JOKER

JOKER

Joaquin Phoenix has some big clown shoes to fill and this gritty more realistic first look at JOKER gives me hope he will take the reins left by Heath Ledger and run with it. JOKER comes out October 4th directed by Todd Philips.

Set in Gotham in the 70s Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is a man with mental illness pushed to the limit only to be re-born as the Joker. Co-starring Robert Dinero(with lots of nods to his The King of Comedy) and also starring Marc Maron. I’m intrigued and calling it now this will serve as a prequel of sort to Ledger’s Joker. Since this takes place in the 70s Ledgers Joker will be a kid who is inspired by the chaos Fleck/Joker causes to Gotham.
