Joaquin Phoenix Joker
The scenes are currently being filmed in NYC in Harlem, which is doubling for Gotham City set in the 1980s.
In the world of DC Comics, Amusement Mile is the location of a carnival at the north-east corner of Gotham City and is at times the base for the Joker’s gang or the Riddler.
How it plays out in the movie remains to be seen, but the leaked video footage showed Joaquin Phoenix 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’ exploration of a man disregarded by society is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale. The film follows the transformatation 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.
