10 Things You Need To Know Before Watching Joker

There's plenty to know even for you none DC buffs.

Warner Bros.

Joker hits screens next Friday with high expectations surrounding it, given the excitement the trailers have generated and the early reviews and comments from critics.

Joaquin Phoenix is the man tasked with bringing Joker to life once again, following on from the likes of Heath Ledger and Jared Leto in more recent times.

The film will, for the first time, take us into the backstory of the 'Clown Prince of Crime' as Phoenix plays the part of Arthur Fleck, a troubled and failing comedian who inevitably descends into darkness to become Batman's arch nemesis. Director Todd Phillips will be hoping to take cinema-goers on a journey into the character mind which hasn't been delved into previously, meaning there is, rightly, big hopes for the film to be a huge success.
