Joaquin Phoenix looks creepy as hell in a first poster for Joker


Director Todd Phillips has shared the first poster for his Joker origin story starring Joaquin Phoenix.

The image doesn’t reveal a whole lot but what we see is enough to creep me out. In Joker make-up and smeared with, what appears to be, blood we see the titular character gazing upward. The main title dominates the top of the image with the tagline ‘Put on a happy face’ below.

Director Tod Phillips shared the first poster for the film on his Instagram feed and announced that a teaser trailer will follow a day later.

The story is a character driven new take on the origin story of Batman’s famous nemesis. The film will show the transition of Arthur Fleck into the volatile villain.
