1) I'm really surprised by how not-at-all-secretive the filming of Todd Phillips' Joker has been.— John Squires (@FreddyInSpace) September 22, 2018

We have seen the campy clown prince, the gangster mob king, the apathetic anarchist, & the sadistic psychopath.— Jesabel (@JesabelRaay) September 23, 2018
It's going to be really interesting to see which direction Joaquin Phoenix will take his interpretation of the iconic Joker character. #Joker pic.twitter.com/QmfHYL1RT3
