“Joker” director Todd Phillips recently shared a photo of Joaquin Phoenix dressed up as the legendary character.

In the photo, Phoenix looks less menacing as Heath Ledger’s interpretation in “The Dark Knight,” but it’s still a menacing as hell. Check out the photo below. (RELATED: THE NEW MOVIE ABOUT THE RISE OF THE JOKER LOOKS TERRIFYING [VIDEO])

I can only speak for myself here, but I think Phoenix is going to make a hell of a Joker. The dude looks a bit scary when he’s not even in makeup.

According to IMDB, the “film will center on how the popular comic book villain known as The Joker came to be.”

That sounds like a hell of a great plot to me. The truth is that there are endless possibilities for the filmmakers to go with when telling the story of how the infamous villain came to be. I need to know how he got those scars!

You can bet every dollar you have I’ll be in the theater October 4, 2019.
