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+.

'Black Widow' & 'Cruella' to Debut on Disney+, Many Release Dates Altered

Disney is altering their plans.

The company announced that Marvel‘s Black Widow has shifted to a July 9 release date from May 7, and will debut on Disney+ and in theaters simultaneously. Cruella, the next big live action film starring Emma Stone, will still debut on May 28 but will also be available to stream on Disney+ and in theaters.

These two films will cost $30 to watch at home, on top of the Disney+ monthly fee.

Because of these moves, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has been moved from July 9 to September 3, 2021.

Pixar’s next hit, Luca, will also debut on Disney+ exclusively for no extra fee on June 18.

The following other films were delayed: Free Guy (August 13), The King’s Man (December 22), Deep Water (January 14, 2022) and Death on the Nile (Feb. 11, 2022) were all moved.

Black Widow was the biggest Marvel movie impacted by the pandemic, as it was originally supposed to be released last May and has moved several times. It looks like the Scarlett Johansson-starrer will finally be seen this summer.

The Cruella trailer is huge!

The trailer for the Emma Stone-led Disney live-action feature debuted on February 17, and brought in 71 million views in its first 24 hours, Deadline reported Sunday (February 21).

Here’s a synopsis: “set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, Cruella follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets.
