Actor Alec Baldwin, who suffered a serious operation, will play Batman’s father in a new film about the villain Joker. This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
If you believe the original story, the father of superhero Thomas Wayne was a rich industrialist and millionaire. His murder pushed his son to fight crime in Gotham. At the funeral of parents, Bruce Wayne (Batman) vowed to avenge their death.
The publication reports that Thomas Wayne in the performance of Baldwin will be a tanned, ridiculous businessman, reminiscent of Donald Trump in the 1980s. For the actor depicting Trump on the show Saturday Night Live, this is already quite a familiar role.
However, a little later it became known that Alec Baldwin refused to participate in the film “Joker”.
“I’m sure there are about 25 other actors who could play this role,” Baldwin commented.
Recall, the film directed by Todd Phillips will be released on October 4, 2019, the same picture will be called “Joker”. Filming will begin in September this year in New York, the producer will make Martin Scorsese. Actor Joaquin Phoenix will become the new Joker in a separate, solo film.
