Anyone that was excited by reports that began to circulate about Alec Baldwin taking on the role of Thomas Wayne in Warner Bros. Joker film a few days ago, better not let themselves get too excited. Turns out the actor isn’t diving into the world of Gotham City after all.

Taking to Twitter, Baldwin shot down the reports about him taking on the role as well as possibly the other reports that seemed to indicate the film’s version of Wayne would be the 1980’s version of Donald Trump.

Since that didn’t nessicarily answer if he ever had been up for the role, Baldwin clarified his position with USA Today stating that he was connected to the film at one point but no longer.

“I’m no longer doing that movie,” Baldwin said and attributed the departure to scheduling issues. “I’m sure there are 25 guys who can play that part.”

With Baldwin out, someone else will now be found to step into the shoes of Bruce Wayne’s dad to star alongside Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker and a cast that includes Marc Maron, Zazie Beetz, and Robert De Niro.

Directed by Todd Phillips, Joker opens on October 4, 2019.
