Another batch of set photos, this time out of Newark, NJ, have hit the net with it speculated to have possibly spoiled the ending to the Joker film.
Warning: Spoilers possibly follow.
Set pics reveal Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker in the back of a Gotham City police cruiser laughing as he gets taken away.
Just Jared points out it appears as if the Joker gets arrested and arrested by the police.
Obviously, it's possible the scene may not be the ending of the Joker film, as it could actually be argued it could be the beginning. Set images and video seemingly reveal Joker taking part in riots; so quite possibly the Joaquin Phoenix Joker may simply be arrested for being a part of protests. Additional set pics and video revealed people protesting against Capitalism and the Wayne family.
Director Todd Phillips hasn't tried to make much of the movie secret, as he even revealed first look images due to not wanting cruddy paparazzi images hitting the net first.
It should also be pointed out we have yet to see Robert DeNiro's character or Brett Cullen's Thomas Wayne, so at least for now, there appears to be some things we have yet to see.
Joaquin Phoenix Joker
The Joker origin movie centers around the iconic arch nemesis of Batman and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillipsâ€™ exploration of a man disregarded by society is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale. The film follows the transformation of a struggling stand-up comedian to a full-blown criminal force of nature.
The movie also stars Deadpool 2's Zazie Beetz playing a single mom who catches the interest of the man who will become the clown prince of crime; Marc Maron is the agent responsible for getting the Joker on DeNiro's talk show, with the film also starring Frances Conroy and Josh Pais.
Joker has an October 4, 2019 release date.
