Joker director Todd Phillips seems to be having a hell of a time working on the DC film. Every five seconds we’ve been treated to a new image from the film, and today is no exception. This time around, it looks like we have a less-polished set photo.

In the photo, we can see a man (presumably Phoenix, but it’s hard to be 100% sure) dressed as a clown sitting on some electric equipment. I guess this could be him filming a scene, but given the stingers and random equipment, I’d guess it to be a true behind-the-scenes look at Phoenix contemplating his place in life.

This image confirms the idea that this story will follow the basic premise of The Killing Joke, which sees the villain — in this case, Arthur Fleck — get his origin as a failed comedian. In the film, I assume we’ll see him have that “one bad day” that transforms him into the Clown Prince of Crime we know him to be.

I don’t know about you, but Phoenix looks to me like he’s having quite the bad day himself. Anyway, this lends credence to the idea that we’ll actually get to see the character’s look evolve over the course of the film. From what we’ve heard, that initial look we had in the video last Friday wasn’t necessarily the final look in the movie (in that it’s not the final look he’ll take on at the end, even if the look is in the movie itself), but this one even looks even further removed from the Joker we know and love, which is a good thing for someone who’s actually trying to make it as a clown.

What do you think of this set image? Sound off down below!
