The 'Joker' Poster Debuts Ahead of the Film's First Trailer

In case you're wondering, this standalone Joker film takes place in a universe separate from the rest of DC's current line up - so, we won't be seeing Phoenix's Joker alongside Wonder Woman, Shazam, Aquaman, or Leto's Joker.

It's terrifying, and also totally awesome. Sorry, Dick Van Dyke, we'll never unsee Joaquin Phoenix stretching his face into a smile while that song plays.

Some viewers were able to put their fear aside to take note of some important Easter eggs hidden within the horrorscape.

He's in good company too with Robert De Niro set to co-star as part of a cast that includes Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Bill Camp, Glenn Fleshler, Shea Whigham, Brett Cullen, Douglas Hodge and Josh Pais.

"Phoenix continued, "...sometimes that is uncovered and exposed, and sometimes it isn't, and so I always felt, like, there were characters in comics that were really interesting and deserve the opportunity to be kind of studied".

Unlike most comic book films these days, Joker proved exceedingly generous with the set material, meaning that some of the trailer scenes will be familiar to anyone who kept track of the movie's production.

"Joker" director Todd Philips has finally sent in the clown.

Joker is scheduled to be released by Warner Bros.

The trailer also gives a sneak peek into his enthralling transformation from Arthur to Joker.

As you must know, Joaquin Phoenix is the seventh actor ever to portray the role of Joker in a theatrical film. "I used to think that my life was a tragedy", Phoenix recites during a dramatic montage in which he dances alone naked then beats his made-up face against a pane of glass, "but now I realize it's a comedy". Most people who are mentally ill are only a risk to themselves, and it would be nice to see people in films who have anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other conditions be seen as just people instead of nearly always being connected with a generic "crazy" bad guy.
