Since “ Cruella ” finally arrived on the Disney + platform, everyone has been talking about the new movie with live actors based on one of the most important characters of the production company. But something that attracted a lot of attention is the comparison that was made with the film “Joker”.
The DC Comics film that Joaquin Phoenix starred in was a phenomenon, not only in terms of collection but also on the part of specialized critics. The actor’s performance was so applauded by the audience that he even ended up winning the Oscar in the category of Best Leading Actor. But now the actor’s impersonation was compared to that of Emma Stone at the Disney premiere.
The similarities are in the fact that both films seek to tell the origin of two well-known villains of popular culture, with a darker tone, and set in past decades.
The acting transformation and the changes in looks that each actor underwent are also a strong point of comparison. But Emma Stone herself spoke on the subject in one of her most recent interviews.
The public loves villains
The Oscar-winning actress for the film “La La Land” spoke for the medium “Variety”, where she made her opinion on the subject clear. According to the actress, her personification is far from being compared to that of Joaquin Pheonix, whom she admires, and with whom she could never be equaled.
Craig Gillespi, the director of ” Cruella “, was also consulted by the media about the relationship that many have with “Joker”, and said he was flattered by the comparison, but that at no time did he intend that there are similarities or references.
” Cruella ” won the acceptance of the public and, for these hours, is still at the forefront of the most-watched movies in the streaming universe. The launch was exclusive to Disney + for an additional value that users must pay, in addition to which it can be seen in some theaters around the world.
