Camera test reveals Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker

GettyImages-971357838

While it is hard to be totally sure it is hair dye and not a lens filter, it appears as though Joaquin Phoenix's hair is green in that short video from Joker released earlier today.

Our first look at the forthcoming Joker origin film earlier this week gave us a surprisingly bare-faced Joaquin Phoenix playing the iconic Batman villain.

The brief screen test shows Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck standing casually as his stoic expression turns to a grin. A separate Joker movie is in the works starring Jared Leto, who played the character in Suicide Squad.

Director Todd Phillips teased a short clip of the actor in make-up on Instagram on Friday evening. Phillips teamed up with Scott Silver (8 Mile) to write a script described as an "exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale".

We'll be sure to get more footage of Phoenix's Joker as filming continues on the project, and with it, hopefully some answers to boot.

Joker is set for release October 4, 2019, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros.

Joker is shaping up to be a standalone, possibly R-rated film that doesn't tie into previous DC Comics movies.

Co-stars include Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.
