  • Joaquin Phoenix as Joker

Scott Silver co-wrote the script with Phillips and the film is scheduled to hit theatres on October 4, 2019.

What do you think of the first look at Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker? Phillips is best-known for directing The Hangover and War Dogs.

Joaquin Phoenix is slated to play the title character of Joker, with Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz and Marc Maron playing supporting roles. Arthur is presumably the name of the Joker before he became the Joker.

Check out the pic of Phoenix in pre-Joker mode. There are even set photos out in the wild. After all, the Joker's skinniness is part of what makes him eerie.


Previous depictions of the Clown Prince of Crime had the villain originally with the moniker "Jack" as seen in the 1989 Batman film and the 1993 animated film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

On Instagram, on Sunday, September 16, Phillips officially revealed the first photograph of Phoenix in character, looking weathered and sporting a frightful hairstyle. The green hair, the chalk-white face and an unnaturally wide smile. Emma Tillinger Koskoff is producing the WB/Village Roadshow movie, which Richard Baratta is exec producing. It also boasts a modest $55 million price tag, which is significantly lower than most other tentpole flicks in the genre. For the time being, Jared Leto will continue to play Joker there.

In a recent interview with Collider, Phoenix promised that the new film defies the convention of a typical comic book movie.

The synopsis of the film says, "Under the direction of Todd Phillips, the film centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen". This movie will look at the origins of the Joker as a "man disregarded by society", Phillips has said.
