Alec Baldwin had been all set to play Batman’s father Thomas Wayne. But the actor says he has dropped out of Joker, the film project about the DC villain starring Joaquin Phoenix.

“I’m no longer doing that movie,” Baldwin told USA Today.

On Monday, news broke that the actor was in talks to play Thomas Wayne in Todd Phillips’ Joker stand-alone movie.

In comic book world, Thomas Wayne is a physician, philanthropist and father to Bruce Wayne (the future Batman). Sources on Monday told The Hollywood Reporter that in a departure from the comics, the Joker script called for Thomas Wayne to be a shrewd businessman who is more in the mold of a 1980s Donald Trump.

Alec Baldwin is citing “scheduling issues” as his reason for dropping out. But he also addressed the new take on Wayne.

Alec, who recently earned a second Emmy nomination for playing Trump on Saturday Night Live, tweeted Wednesday that he had not “been hired to play a role in Todd Phillips’ JOKER as some Donald Trump manque. That is not happening.”

Phoenix will be seen playing the Joker, while other stars include Robert De Niro, Deadpool 2 breakout Zazie Beetz and GLOW actor Marc Maron. The film is all set to begin shooting in two weeks.

Warner Bros. has announced that Joker will be ready to open on 4th October, 2019.
