For the first time a cult villain will be given a solo picture, not a role in the adventures of Batman.
Director Todd Phillips published a short video with Joaquin Phoenix in the image of a Joker for a solo film about the main villain of Batman. Before that, the director showed the actor without make-up in everyday clothes.
The film’s premiere is scheduled for October 4, 2019. The director was appointed Todd Phillips (“Vprityk”, “Bachelor Party in Vegas”, “Guys with trunks”). Before that, the Joker appeared only in the films about Batman: in the last screen versions he was played by Jared Leto, Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson. The new “Joker” will be devoted to revealing the character during the 70-80s.
