Alec Baldwin has quit the cast for the Joker film which also stars Joaquin Phoenix. Two days ago the actor had joined the cast for the film and the veteran actor was supposed to play the role of Thoma Wayne in the film and portray the role of Bruce Wayne’s father and this was just the beginning a story which would tell us how the rivalry between Joker and The Batman started.
Alec Baldwin was in an interview with USA today and the actor had outlined that he quit the role because of some scheduling issues and that was the reason for his departure he stated “I’m no longer doing that movie. I’m sure there are 25 guys who can play that part.”
The actor also took this issue on his official twitter where he wrote “Let me state, for the record, that I have not been hired to play a role in Todd Phillips’ JOKER as some Donald Trump manque. That is not happening.”

The official description of the film reads “Under the direction of Todd Phillips, the film centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of a man disregarded by society is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
The Film Joker will be showing us the story of Joker, how he turned into the Crazy maniac clown, also DC never showed the story of Thomas Wayne except for the comics. This time we will get to see the story of Thomas Wayne and how his wife Martha Wayne lose their life, is joker really behind their death??
The film will also be starring Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz and Frances Conroy, and Warner Bros will be releasing the movie on October 9, 2019. A story that will tell us the about the start of the biggest rivalry in the DC universe.
