“Happy” and “You Were Never Really Here” actor Dante Pereira-Olson has been cast as a kid Bruce Wayne in the upcoming “Joker” film at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Pereira-Olson will appear alongside Brett Cullen in the previously announced role of Bruce’s father Thomas Wayne. Additionally, Douglas Hodge (“The Night Manager,” “Penny Dreadful”) has joined the cast as their butler Alfred Pennyworth.
While Thomas Wayne is thought to be a full supporting character in the film, it’s expected Bruce will be only a cameo. Whether the future Batman will cross paths with Joaquin Phoenix’s Clown Prince of Crime in the film is unclear.
Zazie Beetz, Marc Maron and Robert De Niro co-star in the Todd Phillips-directed film which will be released October 4th 2019.
