First Look at Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker


Quote:
Joker director Todd Phillips has just posted a video on Instagram entitled “Camera test”. It shows Phoenix’s character Arthur Fleck going through a transformation.

Ledger set such a high bar in my mind that it'll be nigh impossible to even remotely reach here. However, since I wasn't even luke warm on Ledger as The Joker before the movie hit, I'll suspend my disappointment until I see what Phoenix can do on screen with the role.

I have faith in the actor, but not in that makeup artist.

Ledger's Joker was one of a kind. Not just because of the performance but also because of the sort of iconic nihilism that Nolan's writing attributed to the character that was never really there before. Every Joker hence was just a cruel, narcissistic sociopath. That Joker was something more. Trying to copy that Joker would just come off as a cheap copy, but trying to invent something new that can compare favorably is a difficult challenge.

Every big and small screen version of the Joker has a foundation in comics. Every single one. Ledger's was one variation, Leto's another. Phoenix can have a unique spin that is true to comics while also being completely different than other ones. The concern for me is less with the character than with the fact we are talking another DC movie. This is probably the only DC movie I am really looking forward to.

This is a tough spot for an actor. I think Joaquin Phoenix has the chops to pull it off.
