The Joker first reactions are coming in, and it seems that things are looking good for the upcoming film.
Full reviews are still under embargo, but the social reactions for Joker are hitting the web from the Venice Film Festival, and it seems praise is the only term you can use.
“Bring in the clowns!!!” 🤡 #Joker will surprise the hell out of people. Dark, twisted, brutal origin story of the most recognised villain in popular culture. Joaquin Phoenix adds another iconic performance to his extraordinary career #Venezia76

#Joker is a masterpiece. It's FUCKED UP. This film is sinister and uncomfortable in the best way; I'm actually just shocked it exists… This is a DC film. And it is DARK AND DISTURBING. I am in pure awe and I'm actually delirious. I was not at all expecting that… #Venezia76 pic.twitter.com/tFFVGR2Alh

#JokerMovie is the type of film that defines an actor's career, type of role & character that comes once in a lifetime. Heath Ledger's #Joker redefined the character, but Phoenix cements it as one of the greatest, darkest villains in cinematic history. All hail Joaquin Phoenix!

Just as well I’m under embargo right now because I have no words anyway. In fact, I need a lie down. #joker

#Venezia76 The #Joker we fucking deserve. Rings of comedy, rings of fire. It's a circus, it's a carnival, it's a mayhem. Phoenix brings us dancing through this social disease and it's a triumph. #JokerMovie

I can’t quite believe how good Joker is. It’s a masterpiece. Funny, dark, beautiful, full of rage, and really fucking cool. Joaquin Phoenix is masterful and every shot is sublime. #Venezia76

We’ll have to wait and see what the full reviews say when they hit, but it’s looking as though we may have a good film on the way. The most recent trailer has just gotten us that much more excited for the Todd Phillips project, and it seems there may be some awards in Joaquin Phoenix‘s future.
Joker will hit theaters on Ovt. 4.
