The news comes a day after director Todd Phillips revealed the first look as Phoenix as the future super villain (sans-makeup). The actor leads a cast that includes Robert De Niro, Deadpool 2's Zazie Beetz and Glow actor Marc Maron.
Cullen has experience with comic book films, having appeared in 2007's Ghost Rider and 2012's The Dark Knight Rises. On the small screen, he's had roles on Person of Interest, Queen of the South and Narcos.
Joker, which is filming now, is described as a crime drama that will not be part of the continuity of DC's other films, such as Aquaman and Wonder Woman.
