    Both Bettany and Hulme would be great choices if either was cast for Joker. But, people still don't know much about Hulme considering he doesn't have that big a list of movies. He was only mostly noticed for his role in The Matrix. Thus giving Bettany more of an upperhand, I'd be happy with either honestly. But Bettany capatilizes.

    Either one. Just pick one, WB.

    It's only a mere matter of the right one they choose. I don't want them to rush it.

    Well, we now know that the sequel won't be centered around The Joker as it was in the '89 Bat-film. If that isn't just a rumor.
    So, I wonder if that would affect someone's choice of taking on the role.

    It's been said that just because he won't have a large role like that of Nicholson's, doesn't mean it should be taken as a cameo. He'll have a decent amount of screen time, I would hope. Remember, there are alot of villains rumored to be in the sequel, most haven't been confirmed. I like the idea of having Joker's appearence differ from that in 89, only cause it's Nolan's franchise, which is nothing like that of Burton's.

    It actually has, according to some rumors. Sam Rockwell wanted the role, until he found out it wasn't gonna be as big of a part as B'89. Same with Hugh Jackman, who then went on to want Harvey Dent instead.

    Of course. It's Batman and he should have the most amount of screen time not The Joker.

    It definitely sounds like Bettany has interest in the role, but hasn´t been officially approached. With all the buzz generated on his name, I doubt WB won´t at least let him audition.

    I agree. Bettany really wants this role, many a fan wants him to get this role, he is a rising star in Hollywood - this has to go a long way in getting a screen test. If Bettany gets a screen test I have no doubt he can blow away the opposition.

    People who dis Bettany now, will not dis him after they've seen him as Joker.

    And if they do still dis him then, well, that's their problem anyway.

    Bettany rocks. :up:

    I agree.

    I think the majority of the doubters don't like him because his facial features don't resemble The Joker enough. Just listening to him on talk shows you know he is the perfect choice. His humour is perfect.

    I dont know how anyone can seriously say that Lachy Hulme, Adrien Brody or Crispin Glover look more Joker like than Paul Bettany. In the end it goes to what ones view is of the Joker - however give Mr. Bettany green hair, pale pale skin and ruby red lips and I think you have instant-Joker.

    It's the same case with Lucas, who constantly devotes himself to the role when at premieres or interviews. Even though fans seem to approve him with the role, I hope with all the talk he doesn't lose his chance of getting one along with Bettany for Joker.

    The fact that each of those actors (Hulme, Brody, and Glover) resemble Joker in their own way, along with wanting the role, could be just that. Both Hulme and Brody have shown alot of interest for this role, despite Glover who's more of a fan based choice and not in the running anymore. I honestly think that even though we haven't seen or heard much about him, Hulme would deliver greatly. Of course there's no doubt in my mind that Brody would simply be fantastic (watch The Pianist) even saying that BB was a great film. When it comes right down to it however, Bettany like I said before seems to have more of an upperhand then all of them.

    Intersting, what actors are in this WB list.

    Bettany looks perfect for The Joker.
