First Official Look at Joaquin Phoenix as the Future JOKER

Warner Bros. has begun production on its Joker movie, which stars Joaquin Phoenix as the future villain in a new origin story. While we wait for a press release announcing the start of filming, we have a first-look photo from the movie.

Director Todd Phillips shared a first look at Phoenix's character, named Arthur Fleck. Fleck is clearly lacking the Joker's signature makeup and green hair, but that's kind of the point. The movie will be a character study that examines Fleck's descent into madness, and it is expected to be extremely different from past Jokers.

Check it out below, and stay tuned for more as we have it.
