Behold the first look at Joaquin Phoenix in full Joker makeup

Phoenix transforms from Arthur Fleck into the clown prince of crime in a new video from director Todd Phillips


Thanks to previously released photos we’ve been given a look at what Joaquin Phoenix will look like as the seemingly mild-mannered Arthur Fleck in the upcoming Todd Phillips directed Joker film. Now we get a look at what Fleck will look like as he descends into madness to become Batman’s greatest nemesis.

Phillips took to Instagram to share a makeup test featuring Phoenix as Fleck as The Guess Who’s “Laughing” plays leading up to a gradual change that showcases the face painted clown prince of crime in his 80s inspired glory cracking a grin that quickly turns into a cold stare.

Phoenix will bring the Joker to life in a film that is the first in a reported secondary line of DC Films from Warner Bros that stand apart from the shared universe started by Man of Steel. This imprint of films will all be stand alones that don’t rely on what the other films are doing to tell a story, leading to the chance potentially to see many of DC Comics Elseworlds (alternate universe stories) books come to life on the big screen.

Joker stares Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Marc Maron, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, and Bill Camp. It opens on October 04, 2019.
