Warner Bros. Studio is teasing audiences with sneak peek photos leading up to the release of Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix.

More shots of Phoenix as the villainous Joker of Gotham City have surfaced on the internet, this time from the set of the forthcoming DC standalone origin story film.



The photos were taken during filming of a scene in a Bronx subway station in New York City. The 43-year-old actor is seen strolling amidst pandemonium in a burgundy suit with green-streaked hair and clown makeup.

Reactions were mixed after this batch of photos featuring Phoenix as Batman's arch enemy appeared.

But fans remained hopeful after discovering the nature of the film's origin story.


The seasoned actor's portrayal of the iconic psychopath will no doubt be something to remember.





Director Todd Phillips had revealed one of the first photos of Phoenix as the Joker (aka Arthur Fleck) without the character's signature garb and makeup.

Fans quickly drew some comparisons to the latest iteration of the Joker, sans makeup.







The movie will take place in the '80s and will focus on the character as a failed stand-up comedian who goes insane and turns to a life of crime in Gotham City.

The new photos have fans champing at the bit, but they'll have to be patient to see how the madness unfolds when the film is released on October 4, 2019.

The cast of Joker also includes Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Marc Maron, and Bryan Callen.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
