"I wouldn't have thought of this as my dream role," Phoenix said. "But now, honestly, I can't stop thinking about it.

"I talked to [director] Todd a lot about what else we might be able to do, in general, just working together, but also specifically, if there's something else we can do with Joker that might be interesting.
