Not that we've seen anything of too much heaviness from Joker director Todd Phillips, best known for the Hangover trilogy and Old School. Now it's unclear if Scorsese is actually going to be a credited producer on Joker, but his regular partners Emma Tillinger Koskoff and Richard Baratta (both collaborators on The Wolf of Wall Street and the upcoming The Irishman) are on board.

The Joker's appearances in previous DC Comics films are often obscured with mystery, allowing viewers to create their own backstory for the character instead of having it explicitly laid out.

Jared Leto played the most recent incarnation of the character in 2016's Suicide Squad.
