First look of Joaquin Phoenix as ‘Joker’ out!

New Delhi: American director Todd Phillips unveiled the first look of actor Joaquin Phoenix in his upcoming untitled film about the Joker.

In a short screen test video shared on Instagram, Phoenix can be seen staring blankly into the camera before cracking a slight smile until his face is interspersed with images of him as the Joker.

The camera then flashes to Phoenix, whose character is named Arthur, wearing clown makeup instead of the traditional white face and green hair.

Scheduled to release on October 4, the film will also star Robert De Niro, Deadpool 2 breakout Zazie Beetz and GLOW actor Marc Maron.
