WATCH: Em, why was the 66′ Batmobile near the set of the Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie?

We’re honestly reporting this because if we miss it and something comes of it we’ll feel pretty silly.

A new video has appeared online (below) shows the Batmobile from the 1960s TV series on the set of the Joker movie currently filming in Newark, New Jersey.

The video is below.

Now, while we don’t doubt the Batmobile drove past the set, we honestly can’t see any conceivable reason for it to be IN the movie itself, especially given that actor rett Cullen has been cast as Thomas Wayne and is rumoured to be Gotham mayor – unless they’re going down the Flashpoint route which we seriously doubt. We’re hearing people say that this is a fan’s car and he took it there himself because he knew filming was going on.

WE’re reckoning that’s likely. But, given how much has already be leaked from the movie’s set of Joaquin Phoenix in clown make-up etc, we reckon there’s also a chance we’ll be getting misinformation too… being fed cool stuff as a distraction, so we can’t work out what’s happening in the movie.

Either way, it’s always cool to see this version of Batman’s signature ride… no matter the circumstances.



Joker centres around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.

Joker will be released in theaters on October 4, 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
