'Joker' Trailer Gives First Look at Joaquin Phoenix as Classic Villain
The first trailer for Joaquin Phoenix's Joker dropped Wednesday and fans got a better look at how the Oscar-nominated actor will portray one of cinema's most iconic villains.
The day before, Warner Bros. shared the first poster for the Todd Phillips-directed origin film, which also stars Robert De Niro, Deadpool 2 breakout Zazie Beetz and GLOW actor Marc Maron.
