Proving that Marvel doesn’t get all the excitement, today DC released the Joker – Official Teaser Trailer starring Joaquin Phoenix to great enthusiasm. Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight really elevated the character, and it looks like Joaquin Phoenix has the acting chops to fill those shoes and play a psychopathic murderer with unnerving proficiency.
Written and directed by Todd Phillips, someone known more for comedies like Old School, The Hangover, and Starsky & Hutch, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, and Robert De Niro. It will be released in theaters on October 4, 2019.
