Last week, director Todd Phillips shared the first image of Joaquin Phoenix as Batman foe The Joker in a pretty cool video teaser—and now you may catch a glimpse of the Clown Prince of Crime IRL around NYC. The above photo shows Amusement Mile, a district in Old Gotham created in Harlem last week. And over the weekend, the film's production took over the Bedford Park Boulevard station in the Bronx (props to filming in the real NYC subway system), delivering us this footage:

The video shows Phoenix, in classic Joker attire, calmly and confidently exiting a subway car as passengers run off in a frenzy behind him. Some of his supporters are wearing clown masks and holding "Clown 4 Mayor" signs, some are beating up a man on the platform (possibly Thomas Wayne?), while some straphangers just want to get the hell out of there.

Here's a look at the action on the train car:

Major plot points are being kept under wraps, but the film will focus on The Joker's origin story, and word is his real name will be Arthur Fleck (which has never been used in the comics before).

We'll have to wait until October 4th, 2019 for the movie to drop, but they'll be filming around town in coming weeks, and today (Monday 9/24) they're setting up shop in DUMBO (the production signs are labeled "Romeo").
