    The thing is that both of these actors CAN act, but for some reason they just suck in these roles.

    Monaghan is great on Gotham. That show is so much fun if you don't take it too seriously.

    I wish the makers would take it seriously.

    Serious or not, I don't want to cringe every two seconds.

    its about the script/director imo jared leto would of made an amazing joker with different direction/script i have seen enough of his work to know he can disappear in a role and immerse himself to a serious degree like how he did in dallas buyers club

    You guys are missing out! I suspect the show will gain more fans once it’s over. We really needed Gotham to temporarily save us from how bad things were for Batman on the cinematic side. It’s very comparable to Smallville. An Elseworlds tale on tv that holds us over while the cinematic side of things flounders.

    The Bruce and Jeremiah scene is no less serious than the majority of Joker episodes in Batman The Animated Series.

    That Hashtag Show also has character breakdowns for the film.

    De Niro would be an amazing get, but unlikely. Still, if Scorsese is still producing this, hmm.

    Hate to say it, but DeNiro doing any one of these CBMs doesn’t get me nearly as excited as it should. Unless the likes of Marty are directly involved with this involvement, I can’t help but feel it’s a simple cash grab.

    Yeah DeNiro has lent himself to some truly awful movies in the last few years.

    I don't care if De Niro is in this.

    Are they going to adapt "one bad day" origin and how likely Batman will appear in the film? Hard to imagine an origin story for Joker without Batman being at least a silhouette in the background.

    If De Niro is in it, cool. Great actor, great presence.

    If those casting call rumours are true, i bet this will be a totally humanized realistic incarnation of the Joker so much so that it will be not really that identical to the character.

    I'm going to bet he is a normal criminal who murders people but laughs ocassionally. He wont have green hair or permeawhite skin. No mouth scars or lipstick.

    Most likely will be like how they showed Jerome (in appearance). He looks very human just his behavior thats a bit different.

    There probably isn't going to be a batman in this. I will bet this won't even be called The Joker or even have Joker in the title. Probably won't be even marketed as a DC film either. It will be marketed and made like a scorcese crime film.

    So I feel like no one should really expect a full on comicbook joker

    Seems incredibly premature to make such assumptions.

    Besides, the whole reason they had to do that gimmicky **** with Jerome/Jeremiah is because WB didn't want them using The Joker's name and image in the show. Presumably because they are planning to use it themselves sooner rather than later.

    "...a hotel, a mental hospital, a bank and a “Good Morning” talk show are among the set pieces being designed for the film."

    The thing is... Cameron is in his early twenties and is SUPPOSED to be playing a younger version of the character. Leto has no excuse since he's in his damn 40s...

    Take this with a huge grain of salt, but Mark Hughes said this:

    I'll be very surprised if this turns out to be true, but for the moment, I'm skeptical.

    The main thing that makes me doubt this is the thing that came about before about this being set in the 80’s

    Maybe that will turn out to be bs

    If true, I don't like the sound of it. The thing that makes me think its possible, is that it sounds like the type of thing WB would want to happen.

    In other words, it sounds consistent with the WB type meddling we've seen up until now with their films.

    If Reeve wants it , fair enough, but I'm skeptical he'd want The Batman to be pigeonhole to another director and writers vision of Joker, Gotham city, and time frame. It doesn't scream the creative freedom that Reeves wanted with his film imo.
