Her role isn’t the only question mark: Robert De Niro is also rumored to be making an appearance. According to Variety, “The script has ties to De Niro's famed role in 1982's The King of Comedy, in which a failing comedian (De Niro) kidnaps a popular talk-show host to gain fame. In Joker, the roles would be reversed, with De Niro playing the smug host.”
