The first images we saw of Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker in the upcoming film were underwhelming to say the least. Courtesy of director Todd Phillips, we now have a look of Phoenix in his full-on Joker costume, and you can bet that he smiles like a total creep.

The brief video clip involves a slow zoom in to Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, his protagonist's pre-Joker form, who's described in the official Warner Bros. plot synopsis as "a man disregarded by society".

We don't know too much about the plot of the film, but it is said to be separate from the current canon of the DC Extended Universe and will be an elseworld's take on the Clown Prince of crime. Now let's all make wild comparisons with this morsel to the legendary Joker performance of Heath Ledger in "the Dark Knight".

It is also interesting to note that Phoenix's hair length and style is nearly identical to what we saw in Ledger's Oscar winning take on the character. How does this first impression stack up against Phoenix's rival Jared Leto Joker over in the DCEU?

The film synopsis revealed: 'Under the direction of Todd Phillips, the film centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen'.

We'll see what transpires over the coming months, leading up to Joker's release on October 4th of next year. In it, Phoenix's character Arthur Fleck seems to have colored his long hair green.
