Alec Baldwin to play Bruce Wayne''s father in ''Joker''
Los Angeles: Alec Baldwin has joined "Joker" with Joaquin Phoenix in the lead.
The 60-year-old actor will play the role of Bruce Wayne/ Batman's father, Thomas Wayne in the origin story of one of DC's most iconic antagonists.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources say the script portrays Thomas Wayne as a cheesy and tanned businessman who is more in the mould of a 1980s Donald Trump.
To be directed by Todd Phillips, the film is scheduled to begin shooting in a fortnight.
Phillips co-wrote the script with Scott Silver.
Also starring Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz and Frances Conroy, Warner Bros has set October 4, 2019 as release date.
