Brett Cullen Cast as Thomas Wayne in 'The Joker'

Cullen replaces Alec Baldwin, who was first announced in the role only to immediately drop out.

Joker has moved from point A to point B in the casting process - literally. As you'll no doubt remember, Alec Baldwin was the previous occupant of this part, but less than 48 hours after the announcement, Baldwin himself revealed he wouldn't be playing Thomas Wayne after all.

Initially, Baldwin was more than willing to star in the origin movie, but he chose not to because of scheduling conflicts.

Coming to us by way of Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix, another titan of the industry, Joker has been pitched as a "gritty character study" about DC's Clown Prince of Crime, who will go by the name of "Arthur" when the lights go down next October.

The prequel to the Batman films will show how the Joker became the eponymous villain. In Phillips' film, Wayne will reportedly be portrayed as a 1980s businessman in the vein of Donald Trump rather than an altruistic physician. Pictures. This will actually be Cullen's second time in the Batman universe, after his supporting role in The Dark Knight Rises as Bane's ally, Congressman Byron Gilley.

In the comics, Thomas Wayne is a philanthropist in Gotham City. I remain unconvinced a solo Joker film can work, but I'll be happy to be proved wrong. The movie, which comes out next year, features the likes of Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Marc Maron, as well as Robert De Niro.
