Role Call #4 Crowning The Next Clown Prince Of Crime In The Batman
With the reveal that the Joker will play a big role in Director Matt Reeves The Batman (which is being planned as a trilogy) who should play the clown prince of crime? After an Academy Award-winning performance by actor Joaquin Phoenix which actor would have the intestinal fortitude to step into the role next? These are HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience’s suggestions:
The What We Do In The Shadows & JoJo Rabbit director is hilarious with fantastic comedic timing. The only thing we have yet to see him do is play a sadistic murderer. Plus I’m sure he doesn’t want to his thankless role in Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern film to be his only footprint in the DCEU.
The Uncut Gems & Death Note star has been campaigning to be the first black Joker for some time. He’s even dressed up as the Joker.
The actor toldDeadlinein December 2018 he was certain it would happen one day, adding, “I want people to dress up as me as black Joker, when that inevitably happens.” During an interview withColliderthis week, Stanfield took his vision to the next level by throwing out a dream collaboration with Josh and Benny Safdie for the project. “What I’d bring to it would have a lot to do with who I collaborate with, and how the story’s written and what world we exist in, and then I’ll go do my lil magic,” Stanfield said when asked how he wants to move forward with his Joker movie. “Wouldn’t it be crazy if me and the Safdies did something like that?”
This would be a wild reunion for Dafoe and Robert Pattinson as the two previously starred in the eerie black & white film, The Lighthouse. Dafoe is a force of nature who has already played one iconic comic book villain, the Green Goblin in Spider-Man. He definitely has the crazy to embody the role of the Joker.
Now I know what you are thinking, Depp would just Jack Sparrow this up. But what if he instead made this into the next iconic portrayal of the Joker? Depp is a mastermind when it comes to creating new characters with mannerisms, quirks, and whatnot. The result could be amazing.
Well, that’s who HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience would pick but what do you think? Do you agree/disagree with these suggestions? Who would you cast? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned to future Role Calls only on The HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience!
