Is this how Joaquin Phoenix would look like as The Joker?

Earlier in the month in the article "Joaquin Phoenix to Play The Joker In Todd Philips' Untitled Joker Origin Movie" I revealed that Joaquin Phoenix was going to, most likely, play the Joker in a standalone, non-DCEU, movie. A film which would pretend, if only, that Jared Leto's take on the Joker in “Suicide Squad” never existed. And yet, Phoenix, always living in his own strange world, had no clue what Allocine was talking about when they asked him about the role, puzzled by the question he said:

 “What movie about the Joker?” he asked, and as the interviewer probed further, Phoenix simply said, “I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
God bless him.

I originally wrote about Phoenix' possible Joker role:

It seems like the WB has finally found its Joker for Todd Phillips’ untitled Joker origin movie. According to Variety, none other than Joaquin Phoenix will play Batman's arch nemesis. Contractual negotiations are currently not underway, but, according to the daily, "Phillips has made it clear that Phoenix was his top choice to star .... and after thinking it over, Phoenix has agreed to the role."

Phillips will direct and co-write the screenplay. The director had met Phoenix before the new year and was just waiting for the WB to give him the green light to cast Phoenix.  Rumors had circulated that Leonardo DiCaprio was Phillips' original choice to play The Joker but that fell through. All the better, Phoenix as the Joker makes more sense than DiCaprio.

I want to thank a reader by the name of Hank for sending this photoshop of Joaquin as the Joker, this casting of actor and character could very well be a match made in heaven.
