Martin Scorsese, Scott Silver, Todd Phillips and Warner Bros. are currently hard at work creating the recently announced Joker origin movie. Now, we have some of the first possible details about the movie from MMA fighter turned actor Brendan Schaub.
Brendan Schaub recently appeared on The Joe Rogen Experience where he spilt the beans on information that he claims to have received from Todd Phillips’ agent, Todd Feldman:
“My boy Todd Feldman put this together with Todd Phillips. It’s dark. It’s like a dark Joker. As a kid, he had a permanent smile and everyone made fun of him. It’s like on the streets of Brooklyn. It’s super dark and real.”
If the above is to be believed, it seems that Joker will have some sort of physical or mental condition, or maybe a disfigurement, as a young boy.
While many fans have been completely against this film, mostly because the Joker‘s origins are meant to be a mystery, Warner seems determined to go ahead with the project.
