New Joker Set Video Reveals Joaquin Phoenixs Tears of a Clown
13 Todd Phillips hits us with some more set photos. Todd Phillips has begun filming the next Joker film, which places Joaquin Phoenix in the clown mask. Like Jared Leto, and Heath Ledger before him, Phoenix has faced polarizing opinions about his involvement in the film. Taking on The Joker is no easy task. DC and Warner Bros. have decided to go with Arthur Fleck as the name for this reiteration of the clown prince of crime. In a new picture posted by Phillips, Fleck is in costume as a performing clown. 

This is the third look we got of The Joker for the upcoming film. The first was a short teaser, while the second glimpse came in the form of a chaotic video clip. Now, Phillips has shared a picture of Fleck sitting on electrical equipment in a clown costume. It seems like this look will come prior to the train scene that was shared last week, but thats just speculation. Fleck rocks ridiculously oversized clown shoes and one of those clown wigs that leaves a bald spot right on the crown of the head. 

Is Todd Phillips Joker Movie An Origin Story For Nolans Clown Prince?

Joker is becoming a more and more intriguing DC movie project, and mainstream audiences have certainly stood up and taken notice of the film, ever since we got our first look at Joaquin Phoenix in some iconic-looking Joker clown makeup.

A new set video may explain why Warner Bros. and DC Films ultimately decided to release that promo footage of Phoenix in clown makeup – because its exactly what paparazzi were going to start seeing, as Joker seems to be filming some key scenes with Phoenix in full makeup.
