Joker: Joaquin Phoenix Had a Hilarious Suggestion for the Movie's Credits

Unlike many comic book movies, Todd Phillips' Joker lacked an end-credits scene. However, Phillips has now revealed star Joaquin Phoenix -- who plays the Clown Prince of Crime in the film -- gave a potentially hilarious suggestion for the credits.

Speaking to GamesRadar, Phillips revealed why he didn't want Joker to have a post-credits scene and Phoenix's suggestion for an alternative, saying, "The idea of a post-credits scene in this movie would seem wrong, and a little too light for me. That wouldn't have been something we did. But Joaquin [Phoenix] said it would be funny to put bloopers alongside the names like they did in the old days."

Although Joker does not have any bloopers over the credits, the practice was once a popular way to end many films, though they admittedly tend to have a lighter tone than what Phillips' dark movie was going for. Still, the lack of a post-credits scene makes Joker one of the few modern comic book movies to avoid the trope.

Directed by Todd Phillips, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais and Shea Whigham. The film is in theaters now.
