‘Joker’ Movie Extras Locked In Subway Car & Forced To Pee On Tracks!

TMZ reports the extras filming the scene in Brooklyn were locked in the train auto and denied their break after two hours of work. Eventually, some extras resorted to urinating on the tracks through the small spaces between cars after being kept inside the train despite banging on the doors requesting to use the bathroom. One of the extras complained to SAG-AFTRA about an alleged violation of rules.

People are making the same joke, pardon the pun, about new set footage that's leaked from the in-production Joker film starring Joaquin Phoenix.

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) is said to have received a complaint about the incident about the break time violation and sent a rep to resolve the situation.

Warner Bros. told TMZ that it is looking into the situation as well.

The movie is a prequel to the Batman films, showing how the Joker became a criminal mastermind after failing as a stand-up comedian.

Directed and co-written by Todd Phillips, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix as the title character, along with Robert De Niro, Marc Maron, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, and Bill Camp.

Despite a varied bag of responses, Suicide Squad, already, has garnered a cult following, with some hailing Jared's performance while others hated it.

What's interesting about Phoenix's look as the Clown Prince of Crime is that the suit seems like a blend of Cesar Romero's when he played the role in the 1960s series and Heath Ledger's when he took on the role in 2008's The Dark Knight.
