Warner Bros has released the first teaser trailer for ‘Joker,’ its upcoming classic movie on the origin story of Batman villain, ahead of the October 4 cinema release.

Directed by Todd Phillips, Joaquin Phoenix, movie star, plays the role of Arthur Fleck otherwise known as the ‘Joker’.

The Warner Bros trailer gives a snippet view into the life of Arthur, a comedian brutalised, beaten and later transformed into the classic villain in Batman’s Gotham city.

The teaser trailer beams its attention on establishing Arthur’s character, which paints him to be a troubled man on the verge of madness.

Despite being told by his mother to always keep a happy face and bring laughter and joy to the world, Arthur feels the world is becoming an increasingly cruel and crazy place. It appears this was why he chose to become the Joker.

Set in Gotham City way back in 1981, the story of the Batman’s super-villain starts out as the rather simple tale of a failed stand-up comedian who turns to a life of crime and creating chaos after his society has disregarded him.

Although ‘Joker’ seems to draw its inspiration from Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s classic graphic novel ‘Batman: The Killing Joke Batman’, there is no sighting of the legendary Batman in the teaser trailer.
