson by playing Batman villain the Joker, according to reports. Rather than use the DCEU's version of the Joker portrayed by Jared Leto, this film would be part of an independent branch of DC Films that have no connections to other titles.

Neither U.S. officials nor the U.S. -backed coalition have offered details on the identity of attacking forces. After the attack the coalition "conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression".

Todd Phillips is writing and directing the new standalone Joker movie, with Phillips having met with Joaquin Phoenix before the new year. It's now Phillips who is fighting to get the multiple Academy Award nominee onboard with the project with the studio heads at Warner Bros.

What's still most baffling about this project is the involvement of Phillips, who crafts collections of moving images that resemble movies, but are really just trash piles that you watch while contemplating the finality of all existence.

Poland's President Duda says will sign Holocaust bill into law
The law would make it illegal to accuse the nation of complicity in crimes committed by Nazi Germany, including the Holocaust . Analysts say that the legislation has isolated Poland from Israel, a key ally of the United States and neighbouring Ukraine.

Phoenix comes to the role that was previously rumored to be Leonardo DiCaprio's.

Scott Silver is co-writer on the film, which has been described as more of a gritty crime movie than a comic book one. As Christopher Nolan proved with his Dark Knight Trilogy, some DC characters have more than enough to them to hold up in their own universes.

Influenza affecting more people than normal: Northern Health
In mid-January, about 10 percent of Wichita drivers - four times the usual number - called in sick each day, Jen Biddinger said . With those numbers expected to increase health officials in north Georgia are stepping up flu prevention efforts.

Phoenix has been nominated for two Best Actor Oscars for his work in 2013's The Master and 2006's Walk the Line. Warner Bros had no comment on the news. However, WB has not confirmed it as such, and there was once a time when Phoenix was in talks to play Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange, so don't take it as a done deal.
