We're now getting a closer glimpse into the Joker's origins.
The second and final trailer for Todd Phillips' Joker has just arrived, which stars Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck as he journeys from aspiring comedian to the full-fledge Gotham villain we all know so well. And as anticipated, the second look went all out. Watch below.
As if we couldn't tell from the two trailers released, Phoenix has promised that this film won't be your typical superhero flick. The Academy Award nominee said in 2018, "I wouldn’t say it’s a superhero movie, or a studio movie. It feels unique, and I think more than anything, and probably the most important thing, is Todd seems very passionate about it and very giving, and so that’s exciting."
The film has generated a considerable amount of buzz for its different direction, especially after Phillips admitted he didn't use any comic books as source material, something he acknowledged that, "people are gonna be mad about."
We'll absolutely be expecting the unexpected when Joker hits theaters Oct. 4, 2019, not to mention another stellar performance by Phoenix. Give this man an Oscar already!
