There is a lot unknown about Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker film, but actor and comedian Marc Maron shared a story about one of his experiences with Robert De Niro.
It has been known for some time that both Marc Maron and Robert De Niro would both be appearing in Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker film. As it turns out, the two both appeared in a scene together too. While appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Marc Maron broke down his experience with Robert De Niro. The scene was apparently a “walk and talk scene” that Marc Maron took a little too seriously. When they finished filming the scene, Robert De Niro had director Todd Phillips tell Marc Maron to calm down, much to his shock.
You can see the full video of Marc Maron sharing his Robert De Niro story on the set of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker below:
Currently, we do not know much about Robert De Niro’s and Marc Maron’s characters in Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker. The film is said to be taking a degree of inspiration from the Robert De Niro/Martin Scorsese film, The King of Comedy where Robert De Niro played a struggling comedic who took a late-night talkshow host hostage in order to do his bit. The role itself is said to be a tribute to that film with De Niro playing a talk show host. So it is possible that the scene that Marc Maron was referencing has a lot to do with the film’s tribute.

Here is a plot synopsis for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker:
Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.
Joker will be released in theaters on October 4, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker and the future of the DC slate as we learn it.
