Stephen Miller: If Heath Ledger’s Joker was an agent of chaos, and Jared Leto’s one of vapid, nihilistic excess, what makes Joaquin Phoenix’s turn so compelling is that, for the bulk of the film, he’s barely an agent at all. He’s a villain designed for our era of irony, waltzing toward one numb, preordained punchline. Hey, if there’s a villain who’s seen his fair share of action figures, it’s the Joker – the greatest comics baddie of them all. From cheap playthings to expensive pieces, the Joker has probably been cast in plastic more than any other comic villain. The annual event, now in its four year, is the biggest comic book themed event in the UK, and the third for pop culture. There’s Something About Movies is on Wednesdays at 9pm on Sky One and NOW TV.

Instead we get this finely detailed figurine, not unlike the toy soldiers that emerged years before, depicting the Harlequin of Hate in mid-guffaw, slapping his uplifted left knee.
If you have the combo upgrade ability, Joker can do takedowns at 5 hits instead of 8. This is why I will insist that you beat the main story (or at least get all of the combat upgrades) before attempting Joker’s challenge mode. It comes in a one size fits all that will be ideal for most men up to size 13. The oversized pair of red and blue shoes with stars are highly professional hence will give you a classic clown look for the Halloween. In the final scenes, he borrows the purple suit from his rent-a-clown job and adds, in a first for the character, a red nose, and blue diamond eyes. More stylized than ever, this animated Joker, voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson, sports red eyes, anime hair, yellow snaggleteeth, and a purple waistcoat. This Japanese animated film gave the Joker anime details, from purple bushido robes to wormy green hair with a mind of its own. I painted my lips with red lipstick and used purple and green eyeshadows on my eyes. Finish the look with bright, red lipstick. Put on some plain red socks. In addition to his work as a reporter, Andy co-hosts The Flash Podcast while running and producing the entire DC TV Podcasts network.
The first BTAS Joker came with a water-spraying bellows mechanism and a gas mask, but this Joker is going all gangsta with his outfit AND a tommy gun, in addition to a Joker-themed bomb with dynamite! For me, Phoenix’s interpretation of the character is about spinning a yarn of delusion that dances around with hints and jokes, while being pressed for an explanation of how he came to be. The Joker has come a long way from his first appearance in 1940; that is reflected by the modern-day Joker in “The Joker” movie of 2019. While the role of The Joker has evolved throughout the years, the wild, psychotic character, by and large, has remained the same. The mystery level is high while still having that unforgettable cackle to laugh at his situations with maniacal zeal. TMZ has captured some video of Joaquin Phoenix in action as Joker, and it’s still the same make-up design that was introduced in that camera test. The photo was taken by Colin Douglas Gray and full design credit goes to Vera herself, including for the make-up and custom-made accessories. And it’s only due to that stylish gray trench coat and hat, and the rather practical weapons he comes with!
OK, this isn’t QUITE an action figure, but it’s the first figural interpretation of the Joker, so it deserves some respect. It’s JOKER WEEK! We’re celebrating comics’ greatest villain since there’s a big ol’ major motion picture coming out this week. Hamill returned to the role with an animated Joker even more pointed and stylized-minimalist, with black eyes, white pupils, and green hair angular enough for Flock of Seagulls. The eyes, combined with the stringy green mop, recall The Crow-fitting since it’s easy to feel like this Joker’s equally-nasty victims had it coming.
