Here’s Your First Look at Joaquin Phoenix in His ‘Joker’ Makeup

Director shares camera test with Phoenix in character

Director Todd Phillips unveiled a first look at Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck from his upcoming standalone Joker film earlier this week. He followed that up with a glimpse at Phoenix in full makeup over the weekend.

Phoenix will be the sixth actor to play the Clown Prince on the big screen or on TV. He follows Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto, and Cameron Monaghan. Phillips’ Joker is certainly looking like it will be a gritty affair.

Joker is slated to hit theatres on October 4, 2019.
