A few days back, we covered an interesting news piece revolving around an outlet retracting a statement from actor Robert Pattinson regarding Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker. While we had no indication of what the quote was, the fact that Pattinson requested it be redacted did seem to indicate that perhaps it could involve his Batman crossing over with the Joker in some meaningful way.

Of course, the majority of that is pure speculation on our part, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say it wasn’t a bit odd how the outlet actually mentioned that the retraction involved a “mundane comment” about Joaquin Phoenix, seemingly hinting at something bigger. But, if you were holding out hope to see the two cross paths…don’t hold your breath.

During a red carpet interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, Joker director Todd Phillips was asked whether or not he can see Phoenix’s Joker and Pattinson’s Batman crossing paths to which he responded unequivocally, “No, definitely not.”

Color me sad on that front. What do you think of this impossibility? Do you believe Phillips? Let us know your thoughts down below!
