‘Joker’: New Set Pic Shows Joaquin Phoenix As Clown Prince Of Crime Taking A Smoke Break

The production and filming work on Joaquin Phoenix’s upcoming Joker movie is currently underway. A lot of the film’s set pictures and videos have already flooded the web, all thanks to fans. The Joker director Todd Phillips also often takes it to his Instagram account to post pictures from the film.

This time Phillips has shared a picture of Phoenix taking a quick smoke break during filming while dressed in the full Joker avatar. The actor is wearing a red-color suit and appears to have the same face paint on that we have seen in earlier set photos and videos. You can check out the post below.

A Reddit post that popped up online recently suggests Arthur Fleck’s make-up idea for the Joker movie might have been picked from some concept art for Christopher Nolan’s 2008 film, The Dark Knight. The post compares two pictures, one featuring Phoenix’s clown prince of crime and the other featuring a bald, white-faced figure that has similar blue patterns around his eyes and some red on his nose.

Set to take place in Gotham City during the 1980s, the Joker movie will depict the origin story of the character, Arthur Fleck, who eventually turns into the Clown Prince of Crime after failing as a stand-up comedian. The film’s story has been inspired by Alan Moore’s comic book The Killing Joke and the 1982 film The King of Comedy. The makers are eyeing an R-rating for the movie as it will likely showcase stand-up comedians performing in strip clubs.

Director Todd Phillips has also co-written the film’s script along with Scott Silver. Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix as the infamous criminal mastermind, Zazie Beetz as Arthur’s love interest Sophie Dumond along with Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Josh Pais, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, and Shea Whigham.

Joker is set to arrive in theaters on October 4, 2019.
