The film will focus on the origins of the evil character known as the Joker (interpreted this time by the talented actor Joaquin Phoenix), exploring how and why this men, with the name of Arthur Fleck, became a that villain and the most famous enemy in the history of Gotham City and in the life of Batman. The official plot says the following words: "Joker centers around the iconic arch-nemesis of Bruce Wayne. It is an original, standalone and different story not seen never before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck, a man marginated and disregarded by society, is not only a gritty and dark character study, but also a broader cautionary and dark tale with an even darkest key message."

Trivia Joker

Frances McDormand turned down the role of the Arthur Fleck/Joker's mother, Penny. The Joker's make-up is very similar to John Wayne Gacy's, a serial killer who would often entertain children while dressed as "Pogo the clown". This make-up style was shunned by working clowns at the time as they strictly prohibit "sharp" ends in their make up, as it scares children. Three of the previous actors who have played the Joker - Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, and Jared Leto - are Oscar winners (with Ledger winning for playing The Joker). Joaquin Phoenix has been nominated for an Oscar three times.
