Martin Scorsese: Warner Bros and Superhero Nonsense
martin scorsese: I'm your host, and I'm already so very tired, according to NOW Magazine. This week's big news, just ahead of Comic-Con, is that Warner Bros. has cast Joaquin Phoenix in its long-brewing Joker origin movie, to be directed by The Hangover's Todd Phillips and produced by Martin Scorsese. Welcome to the very first edition of Superhero Nonsense, a column devoted to whatever news is breaking at the intersection of comic books and cinema. Ooookay. But he always walked away, ambivalent about whether the work would be worthwhile. From one angle, Phoenix's casting is a coup of sorts because he's been offered comic-book roles before Marvel courted the actor for the roles of Bruce Banner in The Avengers and Stephen Strange in Doctor Strange, and he was an early contender to play DC villain Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman Dawn Of Justice.
