Joker Fire Movie Under Fire For Extras Treatment

It's reported that extras taking part in a subway scene in the Joker movie were locked on a subway vehicle for more than three hours in NYC, and that it got so bad, that people started urinating on the tracks.

They were filming a scene at a station in Brooklyn and were said to be turned down for their break after two-hours.

No one was laughing on the set of the Joaquin Phoenix-led Joker movie over the weekend. They were denied, so they began to urinate through the spaces between cars. They started to bang on the subway doors, demanding to be let out so others could use the rest room. One of the extras complained to SAG-AFTRA about an alleged violation of rules.

The union had no comment, but a source familiar with the incident confirmed a complaint was made regarding a break violation and a SAG-AFTRA rep went immediately to the set and the situation was resolved, with the union following up with production.


That's right. Urine has been introduced into the New York City subway system for the first time ever.

Warner Brothers claimed they were looking into the altercation, but they told Variety they had no more comments to make.

Also on the bill are Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Marc Maron and Brett Cullen, as Thomas Wayne, Bruce Wayne's father.

"Joker" is slated for release in Irish cinemas on October 4th, 2019.
