Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘Joker’ Fully Revealed, Makeup and Costume, in New Set Photos



Just yesterday, director Todd Phillips shared a short “makeup test” video for next year’s Joker, giving us our first real look at Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime. Today, some more new photos from the surprisingly not-secretive set show off Phoenix’s Joker in all his glory, in full makeup and costume. And we’ve gotta say, he’s looking real damn good in the role.

Check out the set photos below. Get hype.

In addition to the previously announced Frances Conroy, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Marc Maron, and Brett Cullen as Thomas Wayne, we’ve learned this week that the film also stars Bill Camp (Red Sparrow), Shea Whigham (Kong: Skull Island), Glenn Fleshler (“True Detective”), Josh Pais (“Ray Donovan”) and Douglas Hodge (“Penny Dreadful”).

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.”

The screenplay for Joker is co-written by Phillips (The Hangover trilogy) and writer Scott Silver (The Fighter), and based on characters from DC. It’s being produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and Emma Tillinger Koskoff.  It’s executive produced by Richard Baratta, Joseph Garner and Bruce Berman.

The Joker will arrive on October 4, 2019.

Writer in the horror community since 2008. Owns Eli Roth's prop corpse from Piranha 3D. Has three awesome cats. Still plays with toys.
