Here he is, director Todd Phillips shared an early look at Joaquin Phoenix as Joker in the self-titled origin story. The below photo gives us our first taste of the character “Arthur Fleck” out of his iconic makeup and without green hair.
While story details are being kept under wraps, it has been previously reported that the origin story for Batman’s nemesis will be more of a mid-budget crime thriller than a superhero blockbuster. The film will reportedly be made on a $55 million production budget, with it being described as “darker and more experimental in tone and content.”
Frances Conroy, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz and Marc Maron also star.
Phillips is writing and directing for Warner Bros., the film set to arrive on Oct. 4, 2019.
