Todd Philips Shares Joker Test Footage and I Can’t Stop Smiling

I think we can all agree by saying that Heath Ledger’s Joker was one of the best on-screen versions of the character as of yet. Last year’s Suicide Squad was a just a big ball of disappointment and so was Jared Leto’s portrayal of the Joker. Yesterday, Director Todd Phillips shared test footage for the upcoming Warner Brothers “Joker” film. I have to be honest and say at first I hated this version of the Joker. I know there’s not a lot to go off of but the white face paint, and overall style just felt off.


Camera test (w/ sound). Joker.

Then I watch the video over and over again and I have to admit I pretty much fell in love with this portrayal. Now, I know this is just test footage and we could see a completely different version of the Joker in the long run, but as of now, I feel that Joaquin Phoenix is great for the role and this style of Joker will be something we have never seen before. This film is based in the 1980s and will follow Arthur Fleck,  a failed disgraced comedian that Society has pushed aside. I truly can’t wait to hear more about this film and if you would like to hear more about this will make sure to check back here for all things geek and gaming!
