    If they want to change things up, David Keith as Rupert Thorne.

    Also, would Delaney Williams as Bullock be considered typecasting?

    Stanfield as Joker still slaps so hard.

    He’s better suited for Dent.

    After his recent controversy I don't think he'd get a high profile role like this sadly.

    Considering the high-profile controversy around Amber Heard hasn't affected any of her roles, I doubt something like Stanfield's chatroom drama, which a) seems fairly unknown compared to the Depp/Heard drama and b) he already came out to talk about, apologize for and explain (whether you take his explanation as fact is another story), is going to affect his career in any significant way.

    The singer Doja Cat had a super similar chatroom drama situation a year+ ago and barely anyone even remembers or cares anymore, and she's had top hits left and right since on the same label. Even if Lakeith is genuinely anti-Semitic, which is possible, I doubt it will affect his roles unless a director specifically doesn't want him for a role because of it. The only way a career is going to get hurt significantly like that is if it's criminal in nature (ie. Armie allegations), and even that sometimes doesn't last forever.

    That said, I think he has made himself a bit too obvious with his Joker campaigning - same with Bautista for Bane. I'm sure Reeves will choose somebody super surprising, even if we all have our fancasts, so I highly doubt it will be him. I'm sure he'd be pretty good though.

    Maybe, but that doesn't change the fact that he'd be perfect.

    Indeed.



    He'd also likely be available for an HBO series.

    Reeves doesn't strike me as the type of director to cast someone that could be anti-semitic.

    I know he’s suggested for everything but what about Idris Elba (channeling Stringer) as Two-Face?

    Mahershala Ali’s Cottonmouth was kind of what I’m picturing for the gangster side of Harvey’s Two-Face persona.

    Sterling K. Brown is probably my first choice for Harvey right now.

    It’s funny all three of these guys have been in the MCU

    The 50 year olds don’t look 30. That’s the difference.

    I have stumbled upon a perfect casting idea:

    Leslie Jordan for Bat-Mite

    I don't know if anybody said it already, but I'm 99% sure that Woody Harrelson will be in this trilogy.

    He is close to Reeves (he was in the last Planet of Apes) and to Serkis too (Carnage...).

    Take it as a presentiment hahah

    My only question is: which villain could he play?

    To me, he could be a great Hugo Strange.

    Strange is the only one that works for me. But I’d rather see someone else in the role. I don’t think Woody will be in the trilogy.

    Robin Williams would have been my pick for Hugo Strange :(

    Id take Harrelson as Zucco
