    I could actually kind of see it with this graphic someone put together.

    I think he's a bit weird looking, so should be way better than Jared Leto.

    Now that acting I'm not sure about, al though I've always liked his acting.

    He's a better actor than anyone who's ever touched the role and I'm including Heath in that.

    However, With Todd Phillips at the helm, and two other Joker projects in the works with Jared Leto still attached for some reason, I'm struggling to get excited about this.

    The only thing I meant by acting is how he portrays The Joker. Seems like a weird thing to tackle. I think he'd obviously be great, though.

    I love Joaquin, but I wouldn't rate any of the performances I've seen of his over Nicholson in Cuckoo's Nest.

    Her is a fantastic performance considering it's a film with him on screen entirely.

    It certainly is, and it did come to mind before I made that post.

    I'm a sucker for a good origin story. More than happy to give this a chance.

    Re: Joker Origin Movie (TBA)

    Joaquin Phoenix was tied to the Joker for some time now and I was happy to hear that it is now confirmed for him playing the role. I think from all the roles I've seen from him, it was a Match made in heaven for him in this role. I wonder though and alot of people are wondering about this, and that is about the timeline of all of this and does it fit what is going on with the JL and all as a prequel or an alternate Universe type of thing hmm

    And Nicholson has so much range he's played that same character for 40+ years

    Re: Joker Origin Movie (TBA)

    Don’t get me wrong I love the guy I just never really pictured him as Joker and still don’t. But then again I didn’t think Ledger would be a good Joker either so what do I know. Inb4 Grim says something about Ledger not being a good Joker
