Joaquin Phoenix’s New Joker is Revealed

There’s been lots of discussion, both good and bad, about net year’s Joker which will star Joaquin Phoenix. The film is being directed by Todd Phillips and also features Robert De Niro. Phillips is a co-writer along with Scott Silver and being produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner along with Emmal Tillinger Koskoff. We now have our first look at Phoenix with and without the makeup.

Joker centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

The film also stars Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.

Joker is out October 4, 2019.
