Our first look at Joaquin Phoenix's Joker reveals his origin name

A first look at Joaquin Phoenix as Joker revealed Todd Phillips Reveals First Look at Joaquin Phoenix in ‘Joker’ Movie

Early rumors indicate Phoenix's Arthur and Joker will be a stand-up comedian. However, filmmaker Todd Phillips (The Hangover trilogy) is about to change that with his origin movie about the insane clown, headlined by Joaquin Phoenix. While we know Deadpool 2's Zazie Beetz, Oscar award-winning actor Robert De Niro, and GLOW co-star Marc Maron are in the film-but we have no clue as to who they're playing from the vast Batman lore. And (spoiler alert) his caption simply stated the Joker's real first name: "Arthur".

Joaquin Phoenix is Arthur Fleck in the first official image of the actor from the set of Joker. The pic shows Phoenix looking at the camera, with a slight smile on his visage. There are some set photos out there, too. After all, the Joker's skinniness is part of what makes him eerie. And sure, in all likelihood, yes, he's Gotham City's so-called Clown Prince of Crime. Maybe Phoenix will be dropped into a Value-Added Tax of acid or something late in the film, but for the most part, it looks like we'll be examining a real human being, stripped of supervillainous accoutrements. The green hair, the chalk-white face and an unnaturally wide smile. That's fitting, because Scorsese is also co-producing the Joker movie. It also boasts a modest $55 million price tag, which is significantly lower than most other tentpole flicks in the genre. Filming is set in NYC and hopes to bring forth the Joker origin story thereby lacking in DC's film canon. This is the same Warner Bros. outfit that is releasing another Joker project based around Jared Leto's depiction of the character in Suicide Squad.

The Phoenix movie is scheduled to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
