Later this year, director Todd Phillips and star Joaquin Phoenix are bringing a new vision of the iconic Joker to the big screen with a new origin story of Batman's arch nemesis that's aiming to be more of a dramatic crime thriller than a superhero blockbuster.
In the movie, a failed stand-up comedian is driven insane and becomes a psychopathic murderer.
Over the weekend, Phillips shared the above image while confirming that Joker will indeed be a much darker entry into the DC Universe, with an "R" rating attached to the film.
"It will be rated R," Phillips told a fan. "I’ve been asked this a lot. Just assumed people knew. Sorry."
Joker arrives in theaters on October 4th.
