The Joker who is obviously the most famous Batman villain is finally getting his own solo film brought to you by Warner Bros./DC. Todd Phillips the director of “The Hangover”trilogy is set to direct the solo Joker film.
The Joker has been played by many different actors over the years through animated movies and live-action movies. Most notably, the Joker has been played by Cesar Romero from the old TV show, Jack Nicholson in the 1989 “Batman” film by Tim Burton, Heath Ledger in 2008’s “The Dark Knight” and Mark Hamill voiced the character through animated films and video games.
As far as the new Joker goes, it makes a whole lot of sense to have a comedy director make the film ’cause the Joker is obviously about making jokes and stuff.
Who’s gonna be the new Joker? I hope they stay away from Jared Leto ’cause I never liked him as the Joker. They probably won’t pick any of the previous Jokers ’cause all the previous ones would be too old. Since this is an “origin” story, they’ll probably find someone young. Will they pick a big name actor or a total unknown? They’re probably gonna go for a big name, I bet. Will Harley Quinn be involved in the solo Joker movie? Probably. That Harley Quinn character is very popular and she’s probably gonna be featured in other films a lot more often. The Joker and Harley were important together so of course, she’s gonna be a part of the story for sure, no doubt.
I’m all for a solo Joker movie just as long as they don’t try to rip off Nicholson or Ledger.
Looking forward to seeing how this film is gonna go, though.
