The Joker origin story stars Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker, Zazie Beetz as Sophie Dumond, Robert De Niro as Murray Franklin, Bryan Callen, Shea Whigham, Frances Conroy as Penny Fleck, Glenn Fleshler, Brett Cullen as Thomas Wayne, Marc Maron as Ted Marco, and Douglas Hodge as Alfred Pennyworth

Here is the official synopsis of the film:

Joker centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
