American actor and comedian Alec Baldwin is all set to play the father of caped crusader, Bruce Wayne a.k.a Batman, in Warner Bros.' stand-alone movie centered on DC's clown prince of crime, Joker.

The script paints Baldwin's Thomas Wayne as a cheesy and tanned businessman who is more in the mould of a 1980s Donald Trump, confirmed The Hollywood Reporter.
