The Todd Phillips-directed feature “Joker,” starring Joaquin Phoenix as the titular villain from the Batman DC Comics, has released its first poster today – the one-sheet arriving ahead of the film’s teaser trailer which will debut online tomorrow.
The story centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is said to be an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen along with being both a gritty character study and a broader cautionary tale.
In this take, Phoenix plays Arthur Fleck – a man disregarded by society. Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais and Shea Whigham co-star. The film opens in cinemas on October 4th.
