We finally get to see Joaquin Phoenix in Joker makeup

Joaquin Phoenix as Joker

A new screen test from Warner Bros. delivers a little closer to the classic clown prince of crime, though it's more "clown" than "criminal".

Footage leaked earlier this week showed Joaquin Phoenix in character as the Joker for the first time. The makeup itself appears to be based off of a much more traditional clown style than we have previously seen for the Joker.

Now, the movie's director has tweeted out the first footage of Phoenix in full Joker make-up and. well. you should see for yourself.

Given that Phillips film isn't due for another year, Phoenix's look could still change.

Prior to Phoenix filling the role, Jared Leto portrayed the Joker in 2016's Suicide Squad, the late Heath Ledger earned a posthumous Oscar for playing the character in 2008's The Dark Knight and Jack Nicholson famously portrayed the maniacal villain in Tim Burton's 1989 Batman.

Joker won't be hitting theaters until October 2019, but it's already generating a lot of buzz.

Now we've been given another glimpse thanks to a clip taken from a "camera test" with the actor, posted to Instagram by Joker director Todd Phillips. Phillips' exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

Joker is reportedly set in the 1980s, and also stars Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Marc Maron and Robert DeNero.
