The first look at Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker

September 17, 2018

What do you think about the first official image of Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker? Also, what do you think of the idea of this being an “origins” movie?


Director Todd Phillips posted the above photo on his Instagram page with the caption simply “Arthur” (does this confirm a rumour that The Joker’s real name is Arthur Fleck?).

The movie is called “Joker” and should hit theatres October 4, 2019.

Did you hear that Robert DeNiro will star as a talk show host who plays a key role in the Joker’s development? Phoenix and DeNiro together. Two heavyweights.

Gotta love what Phoenix said to a critic of his forthcoming portrayal of The Joker, “I don’t really think that much about what people think. Who cares, who cares?”

Well said Joaquin. Well said.
