Forums - Movies Discussion - Joaquin Phoenix Joker revealed (camera test)

I never thought they'd find a worse Joker than Jared Leto, but they did.

I remember reading comments like this about heath ledger's reveal. Heh. Given the recent track record of DC, it has every chance to be terrible. I just think I'll wait for the movie though. I'd prefer not to eat crow.



The hyperbole in this thread is hilarious.
This is just a test screening and the movie is a Joker origins film. He is a failed performer and his life is miserable. This is about his descent into becoming the Joker.
Also, the movie has not released yet. Judging something based on 8 seconds of test footage is quite frankly, ridiculous.

I've lost faith in DC movies since Suicide Squad. -_-

I think he is great actor - just not very well suited for this particular role.

the DCEU is just 1 step forward and 10 steps back with every move they make. this looks terrible. you know those scenarios where you call something out for being terrible and immediately some sweaty guy tries to counter you with "so you think you could do better?" well in this case, before the sweaty guys get to me, yes, i honestly think i could have done a better job of designing the joker.

i was actually a bit excited for Aquaman, and a good deal excited for Shazam, but come on. this is not the work of a studio i would ever give my money to

Eh, I think of it as a different portrayal of Joker.

I mean unless he acts like the Joker in Arkham games, its just a different character.
