Sometimes, you have no idea what you want until you actually get it. There were skeptics last year when word was announced about a solo Joker film with Joaquin Phoenix in the starring role. Most of those qualms will be silenced with today’s teaser trailer.
This version of the iconic Batman villain narrates as a tragic story where a social misfit slowly descends into madness and later murderous revenge against a society that’s treated him with callous indifference.
I’m not completely sold on the makeup style, but Phoenix’s Joker laugh is a perfect 10.
Joker hits theaters October 4.
