Joaquin Phoenix Joker
Previous leaked set images and video footage showed off¬†Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur¬†Fleck¬†exiting a building, arguing with a clown and then throwing the clown nose down the street.¬†
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‚Äô 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.¬†
The movie stars¬†Robert DeNiro as a talk show host; with¬†Deadpool¬†2's Zazie Beetz playing a single mom who catches the interest of the man who will become the clown prince of crime; Marc Maron is the agent responsible for getting the Joker on DeNiro's talk show, with¬†the film also starring Frances Conroy and Josh Pais.
Joker has an October 4, 2019 release date.¬†
