New York City became Gotham City on Sunday as, Joaquin Phoenix tore through the streets in full Joker garb and makeup. 

The actor was spotted filming an intense chase scene for his forthcoming Joker film while sporting a gaudy red suit, green hair and bright clown makeup.

The actor's stunt double was also on hand for the scene, which saw the Joker getting hit by a taxi.

Directed by Todd Phillips, the movie is set in the '80s and follows failed standup comedian Arthur Fleck as he devolves into a criminal clown. 

Joker is set to hit theaters on October 4, 2019.

Camera test (w/ sound). Joker.
