As promised yesterday by director Todd Phillips, Warner Bros. has dropped the first epic teaser trailer for the upcoming Joaquin Phoenix-starring origin story, Joker.
Joker, which is set in the year 1981, follow’s Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck character as he “disregarded by his society” and “turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City.”
Unlike recent Warner Bros. and DC movies, Joker will not take place in the DCEU and will be a much more “adult” and “dark” take on the character, similar to what Fox did with Wolverine in Logan.
