In September 2018, photos were released of Joaquin Phoenix stepping into character as the Joker in the forthcoming origin film, Joker. The photos quickly went viral on social media. Since then, more photos are being leaked from set, and they contain a surprising detail that will certainly stun fans.

The Best Joker Ever?

The forthcoming 2019 film, Joker, is expected to tell the origin of how a seemingly normal man becomes a criminal mastermind, famously known as the Joker. Fans are excited to learn more about the iconic character. But when it was announced seasoned actor Joaquin Phoenix would play the memorable character, fans were skeptical. Could he pull it off?

But after set photos were released in September 2018, fans reacted on social media. Many Twitter users declared Phoenix is “about to be the best Joker we’ve ever seen.”

Some fans, however, studied the photos and found a surprising detail that reveals more information about the upcoming film.

He Looks The Part

The new photos feature Phoenix dressed up in the classic Joker costume: a bright red suit, mustard-colored vest, and teal collared shirt. He also has slicked-back, swamp green hair and clown-inspired face makeup. He looks perfect, but that’s not all.

The photos show Phoenix walking through the Bedford Park Blvd., a New York City subway station. He’s smiling while a group of followers holds up signs that read “Clown 4 Mayor.”

But that’s not the most shocking part about these photos.

Who’s The Villain?

Fans immediately noticed something peculiar about these new set photos. Also in the photos are several men who are attacking Thomas Wayne (played by Brett Cullen), the father of Bruce Wayne, otherwise known as Batman, who, according to rumors, is running for mayor of Gotham City in Joker.

So, is he trying to defeat the Joker? Keep in mind that this is an origin tale completely devoted to telling the Joker’s story unlike ever before. We’re bound to be sympathetic towards him.

So, who’s the villain? We’ll find out on October 4, 2019.
