Warner Bros. has released a 20+-minute behind-the-scenes featurette on the background of its Oscar-winning film Joker, including an examination of how the DC-based project came to be.
Director/co-writer Todd Phillips, star Joaquin Phoenix, and more weigh in on the film, exlaining the motivations behind the depiction and story.
"I just love bad guys," Phillips explains. "It's fun to say, 'Well why is he like that? What made him that way?' That's ultimately really what the goal of the movie is, not this gigantic statement on the world today. There is stuff thematically in there, but it's about what makes somebody that way."
