Yesterday, Warner Bros. officially announced Joker, and now more casting news is starting to come in.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Deadpool 2 star Zazie Beetz is in talks to join Joaquin Phoenix and the cast of Joker. It sounds like she’d be a love interest, THR describes the role as “a single mother who catches the interest of the man who will become the Clown Prince of Crime”.

Even more casting news should be on the way soon since Joker starts shooting in September in New York City. It will hit theaters on October 4, 2019.
