Emma Stone Speaks to 'Cruella' & 'Joker' Comparisons

After the Cruella trailer was released a few weeks ago, fans began comparing the film to Joaquin Phoenix‘s Joker.

“It’s very different from Joker in many ways,” Emma, who stars as the title character in the movie, told Total Film. “I would never even remotely compare myself to Joaquin Phoenix. I wish I was more like him.”

Cruella‘s director, Craig Gillespie, also spoke to the comparisons, saying, “There are some really deep, emotional things that Cruella’s dealing with that send her to the villainous darker side. So in that sense, it is [similar]. But it’s definitely its own thing. Just to sort of reframe Cruella, I thought it was important to show this darker side of her. But there’s going to be a lot of fun, a lot of humor in it. There’s a lot of absolutely delightful banter and rhythm to the style of it, which is different from Joker.”

Find out what fans had to say about the similarities between Joker and Cruella.

Cruella will premiere on May 28 and you’ll be able to stream it for a fee on Disney+.
