Warner Bros. Releases First 'Joker' Poster
The first poster for Joker was released by Warner Bros. on Tuesday.
The tagline for the Joaquin Phoenix Batman villain stand-alone is "Put on a happy face."
The poster shows Joker looking to the sky, clearly with blood on his face. Last September, director Todd Phillips shared a screen test of Phoenix in his Joker makeup.
The origin film also stars Robert De Niro, Deadpool 2 breakout Zazie Beetz and GLOW actor Marc Maron.
The poster was dropped with a note that the first trailer would be released Wednesday.
Joker is scheduled for release Oct. 4.
