JOKER Director Todd Phillips Shares Our First Look At Joaquin Phoenix As "Arthur"

Now that filming is underway on Todd Philips' Joker origin movie, the director has shared our first glimpse of star Joaquin Phoenix as a pre-Clown Prince of Crime "Arthur." Check it out after the jump...

Meet Arthur: the man who will eventually become Batman's greatest nemesis, The Joker.

Director Todd Philips has taken to Instagram to share our first look at Joaquin Phoenix as "Arthur Fleck," and while this fellow clearly doesn't have any of The Joker's trademark characteristics, he will eventually don the white skin, green hair and ruby lips that have become so closely associated with the iconic Batman baddie.

At least, we hope so?

It seems Phillips posted this pic to get the jump on some set images that found their way online today (more on those later).

There's speculation that Phoenix's character will undergo his transformation into the Clown Prince of Crime after suffering a similar tragedy to the one that befalls Joker in Alan Moore's The Killing Joke, but that obviously remains to be seen.

At any rate, let us know what you think of this first look at the man who will become The Joker in the comments down below.
