Every Live-Action Joker First Look Photo

In light of the first photo of Cameron Monaghan in full Joker makeup for the Gotham series finale being released and with the first trailer for the Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie poised to drop, let’s take a look back at the first photos ever released for the modern live-action incarnations of the Clown Prince of Crime.

There have been four big screen, live-action incarnations of the Joker in the last three decades, and each first look has provoked a different response — and each seemingly more divisive among fandom than the last. The first shot of Cameron Monaghan finally in full Joker persona is only the latest example of that, and will almost certainly not be the last.

The respective first looks at the Jokers played by Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto, and Joaquin Phoenix were released in different ways depending on the media of their time. Nicholson’s debuted in traditional print media, Ledger’s was revealed via viral marketing, while both Leto and Phoenix’s debuted via social media.

Joker Set Photo Suggests the DC Movie Inspired by This Film

While The King of Comedy is a widely reported inspiration for the Joker origin movie, new clues from the set hint that another Martin Scorsese/Robert De Niro classic — Taxi Driver — could also be an influence.

The King of Comedy and Taxi Driver are both profiles of deranged and broken men, delusional urban loners who criminally lash out at those they feel have rejected them, and the Joker movie — penned by director Todd Phillips (the Hangover trilogy) and co-screenwriter Scott Silver (8 Mile, The Fighter) — certainly sounds like it’s in a similar vein. The official plot synopsis for Joker describes Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck as “a man disregarded by society” and the DC film as “not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto put a lot of effort into playing the Joker. In preparation for the role, the actor met with “psychopaths and people who had committed horrendous crimes.”

Leto told Entertainment Weekly when he takes on a role like the Joker, he becomes “part detective, part writer.”

“I knew I had to be committed as much as possible,” Leto said. “I had to be committed beyond belief. And I did what I needed to do deliver the best I possibly could.”
