There’s a ton of anticipation for the upcoming Joker film starring Joaquin Phoenix especially after the camera test footage and the “leaked” videos showcasing Phoenix in the role. We’ve been seeing a lot of Phoenix as Arthur Fleck (Joker’s real name in the film) both with and without makeup but we haven’t gotten much glimpses of other cast members aside from Zazie Beetz who will play Arthur’s love interest in the film.
We got a look of Beetz character but we haven’t really seen her and Arthur together. We’re definitely going to see it in the film itself but we got ourselves an early look with some images of the two together in a scene. A collection of brand new images shows both Phoenix and Beetz on set, having a conversation over coffee. Filmed at night, it looks like the characters are at a diner which has a good old school setting to it which makes sense cause the film’s set in the 1980s. Check out the images at Just Jared.
They look good together. Granted, Arthur isn’t in clown make up, wreaking havoc across the city to the detriment of many innocent people but they look like they’re having a good time. It’s unclear how this relationship is going to play out but it wouldn’t be surprising if the two just met and they’re having coffee together for the first time similar to that of Taxi Driver before s–t hit the fan.
This film really does look like it may deliver a great incarnation of the iconic Joker character and it may perhaps be one of the most non comic book-y comic book films we’re going to witness on the big screen. Can’t wait.
