Joaquin Phoenix was seen in full makeup while shooting the new standalone Joker origins movie at a Brooklyn subway station. Stepping into Heath Ledger's shoes and assuming the role of such an iconic villain is definitely a tall task for Phoenix.
Robert De Niro is also working on the film and will reportedly play a television host. Some fans have speculated that the Joker will be depicted as an ordinary clown who spirals down into a life of psychotic crime sprees.
While there's currently no release date, the Joker film is expected to drop sometime in 2019.
