Kevin Smith Defends Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Origin Movie
The Flash and Supergirl executive and nerd ruler Kevin Smith is cheerful about Warner Bros.’ up and coming Joaquin Phoenix-drove Joker motion picture and lauded DC Films for exploring different avenues regarding lower-planned grown-up passage.
“Think about it, there was a time in our lives where there were no Joker films, and no prospect of a Joker film. I’ll take ‘em,” Smith told Hollywood Babble-On co-host Ralph Garman in its July 13 episode.
“Here’s the thing, at the end of the day, I’ll see a trailer — I know me. Even if the trailer is terrible, even if the trailer is a minute of footage of them killing my mother in front of me, I’m sure I’ll be like, ‘Well, I’ll give it a shot when it comes out.’ I know I’m gonna f—n’ watch this movie.”
