Director Todd Phillips has revealed the first look at Joker co-star Zazie Beetz via Instagram. Though an earlier story indicated that Beetz would be playing a single mother who catches the interest of the Joker, little is known beyond that; Phillips’s photo certainly offers no additional clues.

Thus far, the only official images released have been of Beetz and star Joaquin Phoenix. The movie is currently filming in New York City, so expect more set photos — like these of the two stars, from Just Jared — in the near future.

The Joker movie is due in theaters in 2019.
