Pretty much as expected, following director Todd Phillips releasing the test footage, now Joaquin Phoenix has been spotted on set in the full Joker makeup.
The scene took place at the Bronx Subway Station in New York City and involved Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker in a riot scene with a bunch of extras wearing clown masks.
Just Jared has images from the scene with Joaquin Phoenix wearing the Joker signature burgundy suit and gold vest.

Joaquin Phoenix Joker
Previous leaked set images and video footage showed off Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck exiting a building, arguing with a clown and then throwing the clown nose down the street.
The Joker origin movie centers around the iconic arch nemesis of Batman and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of a man disregarded by society is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale. The film follows the transformation of a struggling stand-up comedian to a full-blown criminal force of nature.
The movie stars Robert DeNiro as a talk show host; with Deadpool 2's Zazie Beetz playing a single mom who catches the interest of the man who will become the clown prince of crime; Marc Maron is the agent responsible for getting the Joker on DeNiro's talk show, with the film also starring Frances Conroy and Josh Pais.
Joker has an October 4, 2019 release date.
