Fans of the Batman universe are eagerly awaiting the premiere of Joker, the film based on the origins of one of the most famous and fascinating comic book villains . An exciting first trailer has shown that this time director Todd Phillips wants to present a very different Joker.
Details of the first Joker trailer (2019)
One of the most anticipated movies of this 2019, Joker, is marked by two novelties. One, the biographical dimension of the film, focused entirely on the origins and development of a character as psychologically complex as the Joker. The other, the premiere of Joaquin Phoenix as the new incarnation of the supervillain.
More than thirty years after Jack Nicholson gave life to Batman’s archenemy, and after the rise of the character in the skin of Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, it was revealed that the actor Joaquin Phoenix will be the new Joker in the movie that tries to explore his most intimate side, the life of his alter ego Arthur Fleck.
The trailer hints at a more intimate and personal approach to the character, far from the maelstrom of action and adventure to which the Batman universe has accustomed us. In fact, Warner Bross and DC decided to promote a new section, DC Dark, which will be released with the Joker movie, while Jared Leto will continue to play this character in DC Comics .

The trailer opens with Arthur Fleck on the couch, talking to his psychologist, and living a marginal and harrowing life as a clown. The key is in the transformation of a sentient being with a cruel existence into an evil being consumed in his own character. Some scenes, like Joaquin Phoenix dancing in the dark in front of the mirror, show that change.
The moment of climax comes with the voiceover of the Joker: “I thought my life was a tragedy, but it turned out to be a comedy . ” During several scenes we become aware of the interpretive demands of this histrionic and ambiguous character, a prisoner of his own traumas and a prisoner of his own existence. YJ oaquin Phoenix , seems to be up to the task.
A low budget and a lot of expectation
In the last scene we already see the real Joker, with his usual appearance and with a much more evil version. But throughout the film we hardly see any action , except in some misdeed that he carries out and the persecution of the police: “Gotham is no longer what it was. What kind of coward can be so cold-blooded
