“Joker” to Be First R-Rated, Live-Action “Batman” Movie


Filmmaker Todd Phillips has confirmed the upcoming Joker film, starring Joaquin Phoenix, will be rated R.

“I’ve been asked this a lot,” Phillips replied to a curious fan on Instagram this week. “Just assumed people knew. Sorry.” Consequence of Sound notes that, if Phillips gets his way, the project will be the first live-action Batman film to receive an R-rating.

The only other film in the franchise to receive such a rating was 2016’s animated Batman: The Killing Joke.

Joker hits theaters on October 4 of this year.
