With the culmination of the Nolan trilogy with the Dark Knight Rises this summer and the recent Justice League announcement, a lot of us have been thinking ahead to a new film franchise. I am no different. The thing that I have had on my mind most prominently is whether or not the Joker would return. After the (as some would say) unbeatable performance by Ledger, it is understandable that WB would take some caution in bringing the character, which the late actor so skillfully mastered, back to the big screen. I personally would love to see him return, even if the idea is controversial. I realize some would like to see new villains step into the lime light, but could they really pull of a Batman franchise without any mention or appearance of the antithesis of Batman? I find that hard to believe. So what do you guys think? Do you hope the Joker returns? Do you think it's in the realm of respectability? I'd like to hear your thoughts. On another note, how do you think this Joker would be approached? I have already been considering what I think would be best. I would like to see a new comically dark approach on the villain, not to comical (Hamill) yet also not too dark either (Ledger). I think they should play with the Ace Chemical story line a bit, and we should see the death of Jason Todd (if he makes an appearance that is). I also think the Joker would need to be played by an actor who is not afraid to pioneer in a new personality for the character, I personally have no interest in seeing an attempt at Ledgers joker once again! So, in addition to your opinions, how do you think the new Joker should look, act and feel in this new franchise?
