An earlier headshot of Phoenix in the film called him Arthur. Fans quickly connected that to Arthur Fleck, Joker in The Killing Joker.

Phoenix’s look could still change as the film isn’t due out for another year. But fans approved of the video, where the normal version of “Aruthur” smiles and transforms into the Pagliacci-inspired Joker.
