First Look At Joaquin Phoenix as “Joker” Are Here [VIDEO]
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a NEW Joker! According to USA Today, Joaquin Phoenix will portray “Joker” and is currently in production with Warner Bros. and is expected to be released next year. This “Joker” will be VERY different from the Jokers we’ve seen in the past, Joaquin Phoenix plays a failed stand-up comedian, who goes insane and becomes a murdering psychopath. Director Todd Phillips shared a new video from Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker film on social media, and it’s def giving me old Jack Nicholson Joker vibes! Surprisingly his look has more of a traditional take on character facepaint, completely opposite of Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight version and Jared Leto’s punk rock look in Suicide Squad. Here’s a video that shows the first look of Joaquin Phoenix’s character gradually morphing into The Joker!
