Here’s Joaquin Phoenix’s weirdly puritanical Joker

Well, if Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker has a “damaged” tattoo on his forehead, it seems he’s not going to let us see it under his cute little bangs. See for yourself with this first official look at Phoenix as he’ll appear in Todd Phillips’ standalone Joker origin story. Obviously this prior to Joker getting his signature clown face, but already it’s pretty disturbing to see a middle-aged man with a greasy, disheveled page-boy look. No reason to wonder how this Joker got those scars; they’re from his distracted mom cutting his hair in front of the television.
