New Cast Announced for ‘Joker’ Origin Movie

The production has started for the Joker origin movie. Todd Phillips sure has shown us that they are not joking around with the first look we got a few days ago. Now that Brett Cullen replaces Alec Baldwin in the movie as Thomas Wayne, Warner Bros. decided to release a press release with the full list of cast members that will be joining the legendary film.

The people we knew for sure to join this film, were Joaquin Phoenix, Robert DeNiro, Marc Maron, and Brett Cullen. There was a lot of debate if Zazie Beetz would or would not join the cast, but the confirmation finally came. Next, to these legendary people, we also have Bill Camp, known for his work in Molly’s Game, Frances Conroy (Castle Rock), Glenn Fleshler (Billions), Shea Whigham (Kong: Skull Island), Josh Pais (That Awkward Moment), and Douglas Hodge (Robin Hood).

This makes an excellent cast for this movie, and we can’t wait for what this will give on the big screen. Other details about the characters that the new members of the cast will portray are non-existent. Of course, this is to keep the movie a mystery and exciting for everyone involved.

Even though Todd Phillips already named the character on his Instagram ‘Arthur,’ the press release also said that the movie would take you through Arthur Fleck‘s life. They call him a man that’s ‘disregarded by society,’ which puts us closer to the Alan Moore storyline of The Killing Joke.

The thing that caught my attention was that Todd Phillips would be working together with Bradley Cooper under the Joint Effort brand as producers.

Another thing that made me very excited is that Oscar-winning costume designer Mark Bridges will be joining the team on this movie. He’s known for his work in Phantom Thread, The Artist, and Jason Bourne.

What do you think of this amazing cast and team behind the movie? Let us know in the comments below.

Joker will hit the theaters on October 4, 2019.
