One of the big mysteries coming out of Warner Bros. and their DCEU (Or more appropriately in this case, their “Worlds of DC”), is the one-off Joker origin film. Using a type of Elseworlds idea to it (Where it remains separate from the main continuity of DC films), the film will attempt to give the origin-less Batman villain a defining story…or maybe not. It’s hard to know what kind of comic book film an actor of Joaquin Phoenix’s unique brand is willing to do. With a teaser trailer expected to hit tomorrow, director Todd Phillips has released the first poster for the film on his Instagram. Check it out below:
Joker co-stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham. It is set to hit theaters October 4th.
