Believe it or not, it's a new Joker movie on the horizon. As in, it hits theaters on October 4, which is not so far away. October is the perfect month to release a film about a psychopath that plays the dress.
Even if you're not a comic fan, you know who Joker is. Perhaps your first introduction to him was Heath Ledger's haunting depiction in Christopher Nolans The Dark Knight. Or maybe you saw him back in the 1
This level of infamy has driven Joker to become one of the most iconic villains of all time – on a par with Darth Vader from Star Wars and Miss Trunchbull from Matilda. Which makes the upcoming movie from Warner Bros. to a huge deal. Can a movie about Batman's nemesis be interesting?
24. July 2019 – Joaquin Phoenix's Arthur Fleck Gets Mad at Haunting New Joker Images
Warner Bros. this week, new photos from upcoming Joker movies shared, depicting a man whose emotional suffering seems to cause him to become one of the most iconic villains of pop culture.
The pictures do not tell us anything we have not already seen from the first teaser trailer. But they show the wretched Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) experiences and the resulting outbreak of rebellion. The first image at the forefront of this post is particularly shifting, as the Phoenix character seems to respond to something tragic.
It's just wondering from our side – we don't know what kind of emotional turmoil Arthur Fleck endures. But based on what we have learned earlier, it looks like Fleck's position as outcast and his relationship with his mother will play a big role in turning him into the clown prince of crime.
Check out the photos yourself and make your own review. We will see how Joker's back story unfolds when the film hits theaters on October 4, 2019.
3. April 2019 – The Joker trailer: Every secret and Easter egg
We took a deeper dive into the trailer and found some great secrets and Easter eggs. You can read more about what we found in the link below.
Everything we learned about Joaquin Phoenix's Joker movie
3. April 2019 – The Joker trailer debuts Joaquin Phoenix's disturbing roof on the famous DC villain
The first trailer for the Joaquin Phoenix Joker is here, and it's not for the weakness of the heart. The movie promised to be dark, and the trailer peels back every layer of the dark story disturbingly.
Joker is about Arthur Fleck, an idealistic stand up cartoon who has experienced some tough times. As his life takes a turn for the worst, he also makes his mind sink slowly into madness.
"Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there," says Fleck while his world is starting to crumble.  Refreshingly, the trailer does not set the story for us very well, which means there are no spoilers. We only get the shortest of the images of Arthur interacting with the people around him as his mother, possible love interest Sophie Dumon (Zazie Beetz), and shown on Murray Franklin's (Robert De Niro) television program. We get a little taste of Phoenix's interpretation of Joker's iconic laughter. It is maniacal as always.
The trailer makes one thing clear: Arthur Fleck will inevitably get mad and in turn become Joker and bring his new type of madness to Gotham City.
"I used to believe my life was a tragedy," says Fleck. "But now I realize it's a comedy."
Joker hits theaters on October 4.
2. April 2019 – Here is the first Joker poster, the teaser trailer to come tomorrow
Director Todd Phillips has released the first poster for film, and features actor Joaquin Phoenix dressed in full Joker makeup. It is a grim and violent image, in truth, with what appears to be blood in Joker's face.
Along with the poster, Phillips said the movie's first teaser trailer will drop tomorrow, probably early in the morning.
The first teaser trailer for Joker paints a dark image for the movie's titular character, which has entered tough times. Soon, things seem to be overwhelming, which makes Joker fall into madness.
"I used to believe that my life was a tragedy," says Arthur Fleck, who later became Joker. "But now I realize it's a comedy."
Joker release date
Joker hits theaters on October 4, 2019. Unfortunately, Warner Bros. does not have. said how long the movie actually gets. Given that this is an origin story, runtime is expected to be around two hours.
What we know so far is that the movie will take place in the 80s, which means that it will be an origin story and takes place long before the Joker begins to torment Batman. Something that will be interesting because we rarely see one without the other.
Before Joker becomes Joker, he will become known as Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian who is ignored by society. Soon he is driven insane and takes on persona to Joker, a psychotic anarchist who creates devastation over Gotham.
We've seen some pictures from the set indicating that Joker has become the face of a revolution. Apparently, he motivates people to protest against capitalism and the rich, and connect with those who feel under-represented in society.
In comics, movies and video games, Joker has always attracted a certain bunch, and it looks like the latest movie is no different.
Joker plays Joaquin Phoenix, best known for his work in films such as The Gladiator, Inherent Vice and Here. It's a bold choice, but Phoenix has proven itself as a talented actor in a variety of roles, some who can calmly boil with rage and also be tender and vulnerable.

What Happened with Jared Leto ?
Here things become difficult. In Suicide Squad, Joker was played by Jared Leto. Breaking the character's iconic appearance and style, Leto's portrayal Joker made more of a Gothic punk, someone you'd seen on a fashion show runway, rather than committing crimes.
Leto's version was also more gangster than evil mastermind. It was a tonal and stylistic choice from Leto and director David Ayer who just didn't pay off. Compared to Ledger's acquisition of the character, which was threatening and dangerous, many fans would prefer to forget that Leto's version ever happened.
Has it connected to DCEU ?
The film does not share the same universe as DCEU, hence why someone else takes on the Joker role. That means we will never see Jason Momoos Aquaman or Ben Afflecks Batman appear in a movie with Phoenix's Joker.
It is unclear whether Warner Bros. has plans to extend Pheonix's Joker into later movies separate from DCEU. It would be quite strange to see that the studio builds two separate connected universes, but if Phoenix takes on the joker connects to the audience, I wouldn't be surprised to see him appear in several movies.
Why so serious?  Joker
