Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker camera test is creepy

The Joker movie is currently filming, and there are already leaks of Joaquin Phoenix on the set as Arthur, the rather normal-looking man before his turn into the Clown Prince of Crime. Well, director Todd Phillips has released a camera test via his Instagram account featuring Phoenix standing and smiling with glimpses of himself as a clown.

The video shows how creepy Phoenix can be as he stands alone with “Laughing” by The Guess Who playing in the background. He has a wicked smile, showing the imperfections of his teeth, and then we see another transparent shot of him as a clown. This looks to be the Joker version 1.0, and hopefully we’ll get to see the version with all white makeup with red lipstick.

The film is being written by Phillips and Scott Silver with Robert De Niro in talks to play a character who pushes Arthur into insanity. Others joining the cast include Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) and Marc Maron (GLOW).

The film won’t be a part of the DC Extended Universe, and there will be another Joker standalone film starring Jared Leto.

The Joker film hits theaters on October 4, 2019.
