First look at Joaquin Phoenix in make-up from "Joker"

Joaquin Phoenix is the best living actor today. I dare you to give me a more excitingly original acting voice out there. The fact that he's been cast for the ‘Batman’ spin-off film, ‘Joker,’ directed by Todd Phillips, is enough to make it into a major movie event next year.

This decade Phoenix has given usincredible work in films such as "Two Lovers," "Her," "You Were Never Really Here," "The Master," and "The Immigrant." 
We finally got a look today at Phoenix, with makeup, as the Joker, and, suffice to say, he may not look like your token Joker, but, purists be damned, he is creepy as hell.  
‘Joker’ hits theaters on October 4, 2019.
