While the details of the plot are being kept secret, the studio has described the film as the story of a failed stand-up comedian who is driven insane and becomes a psychopathic criminal.  Principal photography began on September 10, 2018 in New York City with additional filming locations to be Jersey City and Newark.

Joaquin Phoenix stars as Arthur Fleck a.k.a Joker. He is the seventh actor to portray the Joker in a theatrical film. Based on the photos that have been released it looks like Joker was some sort of clown before he became the actual Joker.  Joker is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2019 so we can expect to see plenty of stills.
