Warner Bros recently released the trailer for the new DC comics film, ‘Joker.’ The film is directed by Todd Phillips and will star Joaquin Phoenix as the notorious Joker. The feature is intended to be the first in a series of DC-based films separate from the DC Extended Universe.
Set in 1981, ‘Joker’ follows Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian who is driven insane and turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City.”
While the film may be centred around DC’s most infamous character, a young Bruce Wayne will reportedly be making an appearance too. The Hollywood Reporter revealed back in late 2018 that a young Wayne had been cast and a small glimpse of him can be seen in the trailer too; between the quickfire seconds from 1:45 in the trailer below, the Joker stretches a smile onto the face of a young Batman.
Joker is set to be released in South Africa on 4 October 2019. Watch it full below and read more on the latest entertainment news right here.
