Here's our first look at Joaquin Phoenix's Joker in full make-up

First Look: Joaquin Phoenix in Full Joker Makeup

It will be interesting to see if this is how Joaquin Phoenix's Joker looks for the duration of the film, but with the film still very early in filming, that's all speculation right now. Pictures' Joker, starring Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, alongside Oscar victor Robert De Niro, and directed, produced and co-written by Oscar nominee Todd Phillips.

I've had my doubts about this project from its inception, but the video itself is promising.

Previous leaked set images and video footage showed off Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck exiting a building, arguing with a clown and then throwing the clown nose down the street. Jared Leto, who played the Clown Prince of Crime in Suicide Squad, is also getting his own movie alongside Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and he's also expected back for a Suicide Squad sequel.

Todd Phillips' Joker is set to be released October 4th 2019.

Jack's will operate a low-cost business model that is created to keep costs low and prices down. Jack's is named after Jack Cohen, who in 1919 founded the business that became Tesco.

From the looks of Phoenix both in and out of makeup, it's certainly shaping up to be an intense - and intensely original - take on the famed villain.

In the screen test shared on Instagram Phoenix stares straight into the camera, cracks a sinister smile before the camera flashes to him wearing the trademark clown makeup.

Phillips (The Hangover trilogy) directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with writer Scott Silver (The Fighter), based on characters from DC. Now, our first glimpse at Phoenix in character - a camera test posted on social media by "Joker" writer-director Todd Phillips - seems to confirm that he's a great choice. "Joker", Phillips captioned the teaser. In addition to its leading man, Joker - which is being produced by Martin Scorsese - also stars Robert De Niro, Marc Maron, Frances Conroy and Zazie Beetz.
