Good choice.

How about Jim Carrey?

I know he's already been used, but since we're apparently forgetting the old movies ever existed, why not?

It can't be a comedian. No Jim Carrey, no Robin Williams...




(Too old)

I'd like to see this guy in the gang of villains:

Like I said, good choice. Young Batman vs. Young Joker...I'm there.


(Too old)
Too Spider-Man

I'd like to see this guy in the gang of villains:

Just watched him in Closer, and loved his character. Might make a good two face.

I really hope they go one villian at a time from now on...

I got an idea for an approach when I looked at the back of The Killing Joke graphic novel. It shows a card with Batman on one end and the Joker on the other, which is supposed to show how they are linked as banes to each other existence and the flip side of the same coin.

After seeing him in American Psycho and shots of him in The Machinist, I was thinking Christian Bale could play both Batman and the Joker. It would definitely lend credence to Joker being Batman's arch-nemesis and him knowing him better than any other foe.

Mark Hamill could be a good Joker if he toned down his animated version a bit. Otherwise, Bruce Campbell!!!

I agree with Brody. He'd be excellent.

Like Chess's idea of Clive Owen as Two-face as well, he'd be great at that role.

Maybe Woody Harrelson for the Joker?

As for Harvey Dent, I'd like to see Ray Liotta.

Jack Nicholson. Since Cesar Romero is a definite no-go, Jack is the only choice for this role. He perfected it in Keaton's Batman and every actor under consideration for this role is going to do their level best to channel his performance.

I think that would be a mistake. Im sure Nolan doesnt want anyone comparing his film with Burton's, so why use the exact same actor?

good choice with Brody.

I read in another forum, Eccleston, but Brody would be better.

I really don't think it would be that great of a leap to re-cast Nicholson in the role. Sure, there will be some association with Burton's work but Nicholson's Joker is admittedly the best movie adapted villian to date. I personally don't see the problem with a little continuity by bringing Nicholson back.

Whoever they choose, the movie should still be Batman's, not the Joker's. The trap the other movies fell into was that too much emphasis was put on the villian, which is why Batman Begins works for me.

I agree with you that his performance was excellent and should have won him an Oscar, but I think re-casting him in the role would be a mistake.

They need to take it a difference direction IMO.

I had a discussion about this at work a few months ago. We all pretty much agreed that Johnny Depp would be able to pull it off. He practically already looks like him in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Brody, Really? He just looks too goofy to be the Joker.
