Joaquin Phoenix will star in ‘Joker’, an origin story for Batman’s nemesis, and now we have a first look at the actor in makeup.
In a strange move Warner Bros. are working on a standalone origin movie for the Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix as well as another film about the character with Jared Leto reprising the role he first played in the terribly received ‘Suicide Squad’.
Details of this film simply titled ‘Joker’, at this time, have been slowly drip-fed to the movie going public.
We know that the character will be called Arthur, but since the film was announced fans have been curious about the Joker’s most infamous feature. His face makeup.
We need wait no more as a social media post from filmmaker Todd Phillips with the caption “Camera test (w/ sound). Joker” reveals the look.

It’s something of a classic take on the Joker’s look, but made all the more chilling by Joaquin Phoenix’s demeanour. ‘Joker’ is set to hit cinemas on the 4th of October 2019 with plenty more casting news to come.
