JOKER May Be Taking Aim At An R-Rating As Some Smaller Female Roles Will Reportedly Involve Nudity

There have been rumblings that Warner Bros. is taking Joker down a pretty dark route but some new details about the production may confirm that it will be an R-Rated origin story for the Batman villain.

According to a new report, Todd Phillips' Joker movie will begin shooting in New York City on September 22nd with production expected to wrap between December and February. That puts it well on track to meet its 2019 release date, but the big news here surprisingly comes in regards to some minor roles Warner Bros. is currently looking to cast for the iconic villain's standalone origin story. 

It's said that nudity will be involved in some smaller female roles and that obviously means Joker would be labelled with an R-Rating, something which makes sense given the talent involved and the few details we've learned in recent weeks. That would also help differentiate it from The Joker movie in the works starring Jared Leto which would probably take aim at PG-13 rating similar to Suicide Squad
 
The movie is set to focus on the Clown Prince of Crime during his days as a failed stand up comedian and many comics in the 1980s would perform in strip clubs so it sounds like Phillips is going to try and make this movie as authentic as possible. The rating isn't confirmed as of right now, though, and these "strippers" could end up in underwear! We'll have to wait and see, but for now share your thoughts below.
