Joker Fan Art Combines Joaquin Phoenix Character With Robert Pattinson As Batman


It’s no secret that superhero movies are everywhere, with various studios creating their own cinematic universes. Warner Bros. has also produced projects outside of the main DCEU, the most recent being that of Matt Reeves. The Batman. And now some Joker fan art has combined the character of Joaquin Phoenix with Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight.

While Marvel Studios has focused entirely on serialized storytelling, DC has also churned out comic book blockbusters that stand on their own. Todd Phillips’ Joker was a huge success, winning Joaquin Phoenix an Academy Award for his portrayal of Arthur Fleck. And after The Batman came out, some fans were hoping to see these two projects connect. Now we can see what that pairing could look like thanks to some awesome fan art at instagramcheck it out below,

I mean, how cool is that? Although there are currently no plans to The Batman and Joker to have a crossover film at Warner Bros., you can’t help but notice how awesome it would be to see Robert Pattinson and Joaquin Phoenix portray their characters in live-action. We’ll just have to see how successful the ongoing fan campaign is.

The image above comes to us from instagram from a digital artist called TMY Arts. They’ve amassed a following on social media, thanks to obvious interest in franchises like the DCEU, MCU and star wars. So shortly after The Batman hit theaters, it got fans excited to see Robert Pattinson’s hero crossover with JokerIt’s Arthur Fleck. But could this pairing actually happen IRL?

For its part, The Batman director Matt Reeves doesn’t seem too enthusiastic on integrating Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck into his burgeoning superhero franchise. His recent movie spent years in development hell, with Reeves attached before Todd Phillips Joker came together. He never thought of bringing in Joaquin Phoenix. Moreover, the end of The Batman seemed to tease his take on the Jokerplayed by Keoghan.

Still, fans will be waiting to see a connection between Joker and The Batman. After all, they’re the only two recent DC releases that aren’t connected to the larger shared universe. But clearly Matt Reeves has his own plans for Gotham City, including a TV spin-off on HBO Max. As for Jokerit’s unclear if/when Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix will collaborate on a sequel – despite the two initially interested.

The Batman is still in theaters now, and the next DC movie to follow will be the recently delayed black adam October 21. In the meantime, be sure to check out the 2022 movie release dates to plan your next cinematic experience.
