Following that pretty incredible first look at Joaquin Phoenix fully suited up as the Clown Prince of Crime last night, some new photos have been revealed featuring Zazie Beetz’s (Deadpool 2) character.
Shooting is well underway on Joker in New York City and that means we’re being treated to an impressive number of set photos. The latest batch put the spotlight on Zazie Beetz’s Sophie Dumond, a character who has previously been described as a single mother who catches the eye of Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck (they live in the same building after he returns home to care for his mother).
Apparently, Arthur was running after her during this scene, so it’s possible that the two of them may have fallen out. Regardless, Joker director Todd Phillips was quick to take to Instagram to share an official look at the character and she definitely looks like someone who is worn out by living in Gotham City! Just how important she’ll be to Arthur Fleck’s eventual transformation remains to be seen.
What do you guys think of this first look at Sophie? Could she be Joker‘s version of Harley Quinn?
