With Joker (2019), DC Comics tasked Todd Phillips to “birth” a new superhero film production after Batman (1989) and triology The Dark Knight (2006-2012). If the previous two revolutions on DC’s superhero movies were all rooted in Batman’s dark knight, this time, they took the bold step when choosing Batman’s antagonist, Joker. The character who started the new era brings his darker color. That’s how big the role of Joker (2019) is and how much the pressure is on Todd Phillips and the crew. And the director, born in 1970, didn’t disappoint his bosses and fans.
