On October 4, 2019, will come to theaters the tape that will address the origins of the character.
Less than a week after the first images of Joaquin Phoenix were shared in his interpretation of The Joker, on Friday they released the image of the actor but with the characteristic makeup of the character.
The first images of actor Joaquin Phoenix were revealed as Joker, the villain of DC Comics and eternal enemy of Batman.
After those images, which made the hype grow around the film and in which Phoenix appeared street dress without the classic makeup that characterizes the villain, fans on social networks went crazy with what you can expect on October 4, 2019, the date on which the film will be released.
It was the film’s own director, Todd Phillips, who shared a video of Joaquin Phoenix transforming into Joker who in the new film will be called Arthur Peck and is a failed comedian who takes care of his sick mother.
Todd Phillips, director of the upcoming film about the origin of The Joker, revealed in his Instagram account a video of the actor with the characterization that everyone expected to see.
Just a few days ago we saw the first official image of ‘Joker’, the new movie about the villain of DC Comics. Today, the director Todd Philips has revealed a brief teaser in the form of a camera test and in this video we can see something that the fans missed in the previous photo: Joaquin Phoenix with the characteristic clown makeup of the villain.
Phoenix appears as “Arthur” until it is interspersed with images of The Joker. The camera zooms in until it centers its face of the smiling villain with a white cloak of makeup and red lips.
The video was set with the song “Laughing” by the Canadian band The Guess Who.
The video published by the director is accompanied by the song Laughing by the Canadian band The Guess Who.
The Joker will premiere on October 4 and in addition to Phoenix will feature the performances of Robert De Niro, Marc Maron, and Frances Conroy, among others.
On October 4, 2019, the film that will address the origins of the character and that began filming this month in New York will arrive in theaters.
In this prequel, independent of the rest of the DC Universe, we will know the origins of the Joker. The story centers on Arthur Fleck ( Joaquin Phoenix ), a failed comic that will end up becoming the biggest threat in Gotham City, although this time we will not see anything of his classic battles with Batman. The cast is completed by Robert de Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, and Marc Maron, among others.
To the rhythm of the song ‘Laughing’ by The Guess Who – it feels like a fable to the footage, for obvious reasons – we can see how in a matter of seconds the actor transforms himself into the Clown Prince of Crime, changing his expression until he ends up with a face serious and threatening. It is clear with these first glimpses that Phillips and Phoenix have at hand a very different film within the genre of comic book adaptations. And that’s to thank.
The film will focus on the origin of the iconic archenemy in a way not seen before on screen. The filmmaker will portray, according to the official synopsis, “a man marginalized by society, who will not only focus on the description of his crude character but will turn it into a broader story in the form of a cautionary tale”.
Joker’ opens in theaters on October 4, 2019. On the other hand, Warner is betting on Jared Leto in the skin of the same character as Phoenix, with his own interpretation. Apparently, the studio has already agreed with Leto a spin-off on his Joker, which should also appear in the sequel to ‘Suicide Squad’.
