Re: The Batman Reboot Casting Thread - Part 6
I agree with those above. Although I enjoyed both Nicholson's '89 Joker and Ledger's TDK Joker and can understand the reasons that they were designed and characterized the way they were, there's a part of me that yens to see the classic Joker realized on film. When it comes to adapting characters for the big screen, Hollywood can be hit or miss and while I understand that it's very difficult to do, if there is any villain that deserves a perfect adaptation, it is indeed The Joker. He's the biggest and most popular baddie of all time.
A fully-realized Joker, making trouble in a fully-realized Gotham City, would be epic.
