A new photo has been shared by Todd Phillips which features Joaquin Phoenix in the forthcoming Joker film. The picture is in black and white, offering a look at the character who looks to be observing something carefully on an old television. This completely fits into the 80s essence of The Joker film.
Synopsis for Joker Film:
“Drama. Joker centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen,” the synopsis for Joker reads. “The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
Here’s the photo posted to his Instagram, which shows Joaquin Phoenix as Joker by Director Todd Phillips:
Todd Phillips has begun production on the film that’s scheduled to release later in 2019.
“The film also stars Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Bill Camp (Red Sparrow, Molly’s Game), Frances Conroy (American Horror Story, Castle Rock), Brett Cullen (42, Narcos), Glenn Fleshler (Billions, Barry), Douglas Hodge (Red Sparrow, Penny Dreadful), Marc Maron (Maron, GLOW), Josh Pais (Motherless Brooklyn, Going in Style), and Shea Whigham (First Man, Kong: Skull Island),” Warner Brothers said in a press release in regards to Joker. “Phillips (The Hangover trilogy) directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with writer Scott Silver (The Fighter), based on characters from DC. The film is being produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. It is executive produced by Richard Baratta, Joseph Garner and Bruce Berman.”
The cast complimented by the studded list of producers. Joker is all set to knock the shoes off of the fans and viewers existing in its own DC universe. The Joker film will not be a part of the mainstream DCEU films, which sees Jared Leto playing the role. Joaquin Phoenix isn’t expected to appear in any of the futufe DC films.
Joker will hit the theaters on October 4, 2019.
