In addition to focusing on its titular character, Joker will feature Batman characters such as Thomas Wayne. Now, the film has added two more characters to its cast.
Actors Dante Pereira-Olson (You Were Never Really Here) and Douglas Hodge (The Night Manager) have joined Joker as Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth, respectively. (Shoutout to our friends at Revenge of the Fans for breaking the news on Pereira-Olson’s casting.)
No details are known on how Bruce and Alfred fit into this particular story, but it’s clear that Joker will explore a time before the Wayne parents are murdered. Also, in this continuity, Joker seems to be a lot older than Bruce, which is different from the usual canon. But Joker has touted itself as a truly standalone, Elseworld-esque story, so it can do whatever it wants.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it. Joker hits theaters on October 4th, 2019.
