Actor, Joaquin Phoenix is next to step into the shoes of Batman’s most iconic enemy, The Joker.
This next instalment will see Pheonix star in the as-yet-untitled film, which will be set in the 1980s, as a failed comedian who becomes Gotham City’s most dreaded villain but there’s no white-chalked face paint, bright green hair or bloody red lips, yet!
And that’s because this next movie will be an origin story, following Batman’s ultimate nemesis as he rises to become a criminal psychopath.
Director Todd Phillips shared the photo on his Instagram with the caption ‘Arthur’ – believed to be the real name of this Joker.
Joker is predicted to hit our screens sometime in 2019 and let’s hope DC is really going to pull something amazing out of the bag on this one. Joker is about as bad as a bad guy can get.
