    I’ve been watching the Joker deleted scene and all the blurred shots of Keoghan through the glass kind of look like Gyllenhaal.

    Makes me imagine an alternate mid/late-2000s where the other lead of Brokeback Mountain landed the part.

    I can easily see Heath as Pattinson’s Batman.

    I was thinking Cillian Murphy, but Heath could’ve pulled it off too.

    His Bruce had a weirdness to it that would’ve fit with Pattinson’s take.

    The only actors I could think of that could play this version of Gordon are Morgan Freeman, Laurence Fishburne and maybe Giancarlo Esposito. As for Bruce the only ones that come to mind are Johnny Depp, Heath Ledger, Daniel Day-Lewis, and River Phoenix. For Penguin maybe Viggo Mortensen and Gary Oldman. And Falcone I've always thought Alan Alda would've been great.
