The Joker standalone film from director Todd Phillips is in production and the first images from the set as well as actor Joaquin Phoenix’s pre-Joker look have been revealed.
Phillips took to Instagram to share the first photo of Joaquin Phoenix in character with a post with the simple title “Arthur”. This would indicate the clown prince of crime’s real name or a possible alias.
JustJared has additional shots from the set of the film and they would indicate that wherever “Arthur” is, clowns are apparently part of the atmosphere.
The film is being described as a gritty character study that showcases a man disregarded by society who becomes its greatest villain.
The Joker is set to be released October 4, 2019.
