I like both but I do prefer a prefer a clean and pretty joker
Leto’s Joker is actually extremely close to what I’d call perfect when it comes to appearance.

My ideal Joker unsurprisingly looks like the actor he was based on, that is, Conrad Veidt in The Man Who Laughs. Leto's a little too boyish looking in my opinion. I suppose the same can be said of Ledger, but his performance was so phenomenal that he managed to do something only the best of actors can do: he disappeared completely into the ugliness of the role.

Of course, the inclusion of Robbie's Harley Quinn in the DCEU adds a new dimension to the way we perceive Joker, I realize. A woman like that doesn't exactly swap spit w/ someone who looks like this. So, in that sense at least, Leto's casting was appropriate.

Absolutely. Been saying that for a while. Unfortunately not going to happen because of Ant-Man but it would be awesome.

Bruce/Batman - Jake Gyllenhaal
Joker - Walton Goggins
Alfred - Peter Capaldi
Gordon - Bryan Cranston

Yeah, I'd watch that.

Goggins as The Joker is basically perfect casting. I mean I would happily roll with someone like Sam Rockwell or Ben Foster, but Goggins? I'd mail Matt Reeves my checkbook.

Leto is not a good looking joker lmfao.

If he had a permanent smile, no grills or tattoo's...and a better suit..then he would be the perfect looking joker. But nope. He's the worst looking joker of all time.

I don’t think that would stop him from playing joker.

I would be shocked if his character is anything substantial to the whole of the MCU. And when you consider how much cross-pollination there's been, and in such quick succession (Fishburne to Ant-Man, Levi to Shazam), I don't think Goggins is off limits at all.

The older he gets, Hugh Laurie makes more of a greater choice for Alfred.

Not bad, but this place being as height obsessed as it is, a 6'2'' Alfred sets a high bar...

Speaking of Oscar Isaac, I could see him as Nightwing.

But for Batman?

Now, I can gel with someone not liking him for Batman, but let's not get crazy.

Goggins has those crazy eyes. He would be a great Joker.

But I love that Ben Foster pick. I never even thought of him till Boom mentioned it, and I think it's a perfect choice.

Yeah, that’s true

But I’ve always seen Alfred as being taller than Bruce.
