I am for having Crispin Glover as The Joker, like you mentioned his role in Willard should convince others that he can play dark and twisted. And he looked really cool in the first Charlie's Angel's movie!

Since this is the official "Joker thread" I figure I'd post this here instead of creating a new one, being that there are so many Joker threads out there already. Hope you don't mind Doc. If anything just ask the mod to move it or whatever.

Anyway, I don't know if you guys already know this or not but I haven't seen a thread about this yet. I got this info. from BOF and its really not that new but I just hadn't been there in a while. I mean I've seen all these threads about who will play the Joker, including us in this thread, but this might turn out to be a mute point after all cause it seems that Nolan and his team already have two actors in mind for the role. This is what the article said...

"Two actors are up for the role of The Joker in BATMAN BEGINS AGAIN. Australians Lachy Hulme (LET'S GET SKASE) and Bruce Spence (ROTK:EE) are rumoured to be stepping into Jack's boots. It's clear that they're going for thin, lanky and spooky, and will probably save on makeup and special effects if The Spence is cast." - BOF

The Spence guy, for those who don't know, is the "Trainman" guy from the Matrix movies. I gotta admit that guy really was spooky and creepy lookin but in a bummish kinda way. I don't know if he's the right guy for the Joker what do you guys think?

I know it's not very detailed, but I like the look of the joker in the "arkham asylum" comics. I could see Spence, Hume, (or Glover) making that 'look' with a little special effect.

It may not be popular, but I am for making the character very dark. What I mean is give him the colorful, snazzy suits, and the even the hat. BUT, the camera work, should make him dark, always in the shadows, never giving you a bright, colorful look at him. It is hard to balance "clown" and "evil", but i prefer the "evil" look, with burnt red eyes piercing at you from the shadows. (which,like mentioned before, shows how he is similar to batman/wayne)

Evil eyes in the shadows and a good laugh are all i need for my joker.

I think Nolan's Joker should just change his costume a tiny little bit from Nicholson's.

Also if he appears in the movie, I like to see a scene where he goes to Arkham Assylum and meets Harleen Quinzel so we can have Harley Quinn later in the sequels.

I believe the opposite; if Nolan plans to include the Joker in BB2, then he needs to look different in every way. Younger actor, different makeup techniques, completly different costume. Maybe he should be kept simple and classy with tuxedos, like in the Batman: Harley Quinn cover. Or you could go the mysterious route and have in a trenchcoat, as Ross drew him on the cover of "Mythology".

I highly doubt Bruce Spence will ever be Joker considering he is 60 years old right now. I think they want someone who is younger and closer to Bale's age who can carry on in future films if necessary. Out of all the names I have heard being thrown around I like Lachy Hulme the most.

Dude no offense, like seriously tho, it seems like you got some good ideas here but its kinda hard to make out what you're saying with all those errors man. Next time proofread a little before you post.

Thanks for being the first one to ask about this. I was a bit confused as too what he was trying to get at as well. I checked out the link he provided and had to look around for the Joker.

Question Re: The Joker

I was curious as to how his face will be if and when he is used in a sequel.

If they are going to try to create a more realistic tone even for the joker will his "look" still be resultant of the tried and tested chemical accident storyline or will his makeup be part of his lunacy. Basically an eveil clown on the inside who shows it on the outside by always wearing clowns makeup thus forgoing the upturned mouth and such.

What do you guys think>

Default Re: The Joker

I gotta admit he does look pretty badass in that one as a comic, but I really think it's kinda the same thing as the real life one in the other pic. Remember things tend to look more badass in the comics than in real life. On the other hand Technobat's real life version of the Joker looks insane.

Oh yeah, btw, does anybody know who's portraying the Joker in that real life pic of him with Harley? And that brings me to a second question who's portraying Harley in that pic? I dunno about you guys but if Harley is ever introduced in one of these films, I think that's definitely how she should look, tight latex and all.

I think the representation so far of Joker was in Greyson. The guy who played him not only had the goofy lighthearted side that Joker can portray (like the shots with him and the little girl skipping in some sort of park), and the dark and twisted side as well (shot of him bare-chested with an ax in his hand, him in some sort of revolving chair).

Also relating to the topic, what instances in the comics would you like to see in a sequel featuring Joker?

I like in The Killing Joke while he's basically torturing Gordon with pictures of his bleeding daughter, he's jumping around doing a musical number. That would be great in a sequel. After all, what's one of the last thing the regular audience would expect from a character like that?

It should be a little bit frayed, and look recked with some nics and scratches, and the colour should be a bit off and not perfectly STRAIGHT PURPLE (since it kinda got bleached in the acid).
So kind of like the Beetlejuice suit.

I heard that they were maybe going to pick Bruce Spence but is he too old, considering that the Begins film setting is around Year One, Year Two?

Bruce Spence is also in Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars Episode 3.

He looks too old IMO.

I wonder if they would use the "stand up comedian" origin. That was a cool look at him some what.

I've re-thought the suit idea. And maybe the tuxedo would be a good way to go, but with purple pin stripes

Default Re: The Joker

IMO

ORIGIN:
For lack of a better name, "Jack Napier" is having a one man comedy act. Bruce Wayne is in attendace. He fails miserably. After the show, Bruce offers him some money, which he rudely refuses. Later, he joins a group (not the mob) to provide for his pregnant wife and they rob a place called Monarch Playing Cards. Bats shows up and defeats (not kills) everyone there, except for "Napier". A chase scene involving the batmobile and a motorcycle ends a AXIS CHEMICALS. They fight up on a balcony, Bats not fighting to the extent, knowing this man, and Bats trips "Napier"(accidently) and catches him, ala '89. Instead of being captured by the authorities and being an embarassment to his family, he lets go of Bats' hand and falls into a vat of acid. Batman looks down for a brief moment, and walks away. Right after that, a sickly whit hand pops out. AOut last shot is of stressed out red eyes...

LOOK:

A suit that is bleached purple when "Jack" falls in. A sickly bright yellow flower
that squirts acid. Of course, the bleached white skin, the red lips. Make the green hair a dark green, almost black, but clearly green. His eyes, make them look like he has red eye, wit red pupils. And have him smile not all of the time, just most of it, and have him frown when he is surprised, or even scared.

yeah...and he was in two Mad Max films......i would have liked to have seen him as the Scarecrow, but he would good as Joker. He has the physical look down pat. Can he give the performance of his life though? Other than him i can see, Hulme, Roth or Law as the other contenders.....

Bruce Spence is too old, Jude Law sucks for Joker, and Hulme and Roth I wouldn't mind but I am more with Hulme he has got the perfect Joker face.
