Holy nightmare fuel, Batman! Just look at this happy party clown! WB just dropped this nice photo of Joaquin Phoenix during some make-up tests. He looks like he’s ready to scar your kids for life!
While this obviously isn’t the tradition Joker makeup we are familiar with, a white face with thin red lips and sometimes purple or black eye makeup, I believe that we are getting a look at “early Joker”. I mean that he will probably have a different kind of makeup look toward the end of the movie. Or who knows, it’s quite questionable what DC is thinking these days. What, with three-ish Joker movies in the works, maybe they’re moving into “a new direction” with Joker and want to make him look more like a party clown. There’s much we can speculate, what fun!
Though this photo is terrifying, it somehow seems a lot friendlier than the other pic of Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker minus makeup, which was released not even a week ago. I think it sports a resemblance to the Anton Chigurh character, played by Javier Bardem, of NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN.
