Recently, director Todd Phillips revealed our first look at Joaquin Phoenix in character as Arhtur in his upcoming film Joker. The movie is said to follow the origins of Batman's arch-nemesis The Joker who in this version of the story is a man named Arthur. Rumors say that Arthur will be a failing comedian who has one bad day which transforms him into the psychotic criminal known as Joker. If true, this story would be a loose adaptation of The Killing Joke storyline from the comics, but it's also rumored to be in the same vein as Martin Scorsese films like Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy making it a hard boiled crime drama set in the 1980s. The film has a $55 million budget, an R rating, and the supporting cast includes Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy, Zazie Beetz, and Marc Maron. Joker is shooting now and is expected to arrive in theaters on October 4, 2019.
