‘Joker’ set video shows Joaquin Phoenix in his full costume and makeup

Yesterday Joker director Todd Phillips released a video showing Joaquin Phoenix in a costume with makeup on, and now we know why! He wanted to get ahead of the set photos and videos.

TMZ just shared a Joker set video that shows Joaquin Phoenix in his full costume, complete with his green hair and makeup. The scene was shot in a NYC subway station and shows a crowd rioting and running in fear. It’s not clear if it’s The Joker they’re running from, it doesn’t appear like it to me based on the video. Check it out above!

For some cool set photos of this scene, head on over to Hollywood Pipeline.

Joker will shoot in NYC through the end of the year. It hits theaters on October 4, 2019.
