Herman Weaver | 17 September, 2018, 10:59

The first image of actor Joaquin Phoenix in the role of the Joker for the upcoming standalone film focused on Batman's nemesis has been revealed. The video shows Phoenix's character of "Arthur" angrily leaving a building and spitting at it. For, uh, certain variations of cute. The photos show Phoenix smiling, with long hair and before his character donned puts on the familiar white make-up and red lipstick. The site went on to suggest that the plot involves Arthur going back to Gotham City to live with his aging mother, and his mind is eventually warped from stand-up comedian to the maniacal criminal. Early word suggests that Joker's tone is being compared to Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy. Baldwin's replacement will join a cast that includes Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) as downtrodden single mother Sophie Dumond, and Marc Maron (GLOW), Frances Conroy (American Horror Story) and Robert De Niro (The Godfather: Part II) in unannounced roles.

Previous depictions of the Clown Prince of Crime had the villain originally with the moniker "Jack" as seen in the 1989 Batman film and the 1993 animated film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Phoenix has been chased by the studios for years to star in one of these things, so that this was the project that caught his eye says a lot.
