‘Joker’ co-star Marc Maron who has openly been anti “Comic book” movies, has decided to speak out about his upcoming film amid backlash for being a hypocrite about joining the cast of Phillips ‘Joker.’  Maron says Todd Phillips has created more of an origin story, that will follow a mentally ill man, who eventually becomes the Joker. It sounds as if the film will downplay the comic book side and be a more gritty character study:

“The approach that Todd Phillips has taken is more of an origin story and a character study of a mentally ill person that becomes The Joker. It’s more of an intimate and gritty movie with a very specific scope. It’s going to be really interesting to see how it comes out.”

Maron went on further to clarify exactly why he went back on his ideals about comic book films:

“I think it’s a very interesting approach to this world,” Maron explained. “I’ve been somewhat judgemental when it comes to comic book movies and I’ve got a little pushback in the press for being a hypocrite. Whatever I think, if you get a call and someone says, ‘Hey do you wanna do a scene with Robert De Niro and Joaquin Phoenix?’ your principals fall to the wayside.
