Joaquin Phoenix seems like an odd guy. For years, I’ve thought of him as this incredibly serious actor, but based on his behavior as of late, I can’t help but imagine him as a bit of a goofy prankster. That bit on Jimmy Kimmel where there was a video of him cussing out the cinematographer? I’m fairly confident he knew it was coming and was in on the joke.
But what’s the point of this odd preamble? The point is he’s a goofy guy, and as such, this latest piece of news from director Todd Phillips almost doesn’t surprise me. When asked about doing a post-credits scene for the film by GamesRadar, Phillips said:
“The idea of a post-credits scene in this movie would seem wrong, and a little too light for me. That wouldn’t have been something we did. But Joaquin [Phoenix] said it would be funny to put bloopers alongside the names like they did in the old days.”
Given the old-timey nature of Joker, I can almost see that working…only that the movie itself is deadly serious. So maybe not. More than anything, this just makes me want to know what other interesting ideas Phoenix wants, but what about you?
