Just two days after it was announced that Alec Baldwin would be playing Batman’s father, Thomas Wayne, in Joaquin Phoenix's "Joker" movie, he revealed that he's exited the project.
"I'm no longer doing that movie," he told the outlet. "I'm sure there are 25 guys who can play that part."
Thomas Wayne first entered the comic-book lore in 1939, the father of Bruce Wayne and husband of Martha Wayne. A gifted physician and philanthropist to Gotham City, his and his wife’s murder would go on to serve as Bruce Wayne’s inspiration to become Batman and fight crime.
