Does Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Get Classic Look In Film?

Joaquin Phoenix Joker Todd Phillips Oscar

With Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker officially released all across the world, we finally know if his character dons the classic Joker look from the comics.

Unfortunately, the film does not have the classic Joker with the purple suit  that we’ve been used to. Instead, the film introduces audiences with a brand new look never-before-seen on screen. In the film, Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker wears a red blazer and red pants, with a dark yellow vest. Joaquin Phoenix’s makeup is also different, in the sense that his eyebrows are coloured in and that there are diamonds on his eyes. His mouth also has giant big red lips painted over it as well. One genuine similarity that Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker has to the comic-book look is that they both have green hair.

Since the character’s inception, fans have been used to seeing the Joker with green hair and plain bleached white skin (with little to no makeup) as well as a purple suit. However, fans were treated to something radically different when they sat down to watch the film this weekend.

Seeing as Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker is a dark and gritty interpretation of the Joker character with no genuine ties to the cannon or any other comic book films, it would have been far-fetched to see the classic look in the film. Furthermore, by adding the classic look, it would have taken away from the standalone and realistic nature the filmmakers had set up.

Are you disappointed that Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker doesn’t have the character’s classic look? Let us know in the comments!

Here is the official synopsis for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker:

Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.

Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.

Joker is now in theaters everywhere. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the Joaquin Phoenix movie.
