Warner Bros. and DC are in the beginning stages of developing another Batman Universe spinoff movie, in which they will tell the origin story of The Joker. This film will be directed by Todd Phillips and is bringing on the talents of Martin Scorsese to produce. 

Who do you think would bring us the most interesting take on the character?

No offense, but do we really need ANOTHER Joker poll?

Jen,

I think in light of the origin story movie being announced (and the fact that a new joker is being chosen), I think the occasion more than warrants a poll.

Do you have any suggestions for other actors you think could do well in the role?

What i know there was only a rumor about that Leonardo DiCaprio should play The Joker in a stand alone Joker movie and Jared Leto should still play The Joker in the DCEU universe.

Well, it depends on whose Joker, and why the person made the poll. This is a reasonable poll. However, I think asking for a #1 Joker or best actor to play Joker, or whatever, is beating a dead horse. I don't think your mindset is wrong, but the context for the location of it is. Take it as you will.

I don't like many of your choices. Skarsgard is a no. Phoenix is a no. Haley is a no. Carrey is a no. Every black actor listed is a no (that's not racist; Joker is white, so he should not be portrayed as black). McConaughey and Gyllenhal are both a no. Gosling and Cumberbatch are both a no. Brody is a no.

Dafoe and Depp are the best choices.

? on Troy Baker as he isn't known as a live action actor. I quickly went through his 304 credits and only saw 3 on screen roles. Last one was in 2008. Unless there is a rumor or fan desire for him, I don't see why he needs to be included.

? on Cameron Monaghan as he is in the Gotham tv show already

Then again it is DC so anything could happen. :)

I haven't seen the show so maybe you know more about his character than I do but I saw the Russian roulette scene from Gotham and I was blown away with his take on the character. That, and the interrogation scene with him; I think he would make a killer Joker for an origin story.

I doubt they would do it because it would confuse Gotham fans. The show never confirms if he is the Joker. He is Jerome, he could be the Joker or he could be the person that inspired the Joker. Seeing him as the Joker would kind of ruin part of the show.

That's true, I forgot he's Jerome and not supposed to be The Joker. I think he would bring an interesting take to the character for sure though.

None of the above (below?). I think Matt Smith (11th Doctor from Doctor Who) would be a better choice than any of them!

Hi Jon Shanks,

Matt Smith would make an interesting Joker. His take on The Doctor was a tad more frenzied and crazed than the other 12 actors who played The Doctor, unless you count the people who only played The Doctor once.

I now have a mental image of The Joker wearing a red fez and a bow tie.


Polls may have up to 35 choices. This poll currently has 30 choices. The author could update this poll at his discretion.

I'm looking forward to seeing Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor.

Is Mark Hamil too old to be included?

I don't see why Mark Hamill would be too old. He certainly can do the voice of The Joker. Cesar Romero was 59 when he started playing The Joker in Batman (TV Series).

He would make a fine addition, but that would require an edit and a re-push.

Would Mark need a mustache that they could put makeup over?
They could even bring back Nicholson, If he'd do it that is. He's still got the chops.

Caesar Romero might have been one the to start the refusal-to-remove-facial-hair thing, before George Lazenby and Henry Cavil came along, but it probably goes back way into history.

  FYI, Martin Scorsese is no longer producing this film. You may want to update the introduction.
