    I have to disagree.

    I'm still unconvinced, Andy.

    Harry Melling fits Mad Hatter way better than Joker, IMO.

    Also he showed he can be a scary psycho in The Devil All The Time where he didn't have much screentime but made an impression.

    Oh Schlosser just agrees with Andy on principle.

    It’s almost like he’s born to play Mad Hatter.

    If he never plays this character at all he will be to Mad Hatter what Willem Dafoe is to The Joker.

    I genuinely wanted him to be Mad Hatter back in the late 90's early 2000's but now he is too old and feels liek a hold over from the Burton Schumacher days... maybe he can be the Mad Hatter in that flash film

    Denis Lavant from Holy Motors would be my pick for older Jervis Tetch.

    Isn’t that what they did in Gotham?

    Denis Lavant would be incredible. Good for Pyg too.

    Hatter in Gotham is pretty much just the comics version, except he's played by a tall, skinny dude who looks like Jason Reitman.

    I don't see what aspect of the Joker you see in him. I don't think they're casting such a small name for such a big role as the Joker.

    I never said they were going to cast him in the role y'know. :shrug: So I don't know why you're bringing up how he's not a big enough name. I never argued he was. I just happen to think his talents and look would be better suited to playing the Joker. You don't. So it seems we're at an impasse.

    Again with the “not big enough of a name!”. The studio will not dictate who is cast for Reeves’ Joker. I’d literally bet my left testicle that when the guy is announced, the general audience will ask “who?”.

    They'll ask "who" just like when he cast the unknown actors Paul Dano, Zoe Kravitz and Colin Farrell.

    Most of the general audience don’t know Paul Dano by name. He’s not a celebrity type. Jamie Bell and Barry Keoghan are perfect examples for what I’m talking about and what Reeves is probably going for.

    shauner111 is always going on about how the general people don't know nothing, not even who Aquaman is. Paul Dano isn't some niche actor, he's been in movies for 20 years, some of them even very big, Oscar nominated movies!

    And some actors with Oscars aren’t movie stars. Ask your aunt and little cousin and next door neighbor who Dano is by showing just his face. Let’s see what they say. Film geeks are not the general audience. Most ppl would know his face not his name. By that logic, you saying Keoghan, Bell, Ahmed, Hoult, MacKay can never play Joker until they become bigger stars. If that’s the mentality behind this Joker’s casting, then I would tell them straight up that the way they’re going about it sucks and is extremely limited. You look for talent not names. Joker doesn’t need a movie star. It needs a good actor. And sometimes those two things are separate. Especially when you’re looking for an actor in his late 20’s or early 30’s who can play him.

    Aquaman? You mean when I said the general audience have no idea what his real name is or where he’s from, what the villains or supporting characters of Aquaman are? Lol yes, that’s a fact Jack.

    I know for a fact my sister knows who Paul Dano is because she had a crush on him after Little Miss Sunshine.

    People know who Dano is, dude. They might not know his name off the top of their heads but they've probably seen him in something.
