Joker has an October 4, 2019 release date directed by Todd Phillips and also stars Zazie Beetz as a single mother and the love interest of Joker, Robert DeNiro as a talk show host, Marc Maron is the agent responsible for getting the Joker on DeNiro’s talk show, with the film also starring Frances Conroy, Josh Pais, and Bret Cullen as Thomas Wayne.
The Joker origin movie centers around the iconic arch-nemesis of Batman and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen.
