Joaquin Phoenix's method for becoming the Joker was unlike any actor that came before him! Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant

Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix’s new Joker film has finally screened for some critics and the first reactions are in. Needless to say, the response is certainly divisive.Given standing ovations and drawing comparisons to Taxi Driver, it’s safe to say that Joker is already stirring up a lot of conversation. At the center of most of that conversation is Phoenix’s performance, which is garnering critical acclaim and even Oscar Buzz. Phoenix, a respected actor in the indie and art-film scene, was an unconventional choice, but one that has appeared to pay off.

With so much attention on Joaquin Phoenix as an actor, and this performance in particular, it’s hard not to wonder about the process that goes into playing a character like this. Especially after the highly publicised tragedy surrounding Heath Ledger’s portrayal, and the widely mocked mysticism built up around Jared Leto’s.

While Phoenix has remained tight-lipped about a lot of his preparation methods, he has dropped enough hints and clues during interviews to begin to paint a picture of his process. It’s difficult to even imagine getting into the head of a character as nihilistic and violent as the Joker, and even a pro like Phoenix struggled with it. But he took the job as a challenge, and the ways in which he conquered that challenge are really fascinating.

In the full video, we dig into Phoenix’s psychological prep as well as his physical, and dive into how some of his previous roles could have prepared him for playing the clown prince of crime. Check out the video for more information on how Joaquin Phoenix prepared for Joker.

Here are 15 more totally improvised moments from Marvel movies! Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant From the people who brought you "25 Times Marvel Actors Went Totally Off Script" comes the next exciting instalment in the series: "15 MORE Times Marvel Actors Went Totally Off Script"! We... we couldn't think of a more imaginative title... ANYWAY, Marvel movies have always tended to allow the actors who star in them to be creative - and that's resulted in countless moments that you probably didn’t even know weren’t scripted. You might be surprised that some of these moments involving the likes of Robert Downey Jr. (who plays Tony Stark AKA Iron Man in the MCU), Chris Pratt (who plays Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord in the MCU), Chris Hemsworth (who plays Thor in the MCU), and Benedict Cumberbatch (who plays Stephen Strange AKA Doctor Strange in the MCU) were completely ad-libbed - though you might be less surprised at the fact that one of them sees RDJ humorously trying to one-up his good buddy Tom Holland (who plays Peter Parker AKA Spider-Man in the MCU). There's a chance you won't look at certain scenes in these Marvel movies in the same way ever again! If you'd like to know what exactly those moments entail - and indeed which other stars are included in this video - you'll just have to watch it to find out more! We hope you enjoy the video!

Watch This Before You Go See Joker
Watch This Before You Go See Joker

by Looper

Thumbnail Image by Bosslogic → https://www.instagram.com/bosslogic/ Considering how singular Joaquin Phoenix'sinterpretation of the Joker promises to be, it's probably a good idea to know a little bit about the character's long history to fully appreciate what's different about his depiction. Here's everything you need to know before watching 2019's Joker. Since his debut in 1940 's Batman #1, the Joker has been Batman's most popular and enduring arch-nemesis. As a result, he's appeared opposite every big-screen version of the Caped Crusader's adventures since 1966's Batman: The Movie. While the character's popularity has remained consistent, the different cinematic Jokers have taken a very different approach to the tone of the character. The version played by Cesar Romero was a perfect fit for the campy, relatively lighthearted world imagined by the TV show. He was portrayed as more of a giggling, over the top bank robber than anything else. When the Joker returned to theaters in Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film with Jack Nicholson under the makeup, he was played as something a little more like a murderous performance artist. He was a hitman for the mob with a thing for playing cards right from the beginning of the film - and even killed Bruce Wayne's parents in that version of Batman's origin story - but his dip into the acid gave him a whole new perspective. He not only took over Gotham City's crime families for himself, he also plotted to kill everyone in the city, dosing them with poisonous gas as his masterpiece. Batman: The Animated Series hit television screens in 1992, and the following year saw the theatrical release of an animated movie, Mask of the Phantasm. In both the show and the film, the Joker was played by Mark Hamill, who might be best known from his starring role as Luke Skywalker in a little-known independent film called Star Wars. Hamill's version of the character was beloved by fans, and he kept the role in various animated shows and video games through today, despite flirting with retirement from the part after Batman: Arkham City. 2008 brought us The Dark Knight, and Heath Ledger's unforgettable, Academy Award-winning performance. This time, unlike Burton and Nicholson's take, the Joker had no origin story, and even told conflicting versions of his history to different characters throughout the film. He billed himself as an "agent of chaos," with intricate, clockwork plans that were designed to destroy any sense of morality that Batman had returned to his city. With the launch of DC's movie universe, we got another version of the Joker in Suicide Squad, which saw Jared Leto apparently going full method actor in order to embrace the Joker's sinister personality. In this take, he was a heavily tattooed, unpredictable crime boss with a gift for manipulating people like his sidekick, Harley Quinn, a character who had originally appeared in the animated series and rose to incredible popularity in the decades since. With that many different portrayals - not to mention all of the different interpretations of the Joker that have appeared in comic books over the past 80 years - the idea that any single actor could be the only "true" Joker is as insane as the character himself. Even with that in mind, though, Joaquin Phoenix's portrayal in the Joker's first-ever solo film promises to be a pretty big departure from what we've seen before.

20 Tiny MCU Details That Prove They Thought Of Everything
20 Tiny MCU Details That Prove They Thought Of Everything

by Screen Rant

So much attention to detail was put into these Marvel movie moments! Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant Creating the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a lot more than just sticking Iron Man in a bunch of random films. From timelines to story connections, the production team behind these movies have worked tirelessly to include all types of little details to help connect movies and make the MCU feel as real as possible. Captain America has gone through quite the journey in the MCU and so have the costume designers who dress the hero. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Avengers “A” symbol appears on his uniform, but by the time he’s butting heads with Tony Stark in Captain America: Civil War, the symbol has been removed. And speaking of Captain America, he made quite the mess in The Winter Soldier, sending the helicarriers crashing down into the Triskelion building. A mess like that would not only need to have a huge investigation, but takes months of clean-up as well. The MCU is so in control of their that they pay attention to every single little detail -- right down to the books that characters are reading during scenes. For example, take a look at the gym class scene during Spider-Man: Homecoming. MJ’s rebellious side is showcased in the scene as she reads a book during a class where you’re supposed to be active. Since all that hard work went into creating these small details, let’s honor them all by looking back at little moments including Thor’s touching dedication to Loki and the way Spider-Man: Homecoming connects to Captain America besides the high school gym class video.

Playing Pennywise in IT and IT Chapter 2 changed Bill Skarsgard forever. Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant Acting can be quite an interesting profession, all things considered.Throwing yourself into a role, embodying a character completely, it's something that takes true talent and drive. Two things that Pennywise himself, Bill Skarsgard, has in spades. However, acting can also be an unexpectedly dangerous craft, with characters sometimes leaving lasting impacts on an actor’s psyche. Sure, acting isn’t dangerous like being a soldier or deep sea welder or lion tamer, but it's a different kind of dangerous. Especially when the character is as out there and fully realized as Pennywise. And Pennywise definitely has left its mark on Skarsgard, in ways you might not expect. Not sure what we mean? Well, keep watching and find out how Pennywise, has changed Skarsgard’s life.

Fast And Furious Exists In An Alternate Reality

The Fast and Furious franchise breaks all the laws pf physics, and then some... Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant Fictional movies are known for stretching the barriers of possibility and being a little unrealistic from time to time. There’s also different franchises that offer different universes, which often includes their own unique set of rules. There’s the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where wizards, intergalactic space monsters, and time travel are all pretty much the norm. Or there’s the Star Wars universe, where sentient robots and giant furry friends are friends and allies. However, there’s probably no movie reality more messed up that the Fast And The Furious franchise. It’s hands down the most absurd of them all; a place where all logic goes out the window and pretty much anything is possible. You don’t see expensive sports cars driving through one high-rise building into another one in Star Wars, do you? I didn’t think so. There’s definitely something very weird going on with The Fast And The Furious, and Screen Rant is here to dig into what that is.
