Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Makeup Revealed

The Dark Knight Bank Heist Joker Mask

But now, Phillips has offered fans the first real look at Phoenix in full Joker mode. Though the choice to have a look similar to that of Cesar Romero's Joker shows that this Clown Prince of Crime won't be dipping from just one source of inspiration. The short video nearly plays like a teaser trailer, with The Guess Who's song, Laughing, playing in the background. Phoenix's Joker appears to be a step back from Jared Leto's "Damaged" Joker from Suicide Squad. I'm surprised that we received this look so early on during production, but leaks were likely imminent as filming is well underway. It is described as "not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale" and is set for release on October 4th, 2019.

Robert De Niro is in talks to join the movie as a talk-show host who plays a role in driving Phoenix's character to madness.

What can we learn from this brief camera test? Growing in frequency, the lights turn into a faint projected image of Arthur in Joker makeup before completely replacing him with our first full look at director Todd Phillip's version of the iconic Batman villain.


"Phillips" Joker movie is reportedly inspired by Martin Scorsese's The King of Comedy and Taxi Driver.

Joker is shaping up to be a standalone, possibly R-rated film that doesn't tie into previous DC Comics movies. Up until now, we've only seen Joaquin Phoenix in his Arthur Fleck days both in set pictures and in a portrait released by Phillips himself.
