Early footage shows Arthur walking by a sign for Amusement Mile, Gotham City's version of Coney Island, which features prominently in the original Killing Joke graphic novel. Joker cocreator Bill Finger was partly inspired by a sign for Steeplechase Park in the real Coney Island which featured a grotesque grinning face.
This is Zazie Beetz's second comic book movie after DEADPOOL 2 (2018).
This is Bill Camp and Douglas Hodge's first collaboration since RED SPARROW (2018), which also starred Jeremy Irons who plays Alfred in the DCEU.
