Movies Joaquin Phoenix As The Joker

Todd Phillips Reveals First Look at Joaquin Phoenix in ‘Joker’ Movie

'Joker': First Look at Joaquin Phoenix in Character

It's not much, just a single word and a photo on Instagram, but director Todd Phillips has given us the first indication of what we can expect from his upcoming film about The Joker. According to Phillips' post, Phoenix's character will be called Arthur. 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.

Does this Arthur mug shot give you more confidence in the pre-Joker film, or are you keeping your reservations at bay? He boops him. It's cute. Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Marc Maron and Bryan Callen are also set to star in the Martin Scorsese production.

You see how it changed the game, and I know there's an emphasis on protecting quarterbacks, but it's gotten out of control here. However, linebacker Clay Matthews was flagged for roughing the passer, and you can be the judge of this one.

In July, the Inquisitr first reported that Warner Bros. was developing a film based on the DC Comics villain.

Reddit user cameron_w_robertson created the "quick mashup", transforming Arthur into the Clown Prince of Crime.

Death toll rises to 11 as Florence pours on the rain
Cruise ships have diverted to Florida away from the storm's path, and some hotels are offering special discounts for evacuees. Officials had warned before the storm that the rains could risk tainting waterways with murky coal ash and toxic hog waste.

The film is scheduled for release on October 4, 2019. It's made even more interesting when (huzzah!) you realise the film is being made with no connection to the broader slate of DC Universe films.

A set of images of Joaquin on set were also shared on JustJared where Phoenix can be seen laughing manically and playing with a clown. "And so I think that's what Todd sees appealing about this idea". Gone is the make up and dyed green hair, and instead, Phoenix looks dishevelled in drab clothing. This movie will look at the origins of the Joker as a "man disregarded by society", Phillips has said.
