  • Joaquin Phoenix's Joker Makeup Revealed in Camera Test Video

Pictures' Joker, starring Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, alongside Oscar victor Robert De Niro, and directed, produced and co-written by Oscar nominee Todd Phillips. In the new video, we see solemn, unsmiling Arthur give in to the Joker's signature sneer. I'm surprised that we received this look so early on during production, but leaks were likely imminent as filming is well underway. With The Hangover's Todd Phillips as the film's director, we are guaranteed to get a never-before-seen look at one of the franchise's most iconic villains.

Joaquin Phoenix's debut image for the the standalone Joker movie from Warner Bros. wasn't quite what fans expect, instead showing a somewhat goofy, greasy-haired and haggard middle-aged man.

The Instagram video shows Phoenix standing expressionless before cracking a smile and cutting to him in full clown makeup, according to the New York Post.


With just a few frames to go by, even in full makeup, it looks like Phoenix's transformation to play the Batman arch-nemesis will be a bit more muted than was the case for Heath Ledger's or Jared Leto's past iterations of the character.

The movie is now being filmed in NYC in Harlem, which is doubling for Gotham City set in the 1980s and Amusement Mile.

Currently, the film is in production and will star Joaquin Phoenix and Robert De Niro with an October 4, 2019 release date. In it, Phoenix's character Arthur Fleck seems to have colored his long hair green.
