Joaquin meets Phoenix’s Arthur Flick Joker and Robert Pattinson’s soon-to-be debut Batman in the film Bruce Wayne in a brand new fan-made poster. Todd Phillips’ initial suspicion though the DC film was both a box office and critical success from last year. The Joker Rajkumar of the standalone film Crime gave a definite big-screen original story. While there is no word yet on whether or not fans will see him again, there is something that is holding out hope that somehow, he encounters his arch-nemesis, the Caped Warrior.
Joker’s events take place in a reality different from the DCEU. And with rumours that Matt Reeves will follow the upcoming Batman standalone suit, some people are wondering if there is a chance that Fleck and Pattinson Bruce will find themselves entangled with each other. Warner Bros. remains mum about the case as they deliberately keep the plot unique for the much-anticipated standalone film under wraps, but imagine it as what a Fleck / Wayne face-off might look like. Evidence from the new fan-made artwork does not stop some fans.
Alex Kovalenko took to his Instagram account to imagine an encounter between new versions of Batman and the Joker, sharing an example of the two. The image shows that the meeting will take place in Reeves’ Batman, while the illustration’s background is clearly from the move seen in the now-iconic Phillips Joker. Check your creation below:
The Joker’s look is based on the final appearance of the Phoenix flick, but even more impressive is the presence of Batman on the image. Caped’s warrior appearance is inspired by the latest images from the set of Batman, where fans were finally given their first look at Pattinson’s full costume. Before the photos making the rounds online, Reeves already debuted the suit in a Joker-esque screen test. However, since the official clip revealed only Pattinson’s face and his upper chest, a look at the overall armour of the public did not get up to the set images. It is worth noting, however, that the said photos did not feature Pattinson, but his stunt double images rolled out just like before.
Whether or not a fan-made version of the art comes to enjoy is still a big mystery. As previously stated, there is no official word yet about how Batman would factor into DCEU, if at all. Also, there is the issue of setting. The Joker is set in the ’80s, just around the time Thomas and Martha Wayne were brutally murdered. The film also featured a young Bruce Wayne when Fleck is already an older man. So as long as Pattinson’s version of the character from his solo flick is the same from that period piece, he can be quite difficult to pull through the look together.
