'Joker' Movie Extras Piss on Train Tracks When You Gotta Go ...

10/10/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Things got nasty on the set of the upcoming "Joker" movie over the weekend ... we're told extras were locked on a subway car for more than 3 hours, and it got so bad some people started peeing on the tracks. 

Sources on set tell TMZ ... extras for the movie were filming a scene in a Brooklyn subway station and they were locked in a train car and denied their break after 2 hours of work ... leading to a sticky situation. 

The extras started banging on the subway doors asking to be let out because people needed to use the bathroom, but they were kept inside and eventually resorted to pissing on the tracks through the small spaces between cars.  

We've learned SAG received a complaint about a break time violation and they sent a rep to the set to resolve the situation ... and SAG will continue to follow up and monitor the set. 

Warner Bros. tells TMZ they're looking into what went down on the tracks. 

Joaquin Phoenix The Joker's on the Move

9/22/2018 1:51 PM PDT

Joaquin Phoenix keeps giving us a little more as The Joker -- this time he's in full costume as The Jester of Genocide ... and he's all smiles about it.

Check it out -- it's the first look at Phoenix in makeup on set as the notorious villain of Gotham City. The filming was going down inside an NYC subway station in Uptown, Manhattan. You see The Joker get off the train in a mask ... which he really didn't need.

As we reported ... Joaquin's "Joker" look was revealed Friday by Warner Bros. in a short promo, showing the transformation from Arthur Fleck to the Clown Prince.

But, even when he's just Arthur ... he's still pretty creepy.

This flick is an origin film about Batman's archenemy. Announced costars include Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Marc Maron and Bryan Callen. Martin Scorsese is producing and Todd Phillips is directing.

It's scheduled to come out next October ... just in time for Halloween 2019.

Joaquin Phoenix Why So Serious? There's a New Joker in Town!!!

9/21/2018 10:52 AM PDT

Joaquin Phoenix is gonna make you remember -- if you'd even forgot -- why clowns are so damn creepy ... by revealing the new big screen Joker.

Filming for "Joker" just got started this month and Warner Bros. just pulled back the curtain on Joaquin in full makeup. The studio dropped this time-lapse video of him getting into character.   

This flick is an origin film about Batman's archenemy ... so we'll get a new, closer look at how Arthur Fleck became Gotham's clown prince of crime.

So far, Joaquin's announced costars include Robert De Niro, Zazie BeetzMarc Maron and Bryan Callen. Martin Scorsese is producing and Todd Phillips, of "The Hangover" fame, is directing.

It's scheduled to come out next October. Bring on the creepiness. 

Bryan Callen Bruce Wayne Has A Little Wang

9/21/2018 10:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bryan Callen thinks Batman should keep on his Batsuit ... 'cause we now know there's nothing all that special about Bruce Wayne's birthday suit.

We got Bryan at LAX and showed him DC's new adult comic with images of Batman's manhood ... and the comedian tells us the Batcave is, umm ... lacking. 

His point is, size does matter -- for superheroes -- and Bruce Wayne just ain't getting it done.

Bryan, who has a role in the upcoming "Joker" movie, explains why he thought Batman would be more gifted and tells us which comic book heroes are packing ... most likely. 

The Dark Knight's penis shows up 4 times in "Batman: Damned," and the uncensored version is only available in print editions of the adults-only comic. In the online version, DC has darkened the image, but you can check out the original here

Don't be shy, Bryan says there's nothing to fear. 

Bruce Wayne Drops the Utility Belt Reveals His Bat Penis in New Comic

9/19/2018 4:13 PM PDT

Batman fans are getting a good hard look at Bruce Wayne like never before -- 'cause the Dark Knight's manhood is on display in a new comic that's definitely not for kids. 

DC just added a new installment to their Black Label series with "Batman: Damned" -- which is pretty much graphic novels for adults ... only, in this case, it's REALLY graphic. In the new Batsy publication that just recently dropped, you see a full-on naked Bruce Wayne ... but you'll only be able to see his penis on certain platforms. Allow us to explain. 

The uncensored version of the member only shows up in print editions of 'Batman: Damned,' which are out in comic book stores now. It depicts a slightly obscured shot of Bruce's penis -- but you can definitely still see it in the shadow... head, shaft and all. In the online version, however, DC has darkened the image ... and you can only make out vague traces of his penis. 

If you wanna see the real McCoy, you can check it out here

Sources close to Batman tell us that Black Label stories are not intended for children -- while also pointing out that Batman's penis shows up a total of 4 times in this particular comic.

Forget everything you knew about the Batsuit ... it's birthday suit country now in Gotham.

Black Panther & Robin Join Forces For ... Super Power Lunch

8/14/2018 10:50 AM PDT

Chadwick Boseman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt crossed comic book lines for a little POW wow while chowing down ... superhero costumes, sadly, not included.

The Black Panther and Robin grabbed a bite to eat Monday afternoon in L.A. and, judging by the huge grins on their mugs ... it hit the spot. We're guessing they didn't compare Marvel and DC box office numbers. Let's be honest, Joseph wouldn't be smiling if that was the case.

Maybe King T'Challa's just in the market for a new sidekick? In yo' face, Dark Knight!

Don't call them nerds anymore. They look like they can kick your ass ... and in style. 

Stan Lee New Restraining Order Filed Against Keya Morgan

7/6/2018 3:48 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

5:24 PM PT -- Morgan tells us, "For over 10 years I have shown nothing but love, respect & kindness to Stan Lee, & his wife, a fact he has repeated countless times."

He continues, "This is a witchhunt by his daughter and her lawyer against me because she cannot stand the fact Stan likes me so much. I will 100% prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the allegations against me are false. The truth will come out."Stan Lee's legal battle with business partner Keya Morgan has intensified ... with ANOTHER restraining order.

Stan's legal team was in court Friday and requested the restraining order granted last month against Morgan to be dismissed. Stan's lawyers argued the first order -- submitted by attorney Tom Lallas on Stan's behalf -- should be voided as Lallas hadn't repped Stan for months. 

The judge agreed -- tossed the order -- and Lee's legal team filed a new restraining order against Morgan.

In the new docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Stan's attorneys claim Morgan's mishandled more than $5 million of Stan's money and he's suffered severe physical and emotional injuries because of Morgan. The docs also claim Keya's tried to isolate Stan from his family and moved him to an undisclosed location last month.

Kirk Schenck, a legal rep for Lee tells us, “The Lee Family is conducting its own investigation, and working with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and the LAPD, in various investigations into Keya Morgan’s and others’ who may have taken advantage of the Lee Family.  We will not comment further on the ongoing investigations for witness and evidentiary protection.”

We reached out to Morgan for comment ... so far, no word back.

'It' Star Jack Dylan Grazer New Role in 'Shazam!' Could Make Him Millions!!!

6/29/2018 5:34 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jack Dylan Grazer -- otherwise known as Eddie of the Losers' Club in the "It" movie -- has a good shot at making some scary money ... in an upcoming superhero franchise.

According to Jack's contract -- obtained by TMZ -- he's going to bank at least $150k for his role as Freddy Freeman in the 2019 DC Comics film "Shazam!" ... starring Zachary Levi.

It gets better -- he can make up to $200k more in box office bonuses ... and gets a cut of the movie's merchandise cash.

But get this -- if there's a "Shazam!" sequel, Grazer's pay more than doubles to $400,000 with up to $300k in bonuses ... and his salary will DOUBLE for every additional installment of the film franchise after that.

Jack's only 14, so there's a good chance he could be swimming in millions by the time he's old enough to vote ... as long as "Shazam!" is a bit more successful than "Kazaam."

Gal Gadot & Chris Pine Get New 'Wonder Woman' Costar ... Sweet Fanny Pack, Bro!!!

6/13/2018 3:45 PM PDT

Chris Pine is back from the dead, or part of a ridiculous dream sequence, in the next 'Wonder Woman' flick ... based on pics from the set. Ummm ... spoiler alert?

Chris was spotted Wednesday in Virginia with costar Gal Gadot. We knew Chris was returning to his role of Steve Trevor, but since he died in the first one ... we don't how HOW he's coming back. There's a big clue, we think, in this pic. Two words: FANNY. PACK. 

The sequel is set in 1984, so the stylish wardrobe piece makes sense.

Since the sequel fast forwards about 66 years, we're guessing science or time travel has to be involved for Steve to still be alive -- but it can't be a dream sequence. NO ONE would include a fanny pack in a dream!

We do know, Gal and Chris will battle Kristen Wiig, who's playing supervillain ... Cheetah. 

Jason Momoa I'm Aquaman, For Reals!!! Watch Me Save My Phone

6/8/2018 10:43 AM PDT

Jason Momoa purposely hurled his phone into the open ocean to prove a point -- he's not just an actor, man ... he's a real-life Aquaman.

Momoa lived up to his superhero alter ego in the water off Honolulu. Looks like he was playing a game of chicken with his phone -- tossing it and then flaunting his skills by diving in to retrieve it.

No proof from the pics that he pulled off the rescue, but we'd bet on Jason. 

He had been filming reshoots for "Aquaman," which comes out later this year, but looks like this stunt was pulled during his off time.

After all, Aquaman ain't rocking board shorts -- although, as long as Momoa has got the role, no one would complain.

Stan Lee Missing $300k Cops Investigating Forged Check

12/29/2017 5:02 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Stan Lee's checking account is $300k light, and cops are on the hunt for the perp who swiped the cash ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the Marvel Comics legend filed a report with Beverly Hills PD Tuesday after one of Stan's business partners discovered the money had been withdrawn without his knowledge. After some digging, it was discovered a $300k check was written to a merchandising company, Hands of Respect, for a "loan."

Sources tell us neither Stan or his money managers wrote or authorized the transaction, and Bev Hills PD is investigating the case as a check forgery.

We're told Stan's people believe this might be an inside job -- someone within the foundation wrote the check in an attempt to keep the cash themselves.

Either way, it's not a very nice bday gift for the comic book icon ... who just turned 95 on Thursday.

Kanye West Movie Night With Kid Cudi

11/28/2017 7:21 AM PST

Kanye West and Kid Cudi got their fill of caped crusaders, and at the same time fueled rumors they're working on new music together. 

The dynamic duo took in "Justice League" Monday in L.A. -- and the looks on their faces indicate they at least liked it more than critics (not saying much, we know). 'Ye and Cudi have been reconnecting recently ... Kanye hopped onstage with him a few weeks ago in Chicago.

There's a rumor out that 'Ye will be producing Cudi's new album, something that hasn't happened since Cudder's 2008 debut. Cudi eventually parted ways with G.O.O.D Music in 2013.

We don't know if this was a break from the studio or just two pals catching up, but all signs point to justice prevailing ... for music fans.
