Andy brought them to my attention. He’s still the world’s biggest Joker fan y’all.
Yea and you can tell how much Andy drives this thread. It's only moved four pages in almost a month and a half.
"IiIii'll bEeEe thuh bIBGGUUUR MAAAAN"
This is amazing art! What's it from?
How's he doing?
He's the nucleus, the straw that stirs the drink, etc.
He's the magliana.
What I’d most like to see is more horror influence. I’m all for prosthetics for the chin and cheekbones (unless they cast Harry Melling who wouldn’t need it). The original, Gwynplaine-inspired design was already so scary. Some horror influence I’d like to see would be from The Babadook, The Exorcist, and of course The Man Who Laughs.
I support the return of the perma-white and the perma-grin. I’m open to a few different directions, I just want him to be scary.
Kelley Jones does a really creepy Joker
My favorite Joker design is Dave McKean’s from Arkham Asylum. With prosthetics, you could definitely achieve something along these lines.
Then you have the 80s design from Aparo and Bolland. It’s classic, traditional, and sinister. It feels like a very respectful evolution of the original design.
Harry Melling is probably the best visual fit for the Joker that I’d like to see.
I'm here for all of that.
I'm starting to dig Melling after The Devil All The Time and The Queen's Gambit. Here's an unintentionally creepy shot I found from TQGambit
It's good to see more people coming around to the idea of Melling.
I kind of hope Batman has already fought The Joker in the Matt Reeves universe so if and when they introduce him we don't have to have another "Batman fights The Joker for the first time" type of story.
That's a cool shot !
I didn't resist to mess around with it a bit.
EDIT : upload again with a cleaned title logo.
That's cool! Not gonna lie I was about to edit it too but then I got lazy
Especially considering how closely TDK adhered to Joker’s first appearance in the comic. It’s a very faithful adaptation.
What I’d like to see is a movie inspired by the general concept of the Arkham Asylum (2009) game and Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth. We haven’t seen nearly enough of Joker in Arkham on film.
I'm slowly coming around to being more open to the idea of Melling as Joker, even though I think he'd be a better pick for Mad Hatter. That photoshop looks great.
I can see a lot of Melling in this picture, still not my first choice, but I'd be open to it.
I don't know if anyone has already proposed him (I'm a new user), but I think Adrien Brody could be the perfect choice.
In a dirty city like Reeves' Gotham, Joker may be interesting as a classy (but not-so-sober) gangster clown/showman who wears makeup to hide acid burns.
A mix between Nicholson and Phoenix, but also a version of Monaghan's Joker with an higher budget (and a better script!).
So, basically... BTAS' Joker!
Look how similar he is to Mask of Phantasm's Jack Napier!
Also, I think he could be possible, because:
1. He won an Oscar: considering this Joker will be contemporary to Phoenix's one, I think Reeves and Warner will choose a big name.
2. He is famous but not exactly a star: he was also in a lot of medium-little projects and often in noir movie. Just like Turturro, Dano, Farrell... and Pattinson himself!
3. He would be a perfect charismatic guru-serial killer, boss of a "clown Family" just like Charles Manson or Hannibal Lecter!
I'd never say no to Adrien Brody in this role, though I've been liking him for Magneto lately.
Brody been on my list since Affleck was cast.
I hadn't even thought about Brody but it's a great idea. Still haven't seen Peaky Blinders but this clip of him from it shows his creepy side. The piano music when he walks up to the window is actually kind of reminiscent of Joker's music in the Laughing Fish ep of BTAS. Kinda cool
Some more edits just for the fun of it :
So, another one with Melling. I did't see him in anything, but as far as the look goes, I really like the presence he seems able to give as Joker.
On this manip, his clothes are a bit weird, part of it because I'm too lazy to photoshopped a gangster hat (it never really looks good anyway), but also because I wouldn't mind some odd clothing like that. Add some stitches or patches, and he and he might look a bit like an alt' 90s anarchist punk. In the good way of course. Something that I feel wouldn't be that far from the overall vibe a lot of us are getting from The Batman.
Now Brody. Very interesting facial structure for the role, strong charisma and, as said above, how could we not see TAS Joker in him?
Even though I stayed lazy and kept the gangster look from the original photo, I'm sure the actor would pull off whatever Reeves wants for his universe. In my opinion, I think he would really excel at a sinister "Man Who Laugh" type Joker.
I would be cool with Brody.
Brody has been a popular choice from before Heath was cast. He’d be great.
I love the character but I still think it would be funny if Reeves just decided never to do the Joker.
Considering what a money-maker he is, I doubt that’s what happens, but still. Give some other rogues the spotlight.
I’m a tad burnt out on Joker too. Reeves could do an excellent story with Mr Freeze ala B:TAS.
