Joker Director Claims Any Presumed DC Easter Eggs Are a Mistake
Easter eggs from DC Comics or DCEU found in Joker did not not intentionally manufactured. Director Todd Phillips revealed this fact in a new interview. DC fans spotted so-called references to Heath Ledger's stance on the clown crime prince and even Jack Nicholson's portrayal of the villain in Tim Burton's Batman . However, it seems that Phillips or star Joaquin Phoenix did not do it on purpose. This does not mean that there is no reference to Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy because there is one.
Todd Phillips was asked about Easter eggs in Joker . "I do not make Easter eggs – any Easter egg that we find is a mistake, I do not understand," says Phillips. Joaquin Phoenix also talked about Easter Eggs in the same interview, noting that many fans and the press had noticed that some of the movie's clocks were set at 11:11. Phoenix had this to say about clocks and Easter eggs in general.
"I was telling the latest press that they asked me about the clock and at 11:11 and I said:" Paul is dead. "And it was like," What? "I said:" Paul is dead. "He says," I do not know. "And l & rsquo; Another guy who looked like my age was telling me: "It's a reference to the Beatles, man." These are the f ** king aged 22, they do not know that "Paul is dead". I'm going to, "You see what you want to see, you hear what you want to hear." Everyone thought it said, "Paul is dead" in reverse and shit.
Joaquin Phoenix refers to the myth surrounding the Beatles and Paul McCartney. It is said that McCartney was in fact killed in a car accident before the release of their 1966 album Revolver and that the group had hired a replacement double to take his place. Later albums would have hidden clues to prove the veracity of this myth. John Lennon has played with many times throughout his life for fun and excite fans. When it is Joker the 11:11 thing is nothing. "But this 11:11 is not an Easter egg for me," Todd Phillips said. and writes a theory that the film takes place at Bizarro World and that Arthur Fleck will eventually become Batzarro. It's a wild theory and it's probably fun to speculate, but that's not going to happen. Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix have stated from the beginning that Joker would be self-contained and would be his own thing.
Bound: Joker quietly lost Martin Scorsese, while did he really pass?
You have it. All the Assumed Joker Easter eggs were not made on purpose and they are only pure coincidence, at least according to Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix. But who could know it better than them? The film is currently theatrical and grossed $ 281.6 million worldwide in just one week. This weekend, the Prince of Crime clown will probably top the box office for the second consecutive weekend. The Phillips and Phoenix interview was originally conducted by Collider.
