This latest batch of on-set pictures and videos see Phoenix’s Joker on the run from Gotham police, racing through traffic, and even being taken out by by a taxi cab. Pretty sure that scene was performed by Phoenix’s stunt double.
Dude sure is doing a lot of running in this movie, scheduled for release on October 4th, 2019.
The movie, set in 1981, is being directed by Todd Phillips (Old School, The Hangover). Also in the film’s cast are Robert De Niro as a talk show host, Frances Conroy as Penny Fleck: Arthur’s mother, Marc Maron as an agent, Bill Camp, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Josh Pais, Shea Whigham, and Bryan Callen.
Joker centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
