Joaquin Phoenix As ‘Joker’ Screen Test Revealed, Twitter Debates

Source: Warner Bros. / Warner Bros.

Joaquin Phoenix is the Joker within the forthcoming origin movie from Warner Bros. While we received a take a look at the actor on set this previous weekend, right now (Sept. 21), followers received blessed with a tease of the actor in full Joker make-up. 

Phoenix stars the title function alongside Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro, whereas the movie is directed, produced and co-written by the Oscar-nominated Todd Phillips.

The video shared by director Todd Philips is named a “digital camera take a look at with sound” of the Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) character within the movie. Described as “a person disregarded by society,” that is who will ultimately turn into the Batman’s biggest and deadliest foe in a movie that reveals “not solely a gritty character examine, but in addition a broader cautionary story,” per Warner Bros.

Unless you’re already afraid of clowns, the look doesn’t precisely encourage concern. But it's only a “take a look at” so we are able to’t make sure that is what the right Joker will truly seem like within the movie. In the comics, the Joker’s pure pores and skin tone is chalky white whereas his treacherous leer doesn’t require any make-up.

Now if bumped into Phoenix strolling down a darkish road dressed like this, he's catching a correct fade, and we’ll ask questions later.

Joker is due in theaters October Four, 2019. Check out Twitter reactions to the reveal within the gallery.
