Zazie Beetz (‘Atlanta’) has the comic world eating out of the palm of her hand by first starring as Domino in ‘Deadpool 2’ and now appearing in DC’s ‘Joker‘ origin story. The actress has the perfect mixture of talent, look, and swagger to pull off a luck-powered hero and is now showing what she’ll look like as the potential love interest of the future Clown Prince of Crime. As a regular person in the film and not a hero or villain you shouldn’t expect a crazy outfit here when director Todd Phillips shows off our first look at the actress below.
It should be noted that our first look at Joaquin Phoenix as a future Joker also was rather bland before the recent outing with him as a circus clown so this isn’t necessarily what we can expect to see in the movie.
Let’s take a quick look:
Yes, it’s a shot of Zazie Beetz looking rather serious and unimpressed in a sweater.
Do you think there is a remote chance that ‘Joker’ will be a satisfying movie for fans of the Clown Prince of Crime? Will Zazie Beetz be able to steal every scene that she’s in? Does this sweater hint that we’ll be seeing a movie that takes place mainly in the Fall or Winter? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
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. Phillips’ exploration of a man disregarded by society is not only a gritty character study but also a broader cautionary tale.
Joaquin Phoenix will be laughing his way onto the big screen as the ‘Joker’ on October 4th, 2019!
