JustJared are back with another gallery of exclusive set photos from Joker. The cast and crew of the movie were back filming on New York’s public transport system with Joaquin Phoenix in full costume.
This latest batch of photos follow closely what we’ve seen in previous scenes. As members of the public dressed as clowns flood the transport system the GCPD seem unable to control the chaos. Joaquin Phoenix in full Joker garb casually strolls past the cops whilst the chaos continues.
The gallery also shows off some extremely close up shots of Phoenix in the makeup. These are easily some of our best looks at his outfit to date. Check them out at the link below.

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!
