Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker is officially underway with the commencement of its production and now a video from its set has just surfaced the internet.

Daily Mail posted this set-video from the ‘Joker’ film which proves that this story is not going to be something that comic fans might get off the bat.

The video is long and features Phoenix as The Joker. As suggested by the reports, Phoenix will play Arthur Fleck, a failed standup who turns to the world of crime after his comical aspirations get thrashed. The video features a tense encounter of Arthur and a clown and fans can already spot the comic allusion already.

The video shows a long-haired Arthur walking out of The Ha-Ha Talent Agency, smoking a cigarette. As he walks down the street, he sees a half-dressed clown hobbling out of The Ha-Ha agency. As the face each other, we can see Arthur giving off disturbing expressions and even pulling a Joker-worthy chuckle. Even without the traditional Joker makeup, Phoenix can be seen channelling the Joker vibes real hard.

The video ends with Phoenix approaching the clown and ripping his fake nose off. This leaves us confused with what the conflict between the two was all about. The film will serve as an origin story to the iconic villain’s life after his stand-up comedy career falls flat.

“I wouldn’t quite classify this as like any genre,” Phoenix said. “I wouldn’t say it’s a superhero movie, or a studio movie or a … It feels unique, and I think more than anything, and probably the most important thing, is Todd seems very passionate about it and very giving, and so that’s exciting.”

“I think, underneath the excitement of these films, and the size of them, there are these incredible characters that are dealing with real life struggles. And sometimes that is uncovered and exposed, and sometimes it isn’t, and so I always felt, like, there were characters in comics that were really interesting and deserve the opportunity to be kind of study. And so I think that’s what Todd sees appealing about this idea.”
