First Look at Joaquin Phoenix in Joker Makeup Revealed

Here's the first look of Joaquin Phoenix in makeup for his upcoming film about The Joker. 

In a short screen test shared by director Todd Phillips, Phoenix is staring blankly into the camera before cracking a slight smile. The camera then flashes to Phoenix wearing clown makeup, but not the traditional Joker white face and green hair. 

The 43-year-old actor was recently photographed on the set of his new Joker origin film wearing a much more normal outfit than fans would expect from the over-the-top, outlandish Batman supervillain. 

Other stars of the Joker film include Robert De Niro, Deadpool 2 breakout Zazie Beetz and GLOW actor Marc Maron.

The Joker origin film is scheduled for release Oct. 4, 2019.
