The latest issue of Empire Magazine sports Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker grinning as the Clown Prince of Crime.
It’s possible with Warner Bros. skipping out on this month’s San Diego Comic-Con, that maybe they will release a new Joker trailer to go along with the release and featured article from the magazine.
Update: Director Todd Phillips also posted Joker cover images on Instagram.
Joaquin Phoenix Joker gets released in October
Joker is confirmed to be Rated-R and has an October 4, 2019 release date directed by Todd Phillips and stars Joaquin Phoenix as the titular character and Arthur Fleck, Zazie Beetz as a single mother and the love interest of Joker, Robert DeNiro as a talk show host, Marc Maron is the agent responsible for getting the Joker on DeNiro’s talk show, with the film also starring Frances Conroy, Josh Pais, Bill Camp, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Shea Whigham, and Bret Cullen as Thomas Wayne.
The Joker origin movie centers around the iconic arch-nemesis of Batman and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of a man disregarded by society is not only a gritty character study but also a broader cautionary tale. The film follows the transformation of a struggling stand-up comedian to a full-blown criminal force of nature.
