One thing to be noted in the video is that Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker is similar to Heath Legder’s Joker, the makeup is almost the same and the hair are completely the same. Joker comes out of the Subway and pulls of his mask and can be seen walking in relaxed way. Well nothing can be said about Joaquin’s acting until or unless we get an actual trailer of the film.
The official synopsis of the film reads “Under the direction of Todd Phillips, the film centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of a man disregarded by society is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
