Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker movie is currently filming in New York City. Phoenix is set to star as Arthur Fleck, the man who eventually becomes DC’s Clown Prince of Crime after the downfall of his stand-up comedy career. The first image of Phoenix in clown makeup has already hit the web but that hasn’t stopped more stills from coming our way.
Now, director Todd Phillips has shared a new image on Instagram of the iconic Batman villain wearing the clownish facepaint. The picture in question shows Phoenix’s Joker donning a traditional clown outfit along with a green clown wig. Phillips simply captioned the picture as “work”. You can check out the picture below.
Last week, Phillips posted the first official picture of Zazie Beetz’s character in the Joker movie on Instagram. In The Joker, Beetz plays a hardened single mother Sophie Dumond who is touted as a love interest for Arthur Fleck.
Another picture that is making rounds on the internet is that of a vintage-looking Gotham City Police car being transported via a trailer, presumably to the film’s New York City shoot. It is expected that the Police car will be used for filming a bank robbery scene.
Based in the ’80s, the Joker movie is described as an “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study but also a broader cautionary tale.”
The upcoming film is expected to be darker and more experimental in tone as compared to previous DC comic book films. Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy, and Marc Maron are some of the other actors who will feature alongside Phoenix and Beetz in the Joker movie. The film is eyeing an R-rating as it will showcase the real-life world of stand-up comedians who also perform in strip clubs.
The Joker movie is scheduled to debut in theaters on October 4, 2019.
