Over the weekend Joaquin Phoenix was back in costume on the set of Joker. It’s been a little while since we had any set photography but you can always rely on JustJared to come up with the goods.
Once again the crew was filming on the transport system in New York. Phoenix was spotted switching between his Arthur and Joker personas for the scenes. Hit up the tweet below for the full gallery.

Joker centres around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
The film stars Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, also starring are Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.
Phillips directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with writer Scott Silver, based on characters from DC. The film is being produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. It is executive produced by Richard Baratta, Joseph Garner and Bruce Berman.
Joker will be released on October 4, 2019. For all our Joker coverage head to our archive!
