Joaquin Phoenix is on a promotional tour ahead of the premiere of ‘Joker’, in which he delivers a performance that’s already generating buzz for his portrayal of Batman’s most iconic nemesis.

Recently, when speaking with Joaquin Phoenix, The Telegraph asked the ‘Gladiator’ star if he believed that certain parts of the film “might perversely end up inspiring exactly the kind of people it’s about, with potentially tragic results.”

The 44-year-old ‘Her’ actor after hearing, appeared to look puzzled while questioning the interviewer about the purpose of this question, and without even waiting for a reply walked out of the interview.

Warner Bros.’ PR team came to the rescue and got Phoenix back into the hot seat, and he indirectly answered the question by replying how he had never considered such an idea.

Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, ‘Joker’ stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.

‘Joker’ will be slated for release in theatres on October 4.
