Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz and Todd Phillips attend

Joker First Reactions Twitter Roundup

I love that kind of fear. And without a doubt-long time DC fans will be spending a lot of time unpacking the many story revelations and questions this harrowing cautionary tale raises.

Phoenix reimagines one of cinema's most recognisable villains in the film, with the story of Arthur Fleck, a vulnerable loner struggling to survive in the rage-scorched streets of Gotham.

But the cackle was just one component of the character Phoenix was trying to create during filming - which he said changed nearly daily.

"For me, the attraction to make this film and this character was that we were going to approach it in our own way", he mused.

He said: "I wanted the freedom to create something that wasn't identifiable".

"Throughout the course of shooting, every day felt like we were discovering new aspects of the character and shades of his personality, up until the very last day".

Bold, devastating and utterly lovely, Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix have not just reimagined one of the most iconic villains in cinema history, but reimagined the comic book movie itself.

Director of the festival Alberto Barbera, Joaquin Phoenix, director Todd Phillips and president of the festival Paolo Baratta in Venice, Italy. More character study than comic book movie, and anchored by an Oscar-worthy Joaquin Phoenix, Joker is a bravura blockbuster that proves you don't need superpowered scraps to dazzle.

Directed by Todd Phillips, known for The Hangover, Joker centres on Batman's archnemesis and the events that led to him becoming a villain.

If the Joker movie does get the Best Picture nod, it would be the second comic book movie ever to do so, with Marvel's Black Panther having been nominated for the top Academy Award earlier this year.

According to Variety, the crowd stood cheering for eight minutes at the end of Joker for a lengthy standing ovation with some calling for the film to get attention during awards season.
