This month we shared news regarding the forthcoming Joker film directed by Todd Phillips. Today, Phillips continues to tease us by releasing a short clip of actor Joaquin Phoenix donning the famed Joker face paint. Dubbed as a “camera test,” the preview sees Phoenix prior to the infamous makeover with eerie-yet-fitting tunes playing in the background. As the camera zooms in you’ll find vintage circus-like clips of Joaquin embracing the sadistic character. The clip concludes with the Joker in full face paint over his piercing smile.

Take a look at the preview below and let us know where the next Joker character will rank amongst other famed actors to play the role. In related news, you can take a look at the expected cast set for the October 4, 2019 film.
