A post shared by Todd Phillips (@toddphillips1) on

Principal photography has begun on Warner Bros. Pictures’ Joker, starring Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, alongside Oscar winner Robert De Niro, and directed, produced and co-written by Oscar nominee Todd Phillips.

Joker centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

The film also stars Zazie Beetz (Atlanta, Deadpool 2), Bill Camp (Red Sparrow, Molly’s Game), Frances Conroy (American Horror Story, Castle Rock), Brett Cullen (42, Narcos), Glenn Fleshler (Billions, Barry), Douglas Hodge (Red Sparrow, Penny Dreadful), Marc Maron (Maron, GLOW), Josh Pais (Motherless Brooklyn, Going in Style), and Shea Whigham (First Man, Kong: Skull Island).

Phillips (The Hangover trilogy) directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with writer Scott Silver (The Fighter), based on characters from DC. The film is being produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. It is executive produced by Richard Baratta, Joseph Garner and Bruce Berman.

Behind the scenes, Phillips is joined by director of photography Lawrence Sher (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, The Hangover trilogy), production designer Mark Friedberg (Selma, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), editor Jeff Groth (War Dogs, The Hangover Part III), and Oscar-winning costume designer Mark Bridges (Phantom Thread, The Artist).

Joker is set for release October 4, 2019, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Watch Marvel’s Daredevil: Season 3 Teaser Trailer

You can now watch the teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated third season of Marvel’s Daredevil, which continues the theme of darkness in the new season of the Netflix series.

The third season of Marvel’s Daredevil sees the return of Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil. Also returning for the series are Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, with Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Vincent D’Onofrio back as Wilson Fisk aka The Kingpin. Newcomers to the series include Wilson Bethel (Hart of Dixie) as an FBI agent and Joanne Whalley (The Borgias, Gossip Girl, Wolf Hall) as Sister Maggie aka Daredevil’s mother.

The teaser highlights the emotional darkness that Murdock is going through following the events of The Defenders, in which he was presumed dead following the implosion of the building sitting on top of the dragon skeleton, while he was actually recovering in an unknown location with a nun watching over him. Whatever has happened to the former lawyer in the time between has clearly taken a toll, as he’s now prepared to remain in the suit forever instead of returning to his old life.

Erik Oleson will be the new showrunner for the series, replacing Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who were co-showrunners on the second season of the series. Steven DeKnight was the showrunner in the inaugural season.

Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 will premiere on Netflix in 2018. The third season of Marvel’s Daredevil is Executive Produced by series Oleson and Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), along with Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Marvel’s Daredevil is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

First Look At Joaquin Phoenix As The Joker

Director Todd Phillips has posted our first look at Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker (a.k.a. Arthur Fleck) in Warner Bros. Pictures‘ Joker origin movie, and it is not what you would expect. Check out the photo below.

Phillips is co-writing and directing the Joker film. It will explore the life of a man destined to become Gotham City’s Clown Prince of Crime. The story takes place in the ’80s, outside of the DC Extended Universe series of films. Early word suggests that Joker‘s tone is being compared to Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy. That’s fitting, because Scorsese is also co-producing the Joker movie.

Joaquin Phoenix is slated to play the title character of Joker, with Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz and Marc Maron playing supporting roles. Joker is now filming in New York City, and it is expected to hit theaters on October 4, 2019.
