What's The Joker Movie Release Date In UK and US? The Full Cast Including Joaquin Phoenix And Robert De Niro

Just because Joaquin Phoenix is dressed like a clown in his latest trailer doesn't mean that he's starring in a comedy. The Walk The Line star is set to play Batman's arch nemesis in the new version of the Joker, and it looks really, really dark. Phoenix has got a lot to live up to after Heath Ledger's memorable impersonation of the legendary villain, but if anyone's going to top it, it's him.

Fortunately, we don't have much longer to wait until we get to see how he interprets the role. Joker is set to be released on October 4 later this year in both the UK and America.

Warner Bros have been slowly feeding DC fans information about the new film including a first look shot of the Joker himself, and a series of teaser trailers. By the looks of things, this isn't going to be your regular superhero flick.

If you're used to the action-packed Marvel films, with huge explosions and space battles then you might be left disappointed. The story seems to follow the story of a man by the name of Arthur Fleck who makes his money by holding signs while dressed as a clown and follows his descent into madness as the world constantly deals him back hands.

So far, DC fans seem to like what they've seen in the trailers.

One person wrote on Twitter: "Intriguing, I want to see it. Joaquin Phoenix has the acting chops to pull this off."

A second fan said: "#JokerMovie looks absolutely incredible."

"Ohhhh yes this looks amazing already," echoed another.

Since it was announced the film was being made, not much has been revealed regarding the plot, with director Todd Philips (The Hangover) and the cast have kept their cards pretty close to their chest.

Even speaking at Cinema Con, where the trailer was given its first showing, Philips still wasn't willing to give anything away.

He said: "That's what happens when you set out to make an origin story about a character who doesn't have an origin."

When asked what genre the movie fits into, he simply said: "It's a tragedy."

GLOW star, Marc Maron has been revealed to have a part in the film too. The much-loved down and out director of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling took to Twitter to express his delight at the latest trailer. He said: Oh s***! This feels like a real grown up movie! Gonna be awesome!
