Actor Robert Pattinson has said that fans shouldn't expect Joaquin Phoenix's Joker to make an appearance in the upcoming Batman film. "It's kind of a different world," the actor told Yahoo about Joker, adding that he hadn't seen the film yet, but that he is looking forward to it.
"I might watch it tonight! Joaquin is the best — he's awesome in everything," he said. Pattinson will play Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming film, directed by Matt Reeves. Phoenix played a new version of the iconic villain in the recent box office success, Joker, directed by Todd Phillips.
While both Phoenix and Phillips had said that they weren't interested in making sequels to the film, they've begun teasing the possibility of a follow-up in recent weeks. Phillips, meanwhile, has been quick to deny any chance of Joker facing off against Batman in the future. "We would never do that," he told in a recent interview. "No, no. We'd just want to see where he goes from there."
