First Look of Joaquin Phoenix As the Joker

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

Todd Phillips, director of the upcoming Joker standalone movie, posted the first official photo of Joaquin Phoenix as the title character to his Instagram account Sunday. But today, Phillips at least gave us a glimpse into this enigmatic film, releasing the first look at Joaquin Phoenix as, presumably, the man who will become the Clown Prince of Crime.

The photo depicts Phoenix wearing a green jacket and with long hair, but without the Joker's trademark makeup. For, uh, certain variations of cute.

Phillips captioned the image with just "Arthur", evidently this iteration of the Joker's name before he took on his mononym.

The importance of Thomas Wayne in the story appeared to be confirmed in August, when Alec Baldwin was reportedly cast in the role. That's fitting, because Scorsese is also co-producing the Joker movie.

To film buffs tired of the many superhero tropes within the genre, Phoenix reassured Collider that it was unlike anything before it. "I wouldn't say it's a superhero movie, or a studio movie or a..."

Early rumors indicate Phoenix's Arthur and Joker will be a stand-up comedian. "And sometimes that is uncovered and exposed, and sometimes it isn't, and so I always felt, like, there were characters in comics that were really interesting and deserve the opportunity to be kind of studied".

The film is due to be released in October 2019 and will stand on its own (so, no clashes with Jared Leto's Joker or DC's other films).
