Joaquin is currently on the promo trail for his new film Joker, in which he plays a reimagined version of the iconic Batman villain.

In a new piece in The Telegraph, Joaquin’s incarnation of the character is described as “a villain for our times”, who “writes an unhinged manifesto; fantasises about killing himself on live television, agitates for chaos on the streets”.

“If the film hadn’t been set in the ’80s he could easily be the latest online message-board extremist to take his grievances murderously viral,” writes film critic Robbie Collin.

Joker could've been Leonardi DiCaprio, but instead it's Joaquin Phoenix . Here's why we think Joaquin Phoenix is destined to be the Caped Crusader Batman's nemesis and is worthy of the legacy of such great actors as Cesar Romaro, Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill, and Heath Ledger.

In fact, Joaquin was left more or less speechless by the question, reportedly muttering “why would you..?” before “walking out of the door”.

Joaquin Phoenix and director Tod Phillips discussed the Clown Prince of Crime's chuckle in a Q&A session for Joker . What is indisputable though is the importance of that laugh, and this was an element of the character that the star of the upcoming Joker did not take lightly.

Interestingly, Joker director Todd Phillips has said that Joaquin did have a habit of walking off set when they were in the middle of filming, telling the New York Times: “In the middle of the scene, he’ll just walk away and walk out. And the poor other actor thinks it’s them and it was never them ― it was always him, and he just wasn’t feeling it.”

Joining Joaquin in the cast of Joker are Robert De Niro and Frances Conroy, who plays his character’s mother.

a man wearing a suit and tie standing in front of a building: Todd Phillips’ Joker movie won’t be hitting theaters until October 4. But it’s been provoking both heated outrage and acclaim from the internet filmgoing community already. Some have said Joaquin Phoenix's performance could be Oscar worthy. Others have denounced the film as one-note, or worse, with certain critics making the case that a film like Joker could even be dangerous in today’s sociopolitical climate. However the movie ends up being received by wide audiences when it’s finally released later this fall, one thing’s for sure–the decades-old DC Comics character called The Joker is a force of nature. The villainous Clown Prince of Crime has been the subject of several famous–and tragic–portrayals over the past half a century, making the careers of some actors, and, as in the case of Jared Leto, bringing performer’s reputation down into the gutters. There is just something about The Joker. He’s an enigmatic and fully terrifying Batman foil who was created all the way back in 1940 by the DC Comics team of Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson. A shocking phenomenon to behold, Joker’s possibly the greatest villain in pop culture history. His hilarious, sociopathic, and downright demonic presence has become something of a filmmaking tradition. Just like with James Bond, or even Batman himself, it’s no small news when an actor signs on to play the infamous Dark Knight nemesis. Here we've ranked the most famous Joker portrayals from worst to best [insert maniacal laughter here].
