First Look of Joaquin Phoenix As the Joker

  • Joaquin Phoenix starrer Joker

It's obvious that Phoenix's Arthur hasn't made the full transition to the Joker based on these set photos, but there's a hint of where hi character might draw inspiration from.

Phoenix, 43, has unkempt, collar-length hair and is wearing a rumpled, button-down shirt and jacket in the picture. Phillips is best-known for directing The Hangover and War Dogs. Though his character Arthur Fleck is not yet donning the Joker's trademark makeup in the footage, the clown element of his arc is already foreshadowed via both the merry-go-round in the background and the red-nosed amusing man who confronts him. There might also be a look at how the Joker is linked to Bruce Wayne's parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne. I might not care for the Joker's origins, but considering Phoenix's reputation for playing freaky and dark characters I at least thought that the casting was spot on and that it could prove to be an interesting movie from that perspective.

Phoenix will be joined by Zazie Beetz and Robert DeNiro, however contrary to previous reports, Alec Baldwin has not signed on to play Batman's father in the film.

Check out the pic of Phoenix in pre-Joker mode.

United Kingdom 'closing in' on Brexit deal with Brussels, suggests Raab
In his column for the Telegraph, Mr Raab said the technical papers would include plans for "protecting consumers from mobile phone roaming charges".

We do not yet have the vintage Joker look of Phoenix yet.

Joker will re-imagine the world of Batman as an '80s crime film with a dark and gritty tone.

In a recent interview with Collider, Phoenix promised that the new film defies the convention of a typical comic book movie. It is the complete opposite of the version that Jared Leto gave to fans, but that look was over-the-top and also turned many fans off.

Joker is filming right now, and is set to be released in October.
