Joaquin Phoenix starrings as the Caped Crusaders celebrated adversary in a standalone aspect directed by Todd Phillips
The trailer for the hotly foreseen Batman spinoff Joker has hit the internet.
Starring Joaquin Phoenix in a persona already played by Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger, Joker has been conceived as a standalone cinema separate from the DEC Extended Universe series.
Set in 1981, and describing the Joker as” a failed stand-up comedian, disregarded by his society,[ who] turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City, this origins tale is purportedly influenced by gritty urban films of the Martin Scorsese vintage- so much better so that at one point Scorsese was fastened as co-producer to the project.
Directed by Todd Phillips, Joker is due for release on 3 October in Australia, and 4 October in the US and UK.
