Zazie Beetz’ streak of good luck is not over yet! From her role as Domino in Deadpool 2, she is in talks to join another superhero (or supervillain) movie. Warner Bros’ Joker is in the making, with Joaquin Phoenix in the title role as the ultimate supervillain clown.
This film is a standalone film, separate from the current big-screen run of the DC Cinematic Universe (Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, etc). Phoenix has large shoes to fill, as the late Heath Ledger put his everything into the role and became the most legendary joker of the century.
According to reports, Beetz is in talks to star as “a single mother who catches the interest of the man” who would one day become the Joker. Beetz can also be seen in Donald Glover-produced TV series Atlanta, as Donald Glover’s character’s love interest.
