Joaquin Phoenix's 'Joker' Trailer Reveals Brian Tyree Henry

Joaquin Phoenix portrays the sadistic Joker in the upcoming self-titled film coming this fall

He appears in the teaser at the 1:47 mark, with Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) putting a smile on his face. Phoenix's recent credits include "The Sisters Brothers" and "You Were Never Really Here", and his religious epic "Mary Magdalene" opens in USA theaters April 12. "She told me I had a goal, to bring laughter and joy to the world", he continues in the trailer, which you can watch below.

Along with the teaser, Warner Bros. has released the first poster for the film, featuring Phoenix in full makeup and the tagline "Put on a Happy Face" (a song that, of course, plays ironically over the trailer). There have been many Jokers in the Batman cinematic universe, but Phoenix will likely be playing his own version of the Joker, like Cameron Montague on Gotham, albeit for a different reason.

Trump Cutting $700 Million in Aid to Central America
Mexico, in fact, was hoping to put together an aid package with the United States before Trump announced these severe measures. There were 4,000 apprehensions of migrants at the border one day last week and the U.S.is on pace for 100,000 for all of March.

After seeing the first "Joker" trailer, fans had only one question: who played the character best? Right now, all the things I'm most excited about, comic book movie-wise, are coming from DC, and that feels good to me. "But that's what happens when you set out to make an origin story about a character who doesn't have an origin", he said. He's living an unappreciated life, caring for his ailing mother and beset and beat down by the world at every turn, literally assaulted by people everywhere he goes, and he has a weird fixation on clowns. "Heath Ledger has ruined it for me, I can't see any other Joker without comparing it to his magical spine chilling performance", one pro-Ledger fan tweeted. It's thought to be heavily based on Alan Moore's The Killing Joke and has a fantastic cast, with Robert De Niro and Zazie Beetz in supporting roles. Ever since hearing that Joaquin Phoenix was on board I was pretty interested.

The film, which will be released October 4th of this year, is about Arthur Fleck/Joker, a failed comedian in 1981 who turned to the life of chaos and crime due to the society he exists within.
