Joaquin Phoenix Is No Joke As the ‘Joker’


Having helmed comedy classics Road Trip, Old School, and The Hangover franchise, writer/director Todd Phillips knows a thing or two about jokers. so, it’s with great enthusiasm that we wait to see his standalone Joker movie, starring Joaquin Phoenix as the iconic Batman villain.

Images and video of Phoenix in Joker makeup leaked this week and peeps are divided about the look. Why so serious? It’s not a dramatic makeover — underwhelming for some, exciting for others thrilled by its old school appeal.

Joker is set in New York City during the 70s and offers up an origins story not rooted in previous DC Comics lore, but presented as a “character study and cautionary tale” of a disregarded man.
