According to a report from TMZ, extras on the set of the new Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix were trapped on subway cars in Brooklyn for approximately three hours this past weekend.

Depp claims upon their first meeting, Rowling told him: "I can't wait to see what you do with the character". I came in and it all seemed to work out. "He's not a fun character; he's not amusing ".

As per TMZ, the extras had been refused to take a break after two hours of filming and were locked inside subway cars, which propelled them to urinate on the subway tracks through the gaps between the cars. The studio told Variety it had no further comment on Wednesday.

It is directed by Todd Phillips - of The Hangover fame - and Martin Scorsese was initially involved as producer, though he later dropped out. Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham also star.
